Wonderful and unique family home (380sqm approx.) with 3 acres of magical gardens, paddock and outbuildings.

Built 30 years ago in the genre of a traditional gentleman’s home more typical of the 1800’s, it has been finished to a particularly high standard throughout.  This brings with it the enormous advantage of having the style and character of a period house with all modern conveniences for 21st century

living including a ‘B’ energy rating which makes for an especially comfortable home, both energy efficient and very economic to run.

The bright light filled accommodation, offers generous proportions with its high ceilings and many period features. It extends to approximately 380sqm and includes a full master suite, 4 further double bedrooms, open plan mezzanine area, 4 fine reception rooms and a large airy kitchen with feature lofted ceiling.   

Outside there is a separate paddock with two loose boxes, a purpose built log cabin currently in use as a gym and a separate studio work shop with lots of options for alternative uses. Finally, at the entrance to the property stands the original cottage belonging to the site which has not been inhabited for many years but could possibly, subject to the necessary planning, be repurposed and brought back to life!
