Delivering contemporary living at its best, this near-new home sits on a pretty 5.9-acre lot with a large shed, fenced horse paddocks, an arena and paddocks with water and shelters.

A classic homestead façade with a welcoming verandah and grey and white colour scheme opens to reveal high-ceiling interiors glowing with natural light and a timeless neutral palette of colours. Arrange at the front of the plan, on either side of a tiled entry hall, is a large home office and a plush media room. These spaces offer flexibility of use and could easily be styled as a guest room or fifth bedroom, a formal dining room or a quiet and sophisticated lounge room.

At the heart of the Ross Squires designed home is an expanse of open-plan living flowing to an elevated outdoor entertaining zone. To one side of this central living space is a modern kitchen with stone benchtops, a 900 mm oven and a large walk-in pantry/scullery. Large, east-facing windows and a sliding glass door blur the distinction between indoors and out, expanding the home’s living and entertaining space to an alfresco entertaining area and below-ground pool.

The principal suite, comprising a large bedroom, a walk-through robe and a modern ensuite, sits at the north end of the plan. Soft carpet underfoot, reverse cycle air conditioning and a ceiling fan fashion a luxurious parents’ retreat.

In the junior wing, three bedrooms, a walk-through laundry with a walk-in linen press, a separate WC and a family bathroom open off a central hallway. The bedrooms are good-sized and feature carpets, built-in robes and ceiling fans.

The current owners have established a solid foundation for an impressive country home. As time passes, this new homestead will appear timeless thanks to the thoughtful and forward-looking plantings of plane trees, ornamental pears and flowering plums. The infrastructure of country living is in place with a large shed with a covered apron and space to store a boat or caravan. Moving feed and vehicles between paddocks is easy thanks to a laneway, and with electric fences, shelters and walk-out yards, these reticulated enclosures are move-in ready.

A stylish near-new home, a beautiful rural setting, extensive landscaping, and outbuildings deliver picture-perfect country living.
