Luxurious Rural Retreat

57 Sutherlands Road, Halswell


Property ID: PI69284

5 2 3 4

Offering a lifestyle that gives you all the space, seclusion and serenity of rural living, while remaining just 10 minutes from the city, is just the start of the list of desirable features of this substantial and luxurious home.

Set on 5149 square metres of land in Halswell, with a reserve opposite, and Halswell Quarry nearby, this is a property that comes with an enormous amount of possible future gains with its subdivision potential of seven sites.

Built for our current owners by Wayne Murray Builders in 2009, with Ingrid Geldof designed bathrooms and kitchen, this classically styled home incorporates extensive glazing to maximise its north-west facing aspect. As a single-level build, the home offers future proofing and a great deal of flexibility.

The multiple living areas, formal and informal, and a well-appointed kitchen, finished in engineered stone, have all been put to good use by the owners over the years. Both the living and dining spaces open to a large hardwood deck and the vast, landscaped grounds beyond, as does the main bedroom, which has two walk-in-wardrobes and a well-appointed ensuite. Four other bedrooms are serviced by a modern central bathroom with a separate shower for those busy mornings.

An impressive list of inclusions with under tile and ducted heating, a separate laundry, internal access four car garaging, three bay shed, established veggies gardens, numerous fruit trees and impressive additional parking for boats, caravans and more, this property is as practical as it is aesthetically impressive. This has to be the ultimate private sanctuary, with a high degree of luxury, comfort and space to spare!

Those who want it all, with the absolute bonus of a future windfall through the subdividable land, need to look no further.
