The block itself is in the rural NSW town of Yass – the dream itself started a long time ago but we went looking for something in this area and we found this in our price range (actually probably a thousand or two more than I wanted to spend). So we ended up purchasing the land in 2006.
The size is just over 1 acre approx 35 metres wide and over 100 metres deep with a slight slope to the south west corner.
Previously people had horses on it so they sprayed the Patersons Curse – Of course it just keeps on coming back. Here is what it looks like when we purchased it.
It is locate just behind the Yass Show Grounds (OK there is a block between) and it is close to the main town – the block is classified as rural but we are only approx 2kms from the main street.
A blank canvas if I had ever seen one. But a year later we would have our house here.
