huff n puff cottage.
This iconic storybook home set on a hilltop below Gunners Quoin is quite extraordinary. A wonderful lifestyle property with multiple living areas, ample accommodation and terrific outbuildings and infrastructure on approx. 5 acres with expansive views across the Derwent River and rural surrounds.
A gravel driveway leads to a large shed and garage at the rear of the home with adjoining double carport. The main entry and foyer opens to the central living area which is a warm light filled space with stunning Tas Oak floors, quality Huon Pine and granite kitchen with a northerly aspect for all day sun. The kitchen is well appointed with Electrolux wall oven, Fisher & Paykel gas cooktops, range hood and a Bosch dishwasher. The living area flows seamlessly to a remarkable indoor / outdoor lounge and BBQ area with bi-fold doors opening to the stunning river views, ideal for entertaining family and friends or alfresco dining. The impressive BBQ kitchen is included in the sale and both indoor and outdoor areas feature Saxon wood heaters for comfort and ambience, whilst there are also ceiling heaters in the outdoor area and reverse cycle heat pumps inside the home.
Adjoining the living area is a separate study or storage room, as well as a larger rumpus room or dedicated home office, with separate bedroom and ensuite bathroom in a beautiful French theme. This section of the home is highly versatile and ideal for visiting family or guest accommodation, or as a teenage retreat. Also on the lower level is a lovely main bedroom with WIR and sleek ensuite bathroom, with French doors opening to a private deck with inbuilt hot tub overlooking the river below.
On the upper level of the home are no less than four further bedrooms, all with built-in robes and 3 with terrific elevated views, with a central lounge area and family bathroom. The home also has a separate laundry and separate WC, making 4 in total. All carpeted areas of the home have been laid with brand new carpet, and the residence is extremely energy efficient with a 5kW solar system, a large capacity heat pump hot water system and efficient heat pumps for heating and cooling.
The grounds surrounding the home are incredibly well kept with some lovely established trees and gardens, and there is also a wonderful bird aviary and vegie gardens, a chook pen and alpaca shelter, all with excellent services. The large shed and garage has a terrific workshop and plenty of room for mechanical and other work. Certainly one of the most remarkable homes in the area and a wonderful lifestyle property in which to raise the growing family.
