SANCTUARY SO CLOSE TO TOWN
Amidst the setting of beautiful established trees and gardens, stands this
1985 classic, solid as rock, double clinker brick home.
This Built to Last beauty is situated on the front block of 3 acres while there is
another block planted with many native trees, which has been approved for
subdivision. Careful planning and planting of trees has created the utmost
privacy for both blocks as well as home to a vast array of birdlife. The property
has its own bore in addition to town water.
Downstairs, the welcoming foyer flows into the dining room, then to a large
living/meals room, then into a gracious formal sitting room featuring a
beautifully handcrafted Victorian Ash library and dresser. The kitchen is
enviably spacious with plenty of storage with classic Tasmanian blackwood
cupboards and a walk in pantry.
There is a double lock-up garage with private entrance to both the house and
a massive rumpus/table tennis/leisure room or home business office.
The house is cooled in Summer by high ceiling and wide verandahs as well as
evaporated cooling. In winter, each of the living areas can be closed off with
tasteful timber pane glass French doors and kept warm and cosy with hydronic heating.
Upstairs there are 4 generous bedrooms; 3 with BIR, the master bedroom
with a walk in robe, ensuite with spa, separate shower and toilet.
From every solid timber window in this carefully designed home, there are
pretty treetop and garden views.
A circular driveway creates a cleverly landscaped environment – the outer
with established trees, shedding, chook shed, brick shed (with potential for a
studio space) and a drip-watered no dig vegie patch, boutique orchard and
grapevine. The inner circle has been lovingly created with roses, flowers and
herbs to watch the families of magpies, willy wagtails and honey-eaters.
To sit and enjoy a glass of wine in this thoughtfully crafted and maintained
garden, it is easy to imagine you are miles away from anywhere, the reality is
you are only walking distance to Cobram, a buzzing tourist town on the Murray.
39 Catona Crescent was built in an era where quality was a builder’s
trademark – it is both a sturdy and gracious structure. This is a nature lover’s
sanctuary, just moments from town, perfect for a growing family where you
can enjoy the best of both worlds.
