Architectural 2 storey stone residence.

When attention to detail matters… Stunning stone works, captivating gardens and a vine-covered terrace form part of the story surrounding this historic residence amid ½ an acre of picturesque grounds.

Incorporating a significant original township dwelling, the authentic restoration of the 1850's stone cottage connects with an extensive architectural stone addition creating a seamless blend of old with new. Graciously spread over 300sqm the residence encompasses north facing living and provides abundant room for the growing family.

Custom made, the Sheoak country kitchen provides stainless steel benchtops, European appliances and stone flooring. Avid wine collectors may find the adjoining underground cellar an intriguing proposition. Dry and fully restored it awaits your treasured collection. A connecting gallery with floor to ceiling glass and rock maple parquetry extends into a spacious north facing main lounge. The passive solar design ensures year-round comfort and a view that calms the soul.

Upstairs you will find a peaceful retreat that is your new master suite enjoying extended garden views through triple French windows. It's the ideal spot to relax and unwind away from the ground level of family life. In total, there are 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and 3 living rooms one of which is the ultimate work from home office. With 52sqm of operational space, this area is framed by porcelain flooring, exposed beams and garden views via double French doors to the terrace. A sublime part of the residence guaranteed to produce some of your best work.

Framed by a Georgian façade, the 1850's cottage provides a space independent of the main 2 storey home. 2.9m ceilings feature, there is a spacious bedroom, contemporary bathroom and large wood heated lounge. Street frontage may also present a work from home opportunity or quaint B&B proposition.
