The old world charm of this classic character residence truly harnesses the natural beauty of its magnificent 48 acre setting. Originally built in 1938 and extensively renovated and extended in 2008 the present owners have created a seamless addition and turned a little cottage into a charming home with great family dynamics. Surrounded by a soul restoring garden, fully fenced to keep pets and little ones secure and full of the most delightful flowers, shrubs, trees, meandering pathways and nooks and crannies, you’ll be fascinated by the vibrant bird life and the sounds of nature busily going about their daily routines.
The high ceilings (3.1m), 5″ Jarrah floorboards and beautiful timber doors and window frames create a rich and stylish warmth throughout the home. Two double French doors spill out from the family room to the entertainment area as well as from the dining room which in turn leads to the below ground glass fenced swimming pool and looks out over the multi-faceted views of this glorious acreage. The original lounge features a slow combustion fire and beautiful leadlight windows and the games room is tidily tucked away downstairs and perfect for a rowdy bunch of teenagers.
The four bedrooms are all large with one presently being used as an office and one as a sewing room and the Master features a semi-ensuite bathroom with spa bath, separate shower, vanity and separate WC. The laundry is HUGE and features an enormous built in cupboard, pull out ironing board and clothes hampers and the second bathroom features a shower, vanity and WC. There is also a downstairs cellar, ideal to store home produce and your favourite wines.
The 48 acres of land comprise of 8 paddocks full of rich loamy soil, scattered Mari, Eucalypt, Blackbutt and Jarrah trees and an Olive grove with approximately 1,000 trees. There is a 13,000 KL dam and the present owner has rights to pump from Cookes Brook which meanders through the land.
