Homestead and Garden:-
The Bungalow homestead is truly special; a family house normally found on a large pastoral holding.

Evaporative cooling is ducted throughout the home and many rooms enjoy overhead fans. The master bedroom has a large ensuite bathroom with spa bath, and three other large king sized bedrooms access the verandah by French doors. The house is of Federation design and delights in many large fireplaces, high ceilings, moulded architraves and a gorgeous 50 x 8 foot central hallway. The country style eat-in kitchen is worthy of a television studio cooking show and also boasts a large dining area, as well as a walk-in pantry and freestanding island bench. There is a separate office off the large sunroom.
A double carport is on the south eastern end of the homestead and leads onto a central courtyard.
12 foot verandahs grace the eastern and northern sides of the home overlooking masses of mature garden and lawn.
The easy care garden of expansive plantings, lawns and bordered driveway is designed to be uncluttered and focuses on the surrounding long views and trees. It has been maintained for many years by a well-known local and experienced gardener.
One paddock fronting Western Avenue is heavily planted with fully matured specimen trees dating from the 1920's, as found in an Arboretum.
A former art studio set up by the current owners and has now been converted into a comfortable 2 bedroom guest cottage. Currently leased, it could either be an investment or somewhere for the extended family.
