A relaxed country lifestyle awaits on this superb 3.7-acres (1.5ha) property with a roomy three-bedroom brick home ready to embrace your family. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside, the rural haven offers serenity and space without the hassle of caring for large acreage.
Built by the existing owners 25 years ago and carefully maintained, the north-facing house makes the most of stunning views in all directions, starting with a huge open-plan living and dining area stretching from front to back, with windows on three sides. A slow-combustion wood heater provides warmth and an extra focal point for the cooler months and there’s split-system air conditioning and a ceiling fan.
Sliding glass doors open to a wide rear veranda where you can further enjoy the wonderful southerly aspect over a large dam, where pelicans can often be seen, tree-dotted farmland and Mount Sugarloaf in the distance. There is also a wide north-facing veranda offering more peaceful vistas and glorious winter sun.
The well-lit laminate kitchen enjoys the southerly outlook and has plenty of cupboard and bench space, a wall oven, large corner pantry and a breakfast bar opening to the dining area. The fridge could be part of the sale if desired.
A hallway leads to the three bedrooms, including a massive master bedroom with ensuite, wall-to-wall built-in robes, split-system air conditioner and a ceiling fan, a second generous bedroom with built-in robes and an air conditioner and a third slightly smaller bedroom. The family bathroom has a bath and a shower and there’s a separate toilet and a large laundry.
The double lock-up garage has plenty of room for storage or a workshop at the rear and a door through to the house. As it is under the main roof, there’s also potential to convert it to a rumpus room or even a granny flat (subject to council approval).
A 22,500-litre cement rainwater tank services the house, while a 13,000-litre metered tank filled from the nearby river provides water for the garden and an established orchard of more than 15 trees, including a variety of citrus and mangoes. Mature trees along the perimeter provide privacy and leafy greenery.
Set on higher ground, the property is flood free, however the lower farmland behind is subject to flooding so it can’t be built on and there’s no danger of losing the magnificent panoramic outlook.
Surrounded by other graceful lifestyle properties, this is a serene retreat where you can relish a nurturing connection with nature and still be just a five-minute drive from Paterson’s shops, school, services and train station.
