Jenolan Street Chalet is a unique, substantial 2 storey, 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home which has a sunny northerly aspect. It is located within the town of Oberon, however is surrounded by crown land at the rear and side of the property so has the benefit of being right in the town with an out-of-town feel. It is just a 1-2 minute drive to the town centre!
The property sits on high on the side of a hill and hence has unsurpassed views which overlook the town of Oberon! The amazing views can be enjoyed from anywhere on the property. From the large timber deck balcony just off the main bedroom upstairs, to the large picture windows in the downstairs lounge room, to the outdoors BBQ area. The views are amazing!
Enjoy a hot cuppa sitting on the outdoor setting of the timber deck watching the sun rise over the town in the early morning, or enjoy a glass of wine in early evening when the sun sets. It is just so relaxing to sit there and enjoy the views and space.
The sun just pours into the windows, and is just ideal for taking in the warmth of the sun reading the newspaper, a good book or even to have a siesta in the afternoon.
Wildlife such as kangaroos, wallabies, wombats feed just around the property and are always seen in the early morning and late afternoon.
The living space is HUGE!! The lounge room and sitting room are adjoining creating a huge open plan space.
There is a formal dining room which also has large picture style windows on the north-west side of the house which lets in the lovely mid to afternoon sun! Great place to gather to enjoy lunch or dinner.
This place is ideal for a couple looking for a romantic time away, to a large group or family/s getaway wishing to explore the area either mid-week or the weekend or both!. The house easily accommodates up to 10 people! That's 2 or even 3 families with children!
The property is ideal for a family getaway on the weekend or mid-week or extended holiday. Can easily accommodate two families with children as the property can sleep up to 10 people and has a very large living space for everyone to enjoy!
