PRISTINE PROPERTY IN COUNTRY LOCATION
Welcome to "The Bower"……..single level home built of Sandstock bricks with Colorbond roof, surrounded by verandahs on all sides, set on 24 acres. Approached via the bitumen sealed driveway, this property really is "The Jewel in the Crown" and we feel privileged to have been asked to list and market the property for the present owners.
To understand the quality and care that has been taken in the updating of "The Bower" an inspection is the only real way to appreciate all of its attributes. It is apparent as soon you enter the foyer that this has not just been a quick "lick" of paint, but a project that has been undertaken with a great deal of thought and has achieved a fantastic result to be very proud of. From the beautiful Brushbox Parquetry floors which have a welcoming feel and an ageless elegance for all to see and appreciate to high 10 foot ceilings, adding to the overall grandeur of the home, this is the type of dwelling that lends itself to entertaining or could easily accommodate a large family or perhaps a B&B (STCA), spacious rooms which flow effortlessly from kitchen to dining to living and beyond. The master bedroom is set apart from the other three bedrooms, having a generous walk in wardrobe and an en-suite, (recently updated) with the luxury of cosy under- floor heating. On the subject of heating…there is a slow combustion wood fire in the lounge set in a feature brick fireplace, and in the kitchen/family room, which has extensive views over the property, there is reverse cycle air conditioning and a gas bayonet point for a heater. The kitchen, being the heart of the home has a wonderful Smeg range cooker, dishwasher, double sink set in an impressive stone bench top. Plenty of cupboards and work surfaces to satisfy any standard of cook/chef. No shortage of water here with storage for 75,000 Litres in tanks, plus an easement to pump from a neighboring creek (if needed), as an added bonus there is Solar Hot Water.
The outside area encompasses a four bay garage/workshop plus garden shed. An abundance of different species of trees, including fruit trees and shrubs set in park like gardens which encourage prolific bird life, also your very own Rainforest country.
This property is only 20km to the beautiful mountain township of Dorrigo with School bus at the front gate.

To whom it may be of some interest. Ah! Murray Slender and Jane Wells. How can I ring the bells of their wondrous weaving of life changing events. Let me count the ways. Firstly, under the guise of a pair of mild mannered property purveyors, they are really wizards in disguise. With an inherent skill to peer deeply into the dark depths of an innocent vendor, extracting the deepest held desires to 'MAKE A KILLING', and bringing the calm rationalisation of reality to bear, dashing such desires and - here is the amazing part.- honestly imparting to said vendor, what is the true reality of achievable results. This Much and No More is the mantra of this mysterious pair, and, perhaps surprisingly, their mystical pronouncements bear more than a small modicum of truth. Secondly, were they brought up in a circus? Their ability to juggle numerous events at one time borders on more than spooky. In this instance, casting two castles into the dimension of lost souls, and, at the same time, fishing a third castle out, to lay it at our feet all sparkling and glittering and totally irresistible. BUT, there's more. Nothing but nothing is unachievable for this mighty duo. This mighty juggling could well have exploded in our face, but the Slender wand was waved over this conundrum of events, and a spell was weaved that created possibility out of impossibility. And LO! In the fullness of time all things came to pass. Oh, we of little faith have now been converted to the true meaning of:- "Trust me, I am a true purveyor of the great art of Agency, while all around me fall to darkness'. These wizards can be truly trusted. Thirdly, their care never ceases. Having settled all the drama associated with our castles, this mighty wizard pair did not cast us into the darkness- no, they cleverly contrived for us to inhabit a cave nearby to them, so they can still cast their caring charms over us. If I gaze from my castle turret, I can feel the warmth of their protective gaze still lingering over us. When we come to quit this grand abode, I am sure that the Wizard Slender will once again be called upon to wave his wand over us and ensure we have a safe future. Of course, with such care there is always a price to pay, and for us this means becoming involved in certain ackane ceremonies that the Wizard Slender is involved in at a festive time. But, we partake willingly, because to cross such a mighty wizardly pair would court serious bolts of lightening and other dark events to cross our new threshold. Hold your friends close, but hold mighty wizards closer, even when you do trust them. Here endeth the lesson. Bill & Carolyn Baggett

Perched at the pointy end of real estate agents in Dorrigo, Murray Slender is the only agent you should deal with. He is attentive, professional, ethical, amicable and very knowledgeable about amenities and services available on the Plateau. He has made the whole purchasing process much less stressful than it can be with his continued support and knowledge. When we first started searching for our forever home in Dorrigo, Murray was the only agent to sit down with us and discuss our criteria. Initially, we spent an hour and a half with Murray, chatting with a hot cup of coffee and a nice biscuit. We felt like we were visiting an old friend. This was a new experience for us because other agents in the area seemed uninterested in discussing our needs or even returning our phone calls. If you want to buy or sell your property in the Plateau Region, it would be a prudent move to call Murray. You can trust Murray, and his words and actions are beyond reproach. We’ll see you soon Murray for that shared port in front of the fire. Your new friends Lindy & John H

We have had many property dealings, yet rarely have we had the pleasure of working with an agent as genuine, honest, and thoroughly professional as Murray Slender. Purchasing our rural retreat was a retirement ambition and once we had found our Dorrigo dream, securing it, and all that was involved, would not have happened so easily without Murray’s constant navigation and communication. The purchase was not straight forward as it was a joint venture, both parties lived a few hours away and the vendors had significant other matters to deal with that prevented them being on site. Murray and his partner, Jane managed the complexities with patience, positivity, and total commitment to getting the best result for all involved. They both went above and beyond, organising trades and services, providing local contact and suggestions, as well as answering a myriad of questions, night and day! As a result, we now have new friends in Murray and Jane, we have begun our dream feeling welcomed and supported and we thank the team at Dorrigo 1 Property Sales for making this happen.
