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.
