Steeped in history and beautifully updated for modern family comfort, this stunning Victorian farm house surrounded by mature elms and oaks is a picture of gracious country living only moments from Somerville town centre.
Set on an acre (approx.) behind remote gates, wide relaxing vine-covered verandas encircle much of the sprawling four-bedroom residence that dates back to the 1880s and once presided over a large orchard.
Inside, extensive renovations have built on the Victorian era charm of high ceilings, ornate plasterwork and open fireplaces with stunning new bathrooms and a superb kitchen, modern lighting, hydronic heating and ducted airconditioning.
From the leadlight front door, a central hallway with corbelled arches and dark stained original timber floors leads past three large bedrooms including two with open fireplaces and a large family bathroom, while a formal lounge also features an open fireplace and French doors to a north-facing side veranda.
An open plan kitchen, meals and family room also opens to the veranda and a genuine cast iron fountain imported from France in the 1930s.
The brand-new kitchen offers stone benchtops, two stainless steel ovens and a matching gas cooktop and a slow burning wood heater in the family area provides even more winter ambience.
In the parent’s wing, the master bedroom offers a chic new ensuite and walk-in robe, there is also a quiet study or fifth bedroom as well as a fitted laundry.
With a double carport, double garage, secure lock-up workshop, delightful gardens with large lawn areas and just moments from shops, cafes, restaurants and schools, this superb home offers the ultimate town and country experience.
