About this listing
Seven years ago, our charming hosts crafted their ideal rustic clad house with extended family and visitors in mind. With two self-contained studios attached to the hub of the house, there are flexible floorplan options for a homestay retreat, Air B & B or even elderly relatives or growing teenagers.
Their award winning architect (Jann Hurley) worked to the exciting brief creating one level living of 275m² with all home comforts. Polished concrete floors, added scullery, double glazing , open plan living to bifold doors, two double garages, storage galore and a detached high studded barn to name but a few. Nestled on just under two acres in heartland Karaka, weekend gardeners, car enthusiasts and hobby farmers can do more than dream.
Four small paddocks allow for a few sheep, llama or small pony perhaps for the children, alongside the covenanted private wetland. Free ranging chickens, a productive orchard and thriving herb and vege garden will appeal to those who love tempting guests with their culinary skills. Growing food sustainably could be the new lifestyle decision.
Alfresco dining over 80m² of paved courtyard offers all year entertaining just off the kitchen, but close enough to the herbaceous garden and within easy reach of gentle lawns and gardens resplendent in seasonal colour.
Our owners have a new building project to tackle but love the area and will relocate close by.
