A genuine sense of "something special awaits you" as you're entering the driveway of this unique and immaculately maintained property.
With beautiful foliage either side from lines of well placed golden and claret ash trees that guide you all the way down the bitumen drive to provide a greeting that many will envy.
The long entrance gives you a tantalising taste of what’s to come with lush gardens, a variety of well selected trees, all beautifully matched to this stunning weatherboard home.
The picturesque gardens are perfectly suited for weddings, general entertaining or for your own personal satisfaction. Surrounding the home and gardens are four separate, fully fenced paddocks with a bore servicing all areas for added convenience.
A large 15x10.5-metre shed located on the west side of the property offers loads of storage space with the added bonus of also being fully self contained. Ideal for guest accommodation or even Airbnb with a kitchen, living area, bedroom and bathroom with shower.
The home itself is over 100 years old and was originally located west of Hamilton before being relocated and given a new lease on life only 12 years ago. No stone was left unturned throughout the rebuild process, being re-stumped with concrete piers, new hardwood floorboards to replace the original Baltic pine boards, a majority of the original timber framework was retained, however new timber framework was needed to increase the home's size.
The weatherboard construction has been meticulously maintained, which is a theme that continues throughout the whole property, being a credit to the owners and the pride in their home is clear to see.
The formal living room has east-facing windows for warmth of the morning sun, a large wood heater for added charm, well placed to keep your whole home warm throughout winter and access through to the beautiful verandah which wraps around the front of this delightful property.
The large, modern kitchen with open-plan dining overlooking a south-facing rear yard, with a split-system installed for convenience and immediate heating or cooling.
The views of these amazing gardens are just one of the highlights of the large master bedroom, providing the perfect backdrop as you gaze out through a feature bay window. Quality carpet and carefully chosen colour tones finish the room off well.
All bedrooms are generously sized with built-in robes and also feature quality carpet for added comfort and warmth.
The generous room sizes continue with the main bathroom a more than comfortable size and well finished. The 11.5-foot ceilings only adds to the sense of space, with Tassie oak hardwood floor boards throughout all rooms with the exception of the living room and bedrooms.
Your entertaining is well covered by a super spacious alfresco area, sheltered and offers garden views to both the North and South. A large single garage provides the shelter from the West, electric roller door, workshop space and toilet.
A rare property, combining history, modern amenities, country charm, absolutely stunning gardens, 3.26 acres of flat land and all on the fringe of town. At only just over 10 minutes from Warrnambool, a similar distance to historic Port Fairy and only seven minutes to one of the best swimming beaches the South West has to offer.
