A spellbinding balance of good taste and threaded sublime flair can be an elusive commodity to find.
If you've been looking for a fascinating rural property with enough talent to take up editorial space in a glossy country lifestyle magazine, you've found it. It's all about colourful lifestyle fabric and thematic natural textures.
Yes, this local gem would be quite at home in the French Departments of Lot and Dordogne.
The home comes with a combined living area of approximately 239m2 and 3 double-sized bedrooms; 2 of which have independent ensuites. The fully segregated master bedroom suite has high raked ceilings and modern country-style ensuite and sliding door access to its own garden deck.
French Provincial style kitchens are always in vogue, and this one with its thick timber benchtops forms an integral part of the home's fabulous open plan central living, dining and family room area with its high raked ceilings and rustic slate floors. This reflective space flows out to a fully enclosed 22m2 garden-sun room with multiple door access to the rear alfresco deck.
Another salient feature of the home is its 45m2 sunken formal lounge room with its solid narrow-milled hardwood timber floors, central open fireplace and high raked ceilings. This suavely European room has 3 timber sliding door sets that lead out to the rear alfresco deck that has mature Birch trees sprouting through its decking like yacht masts on a clipper. These doors can be opened-up in warmer weather to ebb breezes through as you ever so politely entertain your guests over afternoon tea.
The home is visually spliced to its encircling gardens to deliver one very seamless fit between the outside and inside aspects of the property.
A set of alfresco deck steps leads down into the rear gardens and their delightful crowded-house of trees that form a dappled forested canopy over your head.
On the other side of the le petit forest is a very handy 56m2 Colorbond studio shed that is internally lined and has connected power. This shed blends with its setting perfectly and is an ideal place to house your home gym, large work from home office or hobbyist workshop.
Towards the rear of the block there's a very useful 40m2 farm shed that was originally the property's pony stables. Whilst the stable boxes have been partially de-commissioned to make way for utility, they could be brought back into stable use by adding box fronts/doors. The shed is stoutly constructed and has a front concrete saddling apron with nearby water connections for a wash bay.
Essentially, this beautiful property with dimensions of character and charm.
The home's floorplan with its 2 distinct master suites certainly adds great flexibilities to the home. Whilst it suits a couple that love to entertain weekend stayover guests, the 3 living areas provide ample space for a smaller to medium sized family group.
Be quick, there's nothing quite like this gem!
