Are you looking for an escape from your current lifestyle?
With 10 acres of land to wander upon, thoughts of how your future life in Clarendon should become top of mind. What type of fruit trees or olives do plant or maybe even a few rows of grapevine? Do you bring in a dozen sheep or goats to keep the grasses down, or maybe a few head of cattle? What about a horse?
Have you ever wanted to own your very own tractor?
Time stands still when you live on a property like this. Time doesn't start at 9 and finishes at 5. You start when you want to, and you stop when you are done! It can be a very nourishing and satisfying lifestyle. Rarely do you watch the clock wishing it to reach 5. Rather, you wish there was more time in the day to keep going because you love the sense of achievement in getting your hands dirty doing things that improve your life, only surrendering to poor light or the call from the kitchen that it's dinner time!
Yes, you are in the country but you are still so close to all the facilities we take for granted and the Clarendon township beckons you with all that it has to offer.
You can still do the 9 to 5 in the city (if you want or have to) but then you can look forward to heading back home to this private sanctuary and plot and plan your desire to break away from the pressure of a city lifestyle permanently!
Weekends no longer will be spent looking for something to do in suburbia to fill the boredom. This property will happily keep you confined to its 10 acres where you will plan and create whatever it is that you want to do away from the outside world and at a pace to suit your needs, and maybe, just maybe, you will immerse yourself in the lifestyle you really want to live.
From the moment you step into the country kitchen, you are transported back to a time where needs were simpler and family life was all about gathering around the table at the end of the day. People came first and technology wasn't the distraction that is has become.
About 160 years of family living has taken place within its walls, this home has stood the test of time and will continue to provide a lifestyle far removed from the modern era. Some of your city slicker friends will be envious and others will think you are mad!
One look at the book leaf exposed stonework in the walls should tell you that this home is irreplaceable!
You will learn to fix things, make things and change things to suit your needs, but one thing is certain, you will definitely not want to change the parts of this property that make it what it is.
Upgrades. Yes. The owner has improved features to bridge the gap between the 1860s and 2021 but not to the point that the past has been obliterated with modern blandness. It's rustic charm and well aged features have been preserved amongst the add ons. Solar power on the roof, split system air-conditioning, a solar hot water service combined with a wood burning stove give you the luxury of hot water while ceiling fans feature in the lounge and main bedroom. There are even downlights in the living room and kitchen!
Verandahs shade the home from the heat of the day and provide shelter from the rain. And when the afternoons get long and the sun stays around longer than usual, you sit outside under their protection and listen to the sounds of the native life that surrounds you.
Behind the home, you can let your gardening prowess take hold and capitalize on the current owners' self-sufficient paradise or you can seek out another area on your big expanse of land to grow whatever it is that you wish to grow.
A large shed houses two cars side by side and within it, a workshop and craft room sit idle, waiting for someone to give them a new purpose.
Do you dare to dream about such a lifestyle? Now you can make it happen!
