Location, Location, Location perfectly describes this huge double-block (almost 2000sqm) on the corner of Thorburn and Cullen Streets in the heart of Nimbin Village. Set among tall and mature subtropical rainforest gardens with a lush carpet-like understory is an elevated 4-5 bedroom home. No structural termite problems here, this solid metal-framed dwelling would be enhanced a by timely makeover to once again revive its ambiance to be in keeping with the beautiful surrounds.

Offered for the first time in 30 years, the home sits just below street level for privacy, with easy/disable-friendly front of house access from Cullen Street via a gentle ramp on to a sun-dappled front porch - giving you easy walking access to all the cafes and unique franchise-free shopping of Nimbin's main street. From both this front porch and the long wide verandah at the back, you can soak up the lovely mountain views to the north and north-east, interrupted only by the tree-trunks of your towering subtropical oasis. There is a second entrance to the upper level via a set of back stairs complete with 1960's style wrought-iron railing.

The dwelling's plan covers two levels. The upper level is comprised of an open plan kitchen/dining/living space, the bathroom and four bedrooms. One bedroom has an entrance from the front porch, and can be used as an office space with separation from the home if needed. The lower level contains a living/bedroom space and a modern bathroom, and lends itself to a conversion to self-contained living quarters, since the home's main driveway is a long gravel entrance (from Thorburn Street) leading into a carport located at the end of the under-house living space. This effectively gives the property two entrances for dual living.

This property certainly needs some TLC, but many of the "hard yards" have recently been done. The land has undergone an extensive maintenance regime including the removal of some of the less-appropriate large tree species for a suburban garden. The home has had new guttering and a major plumbing re-fit. The current owners have added many creature comforts over the years, including solar hot water, roof heat-extractors, pot-belly stove, Air conditioning, a large underhouse water tank, a carport and a dishwasher.

Keen property 'flippers' take note. An exterior pressure clean, a fresh paint inside (perhaps even a sand/polish of the hardwood timber floors) and an 'on trend' colour scheme outside, and you will be value-adding immediately! Consider a rainforest-canopy style secondary dwelling or a pavilion-style extension amid the rainforest gardens and your resale price will significantly soar. Consider a small sub-division of the land (STCA), and your investment will skyrocket!

House flipping can be done on any property in a short period of time; even easier when improvements are mostly cosmetic like this property's. But it takes half a lifetime to grow the beautiful trees & gardens surrounding a large village property like this one. Your hidden mix of forest getaway and urban living is here and awaiting the savvy buyer.
