Bushland at your back door with no passing traffic, plus every modern amenity at home, this property truly does bring together the best of both worlds. Beyond the backyard, indulge the senses in a wistful woodland vista bordering Bullock Creek, where wildflowers await the passing of winter. Weighty gum boughs yearn to be climbed by curious children as the scent of eucalyptus rejuvenates weary minds and souls of elders. Indoors, contemporary comforts abound in this 4-year-old Dennis Family Home. Reverse cycle air conditioning and ducted evaporative cooling, coupled with an enclosed wood heater, harmonise convenience with ambience. All 3 bedrooms and both living zones possess substantial proportions. A generous supply of built-in storage includes walk-in robe, pantry and linen room as well as big built-in robes. Stainless steel appliances, incorporating a gas cooktop and dishwasher, are ready to assist at mealtimes in the galley-style kitchen. Perfectly positioned for transporting groceries from car-boot to the exceptionally large walk-in pantry, it's just a few steps from a direct access door to a double garage that also has automated vehicle entry doors. For more family fun outdoors, without wet weather or sunburn worries, an expansive pitched roof pergola provides protection and a place to relax, party and play. Side gates, along with a track between the boundary and the creek, allow access to the fully fenced backyard for trailer or caravan storage. Currently a blank canvas with the focus on the adjoining indigenous flora, backyard access may come in handy for future landscaping. With ample space for a pool and/or a shed, depending on size (STCA), it could be a useful attribute for additions to the property too. Marong may be small but it certainly has much to offer. Locally, a primary school, public transport, general store, medical practice, family hotel, cafe, golf club are just some of the facilities and enjoyments you can find here. For all else, central Bendigo is 15km away and it's 155km from Melbourne CBD. So, if you think an escape to the country must forego all mod-cons, then you're greatly mistaken, as at this address reveals!
