Here's an enticing question; what would you do with 5000 square metres of glorious space? This new listing on Huntly's fringe is an invitation to start planning. Far enough out to be surrounded by gum trees and paddocks, yet just five minutes' drive from the shops and primary school, owning this property would be like winning the lotto for anyone craving a country lifestyle.
The big bonus is it comes with a solid double-brick 1980s homestead at its heart. With four bedrooms, two living areas, two bathrooms and a study, the floorplan is fit for a large family.
Pull into the sweeping driveway to glimpse the home through the trees, noting the new Colorbond roof. There's a double carport under the roofline, and a full-length veranda welcoming you home.
Inside, the design makes good use of its solid brick construction with some lovely masonry feature walls. The original timber kitchen is in excellent condition, with upgraded appliances being a dishwasher, wall oven and hot plates. Glass sliding doors in the dining room lead to one of the biggest undercover alfresco areas you're likely to see; this is a property for an outdoors lifestyle.
Down the hallway, two bedrooms have ceiling fans, and all have built-in-robes. The main also features two double robes, a feature brick wall, and a wall of sliding glass doors leading to a new outdoor deck. It's a sanctuary. Both bathrooms are beautifully renovated; you'll love the frameless shower in the main, the designer vanity and gleaming white tiles.
What's left to do? New paint and carpet would freshen the home up wonderfully. Then, it's just back to the plans for the huge block; fence a section for sheep or a pony? Add a family pool? More shedding? (There's already a large shed with concrete floor and power.) Consider this listing your ticket to dream...
