A little seclusion goes a long way. But when your two-storey family home slips to the back of an elevated, 4,740sqm botanical oasis, you really won't mind...
Because along the way you'll pass geese and ducks, a pond with pontoon, towering gums, silver birches and a secret garden - a natural ecosystem a few steps closer to rural than to Lobethal's centre.
And it's picture-perfection.
Imposing yet inviting at the same time, the home's appeal is its aspect, angled to draw the most of its sanctuary with a wrapped balcony giving multiple living zones the brunt of these beautiful views.
Ever walked into a room and forgotten why? The upstairs living and meals area with romantic, pitched timber slatted ceilings, Colonial windows, French doors, cosy combustion fire and those views - will do it to you every time.
As kitchen sophistication contrasts the warmth adding whitewashed timber against stainless appliances - and a must-have leave-pass to the balcony where you'll wonder where your block ends, and Lobethal begins...
But the tiled balcony is the best place to check, hosting an audience of distant gums and a bevy of friends with ease.
The cohesive, yet easily separable layout ideal for the growing family hosts two above/two below bedrooms (or three plus a giant ground floor rumpus) plus a bathroom with adjoining WC to each level.
The valuable pay-off being a wing for the kids, and a wing for you.
At the tip of yours, the master and second bedroom (perhaps a study or even baby's room) shares the renovated family bathroom - with beveled mirrors, stone benchtops and deep soaking spa - and textural tiles echoing the neutral tones of the tall timber outside.
While downstairs versatility takes its cue from you, adding a home office/rumpus, even a home theatre to the layout - while also gifting another alfresco to share through French doors.
Ample car parking, powered shedding and chook sheds - the good life at ground level is set to keep everyone busy.
In these woods, it's only natural to lose yourself.
