Lifestyle beauty: 22 Ochiltree Court, Romsey 3434

By Carole Levy

On about 3.56 hectares, with established gardens and sweeping lawns, this beautifully revamped brick-and-concrete residence shows style and substance at every turn.

With deep verandahs wrapping two sides, as well as a fab pool, a firepit area and timber deck taking in spectacular views towards Mt Crystal, the house has a shmick kitchen and gorgeous bathrooms, with other spaces living up to their quality.

The kitchen has abundant cabinetry in a glossy mid-grey, a french-door corner pantry, Caesarstone benches and Neff and Bosch underbench ovens, 900mm electric cooktop and a dishwasher.

The adjoining family-meals area, with gorgeous large-format Italian floor tiles and a wood heater, has a glass slider to the back verandah and pool area beyond.

As well as a study/fourth bedroom, there are three fitted and carpeted bedrooms, each with grey roman blinds. The main has a walk-in robe and en suite, while the main bathroom is sleek and chic with an oval freestanding tub and a bowl-basin atop a stone floating vanity – as well as those pearl-grey Italian floor tiles. The separate toilet adjoins a good-sized laundry.

The surrounding land has rich red soil and a large trout-stocked dam. No chemicals have been used on the property since the current owner came on board nine years ago, and there are three water tanks (town water is connected) and a reticulated water system to keep vegie gardens, wicking beds and heritage fruit trees thriving.

The property also has a superb chook pen, an open-bay shed and yard, and five stock paddocks – four with troughs. A double garage and two carports are final notes on a true country lifestyle gem.
