In a picturesque and highly sought after private location, this property offers very enjoyable, relaxed country living. Designed with style and flexibility, the house seamlessly blends rural surroundings (including Tarwin River Frontage,) and beautiful rural views with the comfort and appeal of a light filled modern design. Living here you will feel like you're a world away from any cares, yet it is just minutes away from Leongatha.
Situated on approximately a 2.47 acre block, plus 1.5 acres of Crown Land river frontage, the home is approached by circular driveway leading right up to a welcoming front veranda or double garage with workshop space. Stepping into the first of two spacious living areas, you'll automatically feel at home due to the natural light, decor and open plan living. A vaulted ceiling and high atrium windows to both ends of the dining and lounge areas certainly make a statement! Picture windows draw in views over the huge outdoor living deck and pool, river frontage and farmland beyond. The adjoining well-equipped kitchen is sure to please cooks as it has quality appliances, walk-in pantry and long breakfast bar.
Everything has been thought of in the design of the main bedroom which is at the main living end of the home. The walk-in robe is spacious, as is the tastefully finished extra-large en suite with oversized shower, soft touch drawers. The en suite even has a view of it's own! Along another wing, a powder room is central to the family room, a beautiful family bathroom with feature tiling, separate shower, toilet and bath servicing the other spacious bedrooms.
Accessed through a contemporary glassed walk way (fernery to either side,) is a huge second living area, currently used a billiards room. Like the main living room, this living area incorporates amazing feature windows, gleaming Brush Box floorboards and solid fuel heater. It is a flexible space suitable for a variety of purposes (second lounge, rumpus room etc.) The second spacious bedroom comes off this room, has reverse cycle air con. and is separate from the rest of the house, lending itself to private guest accommodation or teenager retreat.
While space and storage is at a premium inside the home the same can be said for the outdoors. The front veranda and huge outdoor decked entertaining area (including solar heated pool of over 14 metres) offers options and choices for fabulous outdoor living and entertaining. As well as two car garage parking, there's an 18m x 6m six-car shed, fantastic as a 'man cave', for additional parking, storage of 'toys' or a tradies heaven.
Gardens are low maintenance, with magnificent specimen gums dotted around the property. Family members will be pleased to be able to keep a pet or two in the adjoining paddock. Enjoy wandering the grounds, or meander down the track to the Tarwin River. Here you might be lucky enough to spot the odd platypus, eel or crayfish, not to mention the prolific birdlife in the surrounding valley of natural vegetation. In the words of the owners, they have simply loved, "being on a bit of land with few neighbours around yet so close to town facilities, and living in a picturesque tranquil spot with rural views that can't be built out". This is a property not to be missed! Your inspection by appointment only is invited.
