Built in 1928, this large country villa was the bank mangers residence. The former bank attached at the front of this home is now used as the family room, it even still contains the vault and CHUBB safe.
The managers residence features two large bedrooms downstairs and a large loft bedroom upstairs with it's own air conditioner.
Elaborate ceiling roses in the formal dining and formal lounge are a wonderful feature. These rooms have been restored to demonstrate the decor for the era.
The formal dining room features an open fireplace while the formal lounge contains a slow combustion fireplace. Cooling for the home is via the ducted evaporative air conditioner which was only installed in 2018.
The owners have done extensive work on the home whilst maintaining the character of the twenties. A new bathroom does bring that room into the 21st century.
The loo under the back verandah has now become the second loo for when work is being done on the 1010m2 block.
The kitchen features a lot of storage and still has the old wood stove as a feature. A new electric stove was installed only in 2018.
Under the back verandah is the sleepout which would lend itself to being a fourth bedroom or study.
A valuable bonus is the large solar system and battery. These were installed in 2018 as well. In addition to this money saving system, four rainwater tanks with a total capacity of approx 13,000 litres help to keep the water bills low. A new heat exchange hot water service was installed in 2020.
A seperate games room which is lined and insulated has been created in the 9x6m shed. Approx 6x6m is the games room and 3x6m for storage or a hobby space. There is even internet connection to it!!
Adjacent to the games room is a high clearance carport (remove the roller door and approx 2.9m clearance is achieved). The carport is approx 7x9m. A seperate 6x3.6m shed is used as a workshop. Throw in the wood shed and chook pen and the shedding is complete.
The back yard has fruit trees, flowers, fountain plus an undercover fernery/green house which is joined to the large back verandah and outside entertaining area.
The outside of the house has recently been painted along with the roof and new guttering installed.
