‘The Woodlands’; a magnificent fairy-tale setting with total seclusion offering picturesque views hidden from the world for far too long…
“‘Please park by the tennis courts at this weekend’s open”
Held tightly by one family since 1901, the property has never been put up for sale. ‘The Woodlands’ – a stone dressed house hidden behind towering pines – is proof that the best things are worth waiting for.
The home built in 1955 can only be reached via a long gently winding private drive that starts with electronic gates and ends in complete privacy on some 5.4 bore-fed acres, just moments from Aldgate and Stirling villages.
Similar to something out of a fairytale, the 3-bedroom, split level home introduces itself with charming authority atop a hill. Surrounded by the pines is an established garden with camellias, Japanese maples, rhododendrons and a stone walled pond providing a truly magical setting.
And so it’s no surprise this charming character filled home saves the best aspects for the main level living zone with combustion fireplace, exposed sandstone walls, timber paneling and expansive windows. A modern fully equipped kitchen overlooks the dining area with a bay-window to uninterrupted views of the park-like grounds.
A few subtle steps up to one bedroom and you are amongst the tree tops. A few steps down to another bedroom boasting its own ensuite and external access – making it a prized catch for a teenager or a superb master bedroom.
A carport doubles up as a year-round alfresco entertainer to soak in the tranquility.
More reasons why we love this home:
– Very good quality bore with 3-phase power (1000 gallons/hr, 353ppm)
– Efficient split A/C, slow combustion fire, and gas heating
– Large (23sqm) barn-style shed/garage with power
– Combined 30,000 of rainwater storage (including underground tank)
– Chicken coop
– Septic system
– NBN connected
– Large gardeners shed
– Home to koalas and a variety of bird species
– Just a short drive from the freeway and just 20-minutes’ drive from the CBD
– Close to a range of quality schools, including Aldgate and Stirling East Primary Schools
– And so much more
