A taste of ru­ral liv­ing min­utes from town

The Gazette Real Estate - - VIEW -

Of­fer­ing all the peace and pri­vacy of a ru­ral life­style, yet only a five minute drive from War­ragul and Drouin, this ap­prox­i­mate 3.4 acre prop­erty is an ideal op­tion. The res­i­dence is set high on the prop­erty to cap­ture the sun and lovely views of sur­round­ing farm­land, a large, nearby dam and the dis­tant ranges. Partially ren­o­vated, the in­te­rior fea­tures four bed­rooms, mod­ern re­fur­bished bath­room, two large liv­ing rooms, up­dated kitchen/diner and a laun­dry with a sep­a­rate shower room and a sec­ond toi­let.

A car­port URL al­lows cov­ered ac­cess to the home whilst a rus­tic out­door al­fresco caters for out­door en­ter­tain­ing. Fur­ther fea­tures in­clude a four bay steel shed, gar­den shed, tanks and town wa­ter.

Set back from the road, the home is ac­cessed by a long drive­way which leads to a turn­ing cir­cle, the car­port then onto the shed and the rear of the prop­erty. Po­si­tioned off the en­try hall are three of the bed­rooms, bath­room, dou­ble li­nen press and the for­mal liv­ing room. Two of the bed­rooms have built-in robes, the main bed­room in­cludes a walk-in robe. The bath­room has been styled with smart grey til­ing, white fix­tures and in­cludes a bath, shower, van­ity and a toi­let. In orig­i­nal con­di­tion, the liv­ing room has a vin­tage feel with a tim­ber pan­elled wall and a brick fire­place which has been con­verted to builtin shelves. Ad­join­ing is a tiled land­ing with a slid­ing door to the front pa­tio, cre­at­ing a sec­ond en­try point to the home. Fur­ther along from the land­ing is the kitchen/diner. New lam­i­nate floor­ing, bench tops and painted tim­ber cab­i­netry is fresh and func­tional. Ap­pli­ances in­clude a ce­ramic cook­top, wall oven and an Asko dish­washer.

A large built-in cup­board in the meals area al­lows additional stor­age. Nearby is the laun­dry, shower room and a sep­a­rate toi­let. Ad­ja­cent is a mud room with out­side ac­cess, a handy space for coats and boots.

The sec­ond liv­ing room ad­joins the kitchen/diner, a more re­laxed liv­ing space with a brick fea­ture wall and a solid fuel heater. A slid­ing door leads out­side to the al­fresco where the peace­ful ru­ral out­look and far reach­ing views across to Mount Worth and the ranges can be ap­pre­ci­ated. Bed­room four, also with built-in robes, is lo­cated off the sec­ond liv­ing area. Both liv­ing rooms and the kitchen/diner have a warm, northerly as­pect with large win­dows to max­imise the light. Ceil­ing fans in all of the bed­rooms, split sys­tem air con­di­tion­ers and fans in the liv­ing ar­eas en­sure the home is com­fort­able all year round. With ma­jor ren­o­va­tions com­plete, there is huge po­ten­tial here to cre­ate a won­der­ful home and life­style for the as­tute buyer.
