This stunning home offers exceptional living on 4.4470 hectares in a convenient location just minutes from the edge of the city. Superbly appointed with garaging for over eight vehicles in addition to numerous sheds and a separate self-contained flat with three bedrooms. Comfortable and modern (built 2005), boasting high-performance Hebel construction, the home is set in beautifully landscaped gardens complemented by three paddocks.
Positioned well back from the road, down a treelined driveway, the home is set amidst mature specimen trees and evokes a European country home with a sense of solidity and permanence. This ambience continues through to the main living space - a wonderful, open-plan room with a comfortable sitting area, where French doors frame picture-perfect garden views, flowing to dining and a high-spec kitchen. Double doors connect an additional formal lounge, where a gas fire is an appealing feature on cooler winter nights - though the house is exceptionally warm with ducted heating, under-tile heating in bathrooms and entranceway, and three heat-pumps. The lounge opens to an enchanting 'garden room' that encourages enjoyment of the surrounding garden. Outdoor living has been well-planned here, with a north-facing veranda accessible from the main living room and an additional covered al fresco entertaining area. A lift provides the ultimate future-proofing and everyday convenience up to the first floor, where the master bedroom boasts a luxurious tiled ensuite bathroom. A second bedroom with direct bathroom access is ideal for guests, while two more double bedrooms and an office (or fifth bedroom) share a family bathroom with spa bath. There's a separate laundry and four-car internal-access garage, plus a separate four-car garage with additional hobby space/workshop. Adding exciting possibilities, the separate three-bedroom flat on the property contains a kitchen, lounge, bathroom and laundry, while numerous sheds on the property include a tractor shed, double shed, 8 bay sheds (3 powered) and a 2-bay shed connected to the flat.
