Set on five acres, in a forested, fertile valley at the end of a private cul-de-sac, your beautiful home is the escape from suburbia that you've been seeking.
Backing onto a reserve with winter stream and waterfall, the property is adjacent to a bridle path, where you can join other locals riding their horses. Here you can be self-sustaining, growing your own organic vegetables and chickens, gathering eggs and fruit from the many trees on the property. There's an abundance of pure drinking water, with 200,000-litre rainwater capacity and a bore for garden reticulation the big workshop is an ideal men's shed.
All round verandahs make this solar-passive 4-bedroom, 2 bathroom home very livable throughout the whole year.
The large separated master bedroom, with built in wardrobe, split-cycle air-conditioning and an ensuite, looks out across the valley views, which will delight you when you awake every morning. The other 3 bedrooms are large enough for queen-size beds and have built-in wardrobes too.
The home has been cleverly designed to create numerous living zones that each have their own views. The large lounge features a wood-fired heater and views of the garden. The dining room and huge games room have access to a large, covered outdoor patio, which has a spa and views to the lush landscape. An outdoor BBQ area, with lovely gardens and a pond, is accessed through French doors from the sitting room. The pool is set in a private garden with its own pergola.
The piece-de-resistance is the farm-house style open-plan kitchen and dining area. The kitchen has handcrafted She-oak bench tops with gas cooking and electric fan forced oven. The large dining room also has a wood heater and patio access.
