This comfortable home is hidden away on half an acre amongst extensive gardens, providing a haven for native birds, wildlife and peaceful seclusion for the residents. Stone steps lead up a pathway, past the frog pond, to the verandah which spans the length of the house. The large double front doors open to a formal tiled entry. Upon entering the home, you have a few options; to your right is the study, with plenty of storage options and views onto the pond, while to your left is the large formal lounge room with sliding glass doors opening onto a wooden deck featuring 180 degree view of the surrounding natural environment – perfect for a cool afternoon tipple in summer with friends.
The kitchen features a walk-in pantry, mains gas stove and oven, terracotta tiling and a small adjoining dining area. Sliding glass doors lead out to a paved, covered outdoor entertaining area where lush plants create a private, tropical oasis and a playground for visiting quenda families! The master bedroom off the central hall is big enough for a California king size bed, a full-size vanity and features built-in robes. Opposite and across the hall from the master bedroom is the tiled first bathroom with shower, toilet and vanity. The passage leads on further to an activity room which has sliding glass door access to the front yard. Three double bedrooms, large laundry with linen cupboard and under-stair storage, and a second bathroom with shower and toilet also lead off this room. The laundry has access to a paved courtyard with a flourishing passionfruit vine!
A staircase leads up from the central activity room to a large airy living/activity space. Gas heating makes this room a great retreat in winter. From a small balcony up high, immerse yourself visually in the uninterrupted expanse of green which includes bordering crown land with a winter creek and a small park over the road. However, the real jewel of the second story is the purpose built art room. This room has an adjoining storeroom, ample built in shelving and cupboard space, a sink and reverse cycle air-conditioning. Release and nurture your creative spirit while absorbing the sights and sounds of the surrounding atmosphere. On the second storey is the third bathroom with a corner bath/shower , WC and hand basin. All rooms have views of the garden which is reticulated from a bore on the property.
The separate garage has 3 phase power and can accommodate 3 cars and ample storage space. Within the garden is a large separate location with some raised beds for vegetables and a small orchard with established, productive fruit trees including lemons, lemonade, mandarin, orange, nectarine and olive. There is also a large fig tree and blueberries located elsewhere on the property. For those searching for a green sanctuary in the Hills, you have found it.
