Live your best life in this charming home just 10 minutes from Stirling
Are you looking to join a caring community not just buy a new home? This stunningly self-sufficient 1 acre with lovely old home is waiting for a new owner to take over the reins. The Scott Creek community is equally keen to welcome you in.
You will be wooed by the romance of this property as you approach through the glorious English flower gardens to the traditional front verandah. Inside you’ll find exquisite detailing including high ceilings with elaborate mouldings, beautiful fireplaces and lovely timber windows. Meticulous restoring of the original rooms has produced a gorgeous backdrop for your new idyllic rural life. Picture spacious and beautifully finished rooms overlooking the harmoniously colour-coded flower gardens and treed landscape beyond.
The hub of the home, the kitchen and meals area, features a sunny and welcoming kitchen (with dishwasher) open to the sky-lit meals area with plenty of pantry storage. This family zone also offers a large and inviting sunroom facing north and east. In addition, there is a splendid formal living room with high ceilings and stunning timber detailing. Soothing rural vistas from every window entice you beyond.
Outdoors? Where to begin… The paved patio outside the kitchen area offers a beautiful elm-shaded alfresco dining area. Country Style magazine would love a photo shoot here. BBQ’s and brunches outside will be accompanied by quaint garden vistas and dappled sunlight. Of-course there’s also the pretty front verandah or side verandah for more entertaining options!
Outside the laundry door is another conveniently covered area which leads on to the highly productive zones. Beyond the two garages plus garden shed, you will find the very finest in poultry accommodation plus a fully caged (bird-proof) berry garden and super-productive vege patch. The soil is so rich on this land you will have masses of surplus produce to share.
The separate poultry paddock leads to extensive fruit and nut tree orchards. Permaculture guidelines are in evidence. These zones are attractive and well-manicured extensions of the lovely garden, but so well-thought out. No need to visit the fruit and veg shop again. 56,000 litres of rainwater, plus a bore and a 3KW solar power system complete the impressive self-sufficiency equation.
Loads of work has been undertaken on the infrastructure to supply the new owner with an easy transition and independent lifestyle. The house has been re-wired and re-roofed, the driveway has been freshly resurfaced, and there are new hot water and aerobic septic systems in place. This ‘forever’ home and lifestyle is ready for your embrace.
This property offers the space to breathe, play and thrive. All just 30 minutes to the CBD. Nirvana is found and it’s here in the heart of the Scott Creek community.
