NEWSTEAD - 2 Maclaren Road

Serene Bush Setting on the Edge of Town

Situated in a quiet rural position on the edge of Newstead township is this warm and friendly five bedroom rammed earth and mud brick home on approximately 1.9 HA or 4.5 acres. With generous proportions and high ceilings the home is spacious and light and sits in a beautiful and fruitful garden.

Downstairs consists of the large family kitchen with jarrah benchtops, dining area, walk in pantry, service areas, family bathroom, two w.cā€™s and the central living room ā€“ heated by a large wood heater with a water jacket to back up the solar HWS during winter. There are two roomy bedrooms on this level, both with peaceful garden outlooks, one with a gas heater and a third bedroom or home office with its own entrance ā€“ just perfect for someone who wants to run a home based business.

Upstairs is a mezzanine that functions as a casual lounge area with large bedrooms at either end. Both of these airy rooms feature timber lined ceilings, storage nooks and lovely windows to make the most of the leafy views. A shady front verandah runs across the front of the home overlooking the tranquil bush setting. At the rear of the home is the covered alfresco and BBQ area.

Totally off the grid, the solar system has 12 new gel batteries and a backup generator for cloudy days. The home is on town water but also has 6 water tanks of various sizes allowing the owner to grow their own produce: there is a vegetable garden, asparagus bed, berry patch, home orchard and many extra fruit and nut trees dotted around the property. Species include almond, walnut and hazelnuts, boysenberries, raspberries, apples, cherries, nectarines, pears and more.

There are two chook houses and runs. The home is fenced into a house yard that also contains a shed for the generator and garden implements. There is a fenced pony paddock, a smaller fenced yard, and a fenced dam.

A barn style garage is accessed from the circular driveway and comprises two vehicle parking bays, a storage mezzanine and plenty of room for a workbench. One side has been fully insulated and lined with a timber ceiling and carpeted floor. This has its own gas heater and can be used as a studio, extra bedroom or another home office. The home is connected to the NBN.
Perfect for a family who want to live a sustainable lifestyle, this home offers peace and tranquillity with all the advantages of being walking distance to the amenities of the town.
