“Copnor” sits high on the Great Dividing Range on top of a hill that is Black Mountain.

“Copnor” is about 25 km north of the regional centre of Armidale and only 12 km south of the proud small town of Guyra.

At 168 hectares (415 acres), “Copnor” blends the classic Australian country lifestyle with traditional farming.

The north-facing 5-bedroom homestead is effectively insulated and features a stone fireplace in each of the two living rooms plus a slow combustion stove as well as electric cooking in the kitchen. And there are plenty of timber resources to keep those home fires burning.

The current owners have installed insulation throughout the home, including double glazing on some windows. This has proven effective in keeping the home cool in summer and warm in winter. Heating costs are minimal, and the bedroom door sometimes gets left open in the middle of winter.

The home itself is set in a garden of established exotic trees.

There is abundant domestic and livestock water security with a bore, tanks and a reticulation system throughout the property.

If the teenagers don’t take it over, there’s an operational 2-stand woolshed, separate sheep and cattle yards, stables and excellent fencing that includes a central laneway. Fencing is in very good order.

The country is predominately basalt open grazing with some healthy shelter areas. There are a few excellent sites for someone to install tourism tents / tiny homes. The vistas are delightful. The central flat is possibly long enough to install an airstrip (depending upon requirements!).

As well as currently running cattle, “Copnor” has a wealth of natural fauna. In addition to the usual kangaroos, there are resident koalas, elusive emus and the occasional wandering deer. Of course, native birds abound.

Even though the Armidale school-bus pick-up point is less than a mile away, Copnor is located at the end of a quiet road. Privacy is a feature.

“Copnor” is a very special property that has been a wonderful family home for the current owners for over 15 years.

Now the opportunity to enjoy the property is yours.
