Style, substance and setting are three standout features in this seven year old lifestyle property. Set on approx. 8 hectares (20 acres), no expense was spared when the home was built by the current owners in 2009, incorporating the highest quality building materials, fixtures and fittings into the stunning contemporary homestead design.
Accordingly, they went that little bit extra with polished Tasmanian oak floors, custom-made solid ash windows and doors and 2.4m wide verandahs all round, just to name a few.
Their eye for style and attention to detail are evident the moment you enter the wide entry hall and spacious formal lounge showcasing a box-bay window with garden outlook, double- fronted solid fuel heater and French doors to the side verandah.
Opposite, the main suite includes fully fitted walk-through robe and ensuite with bath, oversized shower and separate toilet. In another wing, two more bedrooms share access to a two-way bathroom and powder room. Understated quality fittings are matched throughout and include stone-topped vanities and splash backs.
The large open-plan family-living, dining and kitchen zone forms the heart of the home. Cooking will be a delight in this kitchen, bathed in light from north-facing windows. The kitchen is beautifully equipped with stone bench tops over numerous soft-close drawers, two-drawer dishwasher, ILVE range and large walk-in pantry. Dine in style in the roomy dining area after selecting a bottle from the temperature and humidity-controlled, 800-bottle wine cellar before relaxing with the family beside the fire. Ducted evaporative cooling ensures comfort over the summer months.
A versatile fourth bedroom does double duty as a guest room or study with more French doors and garden views. The laundry includes ample storage and a concertina ladder to an amazing attic room. Approximately 5 squares, the attic is fully-lined with full-height ceiling space and offers a multitude of uses – rumpus/teen retreat, media room, another bedroom and ensuite or storage.
The house is embraced by manicured gardens and features lovely rural vistas over the two dams beyond. Other essential outdoor features include double carport with storage cells, four-bay Colourbond shed with workshop, 18 solar panels,160 KL rainwater storage and cattle yards with loading ramp. The land is divided into five paddocks of improved pasture, all with water access and excellent fencing.
Stylish and carefree living starts here with easy access to state forest, the O’Keefe Rail Trail and Lake Eppalock – it feels like a world away but in reality it’s only a five-minute drive to Strathfieldsaye shops, schools and 15 minutes from Bendigo.
