The Elms, Armidale, 2350
A new begining, a wonderful lifestyle
A new beginning, a wonderful lifestyle
“The Elms” is located just 11 kilometres from Armidale, at the end of Middle Farm Road. With a distant neighbour on each side of the property and a large nature reserve at the rear, the setting is as peaceful than you can imagine. The homestead really is enjoying a new beginning.
The homestead was once a Department of Education teacher’s residence. It is a 1920’s hardwood frame, weatherboard building which was relocated from Kellys Plains (the oldest school in the district) to the current site. The building has been completely refurbished with new Colourbond roof, Comfort Plus laminated windows, completely insulated in the ceiling, the (new plaster) walls and underfloor.
Other refurbishments and improvements include all new electrical wiring and plumbing, plus the addition of solar hot water with an electrical booster.
Nestled next to three magnificent old and healthy elm trees, the home’s new site is believed to have been the location of another home, long gone. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, open plan kitchen/living room, walk-in pantry plus a study off the master bedroom. Entertaining is an absolute delight courtesy of the generous covered deck . The deck even has a plumbed outdoor bath for the not-so-crowded moments.
A paved outdoor area is home to a pizza oven and 8 raised/covered garden boxes used for growing fresh vegetables.
Inside, the kitchen has all stainless steel work surfaces. Heating is a wood fire supplemented with gas if necessary and there is an attic ladder into the ceiling space with flooring for additional storage.
There is also a mostly-buried 20 foot container used as storage and as a workshop, with a roof extended to create a carport.
Water security and quality is assured with the house having access to 2 x 22,000 litre water tanks and one 46,000 litre tank (half of which is partitioned for firefighting). Water is kept clean with gutter guard, leaf-excluders and a 500 litre ‘first flush’ network of pipes under the house.
The well-fenced paddocks also have ample water with 4 dams and one trough. There are various small pens for the current occupants, some pigs and goats plus larger paddocks for cattle. There is a set of cattle yards and loading ramp at the front gate. Roads to and around the house have been well built of quality gravel.
Garbage collection at the front gate and post at the end of Middle Farm Road. The current owners utilise is 4G wireless service for internet, however NBN wireless is now available.
“The Elms” truly is a wonderful, tranquil spot to retire to, or to raise a family. The quality of the improvements including the thoughtfully restored home is outstanding.
