Enter through the formal entrance with the stained glass 'Kookaburra' door and you will immediately get to see the amazing textures of the unique sandstone feature walls that are a standout in the main areas of the home. This along with the slate floors and painted walls of soft palettes of cream, give the home a warm earthy feel yet also a retro vibe about it.
There is a formal carpeted lounge room that is currently used as a dining room that opens onto the family/meals area and a huge open plan timber kitchen that boasts plenty of cupboards, breakfast bar area, large fridge space and built in oven, microwave and dishwasher.
There are four bedrooms in the main house, the master bedroom is very spacious and features a walk through robe to the timber panelled ensuite. There are also built ins in all of the other bedrooms.
Heating and cooling is taken care of with a large timber slow combustion heater, ceiling fans in the family room and master bedroom and an evaporative ducted cooling system installed a few years ago. The wrap around verandahs also help keep the home lovely and cool in Summer.
