Mittagong in NSW is about 90-minutes south of Sydney, just off the Hume Highway, with a rail line direct to Sydney for commuters. The home at 5 Murchison Street in Mittagong is a chance to buy not only a very beautiful home but a lifestyle opportunity for a tree change in the Southern Highlands.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home sits on the slopes of Mount Gibraltar and overlooks Mount Alexandra from the north-facing windows, with a striking grey-blue facade and white trim. The home is set in lush established gardens, paved and landscaped to perfection, with established trees, gardens and hedges.
The interior of the home is as attractive as the exterior, and there is plenty of room for the family, with a separate, purpose-built home office and multiple living areas.
The home is set over two levels, a lower floor which houses the guest accommodation, home office and a bathroom, and the upper floor with the master bedroom, two further bedrooms, a family room, a formal lounge and dining room, and the kitchen, laundry and family bathroom.
The front door of the home opens into a foyer, with the formal lounge on the right, and the short hallway to the bedrooms on the left.
The kitchen has an electric cooktop and oven, a walk-in pantry, and can be accessed either from the formal dining room or the family room and is ready for the home chef to create good food and conversation at the peninsula bench, which will become the heart of the home, creating a connection point for family and friends during food preparation.
The formal dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and has white plantation shutters which keep the room light and bright, a characteristic repeated throughout the home. North-facing windows flood the open-plan rooms with light, and neutral tones in the interior are accented with feature walls throughout.
There is a slow combustion stove in the family room, which will be warm and cosy on winter nights, while the family room opens onto the covered deck. Overlooking the trees, it’s an ideal spot to sit with a glass of wine and a cheese platter in the evening after dinner.
The master bedroom, if you choose to use the upper floor option, has built-in robes and an ensuite, and is very spacious. It has a stylish soft grey feature wall and a picture window overlooking the lush garden.
There is also a private entrance to the guest accommodation on the lower level, which would also make an ideal retreat or teenager’s hangout. All bedrooms in the home have built-in robes, and there is plenty of storage room under the staircase. The family bathroom has a frameless glass shower and a roll-top bath, with floor-to-ceiling tiles creating a spa-like ambience for luxuriating at the end of the day in a hot bath.
Raine and Horne Southern Highlands sales agent Brendan Watson said the home has upgraded ducted heating and cooling, which runs off the new solar and battery system in addition to the slow combustion stove.
“This home would be a great family home,” said Mr Watson, “with a fantastic backyard for the kids to run around. There’s a custom-built cubbyhouse and a playground with a swing set.
“The home has raised veggie gardens and a chook yard, and there’s access to the rear of the property, where there are multiple storage sheds. Any family would be comfortable in this home, and Mittagong is a great place to live.”
The home is set on a 2757 square metre block and is only three minutes from the railway station and Hume Highway for commuters.
