Old world charm meets modern comfort in a country setting on over 5 acres

Discover the allure of countryside living with this lovingly renovated weatherboard, sited on a sprawling 2.1 hectares (5.1 acres) of elevated land, with a creek meandering along one boundary. Dating back to 1910, the pristinely presented home tastefully blends its historic charm with modern finesse, presenting a delightful haven for those yearning for a blend of rural tranquillity and contemporary comfort.

An inviting lounge adorned with a fireplace has French doors that open to a covered deck, where nature’s tableau unfolds before your eyes. Experience the joy of preparing hearty meals in the open-plan dining room and kitchen, warmed by a second fireplace. The kitchen, a modern-day charmer, is appointed with a wide stainless-steel oven and gas cooktop, and a feature timber island bench/breakfast bar under soft pendant lighting. Once again, French doors invite the outdoors in, leading to the deck.

Four bedrooms share a beautiful bathroom, where a clawfoot bath sits by a large picture window, offering the opportunity to immerse in warm baths while enjoying the sunset views. Additions include walk in shower, seperate toilet and laundry.

On the side, a separate studio with an additional room, currently utilised as a fifth bedroom, provides a versatile space for those who wish to pursue hobbies or perhaps require a peaceful work-from-home setup. It can also be envisioned as a yoga studio with its large outdoor deck offering a natural extension for relaxation and exercise.

Outside, the land invites endless possibilities. From setting up a barbecue or firepit for outdoor gatherings, to considering a hot tub, spa, or even a swimming pool, it’s ready to be tailored to your lifestyle. The historic charm is further enhanced by old shedding and stone ruins from yesteryear. The garden, simple in its beauty, offers panoramic vistas of rolling hills, making it an ideal setting for those who dream of having pond, alpaca, sheep, or goats. The existing kangaroos and vibrant birdlife add to the natural allure.

The location allows for a quiet lifestyle, with the added benefit of being close to necessary amenities.
