Open the front door and step into the embrace of the central living area with its honey toned timber-lined raked ceiling, the organic colours and texture of recycled bricks and dual aspect glazing allowing swathes of natural light to flood in.
The lounge, kitchen and meals area offer a welcoming living zone, ready for all seasons, thanks to a super-efficient Norwegian Cast Iron Jotul fire and a reverse cycle air-conditioner. The kitchen features a freestanding oven set into a brick hearth, a single-drawer dishwasher and under-bench cabinetry. A door opens from the kitchen to a private south-facing patio, sheltered by a pitched roof.
Bedrooms sit at either end of the floorplan – all are a good size with carpets and fans. The main bedroom features built-in robes, a reverse cycle air conditioner and semi-ensuite access to the shared bathroom and enjoys views out to the pretty front garden.
Two rainwater tanks and mains water service the home and garden with a 6-station auto reticulation array. A garden shed offers storage for tools and gardening supplies, and a powered workshop with a concrete floor and lean-to provides a great workspace and storage area. A single carport with an automatic roller door sits under the main roof of the property.
A perfect measure of rustic charm, a garden that blends cottage plants, natives and various fruit trees and a floorplan with open-plan living at its heart combine in a home that balances comfort and convenience. This is an irresistible Glen Forrest property with a powered shed, paved driveway, reticulated gardens, and an easy walk to Glen Forrest Primary School.
