Affordable, established, spacious and conveniently situated, this property embodies all the reasons why there's no need to build anew. An unimpeded line of sight from front door to rear boundary further instils the sense of space that is immediately apparent upon entry. On opposite sides of the kitchen-meals area, the 2 living zones can be separated from each other simply by closing a hallway door, a family harmony enhancer so often not included in new builds these days. Owning a walk-in pantry, plus a long island breakfast bar thoughtfully equipped with power points, the kitchen is perfectly positioned to host a party. Stainless steel appliances include a new dishwasher, and there will be no need to worry whether your fridge will fit with the consideration given to that thought here. Possessing dimensions demanding status as a true parental retreat, the substantial master bedroom reserves an ideal position for a chaise or cosy sofa within a bay window. Twin vanity and a 1200mm shower plus a walk-in robe complete this serene scene. Double door built-in robes belong to 2 more big bedrooms that sit either side of a study nook and family bathroom with spa. To manage local weather extremes, gas heating and evaporative cooling are ducted throughout the home. However, expenses on utilities will be minimised by the 4kw solar panels, as well as a 2000 litre rainwater tank that is connected to the toilets. Mostly giving the chilly southerly weather the cold shoulder of brickwork, the residence optimises a north-easterly aspect with large windows capturing winter sunlight, also saving energy on heating. Glass sliding doors link the family room with an undercover alfresco area that adjoins extensive paving. Established landscaping encompasses retaining walls, mulched areas, veggie patches, shrubs, plus ground covers and there's a garden shed to stow the mower. Alongside the double garage that has direct entry indoors, side gates allow secure off-street parking of a trailer, boat or caravan in the well-fenced backyard. Commuters will appreciate less than a 10 minute cycle to the train station and central Bendigo is 7 kilometres from this address. Four doors from a bus stop, it's also close to a community health centre, schools, shopping, services and sporting facilities. Forest Lake is only 200 metres away and Bendigo Regional Park not much more. A wonderful opportunity to start new traditions of family bushwalks and picnics, or a regular routine of escaping for some quiet time and a brisk walk, the location is terrific too.
