Idyllic Country Family Living
Embrace the country dream with ‘The Crow’s Nest’, a beautiful homestead on approx. 20 acres. Located just minutes from the lovely community of Axedale, the property is perfectly positioned – less than 20 minutes from central Bendigo and Heathcote and only 75km to Echuca, 110km to Shepparton and 135km to Melbourne.
Set back from the road, head down a beautiful sweeping driveway lined with established eucalypts before reaching the sprawling family home. A wide, wraparound verandah circles the entire house, offering a beautiful outlook from all angles. Stepping in through the front door, the detail and quality of the property is apparent. Heritage-style features such as decorative cornice, 9-foot ceilings, dado boards and Ironbark parquetry timber flooring combined with generous proportions make this a truly special space.
A guest room, with a built-in robe, can be found off the main entry and at the far end of the home is the master suite, complete with a large walk-in robe and a light and bright ensuite. At the other end of the home are four further bedrooms, three of which have built-in robes. At this end of the house is also a huge laundry with ample storage, a separate toilet with access to both the laundry and a powder room, and off the powder room is a separate space with bath and shower – a great design when accommodating many residents.
At either side of the entry hall are two great-sized living areas. To one side, a formal lounge and dining room features Tasmanian Oak timber flooring, timber sash windows, a split system, ceiling fan and gas log fire. An office off the lounge provides the perfect place to work from home. To the other side is a large family room with a beautiful wood-burning stove. Adjoining the two living spaces, and behind the entry, is a gorgeous timber country kitchen with ample storage space, including a large walk-in pantry, an exposed brick exhaust and lovely views out to the rear garden and Sugarloaf Forest beyond.
The garden can be accessed via a number of doors throughout the home. From the kitchen, step out to a beautiful deck overlooking the established fruit trees and garden. The 20 acres (approx. plus an additional 5 acres under 99 year lease) are fully fenced, with four large paddocks (all with water) in addition to the house yard. A number of outbuildings as well as a huge shed and the double garage attached to the house provide plenty of storage and places to set up a work space.
Additional features include:
-Ducted evaporative cooling at one end of the house and reverse cycle heating and cooling
-Modern appliances in the kitchen including five-burner gas cooktop, fan forced Smeg oven in a traditional style, and dishwasher
-3 x tanks totaling approx. 45,000l and an additional 145,000l tank feeding the house
