North facing with glorious garden vistas from every room, this modest one-owner brick home has evolved from a bush block over 40 years ago to its present-day splendour. Framed by nature's beauty, this labour of love’s stunning gardens (many which started as seedlings) showcase magnificent maples, copper beech, elms, ornamental pear and hills classics such as vibrant camelias. The perfect symphony of beauty, serenity and convenience, the home is unpretentious yet homely and being a short meander from the village means you can enjoy boutique shops, chic cafes and the local primary school as much as the local forest walking trails.
A skylit kitchen features an original slow combustion wood stove and an electric upright along with a timber island bench. Exposed brick and timber lined walls adds a rustic touch to this space that encompasses a bright casual meals zone.
The rustic theme continues into the lounge/dining where you can relax by the intimate gas log fire where garden gazing can accompany your downtime and there’s room for families to gather and dine.
Four bedrooms flow from a private hallway culminating in a lavish master with ensuite and sliding doors to the garden. A skylit family bathroom features timber vanity, separate bath and shower.
A charming, covered patio flows from the back of the house perfect for all-season alfresco dining and entertaining against a magical garden setting.
Gardens unfold from the patio starting with a blanket of lush lawn perfect for the kids and magical spaces for hide and seek, daydreaming or pottering including a stone garden seat, a bridge, two ponds and a vine-clad arbor. A bushland backdrop creates a distinct sense of privacy and seclusion.
