Acres in Kellys Plains
98 Stoneleigh Road
Located 10 minutes from the heart of Armidale on a discreet road in the sought-after area of Kellys Plains is this wonderful family home set on 8 hectares (20 acres).
After driving up the tree lined entrance the first thing that takes your attention is the garden of well-established exotic trees leading down to a magnificent dam, which covers about 1½ acres when full. Whilst the current drought conditions are playing havoc with the dam, it takes little imagination to see youths splashing about the dam or those of us a little older sedately paddling across to the shady willows on the island. And remember, it always rains after a drought, so the dam will again be full.
As you enter the home, you are struck by the spacious living area that extends all the way to a wisteria covered pergola / patio that soaks up the northern sun and is ideal for outside entertaining. The living room itself catches ample light and winter sun from the east and north, and has stylish plantation shutters to assist in keeping the home cool in summer and warm in winter. There is in-slab electric heating in the floor, plus a wood fire; you only need one or the other operating at a time. Built about 2004, 98 Stoneleigh Road has rendered aerated concrete for external walls. Again, this provides excellent insulation for the entire home.
Around the corner from the living area is the dining area, next to the contemporary kitchen. Stainless steel gas cooktop and electric oven are set in modern cabinetry with timber bench tops.
The home has 3 bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes, and two bathrooms, including an en suite off the main bedroom. A single car garage is attached.
Nearby, a 4 bay 8 x 13 metre steel shed has ample room for your gear. A lined room at one end could be used as a studio, office or even an emergency sleep out for when visitors arrive. It is plumbed.
In addition to the dam, a bore is located to help keep the garden green. The house is supplied by rainwater stored in a tank. There is enough space to run a few head of cattle, sheep, horses or whatever may take your fancy.
To complete the country lifestyle, the 2-teacher Kellys Plains Primary School is just 3.8km down the road.
