Located at the end of a quiet road, this Spectacular Home is inspired by its natural environment and designed 30 years ago by the owner, a local architect. Now we find a property that not only blends in with the native beauty of Somersby but works incredibly well for the family looking to entertain or relax in complete privacy whilst being a short drive to the M1 motorway, Gosford CBD and the sensational beaches that the Central Coast have to offer.
The land is something straight out of an Australian Novel with its beautiful tree lines, colourful wild flowers and native Gymea Lilies towering several metres when in bloom. A full 72 acres, the property adjoins Brisbane Water National park and other large acreages, though you will struggle to see or hear any neighbours. A natural spring fed creek passes through the property creating a distant sound of cascading water. Small waterfalls and natural pools have developed over time, attracting local wildlife, especially a wide variety of birds which come to feed on the verandah. The children will love catching yabbies that are delicious eating.
The home itself is built of local timbers with wide covered verandas and has the perfect north aspect to enjoy the scenic views and cool north east breezes. The layout and design have been well thought out with the main living area, kitchen and library located in the centre position which provides an ideal buffer between the bedroom wing and entertaining area.
The bedrooms are all large, north facing and flow out to the covered veranda. The master bedroom is in a class of its own and features high ceilings, indoor/outdoor ensuite facilities and a fabulous wardrobe/dressing room. Completing this wing of the home is a generous laundry/mud room and three way bathroom for the family.
At the other end of the home is a fabulous entertaining room that features high ceilings, beautiful timber floors and large doors taking in the sunshine and local natives. The room is ideal for a full sized billiard table, grand piano or both!
In addition to the main house there is a large two bedroom cabin/studio complete with double carport that is not visible from the home but easily accessible from the driveway and road frontage. There are three 5000 gallon tanks that store rainwater, with a backup pump from the spring fed creek.
There are too many features and benefits to list and some need to be shown to truly appreciate. The home is available by private inspection.
