The spacious shared bathroom is a stylish affair, with subway wall tiling, walk-in shower, freestanding tub and two floating vanities with black tapware. There’s also a powder room.
A second bluestone fireplace is the focal point of a large lounge room which has dark-stained wainscoting, window seat and ceiling beams. There’s a sitting room, plus a casual meals zone with a gorgeous inset old black wood stove.
The modern kitchen has a wide bank of conservatory windows, plenty of storage, an island bench beneath charcoal pendants and stainless-steel appliances. The laundry is detached and there’s a mudroom for rear entry to the house.
Heating is hydronic and the hot water service is electric.
Four or five main paddocks have troughs, fed from dams, a bore and Deep Creek. Water tanks are replenished from creek and bore to nourish gardens. One of the large, tree-fringed dams is as pretty as a picture, attracts wildlife galore and the perfect spot to put a jetty.
The fab farm/lifestyle property, with various shedding, is a 10-minute drive from Romsey, about 65 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD and a 30-minute trip to Melbourne Airport.
