The topography is mostly flat, usable, and flood free (including the recent 2022 catastrophic weather event). The property is landscaped beautifully and the outlook from anywhere on this property inside or outside is a lush green country landscape of rolling hills, gorgeous native trees and grazing cattle.
You will enter the main house via a double front door off a huge hardwood timber deck into a separate entry way, leading you to the main living area and kitchen. The main home has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 separate large living areas.
The modern kitchen is a chefs delight with loads of bench space, a 900 mm oven, an induction cook top and a large walk-in pantry. The laundry is located conveniently off the kitchen.
The floors are hardwood timber throughout the main home with the extension and attached flat sporting polished concrete.
The huge main bedroom is a very spacious retreat, it includes a large en-suite bathroom, a generous walk - in robe and fantastic views out to the rolling paddocks.
Outdoor living is at its best with an alfresco living area on the rear deck with the in ground salt water pool straight off the main house deck surrounded by glass fencing. This is a great place to sit and enjoy the views while watching the kids in the pool.
The second living area is massive and also has easy access to the pool and outdoor living. Just off this living area are another 2 large bedrooms. The perfect teenage retreat or a potentially a 3rd living arrangement as this area can be locked off from the the main home creating 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and utility room.
For the extended family or for rental income is an attached 5-year-old architectural style one bedroom flat with a loft, a generous modern bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and its own surround timber deck including an outdoor kitchen. A large planter box garden acting as a privacy screen separates these dwellings maintaining privacy for both homes.
The property is set up as a hobby farm with sheep, chickens with a large coupe, pens for pigs and a huge kitchen garden big enough to feed two to three families. The current family regularly enjoys the satisfaction of paddock to plate dining. There are numerous fruit trees scattered around the property along with loads of native bushes encouraging native bee's and bird life.
For all your equipment it has a 2-car garage with a double size workshop and a double carport. (Also has a bathroom and laundry sink)
A second parking area at the front of the property has been created a perfect place for parking if you're wanting to build a shed for a business.
For water there is a bore with its own shed protecting the pump. A dam and 2 water tanks 1 x 64 k litres and the flat has its own 20 K litre tank.

About Crabbes Creek
# The recent catastrophic weather event flooded the village of Crabbes Creek however the community rallied around and fixed roads, cleaned up homes and all affected properties were back functioning within days. A lovely caring community and the residence of this town are so grateful that it was not adversely affected like other area's of the Northern Rivers.
The lively little village of Crabbes Creek (known affectionately to the locals as, 'The Creek' ) thrives around the 110-year-old Community Hall and a very popular local general store. An added bonus is the a very cute 100+ year old primary school.
Set in an ideal lush green valley that hugs the meandering creek. A sleepy village Crabbes Creek is not! There is so much happening in this little community pretty much every day. At the hall there is morning/evening Yoga twice a week, Meditation Monday nights, Community Hall meetings and food vendors servicing the community at the hall regularly on Thursdays, Fridays and Authentic Thai takeaway every Saturday.
Located just opposite the hall is the General Store stocking everything from a huge alcohol selection, petrol and gas to easy prep meals for the family, fresh veggies and health foods. Honestly, if you didn’t want to leave ‘The Creek’, this shop supplies everything you would need. Plus, they are super friendly and it’s a fun place to drop in, pick up your mail and catch up on news.
The new Northern Rivers Rail Trail is currently being developed at Crabbes Creek, this will be a fantastic benefit to familys looking for a bike ride for kids or just a beautiful local place to walk.
Add to all this, ‘The Creek’ is ideally located approx 5 minutes’ drive to the nearest beach wandering through a gorgeous country road of cane fields and cattle farms. The beach feels like a remote stretch with the Byron headland in the distance to the south. An added bonus! It is dog and horse friendly.
Crabbes Creek feels like it's away from everything yet it is so conveniently and centrally located to all major towns in the Northern Rivers area.
