Designed to capture its rural surrounds from almost every room in the house, this single level, brick family home is set on a flat, five-acre parcel of land, within easy drive of everything.
Presenting a lifestyle opportunity for a growing family, the property is fully fenced and features some infrastructure for horse owners, with a round yard and open shed beyond the home, and plenty of room for further development (subject to council approval).
Slightly elevated and overlooking the block’s leafy south-western corner, the home boasts a large, dedicated living area and a separate dining space. Its modern, generously sized kitchen offers an additional, informal dining area, with an island bench encompassing a seated bar.
Stainless steel appliances, including an extra-large oven with five-burner gas cooktop and a dishwasher, complement the kitchen’s monochromatic colour scheme, while a plethora of bench space and cabinetry provide ample food preparation area and storage.
At the centre of the home sits a unique, sundrenched courtyard, complete with tiled flooring and arbour with retractable cover, adding shade on warmer days.
Carpet and timber flooring, countless windows, and raked ceilings with exposed timber beams truly showcase the comfort, size and natural light of this rural home.
A slow combustion fireplace and reverse cycle air conditioning unit in the main living area simply embellish the liveability of the property, year-round.
Outdoors, the home is enveloped by a sizable wraparound veranda, with the eastern side of the home taking in views of the pool and covered barbeque area.
A triple garage with a large storage room and separate covered area is positioned at the end of the driveway and offers a versatile layout for an owner with a need to run a business from home.
At just 20 minutes’ drive from Maitland and 45 minutes to Newcastle’s CBD, this property makes owning acreage and living a rural lifestyle possible, all the while being close enough for work/life balance.
