As you step into the deep shade of the verandah wrapping the front of this home, an iconic Australian vista is revealed; the land gently unfolds to a stand of magnificent gums and onto a tree-lined horizon. This relocated cottage could not look more at home in its new location, with its west-facing outlook offering nightly displays of the setting sun.

The front door opens to a good-sized formal lounge with a striking deco-style fireplace taking centre stage. A trio of jarrah-framed windows offer glimpses of the surrounding landscape, while air conditioning and a slow-combustion fire fitted to the fireplace create a room that is inviting year-round.

The first of two large bedrooms is set to one side of the lounge. High ceilings, jarrah floors, original window frames and reverse cycle air conditioning balance authentic charm with modern comfort.

A renovated kitchen with stone-look benchtops, cream overhead and under bench cabinets and an electric oven and gas hob offers ample space for a farmhouse table and views across the kitchen garden and home paddock to a two-stall stable with walk-out yards – a cheering reminder of the wonderfully rural setting.

Two bedrooms open off the kitchen; the largest is set at the front of the floorplan with high ceilings, jarrah floors, reverse cycle air conditioning and the potential for direct access to the front verandah, providing the framework of an impressive main bedroom. A sleepout-style junior room sits at the rear of the plan. The layout is complete with a family bathroom featuring a tub with an overhead shower, a separate WC and a good-sized walk-through laundry.

Realising your dream of country living requires more than just a residence – and this property has you covered with a powered shed, two stables with walk-out yards, a paddock and a round yard. The 2.65-acre lot is connected to scheme water and offers ample scope to grow vegetables and keep chickens. The fenced home paddock is waiting to be planted with old-fashioned flowering annuals.

Finding a country property with such an ideal balance of charm, convenience and amenity is rare. Neighbouring properties of a similar size ensure a rural atmosphere, infrastructure for animals and machines, makes the transition to country life more manageable and a home with original features and a renovated kitchen delivers a connection to the past with an eye to the future.
