Ready to make dreams of a country lifestyle a reality, this excellent homestead sits on about 8.09 hectares of fertile soil, with three dams and good fencing on board.

The house has a fab as-new kitchen, with its floorboards flowing through to the adjoining casual meals and sitting areas, the latter with an inset wood heater, split-system and ceiling fan.

A stack of white cupboards and pot drawers accompany a giant timber-topped island bench and glass splashbacks in the kitchen. It also has a walk-in pantry, and wall oven, electric cooktop and concealed dishwasher.

An open carpeted step-down lounge-dining room neighbours the kitchen and has cedar-framed windows (as all through) providing appealing views.

The four newly carpeted fitted bedrooms are large enough for king beds and share a spacious renovated bathroom with separate tub and shower.

The laundry/mudroom includes a shower and second toilet.

Lifestyle treats step it up outside, where a tennis court guarantees family fun, and a period-style gazebo in the grounds invites a cuppa and read of the newspaper in seclusion. A deep wraparound verandah provides other spots to chase or avoid the sun, and to soak up the peace and quiet of rural living in a pretty setting.

If a pony or two is on the wish list, there are stables, a tack room and a round yard ready and waiting. One of the dams has an arched timber bridge to a treed island – perhaps a place from which to do a bit of bird watching or feed the visiting ducks.

Solar panels and big water tanks are other inclusions at a property that’s within a four-minute car trip of the heart of town.
