With the unique combination of elegant home and separate two- bedroom cottage, superb landscaping, self-sufficiency opportunities and breathtaking views, 'Carrelly' offers a lifestyle many can only dream of. It is a truly remarkable property. On entering the property, you will be impressed by the owners' flair for style and quality and attention to detail both inside and out. Everything has been well planned and executed to the highest level. Set on approximately 2 acres, the main home and cottage have been orientated to capture panoramic views from the main living rooms across gardens, farmland and as far away as Wilson Promontory.
The driveway sweeps up to the main house, the entrance a soaring hallway with magnificent stairwell (hand crafted metal balustrade). To the left, an elegant lounge- dining room incorporates tasteful paintwork, high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, two sets of French doors, solid fuel heater and direct access out to an entertaining deck where views are spectacular. A very pleasant sunroom comes off the lounge, a much loved and utilised space by the owners. A commercially appointed kitchen will delight those who love to cook; wood-fired bakers oven, electric stove, commercial dishwasher and easily accessed open butler's pantry. The private downstairs bedroom is a real retreat, with its own separate entry, sitting area, wood heater, en suite (including separate bath,) and private outdoor sunny terrace. There's also a separate disabled toilet downstairs. The upstairs bedroom, 'a room with a view', has walk- through storage, its own en suite and a mezzanine study area. The upstairs configuration could possibly see a 3rd bedroom created into the floorplan. A three-way hot water system (solar, wood, electric boost,) solar electricity, double glazed windows to the 'South and East', quality curtains, blinds and fittings, beautiful black butt floorboards to high traffic areas and reverse cycle in main rooms are just some of the many extras in the main house.
A pathway meanders across to 'Carelly Cottage' with its two generous bedrooms, en suite, open plan living room (incl. kitchenette,) cosy wood heater and private outdoor decking. Hardy sheltered gardens are a tasteful mix of native and exotic plants, with delightful surprises at every turn. Self-sufficiency is aided by an extensive kitchen garden, berries, fruit and citrus trees, small olive grove and grape vines. Dry stone walling, a viewing deck and hand crafted timber and stone barn are real features amongst the gardens. The barn, complete with wood heater provides workshop/studio space and undercover parking.
Currently a private residence but with infrastructure such as commercial kitchen, cottage facilities and plenty of parking in place, 'Carrelly' offers the opportunity for new owners to supplement wonderful lifestyle living with additional income ( food and/or accommodation business.)'Carrelly', situated along a paved road, could also be the perfect location for small weddings, birthday parties or corporate events (STCA.) Alternatively, the accommodation could simply be shared with family and friends! With too many features to write about, inspection is welcomed to truly appreciate all that is on offer.
