The heart of the home is the open-plan family living room with sunny nooks created from bay windows offering perfect contemplation areas for reading or to take in views of the inspired native garden. The dining area is generous and accentuated by an upstairs gallery space, while the adjoining kitchen is functional and features plenty of bench space, double electric oven and walk-in pantry.
There are four bedrooms, one on the ground floor with built-in robes and ensuite bathroom; an adjoining dressing room is currently used as a dedicated home office, but could easily become a fifth bedroom. Upstairs there are three further double bedrooms, the main is zoned as a parents retreat with built-in robes and views across the property. The second and third bedrooms also have built-in robes and are serviced by the upstairs family bathroom. An unutilised attic space could easily provide further accommodation or hobby space. Other features include sunroom, reverse-cycle air conditioning and laundry utility room.
Outside, there’s a covered alfresco BBQ area, large powered workshop with sundry shedding and undercover parking for up to six cars. Plus there’s self-contained living quarters for the teenager in your life or an ageing parent and 96,000 litre freshwater tank supply.
The home is perfectly situated on a landscaped 3.7 hectare, (approx. 9.14 acre), rural allotment with expansive lawns and several established native trees, covered orchard with a variety of apple, pear, stone and citrus fruits, plus a chicken run with attached kitchen garden.
The property is subdivided into four main paddocks and offers a private and quiet living environment within minutes of the Inverleigh township and is perfectly suited to a growing family. Zoned Farming Zone and an easy commute to Geelong, Melbourne and Surf Coast beaches.
