Escape to paradise
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).
