First established in the 1880's as a dairy farm homestead, “Len Du' now sits proudly on a large block of approx 1221m2, just two blocks walking distance from the shops. Showcasing original period features typical of the era, 12ft ceilings, decorative cornices, mantel pieces, picture rails, leadlight doors and windows, this home is also complimented by tasteful modern day comforts.
As in several of the rooms, an impressive central hallway features dado wall panelling and feature paintwork. Leading past front bedrooms, the hall opens into a large open plan family room, approx. 5 x 13 metres. A central focus of the sitting area is a decorative mantel piece along with views out through double doors over an entertaining deck and the semi-rural surrounds. The dining section is capable of housing the largest of settings, while the adjoining kitchen is well equipped with corner pantry, island breakfast bar and fantastic stove (gas hotplates, electric oven, separate warming oven.) A separate sitting room, with lovely side French door access from verandas is a cosy place for relaxing once again with decorative mantel piece.)
Two spacious bedrooms are to the front of the home, the main featuring ornamental fireplace, mantelpiece, alcove and huge 3 unit antique wardrobe.The second queen size bedroom has BIR's plus a cleverly built-in single bed under the stairwell which leads to an upstairs loft/bedroom. A walk past under stair space to another upstairs bedroom would also make an ideal study alcove. Either of the upstairs rooms could also be used for home office, playroom or studio purposes. The home is serviced by two bathrooms, R/C, solid fuel and gas heating.
Verandas to 3 sides are perfect private places to sit outdoors at different times of the day. A fully fenced, private BBQ deck overlooks low maintenance, drought tolerant gardens, rail trail and some farmland. Drive-through side gate access to an extensive concrete parking apron and shed approx. 9 x 6m with power, will be attractive to those with multiple vehicles, boat, caravan or needing a workshop. It's not very often that period homes such as this with the winning combination of rural atmosphere, large block and central location are offered for sale. Inspect to appreciate all that is on offer.
