exciting home with chalet and stables.
This wonderfully unique homestead on a large land parcel of approx. 3.51 acres is a very special property indeed. An original farmhouse of the late 1800s, since extended and updated to accommodate a family, and now with a truly inspired chalet or cottage, a separate home office or workshop, excellent horse stables, a full size tennis court and more.
The main house is a charming residence with more than enough room for the growing family. Spacious living areas with open plan kitchen and dining at front, a large adjoining lounge and a versatile second lounge or rumpus room down the hall. The kitchen is well appointed and enjoys a northerly aspect for all day sun, with access to a sunny paved courtyard for outdoor entertaining. There are four comfortable bedrooms, two of which share a tidy ensuite bathroom and one of these with an adjoining study. The light filled family bathroom was well ahead of it’s time, with luxury corner spa bath against a large bay window, plus a separate shower and vanity. There is also a separate laundry and WC.
Not far from the house is the more recently constructed chalet, a remarkable design with natural timber exterior and stylish modern interiors, completely off the grid with specialised solar system and battery storage. The open plan layout has a central bedroom with adjoining lounge and kitchen/dining areas, all with large windows and sliding doors overlooking the peaceful acreage grounds below. The chalet is fitted with a stunning bamboo floor, and features a very sleek kitchen with bamboo bench top, an impressive modern bathroom, cast-iron wood heater and full wrap around deck. There is an easy passageway for separate access off Nowra Road and the property would be very popular as an AirBNB or short term accommodation, let alone a beautiful guest house or home for elderly parents.
In addition to the main house and chalet, there is a terrific separate studio or workshop, which could just as easily be used as a dedicated home office. A highly versatile space with adjoining storage room. The property is also perfect for horse enthusiasts with professionally fitted horse stables and plenty of paddock room, with a current agistment in place (to be continued if desired). There is also an impressive full sized tennis court, the surface needing some attention but with excellent existing fencing and lighting. Around the grounds there is also a large variety of fruit trees, a small olive plantation, a grape vineyard, vegie patch and nursery. The property is also situated within walking distance to beautiful Roches Beach and a short commute to local shops and schools.
This extraordinary acreage certainly needs to be seen to appreciate it’s many and varied elements. Certainly one of the most remarkable properties we have seen in the area, representing a very rare and wonderful lifestyle opportunity for a new family.
