A TASTE OF COUN­TRY LIV­ING ON THE TOWN FRINGE

The Gazette Real Estate - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
