45 Myrtle Forest Road, Collinsvale
Rural retreat - "Clearview" at Myrtle Forest
The term 'idyllic retreat' is often used in real estate, and this property sums up the term beautifully!
'Clearview' is a secluded rural property in the tightly held area of Collinsvale. On 2.57 hectares above the snow line in the beautiful Myrtle Forest area, this home has been lovingly tended by the same family for over 20 years.
Upon entering the property you are greeted by an abundantly landscaped garden that is full of cool climate plants, bulbs, and established trees and shrubs. The landscaping extends beyond the house yard and leads you to the enclosed garden and outdoor living areas where you can enjoy lazy afternoons in the sheltered gazebo with views back towards the village of Collinsvale.
You enter the home into the main living area which features vaulted ceilings and a spacious lounge area connected to the kitchen. This is the main space for family to congregate and the timber kitchen with breakfast bar makes it easy to prepare meals while overlooking the garden. The kitchen has expansive bench space and a large pantry area capable of housing additional freezers and plenty of additional storage.
Along the hallway is a fully renovated bathroom, complete with 2 person spa to enjoy on a cold, snowy evening.
The first double bedroom is at the end of the hall and is a large room with window seat and plenty of room for a teenage retreat, home office area or children's play space. This bedroom has windows opening onto the garden.
At the other side of the home is the parents retreat - an expansive room with an ensuite and ample storage. This room has plenty of space to add a reading nook or desk if you work from home, with a balcony entrance out to the garden. Privacy is key! The laundry is contained in the ensuite.
Upstairs is another large double bedroom with a landing overlooking the main living area. This bedroom also has lots of built-in storage and a desk and has great views out over the property from the first floor vantage point.
For the handy person of the house there is a large shed area and several smaller sheds - plenty of space for tinkering on a project.
The property has a separate building that is currently called 'The Beer Barn' - the perfect man cave or girls getaway! A rumpus room area complete with its own bar which could also be easily renovated into a granny flat (STCA) or studio art room, or anything your heart desires really. It's a very useable space away from the hustle and bustle of the main house.
Located within a short walk to Myrtle Forest Falls - a beautiful local forest walk and waterfalls, this property provides the best of all worlds if you are in the market for a tree change.
Be quick - because properties like this do not come up often!
