Stone country cottage with pool on 28 acres only 25 minutes to CBD!

Set on 11.27 hectares (approximately 28 acres) in an elevated position, is this charming stone cottage.

It's a picturesque drive to the house as you by pass by one of the three dams, up a steep rural driveway through the property peppered with gum trees and up to the stone cottage that is very private. The views from the top of this property are fantastic!!

Inside the house, the slate floors and raked timber ceilings provide the cottage with an authentic natural earthy feel.

The kitchen is functional and there are two open plan style living areas with sliding doors leading outside. There's also a door to a purposely built area for kids with an enclosed fenced, faux grass area. Perfect for letting the kids play outside whilst you have a cuppa!!

In total there are three bedrooms plus a mezzanine loft in the master bedroom and the bathroom is a generous size.

There's a brand new air conditioner with warranty that has just been installed that will easily heat up most of the house.

The owner has not lived there for many years and it is in need of someone to lovingly renovate and bring the home back to a condition it deserves. A lick of paint and a few repairs and this home will be completely transformed!

The property has easy to care for lawns and stone garden beds, front verandah and pergola at the rear, as well as a fenced in ground pool. There's also a levelled tennis court area, it needs some work but it wouldn't take much to bring this back to life.

The area around the house is cleared and opens up nicely with a large gravel parking apron. There's plenty of storage and parking with an oversized double garage providing plenty of extra storage plus there's a huge double carport with a good height clearance for a caravan.

There's holding yards for a pony or alpaca or two and plenty of room for dog runs or chook pens.
Water is taken care off with the in ground concrete water tank plus poly tanks on the shed.
The council have recently inspected the property and the property has a compliance certificate for the house and pool. A building inspection and termite inspection was carried out recently in advance of the sale, saving the purchasers the cost and the worry about buying an old home. A copy is available following inspection.
