This level also contains 3 bedrooms and office/bedroom, plus a bright, spacious bathroom complete with luxurious tub, great sized vanity and separate shower area.
On the bottom level is a massive 100m2 of extra multi-purpose living space – rumpus, teenagers retreat, playroom for the kids on rainy days or just handy for parties – the choice is yours. There is even a kitchenette and another separate air conditioned room that could be used for an office or whatever you desire. An extra ‘utility’ room is handy for hobbies or all your garden accessories plus there is a complete separate extra bathroom downstairs perfect for that quick shower without going into the main house.

There is plenty of grassy yard for the kids to play plus the pets will be safe with the house yard all fenced. There is even a chook and duck pen if a dog is not enough! The boundary fencing is in good condition and there is a few internal fenced yards. The 20mtr x 7.5mtr 5 bay shed will house anything you own with a 2 car covered carport and tractor shed providing extra space. A large diesel generator is hardwired into the house for emergency power and the solar system with backup batteries will certainly cut down your power bills.
