8 BAZLEY STREET, LEONGATHA
OLD WORLD CHARM (circa. 1880s)
Welcome to this old world delight known as "Len Du", as soon as you set eyes on this character filled home, you will instantly feel at home. If you are passionate about period homes then this one will take you to your happy place. Originally an old dairy farm house with some original features in place including 11ft high ceilings and original Baltic pine weatherboards (on front/original part of house), there has been the added bonus of an extension added to the back of the house to accommodate for a growing family.
This lovely home is ready to move into, actually you wouldn't need to lift a finger for many years. However, if you are an experienced renovator or a budding The Block' wannabe then this is the perfect property for you. The location is also a winner with only a 600m walk to the local supermarket and main street plus a 300m walk to the Great Southern Rail Trail where you can enjoy a relaxing walk past dairy farms, lowland forest, wetlands and take in the view and all that nature has to offer.
Len Du' is perfect for a family and has a flexible floorplan of 3-4 bedrooms (2 downstairs & 2 upstairs) or the 4th room would make an ideal home office, artist studio or living area as it is accessed via one of the downstairs bedrooms. The master bedroom is charming and a place of relaxation and has an ornamental open fireplace. There are 2 bathrooms to ease with the morning rush of a bigger family. Upon entry at the side of the house is a delightful sitting room, this opens out to the extension which includes a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living room which is perfect for keeping the family together and entertaining. The Blackwood kitchen has a dishwasher, gas/electric stove and an island bench perfect for serving or sitting around. A split system reverse cycle and gas heater cover the heating and cooling of the home.
Through double French doors leading off the living area is an outdoor deck where you will want to spend most of your time during the warmer months. Here you will be able to sip your beverage of choice and listen to the birdsong in the morning and enjoy the privacy of a fully enclosed backyard with a lovely rural outlook. The block is an impressive size of 1221m2.
The gardens are lovely and low maintenance. A single carport is to the side of the house and a large shed (approx. 9m x 6m) is there for those who love to tinker in a workshop.
This home is so lovely and worth your inspection. If you have any questions, please contact Jean O'Loughlin on 0428 571 083.
