UNDER OFFER - Quintessential Dreamlike Hinterland Home
Rarely does a property this picturesque and unique come to market that has been so lovingly restored to create a contemporary and functional family home. The original Chapel structure was built by the community at the turn of the 20th century approximately 120 years ago. Built from solid rosewood and teak, the considered renovations have maintained the integrity and essence of the original design. This is a magnificent example of hardwood craftsmanship and joinery; this property is truly special. The gorgeous hinterland views complete a very desirable and attractive home.
Immediately greeted by the expansive timber deck that wraps around majority of the home, it is clear that integrating outdoor living was a key factor in the renovation. The space beckons you to sit and enjoy the rural surrounds. Upon entering, the original design features dazzle with pointed arch windows and door-frames, hardwood timber floors, stained glass, French doors, slatted-timber walls, fabulous large rooms and 'cathedral' like ceilings, the list goes on.
The light-filled living area features a designer wood-burning fireplace that funnels the warmth throughout the whole home. The solar passive and natural air flow of the internal spaces ensure easy heating and cooling for year round comfort.
The layout is versatile and functional with 4 generous bedrooms. The lower-level bedrooms offer private access to the deck and the main bedroom has an ensuite. The first-floor bedrooms share a large landing that can be used as a relaxing living space, ideal for escaping the activity and life below. The bathrooms have been finished with quality copper fixtures, decorative tiles and antique cabinetry.
Within the easy care, 1-acre grounds you will find maintained and established gardens, hardwood raised vegetable beds and a mature fruit orchard. This truly is natural country living at its finest!
