If a weekend drive through the Hills is a favourite, you might just be familiar with this imposingly grand residence at Ashton.
Beautifully constructed 25 years ago by the current owners in accordance with the Victorian era to accommodate their large family, "Avalon" (Welsh for paradise) stands as an epic 6-bedroom home where original charm remains and free-roaming family living beckons.
Enveloped in its wrap-around verandah and perched high to overlook the much loved family gardens at its feet, delightful first impressions continue once inside.
You'll enter via the central stairs to the front door opening to the broad central hallway with striking Bamboo floors, 3.5m ceilings complete with gilt edged cornices, Victorian pillars, archways and French plastered walls taking you right back to the charm of yesteryear.
To the formal lounge and the grand dining / billiard room, where you'll find fire-places, decorative ceilings and bay windows taking in ever-changing views of the surrounding countryside. The expansive hall flanked by three of your six bedrooms - giving way to the open plan kitchen and living room.
Of course, when the family comes together, there's no better place than the kitchen and neighbouring lounge, both configured to take in the views of an adventurous garden boasting expansive lawns, the odd secret nook as well as your very own pine forest, a veggie patch, fruit orchard and chook yard.
The expansive country Rosewood kitchen - with granite benchtops, double ovens and oversized cooktop - proves that the current owners know a thing or two about large family living and entertaining with French doors giving way to the outside living...
Downstairs from the main living is yet another surprise. If the 6th bedroom is not required and a home theatre is on your list, here it is! Complete with new ensuite bathroom this quiet space will have you captivated in the latest Netflix series. Movie nights never looked so good!
And the surprises don't end here. With a huge under-house garaging, storage and workspace and even perfect wine cellar storage the possibilities here are endless.
A games room, teenager's retreat or ladies room as it is currently utilized offers yet another place to relax and enjoy this special property. Complete with slow combustion fire and opening to an undercover entertaining area, many hours of fun has been had here...
When the kids are tuckered out and tucked away, you'll find your own blissful rest gazing over the countryside from the 3m wide balcony with a local vintage in hand and the warble of the neighbouring birds in the trees above.
And when it's time to rest your head, the master suite boasts a marble clad ensuite and walk in robe as well as a generous bedroom opening to the veranda via Western Red Cedar doors where you can drift off knowing that you'll wake to a home steeped in beauty and style. Sweet dreams...
