Built to replicate a traditional Norfolk farmhouse, Lilac Cottage is a testimony to the craftsmanship of one of our district's most respected builders, a home he built as his own.
From the "eyebrow" in the roof to the exposed macrocarpa beams inside, feel the character and the charm merging with the practical features of a modern build. The meticulous attention to detail and pride is evident in every crevice and corner of the home.
Situated in the sought-after Maunu Estate on 1.55ha of land and with a floor area of 361m2, there is plenty of space. The main home is set over two levels, it has four car garaging and a guest wing above the garage with its own bathroom. The kitchen is farmhouse style with a granite island bench and hutch dressers, dishwasher, and a double Smeg oven with six burner gas hob. The dining/family room features a Wagener woodstove with wetback which creates a warm and cosy environment throughout the home. Through to the large separate lounge, there is another large woodfire with a feature fireplace. All bedrooms are upstairs. A smart vent system ensures clean fresh air throughout both levels. French doors from all living areas on the ground level offer easy access to the outdoors.
The current owners of five years have nurtured and enhanced this home including the addition of a 26000litre fibreglass swimming pool in 2019. The house has recently been painted and recarpeted. They have continued the plantings in the garden and enjoy a variety of vegetables, fruit, nut trees, and free-range eggs.
Now the call of family far away leads them to offer their home to discerning buyers who seek something a little different.
The elevated position, the prime Maunu location, good privacy, and a sunny aspect add to the many attributes this home offers.
Make it yours while you can.
