A MAN’S home is his castle, or it could be a country manor or fairytale cottage, or renovated church – you can see elements of a range of styles in this rather amazing home.
It has stained-glass windows, an arched doorway and windows, exposed limestone walls, soaring ceilings, gleaming bamboo flooring, wrought-iron ballustrading and a gorgeous rustic kitchen with timber cabinetry and marri benchtops.
All of this is on a 2.01ha bushland property, complete with a pool, workshop with power connected, shed for a boat or caravan and a chicken coop.
From the outside it has the feel of a rural home with limestone walls with feature brickwork, front veranda and a “tin” roof.
Inside, there is a cathedral-like open-plan living/dining/kitchen area with soaring ceilings, pillars and a wood-fired heater.
This room opens to a covered deck, complete with pizza oven, that overlooks the pool.
It is a great place to entertain year-round, with a pot-belly stove to keep you and your guests warm on chilly evenings.
There are two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study on the ground floor.
A mezzanine level houses two more bedrooms and a bathroom and has fabulous views.
Other features include split system airconditioning, electric gate, water tanks for house water and pool, bore, solar panels and solar hot-water system.
