About this listing
Imagine living in an idyllic setting of gentle lawns, framed by wide floral borders, protective covenanted wetlands and a charming single level living home. Enjoy this private peaceful haven in sought after heartland Karaka. Seven years ago our current owners built their rustic home with a flexible floorplan, but specific to family in residence at the time. Besides the hub of the home with open plan living and two bedrooms, they created two attached self contained studios and two double garages. The customised east and west wing were ideal for their teens, and over time an elderly grandma, but now our sellers are "empty nesters" they have considered future options for Bed and Breakfast paying guests. With welcoming natural exterior and polished concrete floors throughout, it's easy living. Bespoke iron detailing in floors and character doors adds to the quirkiness of design by their favourite architect Jann Hurley. So enamoured by her flair, our owners have started a new building project next door to remain in the area they love. Entertaining in such a tranquil garden setting is easy, with gas cooking and a convenient shelved scullery to hide away the kitchen appliances or showcase preserves. Cooking for a crowd of friends enjoying the alfresco courtyard all year round is a favourite pastime here. Christmas in Karaka put this home on the map when locals gathered for seasonal food, wine and conviviality round the BBQ, brazier and wine barrels in true neighbourly style. Reclaim that childhood tradition of gathering fresh eggs and picking fruit from the orchard. Gazing over the herb gardens and admiring your vege patch will add to the appeal, relaxing after dinner watching the sun go down. Surrounding fenced fields will cater for exuberant pet dogs or a small pony, and are great for entertaining children, as there's always the promise of a warm outside shower. The high studded barn of 54m² is currently home to classic cars, but could equally house a camper, boat, or commercial business supplies.
