A prime piece of country, perfect for the horse enthusiast, or simply those who like the quiet life on a few acres of freedom on the outskirts of town. Echos of the neighbour’s draft horses pounding across the countryside, trailed by a hound or three, will conjure up thoughts of the English countryside half a world away – but it’s all right here on your doorstep

The two original front rooms of the home offer excellent proportion, high ceilings and polished timber floors. The lounge room complete with reverse cycle air-conditioner, slow combustion fire and ceiling fan adjoins the master bedroom complete with ceiling fan. The timber floors extend from these rooms through the hallway, to bedrooms two and three and leading through to the rear of the home, further adding to the ambience.

The modern kitchen presents ample bench space, a portable island bench, stand-alone 900mm oven, timeless timber bench tops and classic etched cupboard fronts. From the kitchen window, glimpses of grazing stock remind you that life here feels peaceful and fulfilling.

Tiling from the kitchen follows through to the renovated bathroom with shower over bath, two-drawer vanity and the toilet is separate. Further along a quaint mud room awaits.

The vine clad alfresco entertaining area reminds us to take time out, pull up a chair and enjoy the little things.

This rare offering presents two stables with dedicated yards plus an open-ended hay store or third stable plus optional yard should the need arise. Adjoining is a concrete floor tack room with roller door and separate wash down bay. There are also three tie-up yards toward the southern end of the property. Grazing incorporates two separate paddocks, one wrapping around the fully enclosed, sand arena measuring 60m x 20m.

Kilometres of dirt road riding tracks will impress the horse enthusiast – or take a stroll on foot and admire the surrounding large acreage properties.
