Patterned on the inviting good looks of Hampton’s properties, ‘Arbordale’ is a charismatic home set in an idyllic mix of canopied trees, green lawns and fronted by an azure-blue swimming pool.
The 333-square-metre residence at 11 Sylvia Street in Murrumbateman boasts four bedrooms, including a master suite with upgraded ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and French door access to a garden patio.
The family bathroom with its separate toilet has also been completely upgraded to harmonise with the stylish persona of the home.
The main open-plan kitchen, dining and living area is a statement in tactile elegance.
If you like a kitchen where the flavours are in the set-up as well as the food, you’ll love this one. Partitioned from the rest of the room by a large timber-topped island bench with its own wine fridge, the kitchen has stone benchtops, French cafe style white tile splashbacks, a stainless steel gas cooker, Dublin sink and double-sized fridge nook.
Yes, it’s straight out of a Country Life magazine.
Again, the use of visual harmony cleverly knots the look and feel of the kitchen to the rest of this wonderful living space via the use of brooding rustic timber floors, white beaded windows and panelled ceilings.
The lounge space has a stone fireplace with a built-in wood heater as its centrepiece, and you can pop out to the front alfresco area through a double set of doors.
If you like dining, there’s plenty of space for a large formal setting, and two double sets of French doors lead out to the rear pergola and barbecue.
The home also has a great office space with a built-in electric fireplace and a media room with plenty of storage.
The alfresco is the perfect spot to sit back with a coffee and take in the darting birdlife prepping their nests for the spring season or just watch the kids enjoying the swimming pool.
As the name implies, Arbordale’s superb 4.62-acre block carries a serious count of beautiful trees, but there are also sheltered areas of open paddock space for you to keep ponies and other livestock.
It’s a private block without being secluded or remote, and there’s scope to add equestrian infrastructure, more sheds, and a second dwelling to the property with relevant approvals.
Arbordale is a delightfully expressive property with enormous depths of character and no shortage of practical family benefits.
