One of those timeless brick veneers, a pool and exceptional sheds make this property an absolute winner for families, tradies, hobbyists and savvy buyers.

On an old-school one-acre block on the edge of town, the beautifully maintained house is further enhanced by the mature gardens where silver birches, other mature exotics and roses make a splash amid sweeping lawns.

The house has four bedrooms, each with oatmeal-toned carpet and three with built-in robes. One has a wall of timber cabinetry, making it an option as a study. The main bedroom has mirrored robes and an open en suite with dual basins and enclosed toilet.

The first living area, a carpeted open lounge room off the entry, has a wood heater (supplementing ducted heating and cooling) and multi-paned windows dressed in soft-pastel floral drapes and fabric pelmets. A wall of timber cabinetry in here has the capacity to create warmth and intimacy when filled with family treasures and books.

The adjacent family-meals space is laid with the same rich floating floorboards as in the entry, while the kitchen has plenty of timber cupboards, a french-door pantry, an electric cooktop, Westinghouse wall oven and Bosch dishwasher.

A large gabled pergola above brick paving is the spot to retreat to once a swim in the solar-heated pool is over. The securely fenced pool is edged in bricks and the trees and lawns around it create an oasis feel.

One of two driveways heads down the back where two giant sheds are found. The first one can be accessed via the drive-through double garage; the second shed has four roller doors, a kitchenette with new oven, a mezzanine storage area and multiple power points.

In between each shed is an open bay with a new powder room, perfectly placed for pool users. In front of the sheds, there’s a huge crushed rock parking area, so incredibly well set up for tradies.

Down the back of the yard, there’s a fenced vegie garden and two big water tanks – although town water is connected. The rear boundary is heavily planted for privacy – and there’s enough lawn for a footy match.
