With an impressive approach over a long driveway surrounded by paddocks, this represents a unique opportunity to acquire a home and annexe, hidden within its own acreage.
The main house is a 3 bedroom detached chalet style residence, originally constructed in about 1918. The property was subsequently enlarged, and has been tastefully improved by the current vendors. There is the additional advantage of a detached one bedroom annexe.
There is an extensive range of outbuildings which include 3 former cattery buildings. At one time, there was a thriving business, licensed for 40 cats but the owners have recently decided to retire and the business has discontinued. These buildings would lend themselves to a similar or alternative use, subject to appropriate licenses and planning consents.
The property enjoys open views over its own land, is not overlooked, and borders a stream on the southern boundary.
