An elevated position and reticulated lawn and gardens give this home instant appeal, a brick path through the jasmine-covered arbour leading to the bullnose verandah adds to the charm.
Arranged across the front of the home is an expansive, open plan family/meals and lounge. A wall of south-facing windows looks out across the verandah and gardens while the functions of this vast space are described by carpet in the lounge and dining areas and large tiles and a brick fireplace with slow combustion fire in the family room.
Steps lead up to a spacious kitchen with terrific storage and ample bench space. Open to the living space below, the kitchen features a 900 mm freestanding oven, 2-drawer dishwasher and large walk-in pantry. An adjoining laundry includes a walk-in linen press; however, with ample bench and storage, this space could be utilised as a larder for storage of appliances and bulk goods. The laundry opens to the covered outdoor entertaining area and adjoins a bathroom with shower, vanity and W.C. a layout that creates a ready-made wet/mudroom.
The bedroom wing containing 4 bedrooms is arranged along the home’s northern face. With 3 good sized junior rooms – all with ceiling fans – a family bathroom and a double-door, walk-in hall closet. The main bedroom suite features a walk-through wardrobe, a ceiling fan and an ensuite with a vestibule with a separate W.C. and shower. A large corner window brings delightful garden views into the spacious bedroom.
A high, pitched roof shelters the paved outdoor entertaining area and afforded restful views of the natural landscape and gardens. Steps lead up from the rear of the home to the 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage.
A separate gate and driveway leading directly to the carport of the cottage ensure a degree of privacy and independence. This 2-storey residence is ideal for adult children or could be used as a rental property. On the first floor, a sunroom with screened windows on 3 sides offers a fabulous living space with an indoor-outdoor atmosphere. The kitchen is large enough for a small table and features an electric oven and hob and good bench space and storage. A cosy carpeted lounge room offers an ideal spot for screen time or reading and could be utilised as a second bedroom.
A laundry with access to the carport and a bathroom with vanity, shower and W.C. complete the first-floor layout. Stairs lead from a central vestibule to the second storey where the queen size bedroom with a timber-lined ceiling and walk-in robe adjoins a tree-top sunroom.
This 5.5-acre property boasts a large shed with space for vehicle storage and a workspace. A second large workshop, with 3-phase power, adjoins the cottage. The automatically reticulated gardens are fed by a bore as are the numerous fruit trees and vegetable gardens. A chicken run surrounding the fruit trees creates a self-supporting system with the added benefit of fresh eggs. Ample space for everyone to play, explore, garden and tinker, a level open area suitable to fencing for those with a horse and the incredible bonus of direct, private access to Susannah Lake put in place a storybook setting. This is what Hills living is all about!
