SUB­STAN­TIAL COUN­TRY HOMESTEAD IN SPEC­TAC­U­LAR SET­TING

The Gazette Real Estate - - FRONT PAGE -

Po­si­tioned amidst the spec­tac­u­lar rolling coun­try­side fif­teen min­utes drive north of War­ragul, this ap­prox­i­mate 52 acre hold­ing is an out­stand­ing life­style op­por­tu­nity.

Set amongst park­like gar­dens of sweep­ing lawns and a su­perb se­lec­tion of spec­i­men trees, the sub­stan­tial brick homestead is de­signed for a large fam­ily with five bed­rooms, two bath­rooms and mul­ti­ple liv­ing ar­eas to­gether with a beau­ti­fully ap­pointed Black­wood tim­ber kitchen.

For the warmer weather, a fully fenced so­lar heated swim­ming pool pro­vides wel­come re­lief.

Su­pe­rior ap­point­ments in­clude hard­wood floor­ing, qual­ity car­pets and win­dow cov­er­ings, dec­o­ra­tive cor­nices and a stun­ning Fal­con dual oven tak­ing pride of place in the kitchen.

Nine foot ceil­ings add to the feel­ing of space whilst ex­pan­sive glaz­ing floods the in­te­rior with nat­u­ral light and frames the glo­ri­ous views. Split sys­tem cool­ing, solid fuel heat­ing and an im­pres­sive open fire pro­vide cli­mate con­trol, sash win­dows through­out as­sist with ven­ti­la­tion.

A decked ve­ran­dah wraps three sides of the home, ex­tend­ing to a shel­tered al­fresco on the north as­pect with the most splen­did vista across the ru­ral land­scape to the state for­est on the hori­zon.

Ad­di­tional im­prove­ments in­clude a re­mote con­trolled garage, ex­ten­sive un­der deck stor­age, a 12m x 12m Amer­i­can style barn with an auto roller door and an 8m x 4.5m Color­bond shed.

Maples line the drive­way which leads to a turn­ing cir­cle at the front of the homestead and con­tin­ues around to the sheds at the rear.

A stained glass en­try door opens to a warm and invit­ing foyer with pol­ished tim­ber floor­ing and moulded cor­nices.

To the right is the main bed­room, a spa­cious re­treat with a large bay win­dow, fit­ted walk-in robe and an el­e­gant en­suite fea­tur­ing che­quered tiled floor­ing, brass tap­ware, tim­ber van­ity, over­sized shower and a sep­a­rate toi­let.

Op­po­site is the car­peted for­mal sit­ting room with the brick open fire­place.

Cen­tral to the lay­out is the fam­ily liv­ing/meals area and the kitchen. French doors from here lead to the ve­ran­dah and al­fresco.

Crafted Black­wood cab­i­netry, black counter tops and a di­a­mond pat­tern tiled splash­back cre­ate a provin­cial feel to the kitchen.

A box bay win­dow above the sink max­imises the mar­vel­lous out­look.

Over­heads, in­clud­ing a glass dis­play unit, nu­mer­ous draw­ers, small ap­pli­ance cup­board and a gen­er­ous walk-in pantry al­low an abun­dance of stor­age.

An in­te­grated dish­washer and an is­land bench are fur­ther fea­tures.

Ad­join­ing the fam­ily room is a rum­pus or games room.

The four se­condary bed­rooms, fam­ily bath­room, pow­der room, dou­ble linen press and the laun­dry are lo­cated down a hall from the cen­tral liv­ing area.

Built-in stor­age is in­cluded in all of these bed­rooms and the laun­dry. Clas­sic styling is also found in the fam­ily bath­room with tra­di­tional tiling, a porce­lain basin set into a large tim­ber van­ity, over­sized shower and a roll top, claw foot bath.

Out­side there is also a hen house, raised veg­gie boxes, as­sorted fruit trees and a charm­ing rose ar­bour.

Two large tanks with ap­prox­i­mately 90,000 litre ca­pac­ity plus ac­cess to a spring fed dam pro­vide am­ple wa­ter sup­ply.

The gen­tly un­du­lat­ing acreage is di­vided into eight pad­docks with scenic Pil­grim Creek flow­ing through the cen­tre. Shel­ter belts and grav­ity fed troughs, pumped from the dam are fur­ther fea­tures.
