Back to Nature – 160 Acres at Mount Warning
Here is a great opportunity to secure a very rare offering, rural properties of this calibre are usually tightly held.
ZONING: RU2 Rural and subject to Part 7(l) EP habitat
Located on the north face of Mt Uki, adjacent to Mt Warning, in the Tweed Valley in northern NSW. It is on the southern side of Mt Warning Rd (bitumen sealed), about 15 km from Murwillumbah, 5 km from the township of Uki and 2 km from the end of Mt Warning Rd.
This stunning property is strategically located in a most desirable area of the Tweed Valley, with northerly aspect, offering privacy, space, abundant flora and fauna, yet only 15 minutes by road to the Murwillumbah CBD.
The property consists of north facing open forested slopes and gullies rising from about 20m elevation on the northern boundary to 130m in the southern corner, which backs onto the Mt Warning National Park. There are small pockets of rainforest, the property being approximately 70% timbered with the remaining being forest regrowth over previously cleared banana plantation. The northerly aspect has extensive elevated views down the Tweed Valley and to the Pacific Ocean, the upper slopes and summit of Mt Warning are also visible from several sites on the property.
There are several excellent potential home sites on the property, advantaged by local geography and northerly vistas.
There are several gullies offering dam potential for bulk water storage for irrigation or recreation. Domestic water supply is easily handled by tanks, fed by dwelling roof run-off due to the adequate rainfall (over 2 metres annually) of the area.
The property previously had power and landline to a now derelict dwelling.
Potential buyers may assess the full development options by referring to the Strategic planning section of the Tweed Shire Council's website.
Apart from private residence building, the site may be excellent for an Eco-tourism development within council guidelines.
Nurturing of existing timbers and planting of forest timber species in the regrowth areas for long term harvesting should perhaps also be considered.
FLORA AND FAUNA
The property has enjoyed minimum interference from human or feral animal presence for many years, allowing proliferation of the area's natural wildlife. There are populations of wallaby, echidna, koala, and multiple reptile and bird species.
