A TASTE OF COUNTRY LIVING ON THE TOWN FRINGE
Tucked down a quiet road on the northern outskirts of Drouin, this delightful property is a private haven from urban living.
The beautifully crafted country style homestead is positioned on an approximate 1.4 acre allotment of gorgeous gardens, wonderful outdoor entertaining areas and two paddocks for livestock.
Built for the current owner, the attention to detail, high calibre workmanship and thoughtful planning will appeal to the buyer who appreciates quality and good design.
An extensive floorplan includes four large bedrooms, two bathrooms, three living areas, a stunning red gum kitchen and a double garage URL.
Nine foot ceilings, a fresh neutral colour palate and large windows throughout, including bay windows in the living areas and the main bedroom, give the interior a light, inviting ambience.
A broad verandah, accessed by multiple doors from within the home, wraps three sides of the residence, extending to a substantial covered alfresco at the rear.
For the warmer weather, there is a fully fenced solar heated, salt chlorinated swimming pool with an adjoining cabana.
Further improvements include a powered Colorbond shed which incorporates a lined stable, tack room and storage, accessed by a separate driveway.
Two water tanks, a 13,500 litre from the house and a 5,000 litre off the shed supplement the town water supply.
The two paddocks have an automated watering system and good shelter from the elements.
Fenced veggie plots, citrus, plum and pear trees plus a quaint hen house stock the home larder. Silver birch trees along the front fence provide a lacy screen of privacy from the road.
A sealed, circular driveway lined with standard yellow roses leads to the entry of the home.
Clipped conifers and shrubs, specimen trees, neat hedging and a water fountain add to the formal setting.
An impressive entrance door with lovely leadlight side lights and transom opens to a tiled foyer and the adjoining formal living and dining room, which is carpeted.
Also off the entry, double doors lead to the spacious main bedroom with a fitted walk-in robe and an ensuite featuring a corner shower, large blackwood vanity and a separate toilet.
Bedroom four or the home office is located off the living room.
Central to the plan is the kitchen, meals and family living area, positioned to overlook the pool and paddocks.
Superbly crafted, the provincial style kitchen highlights gas hot plates, wall oven and grill, concealed microwave, dishwasher, breakfast bar and an abundance of storage including two double pantries, multiple drawers, overhead plate racks and leadlight display cabinets. Bifold doors from the living area connect to the rumpus room and onto the alfresco.
An impressive inbuilt timber bar in the rumpus is a great feature when entertaining. The two remaining bedrooms, family bathroom with a timber vanity, shower and a deep bath, a separate toilet, walk-in linen closet and the laundry are located off a hall from the family room.
Built-in storage is included in all three of the secondary bedrooms and the laundry.
Ducted gas heating, evaporative cooling, a solid fuel heater in the family room, ceiling fans in all of the bedrooms, family room and rumpus, quality carpets, window coverings and external blinds are additional features.
This is an exceptional property offering an elite lifestyle of comfort and privacy with space to pursue outdoor hobbies all within a few minutes of town services.
