Brandy Hill 18 Merindah Close
Merindah Lodge - Home among the gumtrees!
Yes, it's a cliche, but a beautiful and peaceful environment to live.
This purpose built home for a large family and or in-laws is constructed with brick and timber in mind, virtually no painting, so if you love environmentally friendly building products and "the look", this could be for you. It's low maintenance inside and out, easy to live in, reflecting a relaxed and calming harmony of the brick and timber.
At the entrance of the home (which has a lovely warm, northerly aspect) there is a sizeable entrance area.
To the right of the entrance is a supersize living/lounge room with a lovely warm, glowing log fire combustion heater for your winter comfort.
There are sliding doors at the rear of this large room to rear balcony which catches the cooling summer breezes as well as the north aspect large windows at the front.
This main, everyday living room has entrance to the kitchen and dining area with sliding doors also to the rear verandah. The kitchen is something very modern but country, warm and appealing, ample drawers, cupboards, huge walk-in pantry, room for two fridges, large cooktop, oven and rangehood, double sink, overhead cupboards and a nice aspect looking out over the dining room with views to paddocks behind.
If we go back to the front door, to the left at the front are two sunny bedrooms, with built-in robes, one is actually extra large and will take two beds, the third bedroom down the hallway, plus the large, well set out main threeway bathroom. Then there is the main bedroom, ensuite and walk-in robe at the rear of the home.
We can then (from the front entrance area) go downstairs to "another home", in size. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom, study area, wine cellar, plus room for storage and further cellar under the house as well. Then there is this "monstrous" living area, entertainment for the whole family and friends etc. Room enough for a full size pool table, plus living, plus lounge, the ideal rumpus room for everyone. Doors to an outside covered verandah area, BBQ etc. With a lovely east aspect, morning sun and cool on a summers afternoon.
There is a large double garage with internal access to the home. It can actually take four small cars. There is an extremely high roof space enough for a full mezanine floor area.
"Merindah Lodge" is situated in a quiet culdesac, approximately 10 minutes to Raymond Terrace Shopping Centre, 30-40 minutes to Nelson Bay and Port Stephens, and Newcastle, 15 minutes to Sydney Freeway or Maitland.
All in all, this is a truly unique home, which will suit a variety of families for all sorts of reasons.
The land is flat and level, no gardens if you don't like gardening, if you do, it's a blank canvas so you can really get carried away.
