Rata Cottage

The property

Rata Cottage is truly a home away from home and can be described as absolutely charming. Nestled at the end of a long private driveway, the home and its lovely garden are a delightful surprise. The peacefulness of the surroundings is immediately evident, and lush native gardens encircle the property. Everything about this home and property is pleasing to the eye.

An outdoor patio with its glass roof and tensioned awnings enables you to either have the full el fresco feel with all the blinds rolled up, or block out the breeze or inclement weather by rolling them down. Comfortable outdoor furniture makes this a great spot to take an afternoon nap in the sun or read a book, and the 6-burner BBQ makes this area ideal for entertaining in all weather.

The spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and living area has a simple elegance and is charmingly appointed with comfy furniture and eclectic native artwork. You’ll certainly enjoy preparing meals in the modern well designed kitchen with all the modern easy to use appliances any chef would be happy to cook with. A wood burner adjacent to the kitchen/living room provides cosy winter warmth and there’s always plenty of firewood on hand.

The master bedroom has French doors which open out to the gardens and the surrounding native trees. The second bedroom has one entire wall of windows which makes this a very light and bright room. Each of the three bedrooms is furnished with style and supreme comfort in mind. The en-suite bathroom to the main bedroom is a special feature with its French doors and bi-fold windows which brings the garden into the bathroom and will transport you to an exotic spa as you soak in the luxurious bath that is built for two!

The master bedroom has a queen bed and the guest room has a Californian King which can convert to two king single beds. The third bedroom is a single room. High quality bedding and linen has been provided to maximise your comfort.

A separate well appointed bathroom, which combines the laundry, services the rest of the home.

The owners of this enchanting property have ensured maximum enjoyment of the gardens and outdoors, and aside from the outdoor living room/patio, French doors also lead out to another terrace area from the living room. A perfect spot to enjoy the late afternoon sun.

The property has plenty of space, and off street parking for your cars.
