MODERN COUNTRY RETREAT IN PARKLIKE SETTING
Previously owned for a time as a country retreat within commutable distance to the city by well-known TV personality Denise Drysdale, this 100 year old cottage has been renovated and extended by the current owners and is now a brilliant home exuding Australian country style.
And who can resist the charm of a modern country home?
There is something alluring and relaxing that always makes us feel comfortable and welcome – and this stunning four-bedroom residence, on six beautiful acres, is an outstanding example!
Perfectly maintained surrounds add to the brilliance and include clipped hedges, mature trees in a park-like setting, broad expanses of lawn and pretty winding pathways leading to the verandahs.
Wrought iron lacework decorates the front verandah of the Circa 1915 home and there are many other features in the original cottage part of the home which have been thoughtfully preserved and give a nod to its origin, like the high ceilings, original fireplaces, weatherboard exterior and original timber floors in many rooms.
Modern convenience has been carefully added through extension and combines seamlessly with the original features to create this very beautiful, spacious and interesting home.
From the peaceful formal lounge at the very front through the second lounge or rumpus, then on to the open plan family living area across the rear of the home, the emphasis is on a relaxed lifestyle.
Original open fires highlight both lounges and the front room has beautiful bespoke cabinetry either side of the mantle for display with added charm from the original windows with wide timber sills.
The main living area is a rangy, open plan space and includes the contemporary kitchen, the dining area and family room highlighted by a brick chimney with solid fuel heater.
Timber double hung windows line the entire east side of the room and enjoy stunning view across farmland to the Baw Baw Mountains – what a vista!
Glass French doors open to the covered north deck, which in turn opens to the solar heated pool, surrounded by glass safety fencing immediate to the house – in all, a spectacular indoor-outdoor living zone which is ideal for entertaining.
Timber floor boards add a rich ambience and the country style kitchen has a full range of modern appliances and convenience plus there’s even a cellar beneath the home - a real surprise!
There are three additional bedrooms, two include built in robes and each room is beautifully presented with quality decor and high end soft furnishings – a constant theme throughout – and the family bathroom displays modern charm.
The well-appointed home office has custom cabinets and opens to the main bedroom suite - a private combination of rooms including a roomy walk in robe and a stunning ensuite with a glass shower, twin vanities and sleek fixtures and finishes.
Deep windows and glass doors lead from this superb bedroom to the deck and pool beyond and enjoy a north east orientation - what a lovely outlook every morning!
The gently sloping acreage is well fenced and watered and further amenity is provided by a large area near the home with an excellent four-bay garage/carport (including one bay with a roller door), another single car garage, extensive parking space and sundry shedding servicing the farmlet.
Positioned along a quiet country road and surrounded by farmland and stands of natural bush, this is the ideal country retreat, and represents a unique and limited opportunity to secure readymade luxury and rural living at its finest!
