House of the week: Right at home in the country

THIS charming home, set on 14 acres in Lockwood South, has the perfect blend of country living in close proximity to the shopping centre.

The owner says her favourite thing is sitting on the chair on the front porch overlooking the dam which is abundant in local wildlife including red fin.

As the sun sets over the property you can even see the kangaroos come down for a drink.

The home itself is well-presented with lots of light and five good-sized bedrooms, making it ideal for a family who want the space and privacy of a bush setting.

Through the front door you enter a cosy lounge area. The focal point is the Coonara wood heater which stands against a red brick feature wall.

To the right is a corridor leading to four of the five bedrooms, a family bathroom with separate toilet and a good sized laundry with plenty of storage. 

Three of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes with a strip of colour in the picture rails adding a nice touch.

The main bedroom is at the end of the house and boasts a walk-in wardrobe and en suite as well as direct access to outside.

To the left of the lounge area is an open-plan kitchen with wooden units, dishwasher, wall oven and four-burner cooktop and a dining area which opens to an outside entertaining area.

There is also another bedroom with built-in wardrobe and a study. The study is fully plumbed and could be converted into another en suite.

There is split-system heating and cooling and ceiling fans throughout

Outside there is a charming wrap-around verandah, two water tanks with a combined capacity of 25,000 litres, and a 7mx13m concreted fully powered shed that doubles as a games room.
