Iolanthe has two executive formulas contributing to its success.

The first is its stylish residential persona, and the second is its inspirational equestrian facilities.

Whilst Iolanthe displays perfect physical partitioning of its residential side from its equestrian facility both come together to form a singularly focused blend of elegant rural living with a high level equestrian fulfilment.

Located just 29 minutes from Canberra's inner northern commercial centre of Dickson and 8 minutes from the equestrian-centric Murrumbateman village area, Iolanthe provides you with a wonderful opportunity to commute with ease, live in style and immerse yourself in the best equestrian set-up around!

Firstly, with an astounding area of 474m under roof and imposingly sited on a hill overlooking the property, the home is both visually impacting and practically peerless.

This home was built to a high spec and to impress!

Fronted by an elegantly gardened turning circle, a lion mounted stone walkway and flanked by mop tops the home has a sublime ambassadorial eloquence about it.

The floor plan is ideal for a large growing family and for vibrant entertaining. Along with 5 bedrooms there's a fabulous modern kitchen sporting a high level of appointments that flows out to a 55m integrated alfresco via the conservatory. The fully segregated master bedroom suite is truly amazing with its large bedroom space, his/hers double ensuite and dressing room.

There's absolutely no shortage of space as there's a formal dining room, formal lounge room and a rumpus room with its own very tasteful built-in sold fuel combustion heater.

As you'd expect of a property at this level of the market the professionally designed formal gardens are both stunning and practical. The splendid mix of geometrical pathways and structures with a broad array of soft plantings is a tactile expression of clever garden planning. But not just beautiful, there are plenty of areas to entertain or just pull up a soft chair, read a book and sip on your coffee and take in the infused fragrances of the David Austin and Olde World roses.

Iolathe's equestrian setup is professional and bona fide.

Bristling with an impressive array of infrastructure items that include a 412m stable complex, remote stables, day shelters a year-round round yard and 8 day paddocks this is a serious set-up for equally serious horse people.

Currently in use as a successful equine veterinary centre the infrastructure suits several applications that could be broadened via additional infrastructure such as a dressage or cross-discipline arena.

Essentially, Iolanthe is a premier property in an excellent location with a unique structure.

Iolanthe is the ideal property for an executive family with a passion for refined personal living and a high level of equestrian attainment.

Please don't miss Iolanthe, it really is one of a kind.
