SET ON 200 acres of gently undulating, grazing land, there are beautiful panoramas in every direction from this home.

The 600 metre driveway leads to the 1930’s era homestead which has been renovated structurally and redecorated to great modern effect. There are 12 foot ceilings, a fresh, neutral paint scheme and art deco inspired lighting.

A great place to sit in the sun and enjoy nature is the huge wood panelled front verandah with its unique balustrade.

Full of character, the country style kitchen has black granite counter tops, a central island bench, and neutral wood veneer cabinetry. Original timber floorboards have been bought back to life here.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the sun filled informal dining room. Double doors lead through to the main living space with a combustion wood fire, split system and there is hydronic heating throughout.

A formal lounge could be used as a second living space or fourth bedroom.

All three bedrooms are roomy, the master significantly larger with great views.

Black and white, the main bathroom has cool subway tiles, pedestal basin and claw foot bath while a second bathroom has a huge dual head shower.

Outdoors is equally special with landscaped gardens and manicured grounds feed by tank water. To the side a paved alfresco area is a great place to entertain.

Further afield there are four dams, and around 80 acres of mature Blue Gums to be harvested from 2022.

On town water, the property has a huge shed with concrete floor, industrial lighting and skylights and another shearing shed.
