At the end of a circular drive sits this architecturally designed, passive solar North facing executive style family home in historic Beechworth. On a generous 4,900m2 (approx.) lifestyle allotment only 1.5km to the centre of town, this home offers the very best of sustainable modern country living. Upon entry you are greeted by a vast open plan living space and a view to the lush green yard, with white square set walls, polished concrete and stack-able sliding glass doors opening onto a wide vine covered verandah. The undercover outdoor seating area with spotted gum highlights adds warmth and tear-round flexibility. The centrepiece of the kitchen is the enormous Ceasar Stone island bench which provides the perfect space to talk with the family or entertain guests as you prepare for the evening's meal courtesy of the Bosch stainless steel appliances, soft close kitchen cabinetry and large walk in pantry. The meals area allows for a large number of guests and flows into the informal lounge area centred around a dual sided Chiminees Philippe convertable open fire place and wood heater. Another cosy lounge area sits on the other side of the fire place and benefits from floor to ceiling double glazed windows allowing ample natural light. The parents retreat is located on the eastern end of the home and features the main bedroom, walk in robe and beautifully appointed ensuite. Adjacent to the main bedroom is the fourth bedroom or study. Bedrooms two and three have their own zone at the opposing end of the home via a long corridor which also accesses the guests' powder room, main bathroom with shower, vanity, third toilet and separate bath. The laundry is also nearby with storage galore as is the external access door to the carport. Outside there's ample space for the kids to enjoy a healthy country life, or even a pool. The property is serviced by town water but also boasts a water tank, orchard, veggie garden beds, watering systems, double carport and a double lock up garage. Excellent thermal mass keeps family zones cool during the warm months.There is a real sense of home here with a calming quality you'll want to get home early from work for.
