At a glance:

Sandstone, Cedar, and brick are the materials of choice for this stunning acreage home, and they've been utilised masterfully to create a floor plan that's bursting with character and flooded with natural light.

"We really love the tranquillity the property offers inside and out – from the vast, landscaped gardens with wildlife to the pond which has ducks come to visit. The high ceilings throughout the home give the opportunity for natural light to flow through each room. Colony Close really is the best spot in Medowie for its streetscape and peacefulness."

The property:

Sitting on a sheltered acreage in leafy Medowie, this charming 4-bedroom home is a residential oasis that's teeming with birdlife, fruit trees, and veggie gardens, suiting both large-block downsizers and big families with bigger dreams.

The current owners have adored their time here, giving special mention to the tranquillity created by the vast, landscaped gardens, the abundance of wildlife, and watching the resident ducks enjoying the large pond.

Moving between the tall eucalypts and established gardens of the main driveway feels like you're on the way to a bushland holiday retreat, and the undercover veranda at the front of the home creates a peaceful spot for enjoying a morning coffee while listening to the birdlife.

Through the ornate cedar front door lies the high ceilings of the formal entrance, which is filled with timeless character, including original woolshed timber flooring, stained glass pendant lighting, and an exposed brick feature wall.

The well-appointed master bedroom sits to the left of this space, offering sleep-in-friendly western and northern windows, a built-in robe, and an elegant ensuite.

Bedrooms two through to four follow on from the master, each with timber floorboards and views of the surrounding garden. Bedroom four also benefits from direct access to the leafy views of the rear verandah.

A spacious lounge area sits opposite the master bedroom, bearing the same timeless character while offering an open-face fireplace for warmth and ambience during the colder months, and sliding door access to the front verandah for those spring and summer breezes.

Timber floorboards give way to terracotta tiles in the traditional eat-in kitchen, which offers ample American Western Red Cedar cabinetry and shelving divided by laminate countertops; room-width windows to keep the space bright; and quality chrome appliances.

The kitchen's thoughtful location and triple entrances offer convenient access to both the formal lounge and dining, as well as the second living and dining areas. Its impressive size leaves room for an eight-seater country kitchen table – freeing up the formal dining space for a multitude of other uses.

The beautiful, panelled Cathedral ceiling in the living room in the centre of the home with its arched window above the French doors and bay window, creates a stunning and peaceful aesthetic overlooking the natural pond. The living room has direct access to the kitchen, the rear verandah, and the sunny courtyard providing excellent opportunities for indoor/outdoor entertaining.

Through the northeast glass doors sits a paved courtyard that's flanked by gardens and surrounded by trees, creating a private space for romantic evenings, summer family meals, and outdoor events with room for all the plus-ones and extras.

The double garage provides space for both daily driver and weekend cruiser, while a separate garden shed offers room to keep all the tools, toys, and tents out of the way and in from the weather.

The remainder of the level block – which includes a water fountain and tranquil pond to account for the rich avian presence – offers an abundance of space and serenity that won't burden its occupants with unmanageable maintenance expectations.

With a gorgeous build, an expansive tree-lined backdrop, and an abundance of natural wildlife, the idyllic acreage of Colony Close is a unique property and a welcoming home.
