This well managed property at Sassafras, NSW is located on a small plateau on the edge of the east coast escarpment. Sassafras is an area of about 3,500 acres of freehold land surrounded by the Morton Wilderness Area. The peacefulness of the area makes it an ideal retreat for weekends; somewhere to just relax and enjoy the scenery or perhaps start that novel you were always going to write.
The chestnut plantation is now well established and requires minimal maintenance. Most of the hard work has been done! The harvest period usually starts mid March and is usually complete by Anzac day. Although a busy time, it is a great opportunity to invite friends to help out and enjoy the tranquillity of the farm and not to miss out on sitting around a campfire in the evenings roasting chestnuts.
Kelbray Park consists of 4 titles. The buildings are located well away from the road and surrounded by trees of all descriptions including the chestnut plantation. If the area feels too big for you to handle, you could always sell off the two smaller blocks (8ac. And 6.5ac) that front Trunk Rd 92 (as it is officially called). This road through Sassafras is expected to be sealed by December 2009.
