A brick path meanders under an arbour and through the cottage garden to the front door of this 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2-storey family home. A wide, welcoming entrance hall opens to a central living room, French doors lead through to a family / theatre room fitted with a projector and big screen. Exposed beams and a slow combustion fire amplify the comforting embrace of this room.

The kitchen is all country charm. Wooden cabinets and dado, a walk-in pantry, wall oven, dishwasher and 4-burner gas hob are arranged to make for easy meal prep. The wrap-around bench includes a practical, family-friendly breakfast bar. An inviting dining nook and polished timber floors complete the delightful kitchen.

A large family bathroom and walk through laundry on the ground floor provide plenty of space for cleaning up after a day of work and adventures. The laundry leads to a private sitting area tucked at the side of the home.

Upstairs the feeling is that of being in a treehouse. A central loungeroom with R/C A/C and a large window to the north, is a wonderfully bright living room, away from the activity downstairs, this pitched-ceiling space is perfect for crafting or use as a fantastic kid’s activity area.

Radiating from the upstairs living area are three bedrooms. The master suite features a walk-through wardrobe leading to an ensuite with shower and vanity. Each junior bedrooms are double-size and have fitted wardrobes, ceiling fans and dormer windows offering tree-top views. A fourth double-size bedroom is set adjacent the bathroom on the ground floor.

Hidden from the road and not a neighbour in sight, a circular drive way leads to a pretty central rose garden and massive workshed with 3-phase power. The property has the feeling of secluded rural location yet sits in a friendly neighbourhood and within easy reach of schools, reserves and the amenities of town.

Laid out before you, on this private, 5-acre property are the ingredients for a big-hearted, family-centred life, days filled with enjoying the pool, tending the garden, picking fruit and collecting eggs await. And when it’s time to relax, you can do so in style with a massive, multi-zoned, alfresco entertaining area: with both covered and uncovered areas and a full outdoor kitchen – pizza oven, fridges, gas hob and oven – chances are this spectacular space will become your go-to spot.

If you dream of perusing a greener lifestyle, with room for everyone and all of their activities in a place that feels like home the second you enter the gate, this expansive property will see that dream realised. Chickens, an orchard, veggie gardens and yabbies in the pond – complete the setting and provide the basis for a life filled with friends, family and fun for years to come.
