Nestled in amongst established tall gums on just under an acre in a small rural community on the outskirts of a bustling regional city, Axedale was the perfect location for this family to recreate a colonial farm house of a bygone era. At first glance this home appears to have been there forever. Uncomplicated in design, the home boasts a traditional style large entrance hall opening up onto a formal living space and master bedroom, serviced by an ensuite and walk in robe. From the entry you can see through a cleverly positioned window to the rear of the home and the paddocks beyond.
