A SPECTACULAR FUSION OF CHARACTER AND CONTEMPORARY LIVING ON 22.25 ACRES
Ideally situated down a picture perfect country road on the Strathfieldsaye side of Eppalock, this magnificent semi-rural paradise features a large mudbrick homestead bursting with charm and character, nestled in a beautiful setting amidst picturesque green paddocks, with an endless water supply and a massive tradesman size workshop.

An expansive floorplan provides loads of room for the whole family offering five bedrooms plus a study, four of which have walk-in-robes and the main also with an ensuite. Two separate zones incorporate a large open plan kitchen, dining, living area showcasing the amazing stone fire place along with a lounge area with an Arrow free standing wood heater. Year round comfort is assured by numerous reverse cycle air conditioners and ceiling fans.
The custom built kitchen comes well equipped; a central island bench has a Beko induction cooktop installed and the Caesarstone has been cleverly rounded at one end in order to provide an informal dining area ideal for coffee and a chat. Stainless steel appliances include a Bosch wall oven, warming oven, Miele dishwasher and free standing rangehood. A fridge/freezer has also been plumbed in to the Butlers pantry.
For privacy the main bedroom is at one end of the home and from the lounge an ornate leadlight door provides access to a central passage where you will find four good sized bedrooms, three of which have walk-in-robes and one with a built-in-sauna, the last with a built-in-robe and loads of storage including shelving with wire mesh baskets. The study would make an ideal home office with high speed wireless NBN.
This end of the home is serviced by a sparkling family bathroom with a spa bath, separate shower and separate two way toilet. The large laundry is extremely functional with loads of storage space including a good broom closet. A separate powder room / guest toilet is a welcome convenience as well.
Large sliding doors from the open living space create a seamless indoor/outdoor entertaining venue that is sure to accommodate all of your family and friends for get-togethers. A standout feature of this area is the striking circular paving that must be seen to be appreciated. For the warmer months there is a shimmering in-ground salt chlorinated solar heated pool.
The property has been extensively landscaped to a very high standard creating a truly magnificent park-like setting complemented with a vast array of plantings, lush lawns and well established trees. A large majestic ghost gum takes pride of place in the back yard and provides a welcome shade throughout summer. For the green thumb there is a large well-made fully enclosed orchard with a variety of fruit trees along with raised veggie beds and a small hot house.
A real attribute to this country property is the endless water supply which is provided by a bore and a desalination purification plant. This along with 200,000 litres of tank water storage for the garden and 105,000 litres of storage for the home ensures more than enough water. Also a 3.5 megalitre catchment dam at the rear of the property is handy for watering stock.
The property is suitable for all forms of livestock including horses, cattle and sheep etc. There are five main paddocks, stock yards, cattle crush and a loading ramp. Rich fertile creek flats offer prime grazing and a meandering seasonal creek lined with age old red gums complete the picture.
