About this listing

Yearning for that classic stone home filled with charm on a few acres in the country? Dreaming of mature gardens, old roses, deciduous color, and a prolific fruit orchard? Here it is, your slice of rural living and at an affordable price!

Character oozes from this earthy home - it may have you at hello. You will find high ceilings with pressed metal finishes, feature fire places and solid timber doors. Pride of place is taken by the Stanley wood heater in a country themed blackwood kitchen with leadlight finishes. Cook up a storm and feed those you love in the adjoining dining room that overlooks the rear gardens.

Sleep soundly inside solid stone walls. Choose from 3 spacious bedrooms, abundant storage options and a delightful bathroom with terracotta floors. Even the laundry has a cute factor housed in separate vine draped building with a second modern bathroom.

Collect wood from your farm to stoke the wood heater this winter. It may be a focal point in your lounge watching those flames. Or it might be gazing through your picture window to admire the heritage roses. A wide rear verandah will see the dogs sprawled out soaking up the sunshine while the family run around the lawn beneath the gracious shade that only an old garden provides.

Experts say that the best gardens have rooms and this one fits the bill with winding paths leading to hidden corners. Along the way pick fresh, seasonal fruit from your own back yard. The list is extensive and includes varieties old and new.

Gently sloping countryside surrounds this lovely home that is dotted with a few ancient gum trees. It's perfectly suited to all livestock especially horses. Revegetated areas provide beauty and natural habitat for wildlife and the ponies have stables to keep them warm in the winter. Other improvements include a wood shed, chook house with yard, brick garage and the original smokehouse.

An old poem says there is a reason, a season, and a lifetime for some things. Whatever is calling you here, follow it. You will not be disappointed.
