Located up a quiet no through road just on the edge of the quaint country town of Geeveston, this is the original Manse for the local Church. It is recorded to have been built in 1880 and is a wonderful historical landmark that has recently been renovated to a very high standard by its current owners. The manse now provides a family plenty of space to spread out with a flexible floor plan that will suit just about everyone.
Positioned well back on a 2031m2 allotment, there is a large grassy section in front with a second grassy play area out the back giving the grounds a lovely park-like feel. Down the side there is a separate workshop and studio providing even more space to spread out. The grounds are slightly elevated, proving an outlook over rural pastures, the township and the hills that surround. Over the back fence, the neighbouring property is a large paddock, adding to the lovely country feel this property offers. And yet, it is located ideally to take full advantage of being able to stroll into the town centre for the paper and a coffee or to the local park for picnics, exercise and maybe a glimpse at the local platypus.
Inside, the home is gorgeous. Practically a new home now, there are plenty of natural period features that have been brought to life, with the complete comforts of a modern house. Well insulated, you can enjoy easy living within a period home. It has been a labour of love for the past 9 years and the current owners are to be commended for 'getting it right'. The timber floors are beautiful. The painted wood panelling looks amazing. There ceiling is pressed tin in the kitchen. Saving the awesome brick fireplace and making it a feature as well as functional. There are high ceilings throughout. The windows are perfectly in keeping and the French doors are a real feature.
The kitchen has to be one of the largest I've seen in a while, with plenty of space here for a huge wooden country table and a chopping block. The appliances are of good quality and a clever introduction of a walk-in pantry is sure to please. Both bathrooms are stylish and timeless. Large grey tiles provide a touch of luxury on the floors and crisp subway tiles line the walls. Both have a deep bath to soak away the day.
The master bedroom suite is spacious with a full walk-in robe as well as the ensuite. Two other bedrooms are super quaint with access to the verandah and the central second living. The 4th bedroom can be a sunroom off the lounge or home office or art studio space. The lounge is also bright and airy with a high Dutch ceiling and large windows framing the views. from here you pop through to the second living and dining, which leads through the French doors to the rear entertaining area. Behind the beautiful fireplace, there is a clever nook ideal for a study or reading nook. Sit back with a good book and ponder away the afternoon. The 2 ends of the home can be shut off, one end has the Parent's bedroom, lounge and sunroom. The other are the kids' rooms that open out to their own activities area and the study nook. Very clever and very practical.
