The location is wonderful, the house is superb and the granny flat is so useful - but it will probably be the amazing gardens that clinch the deal here!
Encompassing 3.5 acres of sweeping park-like gardens, The Gums sits on the banks of the Lachlan River, just 8km from Condobolin, and an hour from Parkes, Forbes and Lake Cargelligo.
Nearby Mount Tilga is famous for its spectacular views, while water sports enthusiasts, fishermen and birdwatchers regularly converge on Gum Bend Lake.
The current owners have been working on the gardens at The Gums for 28 years, filling them with natives, roses, agapanthus, cliva lilies, two weeping mulberries, claret ash, weeping willows and many more varieties.
Frequently used for entertaining, weddings and photo shoots, musical recitals, fundraising and club gatherings, the gardens have featured in competitions, the Australian Open Garden Scheme and the Condobolin Garden Festival.
With lawns running down to the water's edge, and numerous garden rooms and pergolas, a favourite spot is the deck overlooking the river - perfect for that end-of-day drink.
A 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom, double brick home is centrally placed in the garden, with many great features, including an office, bar/entertaining area, mezzanine floor, 8.3k solar system, wood and gas heating, and a new evaporate cooler.
At a glance:
• 2-car garage with granny flat attached + large workshop with hoist
• Powered marquee area + numerous power outlets and garden lights
• Easy irrigation, with a trailer-mounted pressure pump plus auxiliary back-up pump
It's easy to see why the current owners love this property so much - now it's someone else's turn to enjoy this dream home and gardens.
