The 2 front bedrooms have double glazed windows, 1 with original mixed hardwood floors. A study/guest room flows from the living area and the extension houses a luxurious garden bathroom, complete with a restored cast iron claw foot bath and vanity nook.
A traditional bullnose verandah is the hero of the large and private outdoor entertaining space that overlooks the paddocks and stunning mountain views, providing an ideal space for afternoon-tea through to large family gatherings.
