Eclectic Home, Large Bush Block 1,511 Sqm
Architecturally inspired by the ‘Sydney School style’, set on a very large 1,511 sqm of sloping land. Within walking distance to village and railway station, this is a very rare opportunity to acquire a spacious house (approx. 312 sqm floor space), in a sound but very original condition, ripe for renovation. The home is constructed of solid block external walls, internal steel supporting frame, offering a wide variety of renovation options or demolish and rebuild STCA. NB this property is not in a conservation zone!
From the street, the driveway leads past a free standing double car-port and mature gardens comprising citrus, natives, ornamentals and a magnificent Angophora down to the house and second large double carport with large workshop (potential to extend above). A set of stairs leads to the front entry veranda, walk into the home along a gallery with floor to ceiling glass walls to one side framing the garden and the semi-open kitchen. A sunny meals nook adjacent to the kitchen allows for great family interaction. The main lounge room is floored with timber and panelled timber ceilings convey a Japanese accent to the space. There is a tranquil ‘book nook’ overlooking the back garden/bushland descending to the creek at the bottom of the hill with a variety of plantings including a mature Macadamia tree. The back of the home feels like it was once an open veranda that has been enclosed and houses a long room with the access staircase to the lower level. There are three bedrooms, a full main bathroom separate shower and bath and a self-contained WC.
The lower level of the home is an enormous space featuring 2.58m ceilings, a convict era handmade brick feature wall to one end, a massive open fire place large enough to slow cook stews at the other. The room to one side looks out to the bush, has a bathroom and separate toilet and the other side leads to a covered ‘chill-out’ bbq area. This space has a multitude of uses including bedroom, guest/inlaw accom, billiards or gym room, versatile to say the least.

The lower level is very large with high ceilings and offers a multitude of options including bedroom, guest accom, games room, whatever you want to make of it.
