Lifestyle Block With Family Home

9 Callistemon Drive, Federal

This is a wonderful opportunity to secure a fantastic lifestyle block within walking distance to Federal village. The home sits high with a sunny northern, rural aspect and although there are some cosmetic and minor works to be done to complete the home you can take advantage of this and apply your own fishing touches. The property offers loads of potential because of its size (3.9 acres or 1.594Ha) and location and has been previously tenanted.

The block can be enjoyed as a big fun family block as it is mostly cleared and one could be self-sufficient by planting fruit and nut trees, a vegetable garden and run some chickens. You could also have a pony or two and there is room to add a pool, studio or granny flat, (STCA).

There is a massive 336,000 litres of water storage.

Come and see for yourself the opportunity that is now on offer here.
