The promise of a country lifestyle often has great appeal, but all too often it equates to a big workload on large parcels of mountainous land. The attraction with this Bonville acreage is the fact that it's gently sloping (no hills!) extremely private and the 9688sqm (nearly 2 1/2 acres) is a manageable size.
Views from the master bedroom and family room over the parkland grounds are tranquil as well as practical, you'll be able to watch older kids go for a pony ride while you enjoy a Sunday morning coffee in bed.
The current owners have raised their children at the home, and Cleo the horse is currently in residence in the fully-fenced rear paddock, which has handy stables.
The massive 11.2m x 7.5m shed (with minimum height of 3.5m) is easily accessible from both the house and the paddock. With three bays, and built-in shelving, the shed is big enough to house cars, caravans, trailers, boats or simply a huge workshop for some lucky person.
Another benefit of this area is with the road works complete, you can choose from picking up milk at the local service station or heading to the supermarket about 10 minutes drive away. The popular village of Sawtell, with its beach, cafes and boutiques is about 12 minutes away.
Constructed by well-known local builder Brian Hopwood, the home has been designed for comfortable family living, with a good floor plan that includes ample space, particularly the bathrooms and the master walk-in-robe. Move in and enjoy as is, or add a few aesthetic modern touches to put your own stamp on the home.
Outside, an undercover portico visually breaks up the wide span of the home on the site and also provides an undercover driveway for guest parking, with the garage at the end of the house. The generous garage has a double remote roller door with extra height, along with a separate home office room. If you were happy to park undercover out the front, the garage could easily be used as a kids' playroom or games room with the addition of roll out timber-look flooring or carpet.
The home has three double bedrooms and a generously-sized three way bathroom for the kids, plus a suite-sized main bedroom with its own resort-style ensuite and walk-in-robe.
The home has two large living areas - a formal carpeted lounge with a northerly outlook to the rear paddock and entertaining area, plus a light-filled, tiled family living/dining area, complete with raked ceiling, adjacent to a modern two pac kitchen, with corner pantry, dishwasher, cook top, microwave hutch and wall oven.
Overlooking the rear yard and large sandstone paved entertaining area, it's the perfect spot for the master chef of the family to cook up a huge family feast, keep an eye on the kids in the yard, and still be part of the casual living and dining conversation.
