The Natural Bridge property at 103 Bakers Rd comes with a waterfall.

IMAGINE taking a leisurely stroll through a rainforest to get to a waterfall without leaving your backyard.

It’s not as far-fetched as it seems with one Natural Bridge property offering just that.

The 19.25ha block on Bakers Rd has a four-bedroom house, affectionately known as Quamby Falls Lodge, a caretaker’s cottage, dam with boat house and a 116m waterfall with rock pool hidden among bushland at the back.

Is it known as Quamby Falls Estate.

The 116m waterfall feeds a creek that runs through the property.

There are plenty of spots to admire the panoramic views.

It has hit the market for the first time in 12 years with a $2.888 million asking price.

Owners Michelle and Mark Stephan bought it as a “rundown” property and have spent years restoring it to its former glory, both inside and out.

“It’s been wonderful, we’ve been very blessed to be able to experience it,” Mrs Stephan said.

“Every single day you see something different and new, it’s just gorgeous.”

She said bowerbirds frequented the property while lamington blue crayfish and glow worms could be spotted along the creek.

With national parks surrounding the property, Mrs Stephan said there was much more to it than the house.

The dam with boat house is a highlight of the property.

The interiors have been renovated over the years.

“It’s what’s around the house that’s the big drawcard,” she said.

Marketing agent Stewart Baericke, of Ray White Rural Murwillumbah, said properties like this rarely hit the market.

“Whoever goes through and sees it will fall in love with it.”

The property was previously an eco retreat so it also has a helipad for scenic flights.
