Es­cape to par­adise

Southern Real Estate Guide - - Front Page -

Dream­ing of es­cap­ing the hus­tle and bus­tle of city liv­ing? Well here’s the ul­ti­mate op­por­tu­nity in which to do so.

Lo­cated in pic­turesque Al­fris­ton, the lifestyle block for sale at 34 Ran­furly Rd is set over 5000 square me­tres, on which you’ll dis­cover lov­ingly land­scaped gar­dens and a mini or­chard, along with a con­tem­po­rary fam­ily home and spa­cious one-bed­room unit just per­fect for el­derly fam­ily mem­bers.

The cur­rent own­ers bought the prop­erty seven years ago, and since then have to­tally trans­formed the gar­dens into the pic­turesque par­adise you’ll fi nd to­day. The drive­way is lined with mag­no­lia trees, while rose gar­dens, an olive grove, taste­ful box hedges, a shelled petanque area and wis­te­ria- cov­ered per­gola add an el­e­gant, clas­sic touch.

One of the fea­tures the own­ers have most en­joyed about this prop­erty is the peace and pri­vacy af­forded by its rural lo­ca­tion and their clever plant­ing of green­ery. An added bonus is how handy it is to the mo­tor­way and let us not for­get the mini or­chard, which comes com­plete with lemon, lime, grape­fruit, man­darin, plum, pear, fig, nec­tarine, apri­cot, bayleaf, peach, pinenut and fei­joa trees.

The home it­self is as lovely as the gar­dens! Fea­tur­ing four dou­ble bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, a fam­ily room, for­mal lounge and open plan kitchen and din­ing area, it boasts all the mod cons in­clud­ing a cen­tral vac­uum sys­tem, HRV with win­ter kit and air con­di­tion­ing. There’s also an in­ter­nal ac­cess dou­ble garage with laun­dry and sep­a­rate dou­ble garage and work­shop.

It’s also the per­fect abode for peo­ple who love to en­ter­tain, with ranch­slid­ers off both the din­ing and fam­ily room, open­ing out to a sun­lit paved pa­tio area. This space is ideal for year-round en­ter­tain­ing with a wall that can be dropped down and awning that rolls out – en­abling it to be com­pletely en­closed.

The for­mal lounge also opens out through French doors to sec­ond private paved pa­tio, while the mas­ter bed­room (which fea­tures an en suite and walk-in-wardrobe) has its own ranch­slider ac­cess to yet an­other out­door liv­ing area.

Even the one-bed­room unit has its own private court­yard, along with a sep­a­rate lounge, bath­room with shower, bath and toi­let, and open plan kitchen, din­ing and fam­ily area.

34 Ran­furly Rd will go to auc­tion on site on Satur­day June 28 at 1pm (un­less sold prior).
