With the focus being on family living, downstairs offers a formal lounge and dining with open fire, separate sitting room with heat pump, cosy eat in kitchen, full 3rd bathroom and plus a handy laundry/butlers pantry, whilst a light and airy conservatory is perfect for the hobby enthusiast.
Upstairs, accommodation is well catered for with 4 bedrooms, family bathroom and a small ensuite. The charm of this home is enhanced by leadlight windows, and the beautiful accent timber used throughout the home that was milled from macrocarpa pine trees on the property. A double garage with internal access also houses a 4th toilet plus an upstairs rumpus compete with billiard table, that could easily be converted to a self-contained area. There really is room for the whole family.
Outside, the 5 acres offers good fencing including a large paddock currently running sheep, ample tank water supply and a single garage for additional storage. The history of this land is evident by the well and apple tree – a staple inclusion for the Military pensioners in the 1830s who were each granted a 5-acre (20,000 m2) block of land complete with a well and fruit tree. The adjoining 5 acres is also available for sale – but first option will be given to the house purchaser. This property is one-of-a-kind and one you’ll fall in love immediately.
