A sweeping driveway, at the bowl of a private court location, guides you to a beautiful mudbrick farmhouse at the heart of a property that packs a punch. 6 fully equipped horse paddocks just a picturesque 7-minute ride to the arenas and cross country jumps at the Cockatoo Pony Club. Living here can be as energetic or as laid back as you like. Home-laid eggs for breakfast on the deck overlooking the mature orchard after a meditation session or take a relaxing trail ride along the horse trails of nearby Paternoster Road.
The Knox-esque house design uses reclaimed timber and church leadlight windows that add endless character and charm to this spacious home. The dormer window along the centre of the roof ensures light in every room. Each window is a feature in itself even before you look through them. The current set up is as a dual-living with a 2 bedroom fully self-contained flat - lending itself to older parents and equally suited to a twenty-something or two, as a lodgement or a bed and breakfast.
The Main House
The vast blackwood kitchen compliments slate-flooring in the kitchen and meals area. A conventional oven and stove-top alongside an impressive standalone Vulcan wood-fired stove. The kitchen opens into the mudroom/laundry which has space for all of your boots and saddles - the garage, sheds, and yards await you beyond. Back on the other side of the meals area there is a powder room which also serves as a semi-ensuite for bedroom 4.
Rustic balustrades on the spotted gum hardwood floors divide the open plan living. With a wood fire heater at one end and an open fire at the other and french doors in the middle, your all-season comfort is assured. There are 4 bedrooms in this part of the home. 3 have built-in robes and the master enjoys an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. The light and bright main bathroom delights with its naturalistic stone setting.
The Granny Flat
Entirely self-contained with no steps or stairs and private access through a double leadlight door. It is a charming, private and comfortable space with two bedrooms; one with a large bay window. Both bedrooms have ensuites and walk-in-robes.
Outside for entertaining, you can choose between the back veranda with fire-pit, the spacious north facing front entertaining deck or the bonfire area. The horses have a host of features to enjoy: An all-weather round yard, feed and tack room, hitching rail, large open twin paddock shelter with side hay storage, small closed stable, open stable/hay storage, pony paddock/sickbay, wash bay, water trough and taps in each paddock, 3 gate paddock flow for pasture management, plus a host of other amenities.
Ensure your serenity by visiting this outstanding property.
