Pre­vi­ously owned for a time as a coun­try re­treat within com­mutable dis­tance to the city by well-known TV per­son­al­ity Denise Drysdale, this 100 year old cot­tage has been ren­o­vated and ex­tended by the cur­rent own­ers and is now a bril­liant home ex­ud­ing Aus­tralian coun­try style.

And who can re­sist the charm of a mod­ern coun­try home?

There is some­thing al­lur­ing and re­lax­ing that al­ways makes us feel com­fort­able and wel­come – and this stunning four-bed­room res­i­dence, on six beau­ti­ful acres, is an out­stand­ing ex­am­ple!

Per­fectly main­tained sur­rounds add to the bril­liance and in­clude clipped hedges, ma­ture trees in a park-like set­ting, broad ex­panses of lawn and pretty wind­ing path­ways lead­ing to the ve­ran­dahs.

Wrought iron lace­work dec­o­rates the front ve­ran­dah of the Circa 1915 home and there are many other fea­tures in the orig­i­nal cot­tage part of the home which have been thought­fully pre­served and give a nod to its ori­gin, like the high ceil­ings, orig­i­nal fire­places, weath­er­board ex­te­rior and orig­i­nal tim­ber floors in many rooms.

Mod­ern con­ve­nience has been care­fully added through ex­ten­sion and com­bines seam­lessly with the orig­i­nal fea­tures to cre­ate this very beau­ti­ful, spa­cious and in­ter­est­ing home.

From the peace­ful for­mal lounge at the very front through the sec­ond lounge or rum­pus, then on to the open plan fam­ily liv­ing area across the rear of the home, the em­pha­sis is on a re­laxed life­style.

Orig­i­nal open fires high­light both lounges and the front room has beau­ti­ful be­spoke cab­i­netry ei­ther side of the man­tle for dis­play with added charm from the orig­i­nal win­dows with wide tim­ber sills.

The main liv­ing area is a rangy, open plan space and in­cludes the con­tem­po­rary kitchen, the din­ing area and fam­ily room high­lighted by a brick chim­ney with solid fuel heater.

Tim­ber dou­ble hung win­dows line the en­tire east side of the room and en­joy stunning view across farm­land to the Baw Baw Moun­tains – what a vista!

Glass French doors open to the cov­ered north deck, which in turn opens to the so­lar heated pool, sur­rounded by glass safety fenc­ing im­me­di­ate to the house – in all, a spec­tac­u­lar in­door-out­door liv­ing zone which is ideal for en­ter­tain­ing.

Tim­ber floor boards add a rich am­bi­ence and the coun­try style kitchen has a full range of mod­ern ap­pli­ances and con­ve­nience plus there’s even a cel­lar be­neath the home - a real sur­prise!

There are three ad­di­tional bed­rooms, two in­clude built in robes and each room is beau­ti­fully pre­sented with qual­ity decor and high end soft fur­nish­ings – a con­stant theme through­out – and the fam­ily bath­room dis­plays mod­ern charm.

The well-ap­pointed home of­fice has cus­tom cab­i­nets and opens to the main bed­room suite - a pri­vate com­bi­na­tion of rooms in­clud­ing a roomy walk in robe and a stunning en­suite with a glass shower, twin van­i­ties and sleek fix­tures and fin­ishes.

Deep win­dows and glass doors lead from this su­perb bed­room to the deck and pool be­yond and en­joy a north east ori­en­ta­tion - what a lovely out­look ev­ery morn­ing!

The gen­tly slop­ing acreage is well fenced and wa­tered and fur­ther amenity is pro­vided by a large area near the home with an ex­cel­lent four-bay garage/car­port (in­clud­ing one bay with a roller door), an­other sin­gle car garage, ex­ten­sive park­ing space and sundry shed­ding ser­vic­ing the farm­let.

Po­si­tioned along a quiet coun­try road and sur­rounded by farm­land and stands of nat­u­ral bush, this is the ideal coun­try re­treat, and rep­re­sents a unique and limited op­por­tu­nity to se­cure ready­made lux­ury and ru­ral liv­ing at its finest!

In­spec­tion is by ap­point­ment only.
