Even the drive up to this home is unusual. Old trees line the drive, with a few interesting boulders splattered around for extra artistic impact.
Drive past the side of the home towards the sheds and enter from the lovely back patio overlooking the gardens. There are two doors leading inside. The first leads to a mudroom cum laundry – old-style tiles, with a shower and basin and a separate toilet. This is the only part of the home that could do with an update, the rest has all been done.
A glass sliding door off the patio leads directly to a spacious landing with the staircase on the left and the kitchen, dining room and lounge leading off to the right. This area is currently used as a spare bedroom and office, but could easily convert into another lounge/library/study or whatever extra space you might require. A Baker’s oven (wood fire with cooking facilities) easily keeps the whole house warm during winter.
The kitchen is neat and boasts a dishwasher as well as a 2-year-old, free-standing electrical oven with a gas hob. A wall of built-in cupboards, as well as under-counter cupboards, takes care of all your storage needs while the island bench provides extra countertop space for home chefs.
The dining area is open plan to the kitchen with lots of light entering from large windows looking out to the paved, front patio. A reverse cycle air conditioner services the kitchen/dining and lounge area.
A good size, light and bright lounge also have direct access to the front patio.
Upstairs is really lovely with its high ceilings, spacious rooms and big windows, lending it a very European feel.
My favourite bedroom is the smallest – a king single, immediately to the right of the landing with its charming roof window and outlook over the back garden. Children will love this “Pixie Room”.
The gorgeous, brand new bathroom with a huge shower, toilet and basin is set between the Pixie room and the green and white room at the end of this corridor. It’s a huge room looking out to the back and side of the home and has the chimney from the Bakers Oven extending through, so will be snugly warm in winter.
To the left of the upstairs landing is a walk-in linen room with 2 more bedrooms at the far end. The master bedroom to the left is king size with a wall of built-in cupboards and a door opening out to the front balcony. Even though there are lots of windows, this home is screened from the neighbours by trees, so completely private. The trees also buffer most of the traffic noise from Chester Pass Road.
Next door is the fourth bedroom/2nd lounge with built-in cupboards. It is queen-sized and shares the balcony with the master bedroom.
There are two main sheds on this property, both concreted and powered. There is also a roofed shed between these for extra storage, while a few small sheds are scattered throughout the gardens. I classified the garaging as 5, but it can be more depending on what you put in the sheds.
I mentioned above that the garden is biodynamic. Most of us know what organic gardening is – the practice of producing food without the use of pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified organisms (GMO’s). “Biodynamic Farming is a step above organic farming by working with the “life force” of Mother Nature to heal the earth and grow nutrient-dense foods without the use of chemicals. It’s a holistic approach that combines the connection between the farmer, soil, plants, animals and the cosmos. Biodynamics, in theory, creates an environment so full of vitality that plants and animals are better equipped to protect themselves from disease and predatory insects.”
In this magical garden, you will find incredibly healthy mulberries, apricots, figs, lemons, almonds, a variety of berries, apples, peaches, avocados, limes, pomegranates, grapes and strawberries – to name just a few. There is also a large variety of vegetables, scented roses and bee and butterfly attracting shrubs and flowers.
