The master bedroom boasts a built-in robe (97 years old), large ensuite, split system air conditioning, ceiling fan and a kitchenette. Access to the verandah is via the kitchenette. The master bedroom and its facilities have previously been rented and can be treated as separate from the rest of the home.


Bedroom 2 is also very large and features a large built-in robe and ceiling fan. Access to both these bedrooms is not only via the external stairs, bur also the original internal stairs from the family room.


Bedroom 3 is downstairs and features a walk-in robe and a split system reverse cycle air conditioner. Bedroom 4 is accessible either via the games room or front verandah.


At the rear of the home the modern extension offers the large lounge/dining area. The original stone work of the back wall provides a wonderful feature and lends to the atmosphere of the living area. Fully carpeted and air conditioned completing this area.
