Neatly tucked into the outskirts of Littlehampton on a manageable couple of acres, this property has been created and nurtured to become the desirable dwelling that could become your next home. It has a welcoming facade and is surrounded by water wise, established gardens featuring attractive stone walls and meandering paths. The majestic gum in the front garden is an outstanding feature tree and is far enough away from the home to be appreciated in all its glory.
Enter into a home that has been built and designed with the environment in mind. Using solar passive principles, the north south aspect maximises the winter sun and the verandahs and heavy duty canvas blinds minimise the heat from the sun in the height of summer. The soft, comfortable cork flooring is quiet underfoot and easy to care for. The high ceilings and large cedar windows combine to create a living space that is filled with natural light. The open plan kitchen, meals and living room with its relaxed ambience, will undoubtedly become the hub of the home. French doors guide you to the outdoor deck suited to all weather occasions with its blinds adding comfort and shelter in the cooler months. The roof of the pergola has also been lined with sisalation to keep it cooler during summer time. The second living zone could be utilised as a music or reading room, a study, a work room or 5th bedroom if needed - you choose. The main bedroom boasts floor to ceiling built in robes, a ceiling fan, sliding door access to the return verandah and an ensuite bathroom. Bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 are also located in this end of the home. The family bathroom features a claw foot bath, corner shower recess and vanity - ample room for the kid's bath time fun. A separate toilet is sensibly located adjacent to the bathroom. The laundry accesses the rear verandah. A very large storeroom and linen press provide good storage options.
The 4.3kW capacity solar system keeps the power bills to a minimum and the 90,000L of rainwater services the house (apart from the toilets). The property can be switched over to mains if necessary. The solar hot water service also helps to reduce power consumption. The fully insulated roof features R3.8 batts and the dual “mill roof vents” also assist in keeping the house cool during summer. Early on in their ownership of 52 Fulford Terrace, the vendors friends gave them a huge number of young trees. These have been planted as a wood lot in the back paddock and keep the property's wood supply going all year round. They include, Flooded Gums, Sugar Gums, SA Blue Gums and numerous red gums. A produce rich veggie garden together with a chicken run and an orchard full of peaches, apricot, nectarine, pear and apple trees means your trips to the shops are reduced, hence a lower carbon footprint can be achieved. A double shed (with 3 Phase power if needed) is known as the Man Cave. There's plenty of room for boat and/or van storage with space for a workbench and tools. Heaven!!!!
The home is located within the ever popular Littlehampton Primary School catchment area and the kids could even enjoy the luxury of walking to school through the picturesque, quiet streets.
If you are seeking a small acreage property just a short 35 minutes from the city with an emphasis on sustainable living then it would be a good idea to arrange to view this home...You may find it suits your needs perfectly. I'm looking forward to showing you through.
