If you waved your magic wand and created your dream home in the country, this prettiest of country cottages could well appear.
It has the most desirable dollops of charm and a flexible floor plan most would envy, as the deceptive space draws you into the lovely ambiance, and showcases the amazing views out of every window. The shiny slate floors, soaring ceilings and contemporary decor in the main living space hint at the stunning renovation that has taken place here.
The kitchen is a beautiful and workable space with dramatic red bench-tops, tiles imported from Tunisia and Blanco appliances. There are sliding doors from here which open to the secure fenced yard suitable for kids, dogs and chooks, or even a kitchen garden!
The spacious master suite has an enormous en suite, with a wide hand basin and bench-top placed before you enter the wet-room; this is some en suite! There are two built-in wardrobes and gorgeous views through the French windows.
Designed by the owner to be so energy efficient you will rarely see a bill. Energy efficiency is achieved by the use of insulation in the walls and ceilings, a 2.6kw solar power system, solar hot water and a beautiful Lopi wood heater that keeps the entire home toasty warm in winter.There is also split system heating and cooling should it be required. There are enough water tanks to afford the luxury of some green grass and to keep all those fruit trees thriving, with a dam and water bore as back up.
Set on five acres, with many established fruit and nut trees including avocado, pistachio, chestnut, pomegranate, mulberry and citrus varieties; the grounds really are as amazing as the home. You will notice the feature rock wall and beautiful landscaping. You will also notice the absence of high maintenance garden beds! There are plenty of spaces to explore here. From the rock wall and grassed area adjoining the orchard, to the rock lined creek bed, the meandering 200 meter driveway, the olive grove, the kids play space. Another bonus is the leisurely ten minute stroll through the forest that will bring you to the stunning Lynnevale winery for a glass of their sparkling shiraz!
With a mob of Kangaroos for neighbours, and their early morning visits a ritual, there is a calmness here that the owner says you can feel as soon as you turn into the olive tree-lined drive. It's hard to believe that it is less than a 10 minute drive to the centre of Bendigo.
