Just 2 doors from the tranquil waters of the Campaspe River, this property offers an easier way to enjoy a country lifestyle. Set on 1383m2 (almost 1/3 acre), vacant fields front and rear add to the feeling of semi-rural serenity. Established gardens, lofty shade trees and expanses of lawn surround this sweet oasis, along with veggie patches that await planting to fill its large pantry and your family's bellies. As generously proportioned as the residence is, it's none the less comfy and charming. Timber beams, dados and floorboards combine with modern updates to strike a harmonious balance between rustic character and realistic convenience. A welcoming home with a huge wood fire in the immense family room keeps the whole house cosy, due in part to a broad brick heat-bank radiating warmth. Ducted evaporative cooling and ceiling fans throughout ensure the reverse as seasons dictate. Keeping the family connected by being open to the dining and family room, a pristine kitchen containing a dishwasher and electric cooking appliances has loads of cupboards and a breakfast bar. Once a formal lounge, that if preferred could be easily re-instated without any effort, the master bedroom is enormous. It has ample space for a parent's retreat as well as built-in robe, and it has good potential for a future ensuite. Plumbing is only 3 metres away in a bathroom currently servicing this and another 3 bedrooms that already have built-in robes. Opposite the laundry and second loo is a handy multi-purpose room to use as a study, studio or simply storage. Well-sheltered from the elements, the alfresco area owns a brick barbeque, ready to host your housewarming party. Old school shedding as well as a triple-bay carport provide plenty of vehicle coverage, workshop space and dry storage. You'll need that for the new fishing rods and tackle for the family, now that you'll be living so close to the river. With the primary school, golf course, footy ground, pub, train station and shopping precinct all only a 5-minute cycle away, maybe it's time for new bikes too!
