PRIVATE & PEACEFUL
There are pleasant bushland views from this character home among the gums and just a short distance from surf beaches and bay-side walking trails.
The tranquil, multi-level timber home is privately located with an established, easy care garden surrounding and a versatile floor plan within.
A long driveway wends down through the trees to a good sized and level parking area with a nearby steel garden shed and a detached cedar studio or sleep-out.
The nearby pine-lined house has a multi-angled roofline that enhances its charm and a north facing, full-width sundeck with a broader entertaining at one end.
There is a leafy front entrance with timber decking to a small foyer off which is a bedroom with a sliding door to the deck.
Next is a cosy, carpeted lounge with a freestanding barrel woodheater and a three-facet dining bay. This living area also has exposed ceiling beams and deck access.
Adjoining is a step-up revamped kitchen with a high raked ceiling, a dual sink and a Fisher and Paykel electric stove, easy close drawers, twin easy-lift appliance cupboards and a side door to a landing with steps down to the grounds and a nearby barbecue deck with a pergola and overlooking a large frog pond.
A step up from the kitchen is a laundry niche and then a compact bathroom with a corner spa with a shower over, a basin, a toilet and also linking with another bedroom with a raked ceiling and skylight.
A solid pine staircase leads up to a double garret bedroom with an attic window providing ample natural light.
Although the property is mostly peaceful native bushland, there is enough level land to run horses and there's easy access to the Tangara riding trail.
The shops, school, medical services and restaurants at Lauderdale are about a 10 minute drive away while the beaches, gold course and boat ramp at South Arm are even less distance away. There's also metro and school bus services, including that for the highly regarded South Arm Primary School.
