Property Information
Olde world charm with a modern twist. Step back into a bygone era as you enter this home. High ceilings, gleaming wooden floors and authentic period touches add charm to this tastefully renovated Victorian home. The expansive living areas and character filled kitchen open onto a covered entertainment area with a splash pool. Designed to accommodate all seasons, you'll find the entertainment area and pool ideal for whiling away those summer days, while you'll enjoy intimate winter evenings sitting in the lounge around the cosy fireplace. The wrap around verandah allows you to sit outside and enjoy the morning sun, while the entertainment area, with it's west facing aspect is drenched in the last of the afternoon sun. Regardless of weather, you'll find an outdoor area, sheltered from the elements and prevailing winds. Three tastefully decorated bedrooms each with their own bathroom provide accommodation for family. The generously proportioned master bedroom has a kitchenette where you can make tea and coffee, or even a midnight snack, and opens onto the front verandah with a view of the attractive garden. Adjoining the main house, with it's own entrance, you'll find a private, self contained flatlet, comprised of a lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. This flatlet is ideal as a guest suite, or perhaps for a family member needing to live with you, but requiring their own private space. The expansive back garden boasts a delightful garden cottage, comprised of a lounge and kitchenette, a bedroom and a bathroom. Perfect if you would like to generate extra income, or as additional accommodation if you have a large family or extra guests. A cute tree house is nestled amongst the trees, and awaits either your children or grandchildren. If you like the idea of growing your own produce, you'll love the tunnel with automated irrigation, currently bursting with home grown vegetables and herbs. There are also plenty of established fruit trees dotted around the garden. This home has excellent security and is fully enclosed, with a gated access, for peace of mind and ensures that nobody can gain access unannounced. The tandem garage provides secure parking for family vehicles. If you're a garden enthusiast, you will think you're in heaven, with more than enough area to garden and create exciting corners. An added plus is the plentiful supply of rainwater, capable of running the entire home on fresh water. Definitely worth viewing if you love entertaining, while seeking character, charm and an old world feel. This home offers something truly unique, and needs to be viewed in order to appreciate all it has to offer.
