Environmental Living in a Native Bush Parkland
150 Cascade Dam Road, Derby
Enjoy the totally private peaceful existence with only the sounds of the Derby River flowing at night... Situated on 4.469 (just over 11 acres) of partially cleared land, which includes 3 streams, plenty of native bush area, mossy grasslands and outstanding tree fern gullies. This being the main reason the current owner originally purchased the property; for these man ferns and other rare protected ferns as the Austral king fern, some of both over 200 year old. Pure unadulterated creek water available as there is no farmlands or commerce above this property. Creeks still running February of one of the most extreme hot summers. Potential to develop 20 percent, under “14.0 Environmental Living Zone” (available in Dorset Interim Planning Scheme 2013.) Bowling green grass/moss lawns throughout the property that comes complete with free range native mowers…(Pademelon’s and wallabies). 3 Lifetimes of firewood available on the property. The main house is a rustic, Mud-brick home offering: 2 Bedrooms, open plan living room and kitchen on the ground level, which includes a cleverly designed functional and constructed open fire place built from rocks. A step up leads to bedroom 1, the bathroom and a store room, while the 2nd bedroom is upstairs. The north of the house is surrounded by a covered veranda. You will also find a second structure situated on the top of the block with its own private road. “The Studio” is still a shell that has 2 garage/workshops or bike shed areas, a potential bedroom, kitchen and a mud-brick laundry or toilet. While there’s additional storage with the lock-up 4 x 3 meter shack, which has double opening doors, overlooking a tree fern gully.
