A unique art deco style 3 bedroom home with separate dining and separate lounge. One bathroom. In very good order and located in attractive grounds with hedges, mature trees and a grass tennis court. The water supply for the home is from the roof and is filtered.

Support buildings include:-
- a functional 3 stand woolshed with accompanying sheep yards
