9 Martins Road: Not far out of town, the attractive Martins Road precinct has some of the most attractive homes in the Naracoorte District, and has the advantage of not being a through road, thus traffic is generally of a local nature. Only 7.6km by road from Naracoorte's town centre, with sealed roads from Martins Road.
The one hectare block is elevated and has been well established with entrance road, water supply, and some landscaping. A purchaser will have the opportunity to continue the establishment to their own taste. Services include a weekly general waste collection; fortnightly green waste collection; fortnightly kerbside recycling; and a school bus stop at the front gate. This property has been meticulously built and established, with an emphasis on sustainable living.
The Residence: The home has a northerly aspect and of particular merit are the outwards opening panoramic windows overlooking the front garden.
From the front entrance, the stunning living room, kitchen, and bedrooms, all lead off a long central hall, which offers plenty of storage with two double built-in linen presses/storage areas. The initial entrance through to the open living space is most attractive, but the effect is eclipsed by the ambience provided by the glass doors leading out onto a paved pergola area, and the open space to dining and kitchen area. This offers a very light and bright disposition to the home with 2.7m ceilings being a feature throughout.
The bespoke kitchen is the centrepiece of the living space. Rather than being a place of work it is projected as a place for pleasure. The appliances and layout of the bench, storage, and pantry all add a great deal. The kitchen has enough space and work area for an army of cooks, two sinks, wine storage, new gas oven with an electric grill, and gas hotplates on a central island bench. The pantry is the largest walk-in pantry you will ever be likely to find, and has scope to be utilised as a butler's pantry, or an extra room/office.
The living area has ceiling fans, a split system air-conditioner, and 240 volt downlighting. There are three large bedrooms, all of high standard with walk-in robes, quality wall-to-wall carpet, and split system air-conditioners. The master is king size, and has a spacious walk-in robe with lots of storage capacity. The lovely bathroom is tiled in neutral tones, has a roomy glass shower alcove, and bespoke vanity. The toilet is situated next to the bathroom and is a large room with waterless urinal facilities, and custom made vanity, leaving nothing to be desired. The laundry is also outstanding with more than ample bench space, built-in cupboards, washing machine attachments, and of course a sturdy stainless steel trough, tapware, and tiling.
Exterior: Extensive paving surrounds the house with two 4m deep pergolas extending from the eastern side of the house which provide a large undercover outdoor area. These surround an open gravelled courtyard with firepit for entertaining on those cool nights. There is also the added bonus of a large brick pizza oven, surrounded by native garden for that evening of special entertainment.
The brick garage is 6m x 6.12m and has been lined, insulated, and has sufficient lighting to be used for additional living space. A two car carport adjoins the front of this garage. A covered lean-to off the garage offers additional space for trailer, boat, or caravan storage. A further 3m x 6m shed is used for storage and gardening equipment. The garden is well established with many natives, low water usage plants, and an orchard abundant in a variety of fruit trees that are all watered via an extensive dripper system. There is a 3kw solar system (with a new inverter in June 2017); as well as a gas boost solar hot water service; and 133,000 litres of rainwater storage is used throughout the house, and in the garden.
