Wide bullnose verandahs wrap around the residence providing all weather areas that overlook the extensive terraced grounds with their eucalypts, producing orchard trees and inground pool. The current owners have lived here for the last 31 years relishing the picturesque location that sees very few cars travelling along this quiet, no-through road, daily.

Comfortable in all seasons, two wood burning fireplaces set against thermally retentive brick feature walls, warm both living areas during winters using timber from the property, while the ducted air conditioning connected to 3 phase power keeps the interiors cool and costs pleasingly down in the hotter months. A large 6.2kWh solar system with separately wired panels, maximises solar uptake and provides considerable reductions to living expenses.

The home’s layout offers a parents’ retreat away from the children’s rooms and family living areas, with the master bedroom with ensuite located adjacent to the formal lounge. Double French doors separate formal and casual, keeping temperatures constant and sound contained. Recently repainted internal walls make the interiors fresh and bright, and there is plenty of practical storage situated throughout the home.

Offering carport space for 3 vehicles (2 of which are tall and oversized), a large shed and workshop, water tanks for the home and gardens, secure fencing and an enclosure for dogs, this is a great property from which to operate a home business and is safe for pets and livestock. For potential hobby farmers or for those who just want to readjust their mindset and simplify their day-to-day life, this location offers a wonderful opportunity to experience, and build upon, living a more sustainable and self-sufficient lifestyle.
