In­spir­ing Ru­ral Es­tate on the Fringe of Town

The Gazette Real Estate - - Front Page -

With its grand pro­por­tions, for­mal gar­dens and su­perb lo­ca­tion, this coun­try es­tate in Bun­yip is in a class of its own.

Set up for the equine en­thu­si­ast, the 20 acre hold­ing lends it­self equally to a va­ri­ety of ru­ral pur­suits and in­ter­ests.

Lo­cated on the town fringe, the prop­erty is within walk­ing dis­tance of the train sta­tion, schools, shop­ping precinct and only a short drive to the free­way,

The im­pos­ing homestead com­prises five bed­rooms, three bath­rooms, stylish well ap­pointed kitchen, in­ter­con­nect­ing, mul­ti­ple liv­ing ar­eas in­clud­ing a cen­tral, semi-in­door swim­ming pool and a dou­ble garage with in­ter­nal en­try.

Nat­u­ral tim­bers, ex­posed brick and slate floor­ing add to the coun­try aes­thet­ics and cre­ate a warm and re­laxed am­bi­ence to the in­te­rior.

A unique de­sign fea­ture is the in­door atrium in the en­trance foyer, an ideal show­case to dis­play your cre­ative flair.

Ad­di­tional im­prove­ments in­clude an eight bay Color­bond shed with roller doors, power and a con­crete floor, large hay shed and a high clear­ance ma­chin­ery shed with an ad­join­ing self con­tained unit com­pris­ing an open plan liv­ing area/bed­room, kitch­enette and bath­room fa­cil­i­ties.

The acreage is hot wired into eleven horse pad­docks with shel­ters, ac­cessed by a cen­tral laneway and three larger pad­docks, one seven acres and two of three acres. Two large tanks plus mains con­nec­tion pro­vide an am­ple water sup­ply.

Im­pres­sive en­try gates open to a long tree - lined, sealed drive­way which sweeps down to a turn­ing cir­cle at the front of the homestead and then con­tin­ues on to the ex­ten­sive shed com­plex at the rear.

A large foun­tain is the cen­tre­piece of the turn­ing cir­cle, bor­dered by clipped box hedg­ing, spec­i­men trees, brick path­ways and man­i­cured lawn.

Dou­ble lead­light en­trance doors re­veal a slate floor foyer with the glass atrium.

To the right, steps lead down to the for­mal liv­ing room with a high, dec­o­ra­tive plas­ter ceil­ing, tim­ber dado and the ad­join­ing din­ing room.

Nearby is the in­ter­nal ac­cess to the garage, study or bed­room five and the main bed­room wing with a gen­er­ous walk-in robe and a lav­ish en­suite fea­tur­ing twin basins, over­sized shower, cor­ner spa and a toi­let.

Turn­ing left from the foyer are the kitchen/meals area and the bil­liard or fam­ily room com­plete with a tim­ber lined Cathe­dral ceil­ing, in­built bar, beau­ti­ful crafted cab­i­netry and an im­pos­ing brick fire­place.

Black stone counter tops, white cab­i­netry and qual­ity ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a ce­ramic cook­top, dual ovens and a Miele dish­washer are fea­tures of the kitchen.

From the kitchen a short pas­sage­way con­nects two of the sec­ondary bed­rooms, bath­room and a sep­a­rate toi­let.

The re­main­ing bed­room or guest ac­com­mo­da­tion, third bath­room and the laun­dry are lo­cated off the bil­liard room. Mul­ti­ple sets of slid­ing doors from the liv­ing ar­eas, main bed­room and guest bed­room wing al­low ac­cess to the cen­tral, heated swim­ming pool and al­fresco area.

A great de­sign fea­ture here is the lou­vered roof which can be opened dur­ing the sum­mer or closed off for the cooler sea­sons.

Ducted air con­di­tion­ing and vac­u­um­ing, an alarm sys­tem, ceil­ing fans and ex­ten­sive built-in stor­age through­out are ad­di­tional in­clu­sions of this im­pres­sive home.

Num­ber 41 Berry Lane, Bun­yip is a unique op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire an elite hold­ing of­fer­ing an en­vi­able life­style for your fam­ily.
