This home was established for a large family, so living areas are large to ensure one doesn't feel cramped. There is a separate area for kids to watch tv and play, giving parents a relief and adults who wish some privacy.

Blackwood kitchen with electric wall oven and gas hotplates and a 2.4 x 1.2m dining table with 12 chairs so meals together have never been more enjoyable. Designed to meet the need of cooking for a tribe.Great bench space always a necessity never enough I tried.This is a home kitchen everything you would like to take away yet can not fit into the car.Abundant plates ,cups glasses,cutlery.Frypans,rice cooker,electric hand beater.bamix, cake tins and recipes. Milkshake maker,juicer and the rest is worth exploring yourself. Reverse cycle split system and small TV.

There are 4 bedrooms in the original part of the house. All of these bedrooms include a queen bed and a single bed if a child needs to be close to Mum and Dad or adults happy to share a room.The rumpus room has a sofa folds out to a double bed, a single bed and a wooden double bed bunk with single bed top..A 40'TV and DVD is here for anyone who can not get a say on what to watch on the other TV.Close to this room is the 4th toilet so no one is skipping around holding on while the other 2 bathrooms are being hogged by the my hair is not quite right people.

The home is not seen until you enter the drive as I have planned the garden so you can amble around and have some peace and quiet.I lost count on how many Camilla,rhodoes and Azazel are here not to mention variety of trees,roses and perennials you can be assured there is colour through every season and Mt Buffalo as the backdrop.

Not forgetting seasonal fruit and nut trees, from which you may pick your own. Ample parking for cars with circular driveway and single undercover carport.

The large pool is the hub of the outdoor entertainment area in Summer with solar heating for those that need the chill taken off . Adjacent to this is the kids play area with climbing fort ,swings and slide .

This area is great for cyclists - awesome training area for road and off road training. Recovery never felt so good when returning to soak in a 10 m solar heated pool.Of course you need to experience a late night swim in summer lie back and check out the stars there are no words ..
