The board and batten 1980’s home is constructed on a concrete floor and has been renovated inside by the current owner around 2014. The formal entrance enters the house via a feature wooden door with glass side panels into a tiled entrance area. From here you enter the country style kitchen, dining area and there is a generous open lounge to the north of the living areas. This part of the house is heated with a combustion heater standing on feature tiled area for winter warmth and the whole living area is decorated in light neutral colours. This area features large windows, bifold windows, French doors and then opens out onto a wooden patio area to give great outdoor flow to the garden. The sun aspect into all these three areas has been planned for morning kitchen sun which then moves around the dining and into the lounge to catch the afternoon sun. The windows are all fitted with quality venetian blinds. There are several different pitches and angles of roof within the living area which further give the home a cosy country feel.
The renovated kitchen with a definite classic country look has a Macrocarpa feature benchtop, and black-eco granite sink and bench top. There is a ‘Classique’ induction hobb c/w extractor fan and an electric oven. There are plenty of soft–touch drawers and cupboards with additional pantry space out behind in the large garage area. Modern LED down lighting feature throughout the kitchen, dining and lounge areas. The floor throughout this lower area of the home is wood plank vinyl for easy clean and comfort under foot. Lastly downstairs there is a large approx. 56 sq.m garage with a dry-cool store area, lots of storage and an adjacent laundry area with exterior access to the clothesline and garden. The garage area has a double electric door and internal access into the kitchen area.
Downstairs there are two bedrooms- one single and one larger double bedroom both serviced with a well-appointed bathroom which is tiled and has a vanity c/w shower dome, heater and extractor fan, heated towel rail and vanity. There is a separate toilet with hand basin.
Moving up stairs there are a further two bedroom both with dressing rooms and a shared bathroom. A landing area between the rooms then flows into a large lounge area with windows to the north and an electric awning system for shade in summer.
Outside the main garden area of approx. 4,500 sq.m is complimented with a large separate shed and lean to which was once used for temporary accommodation. This approx. 100 sq.m shed with lean to has the potential to be further utilised as a large workshop etc. The garden area is planted in a large range of fruit trees including olives, citrus, apples plum, figs and berry fruit. There are sheltered raised garden areas for the berry fruit and veges and the adjacent gardens although extensive are relatively easy care as both mulching and the maturity of the shrubs helps keep things in order.
There are two adjacent paddocks with one being chicken proof and these could be future developed or utilised to run poultry.
In summary this desirable 4-bedroom double storey home on 1.2 ha of rural property represents a beautiful lifestyle choice for a family or couple wanting to get into good country living. “Singing Frog cottage” will be a beautiful lifestyle choice.
