"Crystal Hill" is the name of this beautiful property, consisting of 16 acres (approx.) of land gently sloping down to the red-gum lined Bet Bet creek, with 360° views from the residence, glorious sunsets to the west and vistas across rolling farmland on the northern horizon. The eastern windows catch the sunrise over farmland, often golden with canola or grain crops. Stands of stately eucalypts to the south shield the property from southerly winds, as does the boomerang shape of the dwelling, wide shady verandas give wonderful protection in the sunny climate, and provide delightful alfresco options.
The dwelling is a spacious 26 squares (approx.) of living space, with a further 14 squares (approx.) of verandas, built of double red-blue semi-clinker brick giving wonderful insulation. The southern wing consists of expansive master bedroom, with ensuite, walk-in robe, split system and a sliding door onto the veranda and pool deck. The other three bedrooms are spacious, two with built-in robes, looking out onto a courtyard with shady stately eucalypts. Further out is the fenced-off horse paddock and dam.
Opposite the three secondary bedrooms is a study, bathroom and separate shower room. A conveniently-placed hand-basin is part of the eastern entrance hall, with toilet, laundry and craft room.
The front entrance at the northern wing, opens to a generous lounge room featuring an open fireplace with wood storage and large hearth. The second door from the hallway opens to a large L-shaped living and dining area, with split system and Norseman wood fire, with cleverly- designed drying cupboard above. The kitchen sits inside the L-shape, with handy bench-height dishwasher, electric and wood stoves and walk-in pantry, plenty of room for fridge and freezer, as well as generous bench and cupboard space.
This beautiful property is off a quiet no-through traffic country lane, only a 12 minute country drive to the well-appointed regional centre of Maryborough. An hour to either Ballarat or Bendigo, and just over two hours to Melbourne.
