Country charm within Urban Growth Zone
Situated only minutes from the Drouin town centre in the premium Urban Growth Zone, this 12.35 acre property offers endless options for the astute buyer.
The holding adjoins the prestigious Fairway Drive Estate with mains sewerage committed to be installed through the property. Current sketch plans for 29 lots ranging from urban blocks to larger lifestyle allotments, together with a designated wetland reserve is a further feature. However, all that aside, the original homestead and existing infrastructure should not be overlooked. Oozing country character, the residence is a delight. Behind the cottage façade is a surprisingly spacious home with three bedrooms, bathroom, two large living areas and a superb, recently renovated kitchen. Further living space is provided by a sheltered deck at the rear with splendid easterly views and two, interconnecting covered alfrescos to the side of the home. Additional improvements include the original brick dairy, converted to a garage, storage and a workshop, a lockup double garage with a concrete floor, sundry sheds and a hen house. The dairy also includes a kitchenette and a wood fire. Water is provided by a large tank for household use and a spring fed dam for stock. French doors from the brick paved alfresco lead directly into the kitchen. Modern, yet retaining a country feel, the kitchen highlights stone bench tops, white cabinetry including glass overheads, a glass splashback, stainless steel upright cooker with canopy rangehood and a Bosch dishwasher. There is ample storage with a stepin pantry and space at the island bench for friends and family to gather. Nearby is the laundry and a separate toilet, there is an additional toilet off the alfresco. Lining boards and polished floorboards are featured throughout the home, adding to the warm and inviting ambience. A solid fuel heater and split system air conditioning in the living area together with a ceiling fan in the dining room maintain climate control.
The three bedrooms have built-in robes, two also have a ceiling fan. Café blinds around the deck provide a buffer from cool winds without obstructing the lovely rural views.
The surrounding gardens are well maintained and create a private sanctuary for the home. A variety of fruit trees, a veggie patch and fresh eggs from the hen house will stock the home larder. This is indeed a fantastic opportunity for investors, developers or the buyer seeking a lifestyle property with future investment appeal.
