Those who aspire to an idyllic country lifestyle near the coast, without sacrificing easy access to the amenities of the city, will warm to this outstanding rural estate.
It’s a few minutes’ drive to fishing spots, sandy beaches and sheltered swimming waters, though there are so many reasons to stay at home and revel in the peace and tranquility of this special place.
The property consists of a comfortable, established home and freestanding studio on a 1.7ha block, which is mostly in native vegetation with infrastructure in place for running it as a rewarding, manageable hobby farm.
Reached via a long, tree-lined driveway from a sealed road, the home is comfortable and well appointed. It boasts a versatile layout to give family members their own private space as well as rooms to share meals and activities.
Inside, natural timber features reflect the setting and extensive glazing creates a sunny, warm ambience while allowing an outlook over the attractive garden. This consists of an area of lawn with garden beds and a backdrop of gum trees attracting an abundance of birdlife.
The generous lounge, with classic parquetry flooring, flows through to the sizeable kitchen, with gas cooking, a pantry and a breakfast bar, and the dining room with a wood fire big enough to heat the entire living space.
Down a few steps is a delightful sunroom, and at the end of the house, a terrific games room.
The big master bedroom has two built-in robes and a tastefully modernised en suite bathroom featuring a clawfoot bath, shower, toilet and vanity. One of the others is a double with a dressing room, built-in robe and en suite, and the third has a bathroom right next to it.
Another significant advantage is the freestanding, self-contained studio a few steps away from the main house. This would also be ideal for family members to live independently as it consists of two living areas, a bedroom, kitchen and shower room with a toilet.
Outbuildings include a double garage with an adjoining carport, garden sheds and a shade house.
The property is zoned general agriculture, and has enough cleared land for running a few sheep, keeping chooks and growing veggies. Fencing is good and three tanks and a dam provide ample water.
School buses run on the nearby main road to Albany, which is a scenic 20-minute drive away from this well-maintained holding.
