Stylish Country LivingA winding driveway through park like grounds, lush tree ferns and towering gums leads to the very special private property that is 'Barnaby Woods,' an elegant country home with all the refinements, finesse and classic styling that its aristocratic name suggests.
For every meticulous detail - from the ornate cornices and heritage tiling to the picturesque dormer windows and slate entry flooring, there are equally homely and warm features: timber framed French doors and windows, a toasty Saxon wood fireplace in the family room and a conservatory-style glass walled informal dining room. There's even a toasty open fire place in the formal living, complete with a wood store that can be accessed and stacked from outside (perfect after you've been chopping timber).
This is a much-loved family home where the attention to detail is impressive, as is the forest-like setting. There are four bedrooms in the main upstairs wing plus a sizeable studio above the oversized garage, which also has a store room.
Separate to this is a soaring carport, which easily houses a van or boat on a trailer. And in keeping with the excellent storage at the property, the carport even has a good-sized storage room with a keypad lock entry which perhaps could double as a wine cellar! Above this there's further open storage in a mezzanine area - taking advantage of the significant undercover vertical space.
If you work from home, have lots of visiting family, teenagers or are otherwise needing an additional room, that studio above the garage will be much appreciated, you could even consider using this space as a B&B opportunity (subject to Council approval) as there's a bathroom nearby downstairs to service this end of the house.
Only the second time sold, the property is as beautiful outside as it is in, a massive private entertaining gazebo looks out over a paved area complete with the requisite lion's head water feature and a walk around the grounds reveals rainforest style plantings such as massive Blue Quandongs and numerous Bangalow Palms.
A 20,000 gallon water tank under the gazebo floor is complemented by bore water for the garden.
Back inside, there is a choice of formal and informal living spaces, including a media zone off the family room which is the ideal spot to relax while watching a movie.
The timber kitchen is expansive with ample bench space and storage, the walk-in pantry here is the big surprise, it's deceptively large!Quality appliances include a Fisher & Paykel double drawer dishwasher, Electrolux induction cook top and Ariston Pyrolytic oven.
A formal dining room seats 10 but it would be hard to tear yourself away from the glass walled casual dining area off the kitchen, it really is a stunner.
Upstairs the four bedrooms are all Queen plus in size, three have soaring ceilings and the entire master suite has been freshly painted.
The master suite really is something special, with its beautiful outlook, sizeable walk-in wardrobe and separate cupboard with an ironing tea/coffee station. Stay cosy in bed with the ducted air conditioning throughout upstairs and enjoy your first coffee or tea for the day without leaving the room. Now that's luxury.
The ensuite has double shower heads and a double vanity, sharing definitely isn't an issue with the size of this house! Perfectly in keeping with the home's style, all the bathrooms in the house have different, beautiful heritage-style tiling choices and colours and there's also a freestanding bath in the main bathroom upstairs.
One of the premier features of this stunning property is its location, at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the stunning Boambee valley. One of Coffs Harbour's premier rural residential areas, it's approximately 4kms to Sawtell Beach from here and even less to the shops. You really do get the opportunity for tranquil country living here without compromising on urban conveniences.
This is a blue ribbon property, don't hesitate to inspect.
