While it feels far from suburbia, in reality the acreage is just a 15 minute drive to shops, restaurants and the future train line at Castle Hill.

It has an advantage of a corner block location with dual addresses offering potential to add a second dwelling, subject to council approval.

The five-bedroom house, built in the 1970s, is set well back from the street and screened by established trees.

“This private 2ha estate enjoys a dress circle cul-de-sac location providing an utterly serene and tranquil lifestyle,” said agent Sandy Ward from Ray White Dural

“It is surrounded by many of Dural’s finest and luxurious properties so has enormous potential.”

The property, which will auctioned on Saturday, is being offered for sale by its original owners. Their treasured home has recently been given a complete makeover making it move-in-ready for the next family.

Designed to fit the gently sloping block, it can be entered from either the upper or lower level.

A sweeping driveway leads to the double lockup garage which has internal access into the home.

Inside, the light-filled and fresh interior has a neutral colour scheme, polished floorboards and exposed brick feature walls. Windows frame the treetop outlook from almost every angle.

The updated galley-style kitchen has new white cabinets, dishwasher, sink with flexible tap, storage and plenty of bench space. It overlooks a level lawn area making it easy to keep an eye on youngsters playing.

There is no shortage of space for entertaining with a formal lounge with combustion fireplace, combined open planned living and dining area and downstairs rumpus room. There is also a glass wrapped sunroom providing an idyllic spot to unwind during the cooler months.

The upstairs layout opens to a balcony, an ideal spot to sit and enjoy the serene outlook over the acreage.

The lower level of the house has the potential for in-law accommodation or a teen retreat — there is a multipurpose room, bedroom and bathroom. A utility room and a wine cellar also feature.

Parents will enjoy being able to relax on their own private balcony off the main bedroom which features a walk-in wardrobe and recently renovated ensuite.
