This captivating property of about 93.07 hectares fits the bill for a choice of lifestyles, but one factor that will universally appeal is the scenic setting from all angles. Large, leafy-edged lakes, forested areas and pastureland form a patchwork of beauty, and views from the elevated house precinct are really something.
There’s a paddock for a pony, an orchard, lovely gardens and lawns, two dams and five 22,500-litre water tanks. To cap that off, there’s a 12 x 42-metre clear-span shed with rail for overhead crane, three-phase power, office and workshops.

The house has spacious rooms with an innate elegance, the decor tending to classic – such as quality window furnishings in traditional style, the black-and-white flooring and the multi-paned windows.
However, one aspect of this place beautifully defies tradition: a massive tiled entertainment room with timber highlight walls, centred by a spa and winter-warmed by a wood heater, has fabulous conservatory roof and windows at one end, bang-on for box seat views.
Open-plan living areas include a graceful lounge-dining room with a plaster pitched ceiling, and a gas log fire under a traditional white mantelpiece; and an expansive sitting-meals area where the white wall paint – used throughout – bounces around the light. The sitting area, with an exposed brick highlight wall, is carpeted.
The timeless black-and-white kitchen has scads of bench space and storage, a walk-in pantry and appliances sporting either the Bosch or Miele tag.
A study behind double doors is tucked away off the entry foyer and, beyond the spa room, there’s a bedroom and bathroom, ideal for guests. The shower in this bathroom has a picture window framing an atrium-style space planted with tree ferns.
The remaining four bedrooms are upstairs, along with the main bathroom and separate toilet. The spacious main bedroom has walk-through robes and a large dual-basin en suite.
This terrific property, with integrated remote-controlled double garage, is on the edge of town, with the primary school and shops a five-minute drive away.
