External awnings also provide protection whilst the sunroom has the option to be closed off via wide French doors from both the dining and elegant formal dining/living area. Here, two striking chandeliers grace the room and electric heat with handy two way access warms these rooms in the cooler months. Access to the front verandah provides the perfect spot for a morning cuppa or evening beverage with elevated views across Newstead to the eastern mountains.
Quality and near new carpet have been installed throughout the home including bedrooms two and three that enjoy good-sized built in robes and also open onto the expansive verandah.
