More and more City and suburban dwellers are making a comfortable and convenient move to relaxed country living.

The ability to sell their existing residential property for a significant price and replace it with a small acreage, or a significant township property in a strong regional centre for significantly less is now an increasingly attractive option.

The remaining often significant balance of the realised funds can be applied in many ways from investment or superannuation top ups, to support for younger family members often seeking their first home, or just to add to personal comfort.

Rodwells Ruralco Property has listed for private sale a substantial custom-built family home in the strong regional town of Kerang in northern Victoria that can be considered the best quality modern home in a town which offers everything from strong retail and commercial services to many recreational attractions, with an active local community.

The home at 89-91 Wellington Street Kerang is for private sale at $799,000 and is to enable lifelong residents Bill and Faye Dalzell to retire and to fulfil some long-held travel plans.

The vendors are lifelong residents of the town who for many years operated a successful transport business, now sold.

The home built in 2004 has an area under roof of about 42 squares providing four bedrooms, the main with comprehensive en-suite facilities, a large family bathroom, two additional powder rooms, large open plan living spaces divided by a bar, plus an array of comfort options with high quality furnishings and fittings throughout.

For instance, the unique curved kitchen area has an extra-large oven, space for a double fridge, a walk-in pantry and an island bench.

Other services include a ducted vacuum system, while the home designed by them for their retirement, took account of any potential future needs with all spaces having a high disability easy access factor, including wider door openings, ramped access areas and appliances that suit.

In floor heating plus evaporative air-conditioning and gas log fire provide personal comfort as well.

Built in specially made sandstone brick and located on a double block and situated in the best residential area of the town, the vendors created their own building and design plan before engaging renown builders J G King to execute the project.

Of course, their plans included a ten metre by five metre inground salt water self functioning outdoor swimming pool with an adjoining entertaining area that includes a full outdoor kitchen and a Bali Hut for relaxing.

With its extensive street frontage from the single title land area of more than 1500 square metres the property set in a stylish lawned garden sits opposite the local Atkinson Park that offers excellent recreational facilities including the public swimming pool.

Within easy walking distance is the public library, the two major supermarkets, with the Kerang Sporties bowling club and bistro being also within easy reach.

Rodwells Ruralco Property selling agent Tanya Harvey says that the offer of 89-91 Wellington Street Kerang for private sale offers a real opportunity for a family wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of City living.

“I judge this home with its exceptional scale and resources to be on offer for significantly under its replacement cost.

“The vendors put a lot of thought into its design and their choice of features like double glazed and tinted windows and doors throughout so the custom-built factor prevails.

“89 Wellington Street Kerang is certainly not an off the plan home with the bonus of significant enjoyment potential.

“I believe a great choice of living and lifestyle in a strong regional town with numerous attractions of the Murray Valley close by is on offer here and represents very attractive value at the offered price of $799,000”.
