Micalong Cottage at 426 Nottingham Road in Wee Jasper may be modest in size, but it has volumes of appeal for those looking for a genuine rural idyll. The home has two bedrooms and one bathroom, a large entertainers deck, and sits on 18.97 hectares of land. It’s around 90 minutes from Canberra and 60 minutes from Yass.
The NBN reception here is over 30 Mbps, making it the perfect retreat from which to work, write, game or stay up to date with friends and family via video chat, or go off the air entirely to enjoy the countryside and the surrounding natural beauty of the region.
Nestled in a valley and surrounded by the rolling hills of the Brindabella National Park, Micalong Cottage is close to the township of Wee Jasper and named for the Micalong Creek. The countryside is constantly changing through the seasons, from beautiful green fields and crystal clear creeks and rivers in spring to the occasional sprinkle of snow during winter.
The cottage will keep inhabitants warm through winter with a slow combustion stove in the living room providing heating for the home. There are two bedrooms, both are large and can accommodate more than one bed, making this the perfect home to invite friends to for get-togethers, hiking, bushwalking, fossil collecting, or photographing the great outdoors.
There is a family bathroom for long hot soaks after exploring the countryside, and a kitchen with plenty of storage space. There are timber floors and carpets throughout, warm underfoot in the bedrooms, a full laundry with external access, and the current owners run sheep on the property to keep the grass trim and make honey with the property’s own bees.
The most outstanding part of the home, said LJ Hooker Sales Agent Nic Salter-Harding, is the exceptionally large outdoor deck.
“The external deck at Micalong Cottage doubles the living space of the home and it has a beautiful aspect, looking across the valley to the hills,” Mr Salter-Harding said.
“Because of the elevation of the home, the climate here is perfect for outdoor living throughout spring, summer and autumn, and for those who love our countryside, there is so much to explore.”
The area is known for spectacular views, crystal clear streams and rivers, wildlife, caves, semi-precious gemstones, fossicking and fossils.
“It’s the perfect rural retreat, whether you are looking for a holiday home to spend time with the family while working from home, or whether you love the countryside and the idea of having a place of peace and quiet where you can grow your own veg, have your own beehives, and run your own goats or sheep.”
The property has an estimated price range of $460,000 to $500,000.
