Rustic rural retreat
Imagine 7.79 hectares of lush rainforest, filled with eucalypts, sassafras, myrtle, man ferns and trout-filled dams. Meander along the creek’s edge, listening to the water lazily lapping over the moss-covered rocks; breathe in the clean, fresh air and brush your fingers along the lichen as they wrap round the trunks of the trees. Around the home area walk through the purpose-built maze, look up, and watch the birds as they flit through the sunlit-dappled canopy. This could be yours.
As you drive the gravel driveway, turn left into number 229 you you’ll be met with stunning views of Mt Roland, sitting proudly amongst brilliant skies and rolling paddocks. The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom house was built in 1992, and the warm timber ceilings, dados and wainscotting are complemented by the earth hues of the tiled floor and deep red feature walls. There is a long, wide, sunlit verandah that runs along the front and side of the house, and the view from the main living areas is captured through the large windows – many floor to ceiling – that open up to catch the gentle breeze on a warm Summer’s evening.
The tidy kitchen is equipped with a gas stove and pull-out rangehood and the property water comes from tanks. The timber cabinetry has been finished with a mixture of Mini Orb panelling and Leadlight glass, giving off a purposeful rustic ranch-style ambience. Leading out from the kitchen, there is a dining room space, opening up to a living area cleverly decorated with a long, built-in timber wood storage box that doubles as seating, and a wagon wheel light feature suspended from the ceiling. Further along, the second living space is kept warm and cosy on those long Winter nights by a pot-bellied wood stove that sits in a stone hearth.
Both bedrooms are large, with built-ins, and one has an ensuite with a flat, walk-in shower – useful for those that might need the extra access. The main bathroom is huge, with a double corner spa, separate double shower and interesting wall mural of a pirate galley! In fact, the bathroom is so large that there is plenty of space for the built-in laundry sink and counter, washing machine and even an ironing board. Outside, there is an undercover stone pergola area with views of the valley below; this could easily be built in as an enclosed sunroom.
