Situated on an elevated 4000 sqm block, surrounded by beautiful gardens, is this immaculately presented, unique, 2 storey home, built from genuine Mt Gambier limestone.
A solid steel verandah surrounds the house on 3 sides, providing year round comfort and protection.
The house consists of 4 bedrooms plus study or 5 bedrooms; 3 with BIR and master with WIR and ensuite. The family bathroom is full of character, with a large shower and claw foot bath.
A large, practical kitchen with SS appliances, including dishwasher, natural gas 900mm cooktop and
an electric oven. It features a huge amount of storage including a useful pantry.
A large, open plan dining and family room opens up via double doors to another living area currently used as a library/snug. This room could easily be converted into a formal dining area, perfect for those big Christmas dinners!
French doors from the family room opens out onto the beautiful rear garden.
The home maker will enjoy the well designed laundry, with large bench space and built in dirty clothes hampers. It incorporates abundant storage, including a walk in linen cupboard and a clothes airing cupboard.
The home is heated with a charming gas log fire in the family room and supplemented by ducted gas heating throughout. Ducted evaporative air conditioning cools the house in summer, although it's rarely required due to the excellent insulation provided by the solid stone construction and wide verandahs.
A light filled stairway leads up to the first floor and opens up to the 3rd living area, study nook and large bedroom. An ideal retreat for the teenager in the family. Under the stairs is a large store room, currently set up as a wine cellar.
High, 9 ft ceilings feature throughout and ceiling fans are in all bedrooms and the upper level.
This beautiful home is surrounded by an established garden that has obviously been designed with flair, energy and imagination. The garden is now at a stage where it is low maintenance. While it consists of many native plantings, the garden celebrates the seasons with deciduous trees which provide fragrant blossom in the Springtime and vibrant hues of amber and red in the Autumn. A joy to watch! All the hard work is done, but as no garden is ever complete, it lends itself to a new owner to come in and add their own touches.
The property has a rainwater tank, plumbed to the kitchen. A further 3 more tanks provide approx 20,240 L of water storage.
Outbuildings consist of a large, 5 bay, 15m x 7.5m colourbond shed fully set up for the tradie or the serious DIY handy person. There are 2 generous sized garden sheds and a fernery.
The property provides a 2 car parking bay and a 2 car carport which is high enough to accommodate the family caravan. Adjacent to this and right at the back door, is a large, enclosed entertainment area with ample space for large outdoor furniture and the BBQ. This area catches the relaxing and refreshing cool evening breeze after those hot summer days.
A secluded and cosy firepit adds to the entertainment possibilities on this amazing property.
Whilst enjoying the space on such a large block, in a suburb of Bendigo, convenience is assured with an easy and quick commute to the CBD. The property is close to the sports centre, local football oval, a new childcare centre and 2 primary schools. A local supermarket, bakery, general store and new medical clinic add to the convenience. Bus stops are in walking distance from the front door.
NBN is available.
Subdivision of a 1000m2 block at rear is also an option STCA.
A wonderful home waiting for the next family to make their own memories in it!
