The grand stately living area with its high ceilings and polished jarrah floorboards is a functional family space with two zoned lounge areas and formal dining. A slow combustion wood heater (with fan and water coil for economic hot water) and reverse cycle ceiling fan add to the ambience. The living/formal dining is conveniently located opposite the kitchen/meals and has two French doors that open onto the large front verandah.
An outstanding kitchen with the added bonus of a scullery for the chef of the home. Large subway tiles, brick arch cooking nook, 900 mm upright Bellling stove with 5 gas burner hotplate, 3 ovens and electric grill add country charm. A 900 mm rangehood, dishwasher, heaps of bench space, cupboards and drawers, and abundant storage in the scullery complete this functional space. The meals room is open plan to the kitchen and gives that old fashioned family feel of everyone being together - the meeting place to sit, have a cuppa and chat.

The master bedroom is generous in size and has an original feature fire place, large built-in cupboards, comfy carpet and large sash windows which make the room light and airy.
