Homestead on the Hill
Constructed in 2012 from timber with a Colorbond roof and aluminium windows this is a classic Aussie style home evoking the traditional romance of an iconic homestead. Comfortably set on 18.05 (approx. 45 acres) of peaceful, pastured paradise all within easy commuting distance to the big smoke, it is a stunner! The partially elevated wraparound veranda frames the home and provides multiple viewing points to the endless rural views along the valley to the rolling hills beyond. Huge skies, expansive views, clean air and birdsong there is always a comfy spot to relax in whether you seek the sun or the shade.
Generously proportioned the open plan living/dining is bathed in natural light from multiple large windows that capture the views flowing down the valley. A freestanding wood heater warms the living area and luxury Tasmanian Oak flooring running throughout the home enhances the contemporary country feel befitting the home’s iconic exterior appeal.
The sumptuous, warm toned blackwood kitchen fitted with a mix of cupboards and drawers offers plenty of bench space plus a clever and convenient double height, breakfast bar. A modern combustion stove provides facilities for cooking and completes the welcoming appeal of this lovely family home.
Two king and one queen sized bedrooms, all featuring built-in robes, means the ability for everyone to have a big bed, with the master also enjoying an ensuite shower room. The large bright family bathroom, with dark grey tiled floor, incorporates the laundry in modern European style.
Presenting an ideal north facing aspect, usefully divided into 7 paddocks, fully fenced, and enjoying a small stand of native trees this agriculturally zoned property has many possible uses. A 15m x 8m barn, dam, a tree lined creek, a spring and 3 rainwater tanks, a septic tank, and electric or boiler hot water options round out the practicalities. Let’s not forget the low power bills with wood fire cooking, heating and optional hot water.
The landscaping is an inspiring blank canvas ready for you to develop to suit your needs and interests. Plenty of space for outdoor entertaining, an orchard, veggie beds, chickens, dressage arena or a tennis court!
