"Liarga" is a large woodland retreat in the central goldfields locality of Walmer, bordering on the historic township of Maldon. Ideal for tree changers, nature enthusiasts and those like-minded in a commitment to conservation and habitat renewal.
A beautiful bush property, covenanted by the current owners through Trust for Nature to protect the natural heritage values. As you drive into this 52 hectare conservation retreat you enter a haven for native plants including ground orchids, plus old stringy-bark, grey box and yellow box trees.
Native wildlife such as kangaroos, wallabies, echidna, sugar gliders, and native bird species including birds of prey, waterbirds, and parrots abound. Uniquely home to the tuan or brush-tailed phascogale, a threatened arboreal marsupial native local to the area.
The land includes some significant very old trees within a large expanse of 80 year old regrowth forest plus 25 hectares direct seeded 15 years ago by the current owners. Three agro-forestry plots (trees for harvesting timber) complete the picture.
Featuring a private, centrally located four bedroom home with two bathrooms, spacious open plan kitchen living and dining area with cathedral ceilings, wood heating and garden vistas. Air conditioning, led lighting, external cellar for preserves and wine, 135,000 litres stored water, mains power plus 2kw integrated solar system, solar hot water. Two large steel sheds (6 x 12 m) currently set up as pottery studio. Established food gardens and three dams.
