Property Details

241 Wattamolla Road WOODHILL, NSW 2535




Rarely does a 5-acre property become available on the desirable Woodhill Mountain, only a 12-minute drive from the centre of Berry.

In fact, only 3 owners have lived here since the land was granted to John Devitt in 1862 and used as a dairy farm.

This is the place where you can reduce your footprint and take back control of what you eat, how you live and how you breathe.

Nestled away in a landscape of greenery and gardens, this 2-bedroom eco-friendly building was designed by a German environmental architect. The home was built to honour the environment of the mountain and has a steel frame which is bolted into the sandstone. Local cedar and hard woods are used in the ceiling, walls and structure. Glass walls were imported from Germany to allow you to experience the mountain views as you bask inside in the solar and wood-heated home. The studio garage is an added bonus.

Stunning lichen covered stone walls cross the land which is a mixture of forest and pasture. All this natural beauty sits with the magnificence of Broughton Head as the backdrop.

The acreage is easily accessed from Wattamolla Road.

Now totally self-sustainable with off-grid solar electricity (but still with mains power) and gravity-fed water tanks, this unique property’s privacy and flexible floor plan has allowed the current owner to use the space as a yoga and meditation retreat.

The studio garage close to the main home is an ideal teenager study or could be used by guests as it has its own kitchenette and modern bathroom.

– Covered orchards contain a wide selection of established nut, citrus and tropical fruit trees and provide protected growing areas for vegetables. The current owner lives solely from the land on an organic plant-based diet.

– Housing for chickens, ducks and pigs.

– Dam sufficient for animal and food production.

– 3 fenced paddocks.

– Purpose-built seedling hot house, wood shed (with 1 year supply of wood), machinery shed (with never-used but serviced ride on mower).

Kiama, Gerringong, Gerroa, Berry, Shoalhaven Heads – these are all world-class destinations with world-class homes either in town, on the beach or on acreage. “Working in real estate sales in this region is a constant joy.”
