A handsome homestead that borrows from the Federation look, this one is on about 2.09 hectares of renowned Romsey soil – a great environment for critters, such as alpacas, sheep or a pony. Three mostly cypress-rimmed paddocks plus level land to create a menage come in mighty handy for a rural lifestyle that’s just five minutes from town.

Beyond a circular driveway, pretty gardens and fretworked verandah (on three sides), entry is to a wide foyer where the period-style features seen all through start the journey. These include cedar dado walls, two-tone paintwork, ceiling roses, deep cornices, brass light switches, bay windows and plenty of leadlight

On the right, an open lounge room – with Axminster carpet and a wood heater set in exposed brickwork – adjoins a step-up dining room. In here, polished floorboards, green wall paint and multi-paned french doors to the back verandah deliver a pleasing aura for more formal occasions.

Next door, there’s a step-up study (or fifth bedroom), then double doors to the large step-up (lots of differing floor levels in this place) main bedroom. This has, again, Axminster carpet, as well as a door to a side verandah. A six-door wardrobe and an open en suite in period burgundy and cream, with spa and enclosed toilet, are included.

Three more fitted bedrooms, at the opposite end, neighbour a bathroom (in period green and cream, with clawfoot tub), a separate toilet and a laundry with good storage and garage access.

Back to the entry foyer: On the left, through double doors, is a games/family room with wide-format pine floorboards, a second wood heater, and recessed glass-fronted display shelves. This room is open to the casual meals zone and step-up kitchen.

A stack of cupboards, servery bench, large walk-in pantry, wall oven and 900mm electric cooktop fit out the cooks’ domain.

The property’s other features include a large Colorbond shed with concrete floor and power, a solar system that cuts energy bills, three water tanks plus town water, and an extended remote-controlled double garage.
