Dear Birding-aus
I guess this might get the shove as it is advertising but seems a wonderful opportunity for a city birder who's about to tree shift, so if it's acceptable please put out to the group

8.45 ha at Floraville-East Lake Macquarie, New South Wales

This property is in a beautiful secluded bush setting, 10 minutes to ocean beaches and 10 minutes to Lake Macquarie. Newcastle CBD is 20 minutes away. Sydney is one and a half hours by freeway.

6.891ha of the site is subject to a Voluntary Conservation Agreement (VCA) which protects flora and fauna as well as preventing any further development. It is zoned 7[1] conservation primary. The property is part of the Floraville Ridge Native Vegetation Corridor (which covers 200 ha. of bushland) On the property a beautiful rainforest lies below a cliff escarpment with views to the sea. Bird life is abundant and includes the Regent Bowerbird, Coucal Pheasant, Brown Pigeon, Eastern Whipbird, Eastern Rosella, King Parrot and Golden Whistler. Also seen around the property are bandicoots, squirrel gliders, possums, Diamond Pythons and Eastern Water-dragons. Under the Threatened Species Act, the property is habitat for the Powerful Owl and Tetratheca Juncea [Black eyed Susan] and Syzgium paniculatum [Magenta Lilly Pilly].

The house is an extended dwelling comprising an architect-designed addition to the original historic cottage. The extension is built of glass, brick and western red cedar. The 3 - 4 bedroom extended dwelling is surrounded by a charming and sizeable low maintenance garden. There are two bathrooms, two sitting rooms, a combustion heater, timber floors, underfloor heating, ceiling fans and a single garage.

The property is close to schools, transport and a commercial centre but is delightfully secluded. It includes: a home paddock of approximately half a hectare, two dams, gas, electricity, town and tank water and a roof sprinkler. The Voluntary Conservation Agreement attracts low rates.

The asking price is $995,000 For more information, please contact Brett Peterkin on 0414 389 519. To view photos please visit <mailbox:///E%7C/Documents%20and%20Settings/pdb.BIRDBRAIN/Application%20Data/Thunderbird/Profiles/pdb.default/Mail/>
