1201 ROMSEY ROAD, HESKET
Your chance to escape the craziness of the current world and immerse yourself in a private, secluded and safe sanctuary!A rare opportunity exists to purchase this 60-hectare private woodland oasis with a remarkable example of an Arts & Craft style home. Arts & Craft designed homes were renowned for their use of fine craftsmanship which showcased the inherent beauty of the material used, the importance of nature as inspiration and in particular the use of Art glass widows which would blur the line between inside and outside. This residence ticks all the boxes with natural wooden beams displayed throughout the house and gardens, beautiful stonework, rammed earth walls, high ceilings and gorgeous window framed garden views. The beauty and serenity of the house, its location and surroundings are simply breathtaking.
The magnificent homestead is privately sited in its own valley at the end of a 1km driveway, overlooking a majestic lake of substantial size and surrounded by an elegant Teedo Beggs designed landscaped garden setting. Relax on one of the many terraces or lawn areas that overlook the lake, dip your feet in the water while dangling them from the pier, cook up some mouth-watering wood-fired pizzas in the outdoor pizza oven or be captivated by the flora and fauna when taking a walk on the forest trails. Excellent quality water supply all year round with 3 dams, bore and a Monument Creek boundary.
