Unique home and rural lifestyle

7 acres of land - year round Summer grass - with an exceptional home of well over 300sqm of living and some 500sqm under the roof! In addition to the house there is a massive gabled alfresco/verandah and a very high car port. A truly unique design incorporating an 'Olde English Pub' with its own beer garden in its design. This is no ordinary home!
Approaching the home by way of a very long driveway the lushness of the land is obvious immediately. A central lake gives sanctuary to wild ducks and other water birds - the trees are tall and luxurious.
As you step from the front verandah of this magnificent home you are welcomed by the wide entry hall to the right of which is the Powder Room and, to the left, double doors gain entry to the Olde English Pub Lounge with gas fire and fully equipped bar for serious entertaining. The walls are panelled, lighting subdued and the beautiful bar is Jarrah with a granite serving bench and mirrored shelving. No pub would be complete without its beer garden which is accessed by double doors beside the fireplace - this garden is a walled area with a gazebo and a spa creating a perfect ambience for a sunny afternoon. More double doors lead from the pub to the open plan Meals and Family area overseen by the large Kitchen with stone bench tops, loads of storage and a mega-pantry. From this area you access the Conservatory or sunken Games room which has bay windows allowing lots of light and is a lovely spot overlooking the grounds, it also has a viewing window from the interior wall. The same area gives you access to the sunken Home Theatre where you can enjoy the full cinema experience.
The large Master Suite is carpeted, has its own walk-in-robe and bathroom ensuite with a double shower and door to the Powder Room. Beside the main bedroom is a room used as an office but could easily be a Nursery or extra bedroom, the view from here to the lake is particularly pleasing. Bedrooms 2 & 3 are at the other end of the house and are spacious with a shared semi-ensuite bathroom. A 'retreat' is attached to Bedroom 2 but this could give options for teenagers, extended family or simply another bedroom. These three rooms all have wood look flooring. A roomy walk-in linen storage area is accessed from the hallway.
Coming back to the Beer Garden, it is North facing and has a gazebo and a barbecue and room for table and chairs. On the Southern side of the house is a huge gabled patio and verandah giving you lots of choices depending on the weather, there are speakers out here to play your music while relaxing.
Three water tanks: two catching water from the house are 95,000l and 45,000l while the third is 4,500l being fed off the workshop roof. This workshop is 6 X 9m with a concrete floor and 3 phase power. The machinery shed is 9 X 9m with a roadbase floor and no power.
There are many extras to tell you about, firstly the reverse Cycle ducted air conditioning and double insulation - sisalation to the roof plus blow-in insulation in the ceiling. Then the bore which has a 3 phase submersible pump and feeds the reticulation around the home - the paddocks don't need it as they are naturally green all year. The 12 large solar panels with a 3Kw inverter takes care of electricity bills and there is no charge for the water. Even the EcoMax sewerage system has an alarm to notify you of any attention needed. Lastly a chook pen, vegie gardens and the pure peace of a rural lifestyle - yet just minutes from a train station, schools and shops.
Be quick to view and buy this wonderful property.
