Looking for something Special??? Well look no further!!!

Straight from the pages of a fairy-tale, this romantic hills home on MASSIVE block is far from ordinary. It’s intriguing; it’s positively charming, and so very, very different! Oozing character in every corner, it’s like a magical mystery tour be it outside in the garden or inside the house as you discover all the rooms!

On secluded grounds, you’ll feel a million miles from everywhere, but the reality is you are indeed in the heart of Macclesfield.

Follow the long, sweeping driveway… listen to the chirping of the wild birds; hear the gravel crunch underfoot these are the only sounds you’ll hear amidst the serenity of this hideaway retreat.

Offering 3 gorgeous bedrooms plus a study, the main bedroom has a room like passage with built-in robes leading you towards the main bedroom in the shape of an octagon. This room has soaring high ceilings with windows set in 5 different angles, some of the large full height windows are decorated with coloured glass which allows the warming morning sun as well as the evening light in. While looking out these windows there is always surprises to be seen, kookaburras on the bride, parrots high up in the trees, the occasional peaceful floating turtle in the dam and the visiting ducks that come up from the creek only metres away.

The enchanting country kitchen looking out into a cosy courtyard has a delightful Indian arch door entry adjoins the enormous living room, with split system air conditioning, storage cupboards uner the full frontal windows (perfect to keep all those toys hidden!) and opens to the outdoor entertaining area.
The large separate family room has a roaring combustion heater in formal lounge/dining is the drawcard for the winter nights ahead. A full height north facing glass door spills warm light into the living room during winter, this also leads out to a spacious decking. The ideal sun baking spot abd perfect location for a spa.

The bathroom and laundry are combined. It has a charming window looking out into the bushland garden, also decorated with coloured glass. This window facing east lets the morning sun come through and surround the ocean blue bath tub and mosaic tiles. The combination of turquoise walls and indigo blue tiles gives an almost Mexican feel.

With vast, glorious grounds of 4130sqm approx, this is a superb family property – a remarkable children’s adventure playground where they can explore the winding pathways, build tree houses; play hide’n seek among the assorted flowering shrubs, or catch yabbies for 7-8 months a year in 2 of the dams. Outside also includes tranquil decking areas in all four directions and a massive rambling garden with loads of drought resistant natives. There’s also snug undercover parking for two cars with extensive internal height to utilise, for example storing your surfboards and kayaks.

Due to its huge size, no doubt interest will be high from developers and builders due to its development potential (STCC).

Your safe haven far from the hustle and bustle, but only minutes from everywhere.

BUT WARNING: At this price, this is sure to be hugely popular, so don’t miss our first open this coming weekend. It might not be here on Monday!!
