Sitting at the top overlooking 'just over three quarters of an acre' (3162m2) of beautiful gentle sloping land is an adorable one bedroom cottage with an outdoor decking that is perfect and big enough for any occasion - breakfast soirée, a garden tea party, an evening cocktail party, family bbq to a cracker of a celebration party.
The calming effect this quaint and appealing home (quite big really for a little cottage) has when you walk in is serenity personified. It is fully modernised although built in the 1920's. It has a Renovated bathroom, but the toliet is outside (picture perfect outdoor toliet though). The laundry is outside as well. Both the toliet and the laundry are situated in between the cottage and the studio which is used as a second bedroom/guest space at the moment. The studio is made of brick and could be utilised in many ways - artist studio, music studio, yoga or meditation room an office, games room, a classroom - so many different things.
The cottage is an open plan layout with a nicely appointed kitchen with a dining area at the side and leading forward is a good sized living area with glass window doors that lead out to a huge decked and covered area that overlooks the whole property. The cottage is elevated and is situated right at the back of the land. It is just lovely. The bedroom is also situated at the front of the home but off to the side and views from the window overlook the decking and the gorgeous vista of your land in front.
There are numerous fruit trees and the land is easy to keep as it is fairly level but has a gentle slope to it. There are two small sheds and you can also store underneath the home.
Options with this property
Live in it as it is and enjoy the space and serenity and become self-sufficient with vege patches and solar etc. Ideal for the gentle life.
Live in it and build another home on the land as you can have two dwellings on the block, but it is NOT sub-dividable at present. Then you would have a fully equipped guest house with studio at the top of the block (or somewhere to house the children when they won't leave home!!!) or you can Airbnb. AND…… you could have your dream home that you have built closer to the centre or front of the property.
Extend the cottage to make it the feature home and overlook your pretty property, the views and relish your own divine piece of the world. You will still have the option to build another dwelling later down the track if you ever wanted to.
The possibilities are huge for this property and the intrinsic value is something that is indeed rare.
The fruit trees are: Bay leaf tree, Grape vine, 3 orange trees, 2 grapefruit , I lemon, 1 mandarin, 5 apple trees ( Granny Smith and pink lady) , 3 plum trees, 1 mulberry , 5 pistachios ( not all fruiting yet) , 2 almond trees, 2 small mango trees
