Rural living meets luxury style in this impressive Coatesville home

Bayleys Real Estate, Albany

Located on 1.7ha of pristine Coatesville land, 79 Wake Road was constructed just one year ago and is an example of contemporary rural luxury at its consummate best.

The current owners built the home and lived with their young children in the cottage onsite during the process. They’ve grown to love the sense of community Coatesville offers, with its local primary school, cafes, dairy, reserve and pony club. The location, aspect and wonderfully private environment present the best elements of country living, while still just a 10-minute drive from both Albany and Riverhead.

A classic timber electric gate opens into the vast estate, where a sweeping driveway arrives up to the sprawling one-level residence. Rustic-style, dark board and batten construction helps it to blend in with the natural setting, with the design incorporating a dramatic chimney. For added peace of mind, the home was built with a 10-Year Master Builders Guarantee.

Inside, voluminous, open spaces are perfect for relaxed family living and entertaining. Polished concrete floors are hardwearing and easy to clean and are complemented with a neutral modern wall palette brightened with feature light fittings throughout. Large picture windows and many sets of glass stackers showcase the dazzling rural views, as well as flood the rooms with natural light and all day sun. A 3m stud in the main living room, along with a 2.7m stud throughout, enhance the feeling of space.The kitchen is at the heart of the home and has black stone bench tops, a breakfast bar, Belling oven and huge scullery. The lounge and dining area are on one side, warmed in winter by the gas fireplace, while the formal lounge/ media room is on the other. A large white barn door slides open to access this room, which has a projector and speakers built-in for enjoying movies and sports.

A LouvreTec canopy above the central outdoor living area is perfect for managing sun and shade, while the in-ground swimming pool complex makes for fantastic summer entertaining. Flat lawns and mature trees frame the property, while hobby paddocks below are ready for animals.

There’s another separate living room beside the front door, which makes the ideal kids’ playroom due to its proximity to the kitchen. A guest bedroom with ensuite is located in its own wing, which has been set up to give visitors a good sense of separation and privacy. The office, separate laundry and internal access to the carpeted triple garage and workshop are also located in this area.

The remaining accommodation is located in the other wing, with three bedrooms serviced by the main bathroom and separate toilet. The master retreat enjoys wonderful views over the countryside and has a large dressing room and ensuite. Features like a sophisticated home automation system and ducted central heating make life as convenient and comfortable as possible.

The white weatherboard cottage on the property has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an independent office. It’s completely separate from the main residence so is the ideal accommodation for extended family, or a means to garner excellent rental income.

This is rural living at its best, without sacrificing city conveniences.
