SOLD $985,000


Private, secluded and nicely set back from the road, this generously proportioned, four year old, 3 bedroom plus large study/4th bedroom residence within an idyllic setting has something to offer all members of the family. The inviting home offers an abundance of space within its very generous floor plan which comprises family room/dining/modern country style kitchen with stone bench tops, big pantry and lovely view to the dam from the kitchen sink; a study and another living room/games room which opens out to the back deck where you can enjoy the vista whilst watching the kids yabbying in the picturesque dam. The generous master bedroom has a walk-in robe and ensuite with a huge shower, whilst the other bedrooms have built-in robes. The floor plan also includes the marvellous family bathroom, powder room; a large laundry/mud room and separate toilet; and you will love the space in the walk-in linen/storage room and bonus ceiling storage space. As well, the separate, original cottage in need of refurbishment would make a wonderful studio or teenage retreat.

The home has all the sustainable features you would want: double glazing, wall and ceiling insulation, 3.5KW solar power, reverse cycle heating and cooling; bamboo timber floors, and rich soils to sustain a bountiful vegetable crop for a healthy lifestyle. The rambling garden offers many spaces for children to play and hide, especially the hidden green patch which would be ideal for a family game of cricket. The large colorbond shed with remote controlled sliding door would ideally suit the tradesman, hobbyist, or perhaps a store for boat, caravan or vintage cars. Furthermore, there is excellent external under-house storage for a range of mowers and associated garden tools.

The comfortable and picturesque family property is sure to appeal to those cherishing the good life in the magical Macedon Ranges yet still within a very commutable drive to the CBD and airport. The village, rail, and schools are just a short drive away.

This property is offered for sale in conjunction with RT Edgar.
