Jan Ladmore of All Real Estate NSW is proud to offer this enchanting family home set on 7.4 ac (2.94Ha) of level grazing land that is very suitable for horses.
This gorgeous Storybook Design Home was custom designed & built to reflect the special magic and enthralling character that only these homes aspire to. Set amongst some very pretty cottage gardens with established hedges & an orchard full of productive fruit trees, this unique home really has a charisma and charm of its very own.
Storybook Designed Homes exude a character & beauty that is enchanting. These charming homes are widely renowned for their cathedral / vaulted ceilings for that great traditional look & this home is no exception. The living areas have 18ft vaulted ceilings with exposed Oregon beams. Natural light flows through the many windows.
There is a grand, ‘medieval hall’ feeling to the lounge room with its vaulted ceiling, high windows, brass light switches & proper timber shutters suggesting a by-gone era. The separate dining room has a French Provincial feel to it, being a light-filled, airy room that could also be used as a playroom, a sitting room or hobby room, with a welcoming relaxed feel to it. The alcove window would be a perfect space to be used as 2nd study nook. Throughout the house there has been a clever use of limewash feature walls.
Four bedrooms, two upstairs with a bathroom & a study, with two located downstairs with a bathroom, kitchen & living areas. The upstairs master features shutter windows & a lovely balcony with views across the valley & dam. Downstairs master features a walk-in robe & access to the garden.
The north facing functional kitchen with island bench has views across the garden. Large family room can be used for dining as it adjoins the kitchen. Perfect for visitors & family get togethers with entertaining on the outside deck, but also allows for privacy & quiet moments to just relax & enjoy the views.
The home is designed to be energy efficient to capture the sun to living areas during winter. Warmth during the colder days are no problem as this well-insulated & cosy home also has a dust-free underfloor heating system which is divided into 9 zones and powered by the 3-phase power. Naturally cool in summer as the high ceilings & shutters on the windows & ceiling fans help direct the breeze & keep the home very comfortable. The master bedroom has an air-conditioner.
This home has all the magic & character of a family home. The entrance hall invites you into this home & once inside, you feel like you could belong there. There is plenty of storage throughout the home & places to hang your hats, coats, schoolbags.

Features of this lovely property:
From the time I drove into this property, I could sense a special magical feeling to it. It exudes a warmth and character that is lacking these days in most modern homes. It is an interesting home that is well-built and designed for a family in mind. The gardens are simply gorgeous, and the owners have put a lot of thought into the layout of the property. It is well suited for horses, whether your own or adjisting. The abundance of water, particularly in these drought times will certainly give confidence to the new buyer. This is not your average, run of the mill home, the property is unique, and I look very forward to showing you. So please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like more information or would like to arrange an inspection.
