A property like this is very hard to find especially as prices in this very popular small town keep soaring. Properties in the greater area has grown by an average of 15% year on year, in the last four years, so get your little piece of paradise now.
This country style home has been tastefully renovated, keeping with the rustic feel without overly modernizing the sun filled house, which is just two blocks away from the town's central shops and bank. A 1392sqm erf is cleverly arranged with the house built to the front of the yard, giving you loads of garden space to the rear. Together with the irrigation, lei water dam and bore-hole this provides the perfect canvas to develop the vegetable garden of your dreams. With Cherry, lemon, orange, fig, almond and apple trees that are already established, you are well on your way to a coveted backyard.
Step onto your back patio and you could be forgiven for thinking you owned your own farm, with horses on the neighbours property followed by a small river. ‘Farm ’is in fact the nickname that the current owner’s granddaughter dubbed her granny's house. With no other house overlooking your back yard, this really is an idyllic lifestyle property.
The house consists of three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the master bedroom being on-suite with a large walk in shower. The main bedroom, one guest room and family bathroom is down stairs. Upstairs you will find a large open attic style room, currently being used as a third bedroom but it is big enough to turn it into two bedrooms or use it as an office or even a large work room, sewing room or kids play den. With tons of clever storage built into the pitched roof cavity the options are endless.
Also downstairs you have a spacious open plan lounge and dining room, that walks into a sun room, with glass doors to the patio.
From the dining room, you walk into a large kitchen with new cupboards and an eye level oven and gas hob. The kitchen extends to a larger eat in area with a built-in fireplace and stunning Dover stove that heats up the area in no time.
Over and above this you have a bachelor's flat on the side of the property with its own driveway, garage and entrance. The current owner uses it as an extra guest room and uses this garage currently as a workshop.
On the front side of house, there is a single carport and a remote controlled single garage, all behind palisade fencing.
