My Story

I am a 2,463 m2 Western Land Lease block, they call a “camp”. But, I am much more than that label implies. I have a very comfortable and maintained, 3 bed-room house which is fully fenced off from the rest of my large area. The natural bush surroundings foster a wide variety of birds and other native wildlife. Being well away from all my neighbours, I have provided the privacy and serenity that my owner has enjoyed for many years. I have all the hallmarks of comfortable living; my spacious modern kitchen has an upright gas stove, range-hood, double sink and turns into the split-system-air-conditioned dining and lounge areas. All my three generous bedrooms have built-ins and are nicely carpeted. The family bathroom has a shower over the full-sized bath-tub, toilet and attractive vanity. The front of my house has a large concreted under-cover patio and at the rear, a carport. I also have some extra sleep-out room; great for a teen or visitors “crash-pad”.

My owner has appreciated just how cheaply one can live here in Lightning Ridge. Being “off-grid”, electricity, water, rates and lease, combined, is very affordable. I am solar powered, with two back-up generators and I have a good tank-water supply. Really, my new owner can move in seamlessly with little to do except live and enjoy.

The world-famous (and lucrative) Opal Industry is fascinating to observe and to be a part of. Thousands of tourists come annually to this seemingly remote part of North Western NSW. “The Ridge”, as the locals call my town, has all the commercial and community services that are needed for a fulfilling retirement or family life-style. For example, I have: - free hot artesian bore baths, heated international diving pool & aquatic complex, active art, craft & jewellery colony, annual opal & gem festival, 3-day Easter festival, show & rodeo, hospital, medical & dental centres, flying doctor service, large supermarket, Bowling Club & Entertainment Centre, P-12 schools, TAFE, entertainment centre, bowls complex, Sunday markets and community garden.

Many visitors have come to “The Ridge” who fall in love with the easy life-style, see the many opportunities and never leave! Some find getting out of the “rat-race” of city-life a big step but they soon appreciate the rich history, colourful characters and diverse cultures which make my town a vibrant and friendly place; uniquely Australian and rural living at its best.

My Owner will consider all reasonable offers from $120,000 to $130,000. Call Glen today on 0439864600 to arrange for an inspection time.
