Idyllically located, on the edge of bushland with sweeping views across the Moorooduc Plains, this picture-perfect 4-5 bedroom homestead-style residence offers a world of abundance and opportunities for blissful family resort-style living on one acre (4,046sqm approx.). Privately set at the end of a long driveway on a battle-axe block, the charming, solid brick home with wrap-around bluestone-paved verandahs is positioned closer than any other in the area to the Moorooduc Quarry Flora and Fauna Reserve. Rich in rustic warmth and earthiness, the original 1970s home has been scrupulously maintained. Walls of windows, and glass sliding doors open to the rear verandah overlooking the garden, pool, and bushland beyond, while well-placed skylights allow abundant light to flood in. Newly carpeted, the spacious main living area has an open fire place and the master bedroom has walk through built-in robes and ensuite bathroom. The rumpus room, or fifth bedroom, also has a wet bar, which could be converted to an additional ensuite. The family and meals area with original cork flooring and Coonara heater is set around the classic timber kitchen featuring a St.George oven and copper rangehood. There are a further three bedrooms, all with built in robes and outlooks to the front garden, and a large family bathroom with corner spa bath.
