One of the Northern Rivers' most-loved farm stay retreats - where guests come again and again - has hit the market. It is not being sold as a business but the infrastructure remains for those looking to start a retreat centre, or continue the B and B. Alternatively it would suit the extended family as there are 3 separate dwellings and plenty of room between for privacy.
More than just a farm-stay, this property is A WORK OF ART. The culmination of a lifelong journey and belief in sustainability, creativity and traditional European building techniques.
Tucked away in the foothills of the Nightcap Ranges, on 30 acres, bordered by the magnificent Mulgum Creek the land consists of pristine rainforest, a Eucalypt corridor, extensive organic fruit and vegetable gardens and rolling lawns.
Location aside, what makes Black Sheep Farm a unique experience is the range of accommodation buildings and the craftsmanship that has gone into constructing each one. The Learning Centre in particular is a remarkable feat of building ingenuity. Central to its story is a centuries-old European method of construction called Fachwerk and the "Journeymen" who assisted the McGaualeys with the build. The 108sqm bespoke hexagonal building was built by hand with no nails in the frame. This unique structure has housed many learning retreats ranging from yoga and healing to arts and crafts. It would also lend itself beautifully to weddings and special functions. 2 showers and 2 toilets service this space and a paved courtyard with pizza oven is ideal for large events .
