JUST a short drive from Bathurst is a large family home with a lot of potential.
At 12 Vittoria Road, Vittoria, just off the Mitchell Highway, is this six-bedroom home on approximately 5.5 acres of land.
Being a country property, the back door is more commonly used, but the formal entry to the home opens onto a tiled foyer.
Recent property features:
From here, you can access the formal living room or walk through to the open-plan kitchen and dining area.
The kitchen has a number of great features, including a generous walk-in pantry, a breakfast bar, dishwasher and an induction cooktop.
As you work away in the kitchen, you can look out across the property.
This property has a lot of living space. In addition to the formal living room and the dining area, there is a third living space off the open-plan kitchen.
Off a central hallway is several bedrooms, with the master at the very end.
Each bedroom is of a good size and offers built-in storage.
Also off the hallway is the family bathroom and an enormous laundry that has been fitted out with cabinets and benches.
The bathroom is also of a good size and includes a bathtub, large shower and a separate toilet.
What makes this property particularly appealing, aside from the idea of owning a rural retreat, is that there is the potential to draw income.
The home was once used for a home business, but the current owners have transformed that portion of the home into an attached granny flat.
Bathurst Real Estate agent James Price said people could use the granny flat themselves, rent it out permanently or set it up as short-term accommodation.
The granny flat has multiple external access points, but there is also a door that leads into the flat from the formal living room in the main part of the house.
Included in the flat are two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchenette with dining area and a separate living room.
The flat is also equipped with three split-system airconditioners and has ceiling fans throughout.
Not only does this property have a lot to offer inside the home, but outdoors is a wealth of great features.
The most outstanding would have to be the shed.
It has five secure roller doors and a car port big enough for two vehicles on the side.
The shed also offers solar panels, storage and plumbing.
Also available outdoors is fire pit and a large open paddock with a substantial dam to water any livestock.
In addition to all of these features, 12 Vittoria Road has heating and cooling in the main house and a good amount of storage.
Mr Price said that this property is suited to a range of buyers, including large families, someone looking to live between Bathurst and Orange, and people who would like a granny flat.
He said they would appreciate the size and quality of the home, as well as the proximity of the property to two major town centres.
