One of the most charming and picturesque properties you will see this year, the impeccably presented cottage (circa 1860) just has to be seen to be appreciated.

With a spectacular garden setting offering approx 48 fruit trees and extensive vegetable collection along with established trees, this labour of love creates privacy and numerous spaces to relax or entertain outdoors.

Immediately you will be impressed by the classic cottage features including the limestone and brick quoin work, bull nose verandah, timber window and doors and cement verandah.

The home itself offers three bedrooms, the master with walk-in robe and bathroom access with claw foot bath and separate toilet. The cosy front lounge room has a fireplace while the open plan family and kitchen area has a combustion heater and split system reverse cycle air conditioning.

The delightful country style kitchen includes timber cupboards and bench tops, dishwasher, wall oven and grill and fantastic butler’s pantry.

There is also a huge underground cellar, versatile enough to be a studio, storage room or much more.

While the home is impeccable, the rest of the property is equally as impressive, starting with the rear deck overlooking the large pond, manicured lawns and of course, spectacular gardens.

There are expansive chook yard, with chooks included, garden shed and the “Old Dairy”, a brilliant workshop with pit, stereo and fridge.

There is more garaging with high clearance and a rustic outdoor entertaining area with central fire pit.
