Description

You will be enthralled by the beauty that surrounds this well- presented property. It really does have a relaxing and rejuvenating feel about it and looks like it could be out of a fairy tale!

Tucked away at the top of a hill with bush-land providing shelter, this north facing home offers a flexible floor-plan and several outbuildings to suit a variety of family options.

The light-filled house with its sweeping veranda is surrounded by established gardens with level play areas for the children and enjoys many vantage points to admire the views from and shaded areas to stay cool in the summer.

Adjacent and attached to the home is an enclosed carport that provides covered access to the back door and an area set aside for a she shed or man’s cave.

Downstairs is the main living area with a separate lounge where a wood-heater keeps the home beautifully warm in the winter, a separate dining room and a country style kitchen with a recent inclusion of a Belling 900 mm gas stove. Directly off the lounge is the 3rd bedroom, currently being used as a library. Also included downstairs is a bathroom and separate laundry.

Upstairs is another 2 bedrooms with a dual access spacious bathroom, an attic room, north facing sun room and his and hers study nooks. Each bedroom takes in views of the peaceful gardens and bush-land.

Outside are terraced garden beds and a substantial veggie garden reminiscent of Mr McGregors garden out of Peter Rabbit. You will be blessed with some of the best tasting tomatoes, sweet corn, beetroot, carrots, zucchini and more.

A chicken run enables you to have a few chooks and hopefully collect fresh eggs.
