Relax by the fire

Nestled on the side of a hill in the Macquarie River goldfields is this unique, secluded retreat with exclusive access to 70 hectares and river frontage. It has breathtaking views over the river valley. This is an ideal place for writers and artists or for families wanting to take time out to reconnect with nature or to experience living in the bush before they buy.

Located just 30 minutes from the regional cities of Bathurst and Orange, you can explore the local wineries and visit the early gold mining towns of Hill End and Sofala, or see where gold was first discovered at Ophir on your way into Orange.

Comfortably furnished, this home has both a gas and a wood fueled stove, dishwasher and front loader washing machine. There is an outdoor kitchen as well as a gas BBQ on the deck. A Telstra mobile connection and a satellite broadband service are available at the premises. Grab a book from the upstairs library and snuggle up by the open fire while you enjoy the view from the lounge room window on those cold, winter days.

This home is ideal for children and the ground floor is wheelchair accessible. There are toys and games to play, a trampoline and a recently constructed tree house. Our DVD collection provides a selection of movies for children and adults. 

Upstairs is a library, office with a futon sofa bed and two bedrooms with queen sized beds. Downstairs is the children's room with double decker beds and trundle with a queen sized bedroom next door. Another bedroom with a double sized bed is off the lounge area.

The bathroom has a shower and a large bath with the laundry off the kitchen. Please note water restrictions apply during the dry season for use of the bath as we use rainwater.

No recreational motor bikes or quad bikes are allowed on this property. Shooting and hunting is strictly prohibited because we love our wildlife and they too have a right to live in this very quiet, special place.

On the Stone Retreat was a wonderful, cosy house to spend a long weekend. We especially enjoyed listening to the record collection by the fire playing board games. On the Stone Retreat is well equipped with everything you need for a break in a great location. David and family5/5 by , Sydney
