Auction Location: On-Ste
Within a prized, semi-rural setting and poised for elegant summer entertaining, ‘Fairways’ welcomes family and guests in style with its northeast-facing living areas, wraparound terraces, sparkling pool and barbecue pavilion and sanctuary-inspired landscape. Boasting beautiful lawns, idyllic garden rooms and exceptional privacy, this renovated residence and prime, town water acreage has mountain views, multi-car accommodation and approved plans for the construction of a full-size tennis court. Elevated and exclusive, this community-minded locale is near schools and shops, the Brookfield Showgrounds and General Store and is only 14km from the CBD.
From the street, the hardwood post and rail fence and tree-lined driveway give little away. What unfolds are carefully planned, immaculately maintained gardens with the imposing residence and its subtle Mediterranean design perched prominently at the highest point.
A well-constructed, double brick home offering immense versatility for families of all ages, each level features generous, open-plan living and media rooms, bedroom accommodation and study areas and wide, covered outdoor spaces for table games and long-table dining.
Decorative, hand-forged wrought-iron entrance doors and balustrades elevate the home’s grand style, with the feature carrying through to the internal staircase. Whether up or down, the interiors, adjoining terraces and wide, hardwood external stairs connect with ease to the resort-style pavilion and timber-top bar seating area and the inviting, light aqua-blue waters of the classic, rectangle-shaped pool.
An ideal north-south orientation ensures that the home welcomes flow through breezes, with the tiled ground floor remaining typically cool and comfortable during the warmer months. Upper-level living areas have ducted air-conditioned and polished hardwood timber floors, an L-shaped lounge, media and dining, a Miele and Siemens appointed kitchen with shaker-style cabinetry and a breakfast room.
Three bedrooms grace this upper floor with another two on the lower level plus an office providing quiet spaces for studying teenagers, guest accommodation and work-from-home solutions.
The master bedroom is situated at one end of the home and, with its elevated corner position, captures scenic views towards the mountain ranges of Upper Brookfield and Mount Crosby. Renovated recently, the ensuite features marble-look floor-to-ceiling tiles, a walk-in rainshower and an outlook over the lawns, a towering specimen tree, hedges and rose garden. A bathroom on each level provides convenient amenities with a powder room additionally on the upper floor.
Serene and simply stunning, the home and gardens are ideally secluded from neighbouring properties, with the photo-worthy 10,117m2 estate having had all the hard work done with the plants now very well established. The kids will love kicking a ball around on the vast expanses of grass, playing on the fort or in the cubby house, running around with the family dog, collecting eggs and having picnics under large shade trees in any number of delightful settings.
Parking for all the family’s and visitors’ cars and trailers has been well considered. In addition to the oversized double garage, there is a two-car shed with one side fully lined having great art studio potential, wide driveway parking immediately outside the garage and a convenient turnaround area for exiting vehicles.
A recent inclusion to further improve the home’s solar efficiency is a new 10kW rooftop panel and inverter system that, together with battery storage for any unused generated electricity, has markedly reduced total energy expenditure. The approved plans for the north-south tennis court design will be provided to the new owners.
The best of both worlds, Brookfield has proximity to much-needed amenities and a relaxed country feel that its residents adore. Drop the kids at the local school then meet with friends for coffee at Wild Canary Bistro, shop for exquisite garden décor and plants and collect a market bunch of fresh flowers all within the beautiful grounds of Brookfield Gardens.
