Character Laden Home Set On 25 Tranquil Acres

Approximately 10.1ha (Approx. 25 acres). Magical setting of 5 dams located in the most beautiful of natural environments with pretty bird filled gardens. Quality filled and character laden stone home, large studio, shedding and more.

LAND: Approximately 10.1ha (Approx. 25 acres). Surround yourself in the essence of tranquillity. Positioned in a semi secluded location, the property really is an escape from suburbia, provides many lifestyle possibilities and is adored by the abundant birdlife and wildlife that reside here. From the roadside, little can be seen, which gives an initial insight into the privacy. Traversing down the driveway, passing the woodlot, the extended views to the west become evident. The first of 5 dams supplies water to the property and gardens via the automated irrigation system. The series of dams are inviting to the water birds and are home to yabbies, along with the re introduced native blackfish. The bottom 2 dams are a very good size and, being in the natural bush setting, it’s the perfect place for a relaxing paddle in a canoe. The property is divided into 6 well fenced paddocks ensuring that the keeping of animals, such as sheep and alpacas, is easily managed.

The home surrounds are delightful, beginning with the extensive paving and substantial stone work that is mirrored by the home itself. The large, irrigated front lawn flows down a gentle slope and is bordered by the backdrop of majestic gums and other native plants. The timber foot bridge, that spans the rock lined waterway, is a nice touch when walking from the parking area to the home. Of course, no hills property would be complete without fruit trees and vegetable gardens and here there is a very good selection. The early morning bird songs, blue fairy wrens tapping on the windows, Euros and kangaroos are all part of the environment which is perfectly complemented by the beautiful stone home. Purposefully created sitting areas are dotted through the acreage, which also has the added benefit of a 4 megalitre water licence.

RESIDENCE: This enchanting, large stone home is uniquely beautiful with a style that is befitting of the surrounds in which it is built. Equally impressive inside and out, the home has features and tones that are calming to the soul whilst being elegantly practical with a classic character.

The heart of any fine home is its kitchen and, although the large timber kitchen with its multitude of cupboards, built-in appliances, pantry, island bench and more is charming, it is the huge living space that is the centrepiece of this home. Whether it be the enormous stone fireplace or combustion heater warming this large area, the 10’ timber ceilings, the beautiful views of the property through large colonial pane windows or the French doors that open to the gardens, this split level section of the home is completely endearing.

The master suite is a true master suite with access gained from the tiled entrance foyer with leadlight features, or its own set of French doors. His and her walk-in robes provide a generous supply of cupboard space. There is also an area suitable as a retreat, library or sitting room. The ensuite is a full size bathroom equipped with double vanity that has a Caesar stone top, floor to ceiling tiles and corner spa bath. The home has an adaptive design which can facilitate 4 bedrooms or, alternatively, a superb purposeful office with great features, another living area with a slow combustion heater and a bedroom that can utilise the main bathroom, again with floor to ceiling tiling and spa, as another ensuite. The laundry facilities are contained within the large utility room with all its built-in cupboards. The home’s comfort and efficiency is provided by a ducted, reverse cycle air conditioning system, the open fire, two wood burners and the 24 panel 4.6kw solar unit. The beautiful wide verandahs that skirt the western and southern sides of the home frame it superbly and provide a magical spot from which to admire and enjoy the setting.

IMPROVEMENTS: The first prominent structure is the very sizable light filled artist studio which, with its split system airconditioner and vaulted ceiling, would make a great recreation room. Its solid rendered construction matches the home and has two additional externally accessed rooms. Also, comprised of 3 sections, is the shedding complex which has power, concrete floor is serviced by running water and has other facilities including an attached shelter. There is even paving through the hot house which also has a water point. The water is plentiful whether it be via a series of interconnected tanks including the underground catchment tank with timber decking over it or the many dams.
