Specifically designed for the original owner, this lovely three or four bedroom home has the main living, dining, kitchen and conservatory in one huge central room with soaring cathedral ceilings. The home also has double glazing and an additional living room, facing north, which could become a fourth bedroom or guest room.
The main bedroom on the other side of the generously wide hallway contains a double-shower en-suite and washing machine. The enormous kids rooms have their own wing, a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom, with huge bath, double shower and scenic views of the surrounding pastures from every room.
The rear of the house, facing north, is concreted to take advantage of all year round outdoor living and entertaining, is covered with a pergola, allowing views for miles to Mount Baw Baw and the snow in Winter and has spectacular Summer sunsets. The circular driveway and original shed are reminders of the old homestead which was originally built closer to the road.
Electronic gates lead you along the poplar and fir-lined drive, past fruit trees to the house perched higher up the block. The back garden is surrounded by fruit trees and has new raised garden beds. Down in the lower second paddock is the dam where cows graze happily or horses could be corralled. The chickens roam within the front garden and hide under the little bungalow previously used as a craft room.
This beautifully designed 6 year young home has very recently undergone some additions such as; a second large water tank, a new dishwasher, an extra air conditioner, the pergola, upgraded fencing, self closing, lockable fly-screens to all five external doors, both double and single, a convenient small front deck, a site cut for a 5 bay shed, 20 x 10 mtrs plus workshop and includes all plans and permits, and finally a small dam is in the lower paddock.
Other highlights of this home include being only 15 minutes to the main Sale shopping centre, 20 minutes to the Avon river, 20 minutes to the upgraded RAAF base, 20 minutes to Traralgon and only 1/2 an hour to the gorgeous Seaspray surf and fishing ocean beach. A good income could also be earned as an Air B & B.
What more could be said about this stunning 5 acre block and family home? It is a farmlet or hobby farm for the peaceful country life, situated on a quiet road, opposite a tiny rarely used church, halfway between Rosedale and Sale, with a short stroll down the unmade lane to the Latrobe river, it also has a school bus stop on the door step and 'heaven' all around.
The owners want to move on and are motivated sellers.
