GRAND DESIGN IDEAS
A delightfully designed and strikingly built home on a small farm holding of 40 acres (approx), at Trawool in the Upper Goulburn Valley.
The property known as Bimbadeen has multiple features that will strike a chord with a family or a couple seeking a full or part time lifestyle change to a scenic, yet easily accessible location.
The main structural elements of Bimbadeen are the striking rammed earth walls constructed by one of Australia's foremost exponents of the craft, with timber framing and distinctive Colorbond steel cladding for the rest of the building.
The home has an area under roof of 350 square metres providing four bedrooms, inclusive of a self-contained parent's retreat of 36 sqm, with two bathrooms plus a powder room provided for guests.
The high ceiling heights also impart a feeling of spaciousness, while the double- sided fireplace between the lounge and kitchen-dining area makes another statement of comfort.
Unusual timbers provide a range of features throughout including the large mango timber slab that forms the island bench top in the kitchen which also has concrete benches in the working areas.
High quality appliances are also installed.
There is an lpg boiler powered hydronic heating system which helps maintain the cosiness of the house on winter's coldest night.
The home has double-glazed windows with natural air flows giving the cross breezes which circulate through the building.
The property is connected to town water while rainwater runoff is also collected into 75,000 litres of tank storage.
The property also has a greywater treatment system using the toilet and laundry flows that provides the irrigation resource for the impressive established garden in which the home is set.
Other features include a security coded gate entry and a long entrance driveway defined by multiple Manchurian Pear trees that are now very well established.
Also on the property is a set of steel cattle yards, a hay shed, plus a large valley catchment dam which allows the running of cows and calves on productive pastures with little need for supplementary feeding.
Another building is a steel framed dual roller door structure with self-contained services originally built as a six car garage and workshop that is likely to be ideal for overflow visitors, short stay or teenager accommodation or as a studio. It has town water connected.
If there is a need to commute to the city for work there is an easy drive down the Hume Freeway or catching the trains at Tallarook or Seymour railway stations, each only a ten-minute drive away and providing multiple daily services to Southern Cross with about a ninety-minute journey.
Bimbadeen at Trawool is a striking, well designed and superbly located home on an acreage property where the new owner can continue to graze cattle, introduce almost any type of livestock and simply relax and take in the views!
