The Moruya property with beauty, space and quiet (and not a neighbour in sight)

A newly-listed Moruya property is just waiting for you to make your home among the (fruit) trees.

Clearwater Real Estate owner and principal Sam Sheather says 179 Francis Street. Moruya, would suit those looking for some seclusion.


“It’s the polar opposite of the single-level, brick home in the middle of town; and you’re far enough away from the hustle and bustle,” Sam says.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom property is set on 2.02 hectares and there’s not a neighbour in sight.

Located at the end of a cul-de-sac, the newly-renovated property was built in a colonial-Federation style with wide corridors, tall ceilings, a multi-purpose storage area upstairs and solar to keep energy costs down.


During the renovations, the current owners kept the original polished timber floors. The land boasts a dam, a secondary paddock, a shed for storage and a small vineyard.

“Most of the fencing is horse-proof so there’d only be a couple of bits and bobs to do if you wanted to have a small acreage with some animals - it’s very much move-in ready," Sam says.

And if you ever have a craving for fresh fruit, the orchard - with avocado, macadamia, lemon, olive, lime, grapefruit, orange and more - will fulfil it.


“It’s for those people who are looking for a property where they’ve got a bit of space to breathe," Sam says.

You won’t want to leave this charming home, but if you venture to either the front verandah or the back deck, you can catch the sunsets and sunrises.

“Actually, any time of day, you can capture the special features – you’re looking out over hills and mountains and not looking out at your neighbours.”


The house is minutes from Moruya’s CBD and a short drive to the local airport.

“We’ve got all the bush tracks and the beaches, so it’s perfect for anybody wanting to have a coastal lifestyle close to amenities,” Sam says.

The size of the home means prospective owners can use the house and land as they wish.


“You could run a business out of this property – subject to council approval – there’s certainly enough space to do that," Sam says.

“There’s great parking capability if you need to have parking for trucks or business vehicles.”

It’s the type of home you have to see up-close to get a real feel for, according to Sam.


“I think it’s a property that you need to inspect to appreciate," she says.

“We have a motivated seller who just wants someone to love it as much as it has been loved in the past.”

The property is for sale for $1.5 million.
