Conifer Park, a 84 hectare airstrip property in the NSW Southern Tablelands, is on the market after twenty one years of being home to AOPA Australia member Arnold Millett and his partner Win.

19kms south of the township of Nerriga, the property is 89km from Goulburn, 84km from Nowra and 100km from Canberra on sealed roads. Conifer Park is an entertainer’s dream, offering five bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, large open plan living/dining with a bar, potential games room and separate BBQ dining area. The house is equipped with a solar hot water system, a VAST satellite TV and internet connections. The garden has an automatic sprinkler system with water supplied from Jerricknorra Creek, which runs through the property with access to both sides for about two kilometres.

The property boasts a cross strip, with the main runway on well-drained grass.  The 700m main runway runs east-west to align with prevailing winds and a short emergency strip of about 300 metres runs SE-NW. Two large ponds each containing approx 12 megalitres remain full. An electric pump distributes creek water over most of the property. Conifer Park also has two dams for irrigation or stock, both of which are rich with yabbies. Riparian rights apply to the creek water for garden water.

Conifer Park is for sale through Reg O’Connell of Landmark Real Estate Braidwood 0402 833 344.
