Lifestyle farmlets such as this are few and far between! Just 5 minutes along sealed roads from the township of Mirboo North, this totally private property of approximately 13 acres on two titles plus a government road lease, is sure to please. Apart from the opportunity to run some horses or graze cattle or sheep, in the words of the owner, "A highlight of living here is the wildlife, especially the birdlife."
A circular driveway leads up to the delightful, well maintained 3 bedroom homestead. Constructed out of mudbrick and rustic radial sawn timber, it has been sited for sunny northerly orientation of main rooms. Internally, features are many: beautiful entry door with leadlight surrounds recycled power poles, mud brick feature walls, clerestory windows, cathederal ceilings with timber lining and lush 'garden window'views in most rooms. Spacious open plan living includes a kitchen with new appliances, beautiful timber benchtops and breakfast bar, a choice of two lounge areas and generous dining area with access straight out to numerous outdoor living options. An extremely efficient solid fuel heater warms the whole home, while a large split-system provides an instant heating/cooling option.
Bedrooms are generous, all with plenty of built-in-robe storage and restful garden views. The laundry and bathroom are spacious too, the bathroom featuring a new antique- style vanity, bath and separate shower.
The home is well sheltered as it is situated amongst the most beautiful of cottage gardens, a blend of native and deciduous trees dotted around the house gardens. There is also a productive orchard. Wrens, rosellas, kookaburras and a host of birds visit the garden regularly, a joy to watch. Approximately 3 acres is well fenced into 8 paddocks, while another 10 acres (approx.) has been retained as bushland, a haven for wildlife and indigenous plants (orchids included.) Clean paddocks with rich red fertile soils are perfect too for vegetable growing.
A carport is under the house roofline, while a large machinery shed with power provides more parking or storage. A lock up steel garage divided into several compartments has power, concrete, brick and tiled floors and is currently used for additional accomodation and storage. Other possibilities for this shed include home business, teenager retreat, studio and workshop. There are two more small sheds, plenty of tank water and a shared dam for livestock. This much loved property is an opportunity waiting for those wanting a private country lifestyle on low maintenance, easily managed acreage. Inspection highly recommended as this is priced to sell!
