At the end of a long driveway past sweeping lawn dotted with trees and garden areas, arrival is at more low-maintenance gardens celebrating the essential rural look.
Entry to the house is directly into an expansive living room laid with timeless slate floor tiles; it also has the natural timber lintels, skirts, architraves and window frames seen all through the house which add much character.
Living spaces are more than ample here. There’s also a family-meals space adjoining the kitchen which has matte floorboards, a grey accent wall and a wood heater.
And then there’s a separate rumpus room which, as does the family room, accesses the east-facing gable-roofed outdoor dining area.
The main bathroom and toilet are separate, while the laundry is a good size and has good storage.
The smart modern kitchen has loads of mid-grey cabinetry, pale timber benches including a brekkie bar for at least five – under contemporary pendants – white subway splashback tiles and a french-door pantry and 900mm cooker.
As well as a study (or fifth bedroom), there are four fitted and carpeted bedrooms, the main with grey accent wall, a walk-in robe and an en suite with the vanity trimmed with timber.
A big grey Colorbond shed has an attached carport, and behind this is a vast lawn for the kids to have a kick of the footy or to plant, perhaps, some fruit trees or whack up a chook run.
And another alfresco area out back
allows kicking back to watch the glorious sunsets.
Other features at this fine property include multiple ceiling fans, heating and cooling and a double carport. Nearby heritage-listed forests come for free.
The planned outer ring road will be four minutes away, the planned new Ferris Road town centre about five.
