Sold 13th October 2019 for $600,000

Rural seclusion , house and chalet close to city.

Look no further if you desire a peaceful, secluded lifestyle in easy access of a buzzing metropolis.

A stylish renovated home is nestled in an wooded acreage with enough cleared land to run a hobby farm. Listen to the sounds of silence, interrupted only by bird sounds and ‘bleet’ of a lamb or ‘moo’ of a cow. Driving along the dirt road one is captivated by the quintessential country home with a picket fence.

” Murrurundi ” is the sort of home where the front door is always open. “Welcome” is exuded as one steps from the deck into the lounge room. Bamboo floors flow through the open plan living/dining/kitchen area, down the hall to 3 bedrooms and a stunning bathroom. Stack back glass doors open the whole living area to the large modern deck. This creates ease for entertaining as one creates in the stylish kitchen or cooks a BBQ.

Whilst there is a fully fenced homestead yard, little children can be even safer as they play on the fully enclosed deck. Sit back and relax quietly by the smoothing sound of the water feature.

The prolific garden watered from the dam which has never run dry is overlooked from the kitchen. Trees and shrubs have been planted for year round colour and fragrance. In springtime enjoy camelias, daphne , bulbs etc. There is even a rare Wollami Pine and a prolific orchard of lemons , limes , mullberies , cherries etc. Being fully fenced protects the garden from wildlife . Raised garden beds are ready to plant veges.

Separate to the main house is the one bedroom Chalet accessed by external stairs. Celery top pine creates an Alpine feel to the cosy abode and light streams through the skylight. The large open plan living room includes a functional kitchenette. The Chalet is ideal for guests or as a teenage retreat. An external toilet in the laundry can be used by guests.

“Potterden” is a huge workshop underneath the Chalet. The options are endless for this area to be used as an art studio craft room or workshop. The current owners have never had to purchase water as the two tanks are adequate. The home is currently tenanted until mid October 2109. With respect for the tenants photos and video are from prior to this tenancy.
