This beautiful original 1900’s homestead, sitting privately on over 5 acres has brimming cottage gardens , fenced paddocks and holding yards; making this the ideal property for your escape to the country. There are many places to sit, relax and while away your day.
The property has been fastidiously maintained, with many modernisations and upgrades remaining respectful to the period of construction. The bathroom is relatively new and the kitchen boasts Baltic Pine cabinetry with plenty of storage and work space.
The home welcomes you through the charming leadlight entrance and along the wide hall, which is complemented by archways typical of the era, as are the twelve foot-high ceilings throughout. Off this hall you’ll find all three of the spacious bedrooms as well as an informal sitting area, that is filled with light and offers charming views over the garden. The expansive rear deck is accessed via this sitting room and provides an ideal space for entertaining while taking in the stunning surrounds.
The spacious lounge room offers French doors to the front verandah and large, rolled glass windows that allow the beauty of the outside to flood through, creating an ever-changing living space throughout the seasons.
Open fire-places are found in the bedrooms and the dining, each with their own unique surrounds and mantles. The main source of heating is provided by the combustion heater in the lounge room, which also creates an unbeatable ambiance in the evenings.
Outside you’ll find extensive infrastructure sympathetically located amongst the gardens, which provides studio and workshop spaces and opportunities for the hobbyist or amateur horticulturalist. There is an original barn with separate, lined rooms that is perfect to convert to suit your needs as well as an adorable laundry room and garden studio. There is a chicken coop not far from the house, a stone-based hot house and the longest poly tunnel I’ve ever seen!
The apple trees have never disappointed to provide a number of varieties each year. The gardens and paddocks are serviced by irrigation lines directly from one of the three dams. Water is available on demand from a reticulated system that covers all of the grounds.
