Country Charm with Massive Garage/Hobby Space
There's something for everyone on this 8793 sqm (approx.) of country life close to the city. Children will love running free, living in a home that can take the 'knocks', enjoying pets and maybe a pony in the acre (approx.) paddock below the house, which could also support a few stock, or perhaps continue its use grazed by a neighbour. Adults will love the flexible spaces in a home that nods to the American barn, incorporates traditional features in contemporary expression and uses a variety of timbers including Lawsoniana, Macrocarpa and Douglas Fir in crafted details including ceiling/floor and kitchen island. The upper level lounge/ library is particularly appealing and backs onto two extra rooms suggesting media room and additional storage. Wide verandahs provide shade in summer while drawing winter sun inside for passive heat from the aggregate concrete floors of the open plan living, office, laundry and hall. There are also three bedrooms, en suite and family bathroom on the ground floor, plus a walk-in storage cupboard. The huge high stud (double height) garaging will appeal to car enthusiasts as it can easily house four - six vehicles, tinkerers, those with a major project in mind or owners of a big boat or campervan. Add serene views, an orchard which includes avocado, olives, lemons, plums, nectarine and feijoas, plus a filtration system for pristine water from a shared bore and you have everything you could need to relish rural life. The property is situated in 'Mayview' a quality enclave comprising a select number of lifestyle properties overlooking farmland and out to the city and sea. Children can walk to the school bus stop and urban amenities are handy.
