Imagine a place where you could create your ideal lifestyle, a place where there is a myriad of lifestyle choices and decisions to make. Imagine a place where you can walk in the forest and listen to the sounds of nature. A place you can raise cattle or fruit, or just raise a glass to the bounty of nature. The choice is really yours & 44 Birdwood Lane just offers you the choice.
The property, located off a private road just six minutes from the thriving hub of Cooroy, is sensational: jaw dropping views, prime pasture waiting to fatten up cattle and a lovely, cool, calm and inviting house that offers family living on its upper level and Airbnb possibilities in the contemporary quarters (with tiled entertainer's poolside area) downstairs.
Exceptionally well designed and beautifully maintained, this western red cedar home is everything you could want in a home. Its rooms sparkle with light. It has two open plan areas, each with polished hardwood floors, sliding glass doors leading to an L-shaped verandah and big picture windows. One is an informal living room with built-in cupboards off a sleek kitchen. At this end of the house, there are three queensize bedrooms with BIRs and views. They share a family bathroom with elevated bath, shower, vanity and separate WC.
The kitchen is very attractive with white 2pac cupboards and soft close drawers, stone island bench/breakfast bar and benchtops, a soft blue glass splashback, electric oven (gas top), dishwasher and roomy walk-in pantry.
Beyond the kitchen is a second, more formal lounge with a high, vaulted, insulated white ceiling and a dining room with french doors opening on to a gorgeous garden plateau and contemplation pavilion. The private master suite is lovely: airy with louvres, garden views, a stylish ensuite with vanity, shower and glass fronted built-in robe. It opens on to the wide verandah.
Downstairs is a sophisticated, self-contained one-bedroom apartment - ideal for in-laws, visitors, rental or Airbnb. It is truly beautiful with an ensuite bathroom and spacious lounge leading out on to a tiled terrace ideal for dining and entertaining. Beyond is the sparkling saltwater lagoon pool and gorgeous green hillsides.
The property will never run out of water. It has a small dam, the huge spring-fed dam which feels more like a lake and four tanks holding approx. 40,000 gallons of rainwater. There is a large 10 x 10m shed and scope to fatten or agist cattle (although the beautifully landscaped gardens and divine Kensington Pride mango orchard and tropical fruit trees might make you think twice about this option).
This exceptional property, painted outside in the soothing tones of Dulux Seaweed accented by stained western red cedar and white throughout inside, offers absolute privacy, beauty and a magical sense of place yet is only minutes from town. Inspection is a must.
