The Gazette Real Estate - - VIEW -

For the buyer seek­ing a life­style and not just a home, this charm­ing prop­erty on the fringe of Drouin could be the an­swer. The char­ac­ter res­i­dence is po­si­tioned on an ap­prox­i­mate 2.4 acre level al­lot­ment with plenty of space for out­door ac­tiv­i­ties and pur­suits. Cur­rently zoned Low Den­sity Res­i­den­tial, the po­ten­tial for fu­ture de­vel­op­ment and sub­di­vi­sion (STCA) is an at­trac­tive in­vest­ment op­tion. Nes­tled amongst a tran­quil gar­den set­ting of ma­ture trees and flow­er­ing shrubs, the home is serene and pri­vate from the out­side world. The broad front porch, dec­o­ra­tive lead­light en­try doors and quaint leaded sash win­dows give a hint to the Cal­i­for­nian Bun­ga­low style. A step in­side re­veals many orig­i­nal fea­tures of this time­less beauty in­clud­ing tim­ber pan­elling in the over­sized en­trance hall, pic­ture and plate rails, beau­ti­ful dec­o­ra­tive ceil­ing pan­els and deep sill win­dows. Four be­d­rooms, two bath­rooms, for­mal liv­ing room, sep­a­rate din­ing room, fam­ily room and a farm­house kitchen are in­cluded in the floor­plan. Po­si­tioned off the en­try hall are the main bed­room with a walk-in robe and the for­mal liv­ing room fea­tur­ing a brick open fire place with a tim­ber man­tel. Lovely Art Deco French doors al­low the liv­ing room to be closed off from the hall and the ad­join­ing din­ing room.

Also from the en­try, a short pas­sage­way con­nects the sec­ond bed­room, main bath­room with a bath, shower and a van­ity, then through to the kitchen. Func­tional, light and wel­com­ing, the kitchen in­cludes tim­ber cab­i­nets, lively green lam­i­nate bench tops, a gas/elec­tric com­bi­na­tion cooker, dish­washer and a ceil­ing fan.

The large is­land bench dou­bles as a break­fast bar. Nearby is the laun­dry with builtin cup­boards and a sep­a­rate toi­let. From the kitchen a door leads to a brick paved pa­tio and onto the rear yard with lovely views across sur­round­ing farm­land to the south­ern ranges. An ex­ten­sion to the orig­i­nal home has cre­ated the spa­cious fam­ily room, two ad­di­tional be­d­rooms with built-in robes and the sec­ond bath­room. Tim­ber dado con­tin­ues the coun­try theme in this liv­ing area whilst a solid fuel heater and a split sys­tem air condi- tioner main­tain cli­mate con­trol. French doors lead out­side to the gar­den. Ad­di­tional im­prove­ments in­clude a steel garage with a con­crete floor and power, a gar­den shed, large wa­ter tank, so­lar pan­els and sundry out­build­ings.

The acreage is di­vided into four pad­docks and there is a small or­chard of as­sorted fruit trees. Lo­cated ap­prox­i­mately three kilo­me­tres from the town cen­tre, the train sta­tion, schools and sport­ing fa­cil­i­ties all within a short drive. Coun­try char­ac­ter, town con­ve­nience and with fu­ture de­vel­op­ment po­ten­tial, num­ber 75 Gard­ner and Hol­man Road Drouin is a unique op­por­tu­nity.
