Axedale VIC 3551
Idyllic rural lifestyle
Tucked away off Raines Street on a tranquil 5,986m2 block in Axedale; is this low maintenance modern family home. The home was designed and built in 2009 by the present owners using local craftsmen to take full advantage of the stunning views of the ornamental dam and beautiful park-like surrounds. The dam is home to Maisie and Michael, the property’s resident ducks that waddle instantly to the house when called.
Every square inch of the fully-fenced rabbit-proof 1½ acre block has been lovingly cultivated, resulting in a gardener’s paradise. The secure house yard is a private oasis featuring cottage and native plantings (ensuring Autumn colour and Spring blossom), mature fruit trees, raised vegetable beds, chicken coop, escape proof dog run, garden shed and shade house for continued propagation and renewal. Special attention has been given to scented plantings including flowering natives, roses, honeysuckle and buddleia to attract pollinators and birdlife.
Most importantly water supply for irrigation is guaranteed with roof run-off linked to the large dam and dam pump-house located within the rear garden. The dam is home to fish, a large stock of yabbies and a myriad of water birds that visit seasonally. The property is on the doorstep of the highly regarded Axedale Golf Course and Axedale Township with great schools and community events including markets and community mornings at the historic Axedale Tavern. Active families can take advantage of the O’Keefe Rail Trail located a short stroll away, ideal for dog walks and mountain bike riding.
The beautifully maintained brick veneer home has been cleverly zoned with formal living and internal double garage access at the entrance as well as a separate open plan kitchen-dining-living area that flows directly onto the sun-drenched, covered alfresco overlooking the ornamental dam. The light filled master suite with walk in robe and ensuite also maximises this outlook with direct garden access via sliding doors from all of these rooms.
The highly functional G shaped kitchen includes extensive modern cabinetry, corner pantry, stainless steel appliances, double sink and sleek glass electric cooktop and electric oven. The remaining two double bedrooms can be completely closed off from the rest of the home and are serviced by a modern three piece bathroom with striking oval bath, vanity and shower, separate toilet and large family laundry.
