THE delightfully named ‘Willowleigh’ is a heritage-style retreat set among picturesque gardens that are a haven for birdlife.
A wide bullnose veranda and deck wrap around the 1998-built house and are a great place to sit and look over the boardwalk and lake with weeping willow and Monet bridge.
Inside there is a large living room and country-style, open-plan kitchen/dining area that share a double-sided slow-combustion wood-fired heater.
A sunroom is a light-filled space where you can relax with a cup of tea and enjoy the view.
It opens to a guest bedroom with ensuite and built-in robe and could be used as a living area for visitors when they come to stay.
Or you could make these rooms your master suite.
The master bedroom is near the entry and has a walk-in robe and spacious semi-ensuite.
There are two more bedrooms, both with built-in robes.
As well as the extensive gardens with walkways and sitting areas, the 6958sq m property includes a large and small shed, chicken coop, double carport and storage area, and jetty.
While it feels like a secluded piece of rural paradise, it is just a short walk from the centre of Denmark with shops, cafes and restaurants.
