The old Eccleston School, first established in 1867, is being offered for sale after 26 years of private ownership. The property is set on two parklike acres and looks over the Allyn River valley and an extensive cattle farm towards the Barrington Tops State Forest and National Park.

The property has potential to combine lifestyle and income with the opportunity for B & B style accommodation, Health Retreat, Farm Stay or your own private residence. It has been a place for artists to escape the world and immerse themselves in creativity in an idyllic rural setting without losing connectivity yet surrounded by established trees and gardens that attract an abundance of bird life.

The insulated 1970's brick house has inviting warmth with wood heating that welcomes you in to the spacious lounge room and adjoining dining area. The home is comfortable with three spacious bedrooms all with beautiful views and an additional sunroom. For your added convenience the bathroom and separate toilet are both centrally located. The original kitchen has sweeping views and features ample bench top and storage space including a dishwasher and large walk-in pantry.

The timber schoolhouse sits on the site of the original school. Generous in size and light filled with large windows, high ceilings and timber floorboards, it is perfect for creative pursuits, home office or B & B style accommodation.

The school amenities block has been converted to accommodate guests. It is sun drenched and inviting with ensuite toilet and basin. This space looks out towards the river from a private timber deck and the screened entertaining area at the front allows a cool place to unwind on summer afternoons.

Improvements include a single lock up garage and the original shelter shed has been converted for use as a workshop or storage shed. The NBN satellite is connected and installed and WiFi works well. Water is abundant with 5 rainwater tanks with a capacity of 58,000 litres (approximately) plus there is a bore that can be reactivated to provide extra water.

Nature's playground is only a short drive away with rainforests to explore in Chichester State Forest and the Barrington Tops National Park. There is also the tranquil setting of Ladies Well on the Allyn River for swimming and picnics.

This property is special and an inspection is a must to appreciate what it has to offer.
