FOR years, the Blue Ridge Estate has been one of Bathurst's premier locations for large lifestyle blocks and exceptional homes.
It is a tightly held area and opportunities to snag a spot in the estate are few and far between.
But if you want to call Blue Ridge your home, luck is on your side now.
Recent property features:
Sitting at 139 Blue Ridge Drive is a large 4009 square metre block, complete with a five-bedroom home and one-bedroom flat.
The current owners not only reside at the property, but use it as both a bed and breakfast and for other commercial interests.
Arriving at the property, you find yourself walking through a landscaped front garden to the front door, which opens onto a tiled hallway.
Your eyes are immediately drawn to the impressive stone feature wall ahead.
Adding to the uniqueness of this home is the split-level design, which maximises the opportunities to take in some spectacular views.
The main part of the home offers three living areas, including a sunken living room, a formal media room and an open-plan area.
A lot of care went into building this home so that picturesque views to Mount Panorama could be captured from the open-plan living and dining room, which flows easily onto a paved terrace.
These views can also be enjoyed from a second entertaining area on the opposite side.
Overlooking the open-plan area is a spectacular kitchen, with a wealth of great features.
It offers a large walk-in pantry, plenty of storage, a breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances.
The layout of this house means it can be used as a five-bedroom home or as a two-bedroom home with guest accommodation.
A hallway coming off the open-plan area leads to an additional living space, surrounded by three bedrooms, all of which have built-in-robes, and a full bathroom.
This area has external access to the rear deck and can be easily closed off from the rest of the home.
The home's master bedroom is at the opposite end of the home. It has a generous walk-in-robe, spacious ensuite and access to the backyard.
A fifth bedroom is nearby. It is currently used as a home office, but could easily be a bedroom again.
Outdoors, this property has a lot to offer.
Covered entertaining areas stretch across the back of the home, overlooking the lawn and landscaped gardens, some of which conceals an oversized Colorbond shed.
At the back of the shed is the one-bedroom flat, which also includes a kitchenette, living space and bathroom.
With the shed, a double garage and long paved driveway, this property also has a lot of parking options.
Professionals Bathurst agent Leanne Hurley is handling the sale and said the property would suit anyone looking for more land or a home with income potential.
"It's a family home with magnificent views," she added.
