WELCOME TO ‘BRAKENRIDGE’
A PROPERTY OF IMMENSE BEAUTY AND POTENTIAL
Aproperty of immense beauty and potential, the home named ‘Brakenridge’ is positioned less than ten minutes from the centre of Warragul, in the sought after Lillico region, and is surrounded by over nine acres of rural bliss. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully restored three bedroom Federation homestead with many remnant original features, along with a range of excellent farm and business facilities including an industrial sized shed, bitumen drives, plenty of parking and useful animal facilities. Manicured garden surrounds the home and inside is a combination of attractively restored spaces and newer extensions filled with rustic charm, all beautifully updated to suit a modern lifestyle .
There are two separate living spaces; a formal sitting room peacefully located next to the front entrance and featuring an open fire place, picture rails, the original decorative plaster ceilings and attractive double hung windows. Timber floors and high ceilings are consistent features throughout.
At the other side of the home is a very generous open plan living zone, part of a newer extension to the original homestead, and incorporating a large timber kitchen, dining area, a sitting nook in a broad bay window and a relaxed family room. French windows and doors open south to the beautiful verandah which wraps the home and sliding glass patio doors at the rear connect to a fabulous 6.2m x 5.8m alfresco – all under roofline. Amazing views across farmland and on to the Strzelecki Ranges are stunning. Classic design combines with modern convenience in the spacious kitchen which includes loads of storage, timber cabinets, contemporary appliances and white splash tiles. Well chosen timber windows, attractive cornice, many period details and the lovely real timber floors provide a seamless flow between the old and new sections of the home. Each of the three bedrooms is spacious with built in robes, ceiling fans, quality carpets and soft furnishings and the Federation inspired bathroom includes a claw foot bath and period tiling. The large laundry is excellent for country living and a gabled double carport, slightly detached from the rear of the home, has been thoughtfully built with Federation charm in mind.
