Magnificent Country EstateSet on five acres in an exclusive cul de sac location in the beautiful Sunninghill part of Broughton Vale, "Triskaideka" features sweeping escarpment and rural views and every amenity for a relaxed and refined rural lifestyle.
Built in 2010, the modern country style home features polished timber floors throughout, wide verandahs and a northern aspect with glorious rural vistas.
The airy, open interiors include four spacious bedrooms (main with walk-in robe and ensuite) with bedroom four currently used as home office. The formal lounge and dining areas are separated by a double-sided fireplace and built-in joinery while the master chef-worthy kitchen is beautifully appointed with stone benchtops, Miele appliances, a huge walk-in pantry and ample cupboard space. There is also a casual family room, large main bathroom, laundry with adjoining mudroom and ducted air-conditioning throughout.
Outside, a flagstoned area with a built-in barbecue, pizza oven and firepit stands ready for outdoor entertaining in style throughout most of the year.
The current owners planted over 400 trees, added a dam and created magnificent Mediterranean gardens where there were originally bare paddocks. They also divided the property into three paddocks suitable for a few sheep, some alpacas or a horse, added a large 10mx10m shed with a 5m x 10m awning and an "11-star" enclosed chook shed and run.
Wander through the cottage garden to a fully enclosed vegetable garden with raised garden beds and established citrus and other fruit trees.
Added to the property just last year is a delightful modern one-bedroom guest cottage with air-conditioning and a slow combustion fire. Nestled next to bushland, the cottage features concertina doors opening from the living area and bedrooms and a large bathroom with separate bath and glorious bushland outlook through a floor to ceiling glass window. There is also an alfresco entertaining area and undercover parking for guests.
"We bought a weekender in the Berry area in 2003," says the current owner, "and grew to love the area so much we decided to move here permanently. We absolutely adore everything about this place, from the beautiful house to the birdsong. When we bought the land, I had two dreams. One was to wake up in our bed looking out to the east towards the escarpment and adjoining farm, the other was to look out on bushland from my study.
"There are days we just don't leave the property and just potter around. Other days I go bike riding then have coffee in Berry afterwards. It's a very peaceful lifestyle. We worked hard here for a number of years but you come to realise once you live somewhere like this that if you look after the land it will give its magnifiance back."
