BY DEFINITION…..Farmlet owners are typically city workers who want to own rural land without operating a full farm. A farmlet often includes a large vegetable garden, the occasional barn, tractor, and even farm or domestic animals, such as sheep and chickens.
This cosy cottage is set snug into the landscape and is situated on a 16-acre (approx) block with permanent water, basalt soil and lush pastures making the property a productive plot. Located 25 minutes (approx) from historic Braidwood, only 1 and half hours drive to Canberra and just over 3 hours to Sydney airport (approx.).
This cottage, circa early 1900s offers a cosy living room with Nectre fireplace, good kitchen and bathroom, two bedrooms plus a third room suitable as a home office. While the cottage is comfortable it still requires some work here and there but is in good condition for its age.
