This property has it all!!
A way to earn money by not even leaving home
Converted Tram into an American Diner
Four bay Colorbond shed
15 Acres of land
And lots, lots more!!
This very unusual property needs to be inspected to understand & appreciate everything on offer for the very realistic price of $525,000.
The owners have enjoyed their time here very much, but now is the time to move on to another challenge, the price for this property represents excellent value for money, it also offers someone the chance to acquire a truly unique part of the Dorrigo Plateau. The fact that there are two homes here mean it could either be for extended family or to do what the present owners have been doing, which is rent the two bedroom cottage out as a holiday let, or you may want to rent it out on a permanent basis.
Some of the features of the original 3 bedroom farmhouse are Stained glass & Lead-light windows & doors, lounge room with bay window & window seat, slow combustion fire and reverse cycle air, Axminster carpets throughout, sun-room, renovated bathroom with claw foot bath and separate shower. There are 2 covered verandahs where you can relax and just watch the world go by!
The second dwelling being a comfortable farm stay cottage features 2 bedrooms (sleeps 5 people), lounge with a cosy slow combustion wood fire also a reverse cycle air conditioner for the comfort of all the guests when they stay, a wrap around verandah that has views down to the river and to the rolling paddocks.
Positioned in the garden is a 1929 Adelaide Tram that has been converted into a 1950's style American Diner, with great attention to detail and authenticity, this also has reverse cycle air conditioning.
As a part of your own piece of paradise just unwind by the river where you can often see Platypus, or just have a swim or even do some canoeing or fishing.
This property is only 19kms to Dorrigo on a sealed road, where you (and your guests) will find World Heritage National Parks, Waterfalls and bush walks. The township is well serviced, even boasting it's own Hospital. There is also the Rainforest Centre with the Skywalk, Cafe, BBQ and picnic facilities. Dorrigo also has many clubs and activities from Rotary, Lions CWA, Hospital Auxiliary, Meals on Wheels, variety of Church groups, View Club, Garden Club and the list goes on, certainly no shortage of things to do and places to go. Coffs Harbour, Grafton and Armidale being a comfortable 1 hour and fifteen minute drive away, no busy traffic problems here.

Murray and Jane - Dorrigo 1 Real Estate I would like to sincerely thank you both for the assistance that you gave my husband and I in the selling of our family home at the end of 2018. Although words cannot express the extent of our gratitude, we would like to offer this testimonial as the least that we can do in return for everything you have done for us. When I first contacted your office late last year in search of an honest and supportive real estate, I was extremely apprehensive and nervous. I was about to commence the process of selling my late parent's and formerly grandparent's home which had been in our family for well over 50 years and so my emotions were riding a roll-a-coaster. However within minutes of speaking with you, my nerves had calmed and I felt complete trust in handing over such a precious process to Dorrigo 1. From that first point of contact not only did you treat us with utmost respect but you were sincere and showed great empathy to our emotional state and situation. At our first meeting in person, your extensive local knowledge and clear explanation of the legalities involved in selling property, assured us that we had made the right choice in selecting your business with such an important aspect of our lives. Murray, your regular updates both in person and via text and phone, kept us in the picture along every step of the journey. The reassurance that you gave us enabled us to be able to focus on other aspects of our busy lives. Your background in the building industry was such a valuable asset when discussing the condition of our home and in determining a realistic price range. You provided us with recent statistics and comparative properties both on the market and recently sold in the local area. Your local knowledge was amazing. Throughout the entire process Jane and yourself demonstrated exemplary customer service. At all times you made us feel your 'A1' customer. Your mediation with our legal representatives, local council and other parties involved was exceptional. Thank you for providing us with a service that was supportive, personal, genuine and stress free and ultimately a great outcome for all involved. Adele & Roger Rae

I can wholeheartedly recommend Dorrigo 1 Property Sales to all interested in either buying or selling. I have done both with Dorrigo 1. Murray Slender goes well above and beyond the job role, to the extent of clients becoming friends with both himself and Jane. I would certainly use Dorrigo 1 again without any hesitation.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN It is with great pleasure that we recommend Murray Slender and Jane Wells of Dorrigo 1 Real Estate to you for your consideration. We have known Murray and Jane, both personally and professionally, for approximately seven years. After listing our rather unique property for sale with Dorrigo 1, Murray and Jane worked tirelessly to find the most fitting purchaser for our home and then the absolutely perfect property for us for our retirement years. Both Murray and Jane made the whole process as smooth as possible, keeping us fully appraised as to the proceedings at every stage. Nothing we asked was ever a problem. We found them both to be professional, circumspect, knowledgeable, honest and pleasant at all times. If you need to sell/purchase a property, you cannot do better than to list with Dorrigo 1 Real Estate, and have Murray Slender and Jane Wells act as your agent. We wish Murray and Jane continued success in the future, they are certainly deserving of nothing less. Bruce and Lynne Lawson
