(Cudlee Creek). 6.174Ha (15 acres) Beautiful and secluded, rural, semi bushland setting with immaculate home gardens, paddocks for horses/cattle and planted timbers. Purposefully designed large and elegant formal home that is quality appointed. Separate equipped worker’s accommodation hut / workshop and an abundance of shedding, all serviced by a superb bore.
LAND: 6.174Ha (15 acres) An immaculate property that provides both a wonderful lifestyle opportunity and a rural hills escape, set in a beautiful and secluded location. Positioned at the end of a quiet ‘no through’ country road, the property is only 5 minutes from the city side of Lobethal and a picturesque drive to the metro area; therefore making it close to town facilities yet a world away from the stresses of a busy life. The home gardens are well cared for and easily maintained with gently contoured lawns, seasonal colouring, extensive hedges and screening plants with brick retaining walls that match with that of the home. The majority of the acreage is a combination of cleared grazing sections and a beautiful bushland setting. Currently, sheep graze the paddocks, while the resident kangaroos that appear around dusk inhabit the natural timber areas which include wattles and, of course, the stringy bark gums which provide a firewood supply for the home. Throughout all this, a number of walking and riding trails are prominent. The property incorporates an outstanding bore which has a Grundfos SP 2.2kw pump providing 4,000 LPH @ 900ppm with a recent upgrading and this services the garden’s automatic irrigation system and the stock troughs.
RESIDENCE: Completed in 1990, the impressive nature of this double brick, split level home is evident immediately. Internally, the home has 10’ ceilings and is elegantly appointed. From the entrance, a long gallery walkway, with a timber balustrade, overlooks the massive, formal living area. This magnificent room has quality features including a huge, open, corner fire place with Kanmantoo Stone at one end and a new, warming, slow combustion heater at the other. Twin ceiling roses enhance the formal nature of this room which faces west and has a gorgeous outlook through two sets of sliding glass doors with windows either side. As with most rooms in the home the kitchen is large and it features Tasmanian hardwood cabinetry and bench tops, a dishwasher, double stainless steel wash bowls, both electric and old wood stoves and a split system air conditioning unit.
Then there is a massive walk-in pantry. A large bright sunroom, with windows on three sides, has a slate floor and a beautiful outlook over the garden. The main bedroom is, of course, large with a reverse cycle air conditioner, along with a walk-in robe, a ceiling rose and ornate cornices. The air conditioned 2nd bedroom is double sized with a full wall of built-in bookcases, perfect for a library or office, whilst the 3rd bedroom also has its own split system unit. The bathroom has an inviting corner bath, a large shower alcove, a vanity and is extremely spacious. A utility room is separated from the large laundry, with its plentiful cupboards, by the rear entrance hall. Other internal features of the home include a gas, push button temperature control of the ‘on demand’ gas hot water system, a filtered rain water supply plumbed into the house, quality window treatments, fixtures and fittings, brand new carpets and a 5kw solar unit for energy efficient living. All electrical fittings throughout the lounge/living and dining areas are of antique brass. Externally, a wide verandah runs the full length of the western side of the home while the front porch is large enough to be used as an entertaining area.
IMPROVEMENTS: Attached to the home is a double carport with pull down clear blinds, a concrete floor and a matching low brick wall. Adjoining the carport is a lovely pergola with attractive white trellis work that contrasts well with the rich coloured brick work. The substantial shedding begins with a 40’ x 20’ steel framed shed with central high clearance
sliding door, power including fluorescent lighting and plenty of level, well-formed area surrounding this building. Separate to this is a 20’ x 30’ worker’s accommodation building (now functioning as a workshop) with power installed and a porch. Three dividers provide a wash room (bath, shower and toilet), bedroom and living room. The GI implement and hay sheds are adjoined and measure 40’ x 20’ and 30’ x 25’. For the mechanically minded there is a wonderful external pit. Other sundry shedding includes the chook yard, GI storage, wood and feed sheds. Water storage consists of 1 x 3500 gallon poly, 1 x 6000 gallon GI, plus 1 x 4000 gallon GI, 1 x 1800 gallon poly and 2 x 800 gallon rainwater tanks. All
sullage is connected to an inground, electronically operated, Biocycle septic system which, after purification, is fed automatically for garden watering. There is also a set of cattle loading ramps.
