Australian nostalgic charm and beauty. Leyton
Set on approximately 38 acres, this magnificent house has been built with quality materials by a master builder and captures the grandeur and opulence of a turn of the century home.
The home is over 2 levels and features 5 grand sized bedrooms with 12 foot ceilings, 3 bathrooms, library or cinema room, rumpus room as well as multiple storage rooms. The main building has polished Tallow wood floors.
From every room, French doors open out onto the wrap-around veranda, with stunning views of the Wildlife Refuge over a nature-styled pool which attracts native birds and animals right to your door.
The open fireplace in the grand lounge room, is the heart of the home and creates romance from a former age: with vaulted ceilings, a sprung floor, decorative ceiling roses and period light fittings.
The dining room adjoins the lounge area and is northerly facing which captures beautiful natural sunlight.
The kitchen has a slow-combustion wood stove which provides extra heating and boosts the solar hot water system.
18 solar panels ensure the utility bills are kept at a minimum.
Good internet connection is available.
The property has 3 x 19,000 litre concrete tanks which cool drinking water, plus 3,785 litre grey-water tank for toilets and garden irrigation.
Adding to this there are 3 dams which supply an endless stream of fresh water to the home.
The acreage features dry-sclerophyll forest with a wide variety of native flora and fauna. There are several perennial creeks which have subtropical pockets.
Sit on your veranda and enjoy the peace with the native birds and animals in your own private retreat.
