Not often do peoples wish lists get fulfilled, views of surrounding hillsides, natural bush, good pastures, abundant fresh running water, generous dam, all in a sheltered private location with a spacious, well appointed, solid two storey stone and timber split level residence. This property epitomises lifestyle opportunities with the gardens producing abundant fresh produce, and pastures for livestock.
To have both the views, the water running in a permanent creek near the home, to be able to enjoy the best of both worlds, and also have such a private sheltered location is a rare combination. Private, tucked away this 20.48 Hectare (50.58 Acre approximately) farmlet is instantly appealing as the hard work of establishment has already been done. A rare opportunity to buy a quality construction stone house, to the first level, then finished in solid feature timbers with a Tudor style influence above. This beautiful 3 to 4 bedroom home is positioned in a peaceful setting with the owners able to keep a watchful eye over this exceptionally picturesque property and the stock which occupy it.
The stone and hardwood homestead constructed in 1982 and has approximately 153 square metres under colour bond roof, excluding the veranda. The home features three or four bedrooms, bathroom, a very spacious and bright open plan kitchen, dining and lounge living area, with generous window space to allow natural light highlighting the natural timber features and plaster finishes.
The home features heating options from the Metro wood heater, and Fujitsu reverse cycle air condition system. A second wood heater is also installed in the office and recreation room, which could also be used as a spacious fourth bedroom (see above). The open plan kitchen and living area leads as split levels to the two sleeping areas (two up, one down) and allows the warmth to permeate the upstairs rooms by natural convection. The northerly facing lounge room opens onto the decking that features to the north side of the home where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the rural views out over the pastures and rural landscape below to the valley floor.
The kitchen boasts solid timber benches retaining natural features, providing ample workspace, and under bench storage further supplemented by the generous pantry. A gas cooktop and electric wall oven cater for the cooking options. The breakfast bar is an ideal casual dining area, or simply one of a number of locations to enjoy company with a cup of tea, coffee or glass of wine, when not using the formal dining area. Two of the three generous sized bedrooms have large built-in-robes, while the two upstairs bedrooms share a walk in storage area. The bathroom has separate shower and bath, and incudes toilet.
Outbuildings include a combination barn, machinery shed and workshop, garage complete with roller door, adjoining Studio (3metres X 8 metres) with a Clayton slow combustions stove, plus laundry that were used while the main home was under construction. They have the potential to be used as an alternative entertainment area, sleep out, or professional office to run a home based business from, or with the appropriate permits as Guest Accommodation and provide a supplementary income. A separate barn also allows for fodder and machinery storage. Rain water is collected for domestic use from both the house and garage/workshop into two ten thousand gallon tanks (2 X 45,000 litre) giving a total storage of 90,000 litres in the main tanks. The tanks and gardens can also be supplemented by water gravity fed from the two streams and springs on the property as both have permanent piping installed and smaller back up tank.
Come and live a great lifestyle with the capacity and potential to earn extra income. This highly desirable property with its rural views proves that it is not impossible to live the life you have previously dreamed of. The vendors know it is time to sell and know that their departure will be some other lucky peoples gain.
