A charming character filled home with an exceptional modern extension.
Originally built in 1900 the stone symmetrical cottage has beautiful original features such as polished timber floors, open fire places with mantels, high ceilings and timber sash windows.
The clever integration of a modern extension is disguised with ColorBond to the exterior walls. The original lace work and bull nose verandahs at the front has been mirrored to the new part of the home providing a seamless transition from old to new.
Stepping from the front verandah, the entrance hall leads to the three spacious bedrooms, all with original features, ceiling fans and TV points.
A formal lounge in the centre of the home, has a slow combustion heater built into the fire place. This is a cozy room for any winter night.
The original sunroom to the side of the home has plenty of natural light and floor to ceiling windows. This room could be converted to an additional bedroom or living area.
A modern and well planned extension is to the rear of the home and allows the home to open and accommodate any busy family living or fantastic all year entertaining.
A quality ‘Space Craft’ timber kitchen provides ample storage in both under bench and overhead cupboards, stainless steel appliances and a spacious bench/breakfast bar. A tiled open plan living and dining enjoys timber sash windows and timber French doors to the rear entrance and outdoor entertaining room.
Enjoy entertaining all year with friends and family especially in the indoor/outdoor entertaining room. This is a tiled room with full kitchen together with bakers oven for warmth and a Friday night pizza. There are four ceiling fans in this area, gas point for a bbq or additional heating. Opening to the solar heated, salt chlorinated pool this is amazing living. A side deck, rear gazebo, high fencing nd garden beds provide total privacy to this area.
The property has four toilets, 1 located just off the pool area. The laundry is also handy to the pool and again enjoys plenty of storage. The main bathroom was part of the recent addition and has a separate toilet and vanity section.
A private outdoor access leads to the entertaining area allowing people to arrive without going through your home. There is also easy access to the double garage from the home and entertaining room.
The home has 3 x r/c a/c ensuring total comfort throughout.
Well positioned on the 4048m2 allotment (approx) the entire grounds are landscaped. Ornamental trees together with agapanthus line the driveway, while original red bricks edge the vast lawn and garden beds which are filled with shrubs. 13,000 gallons of rain water together with bio-cycle recycled water service the home and grounds with a fully automated irrigation system.
Hidden away at the rear of the property a little chook house also provides room for a veggie garden.
A huge 60 × 30 ColorBond shed provides more than enough storage and work space. Fully concreted with water, power and lights. A portion of the shed has been professionally divided creating a fully self- contained living area. Independent of the home the shed has electric HWS, kitchenette, air conditioning and bathroom. The area adds to the already extensive living and entertaining area. Idea for a home office, teenage retreat or games room.
Amazing living is just a move away. Surround yourself with quality and good taste while enjoying the space of just over 1 acre of living.
