A country homestead to call your own
Be delighted by this stately Victorian-inspired home. Built in a classic style with all the modern luxuries, this homestead property exudes the romance and elegance from a bygone era. Set on just over 6 acres, and with a floor area of 240m2, there is plenty of room for your family and guests as well. The floorplan cleverly separates the bedroom wing from the gorgeous country kitchen and informal living areas, by placing the beautifully elegant reception rooms in the centre of the home.
As you walk up the wide front stairs and on to the wraparound verandah you will picture yourself enjoying an afternoon drink, soaking in the country views of the Mt Wellington foothills.
Step inside to the formal reception rooms, boasting sculpted archways, high ceilings, a wood heater, picture rails and of course rich Jarrah floorboards. Both the living and dining rooms are perfect for entertaining guests, flowing seamlessly from the wraparound verandah through french doors, enticing you from the elegance of indoors to the beauty and space of the outdoors.
The showpiece of this home has to be the country kitchen, and rest assured, the cook in your family will fall in love with it. Bright, white and open, the large kitchen has a butlers sink with a lovely outlook across the property. The cooktop/oven area is the feature of this kitchen. Lending toward an old style country feel, the cooktop and oven are set into a surround with white tiled splashback, and a combination of little drawers and cupboards. This is completed with an overmantel to display your vintage kitchenwares.
There are plenty of cupboards, including overhead glass front display cupboards for your pretty china. The versatile island bench has even more storage space, and prep room for those times when you have extra help in the kitchen. Tucked cleverly adjoining the kitchen, you'll find easy access to the laundry/mudroom area and the fabulous farmstyle pantry cupboard, with room for preserves and bulk grocery items for when your family and friends come to stay at your "homestead".
The kitchen is surrounded by a large family room and a huge informal living area, both warmed in the colder months by a woodheater. Large windows and french doors bring the outdoors in. So much room for games and fun for your family, even room for a billiard table.
The elegance and style of this home continues in the separate bedroom wing. There are four bedrooms, the spacious main with ensuite and walk in robe, the remaining three bedrooms, all with builtin wardrobes, are serviced by the large family bathroom boasting a claw foot bath. Both bathrooms are tiled, the ensuite bathroom has twin vanity sinks, so helpful during the family morning rush hour. Both bathrooms are fully tiled and the showers in each have easy access for those with mobility issues.
Endless possibilities await you outdoors. Do you want chickens and horses? Would you like to start a vege garden or your very own orchard? A play area for the children with swings and slides? Plenty of room for the type of lifestyle you're looking for. There is a double lock up garage and garden shed, and ample parking for visitors. Room for stables and much much more.
Located just 10 minutes drive from all the amenities that Huonville provides, and a 27 minute drive to Hobart, this property has the best of both worlds.
