Welcome to 'Yonderly', a property on almost ten wonderful acres, found east of Wauchope and only 22km from Port Macquarie.
This was the home of the late Densey Clyne who was a writer of 30 books, photographer, speaker, TV presenter and producer and worked with the legendary Sir David Attenborough.
Her lifetime was dedicated to exploring, understanding and sharing knowledge about the natural world.
"Yonderly" has a rich history. The outstanding features are the gardens and outdoor living areas with a diverse range of plantings; from a cottage garden to beautiful Bougainvilleas which were her favourite plants.
The home is a classic country style with wide verandahs and spacious rooms that look out to the gardens.
The grand master bedroom has an ensuite, sunroom, walk-in robe and is accessed through the library which could also be used as a parent's retreat.
Off the library is an office or extra, large bedroom and second bathroom with freestanding bath and shower.
The country kitchen overlooks the lily pond and yard and adjoins the casual dining room.
The sizeable main lounge room has a formal dining space and a separate sitting room adjacent which could be an extra bedroom. Currently, there are three bedrooms, two with their own ensuites, with the potential to have five bedrooms if needed.
Just off the verandah is a lily pond with pavilions that would make fantastic entertaining or summer shade.
This home would make a great family escape with delightful gardens, room for the kids to play and only a few minutes to shopping at Wauchope or an easy 20 minute trip to Port Macquarie and the beaches.
