Country Living on the Edge of Canberra - Two Homes & Large Shed

Jan Ladmore of All Real Estate NSW is proud to offer a unique opportunity to purchase a large country styled home with a separate cottage set on 25 acres and overlooking thousands of acres of farming land. It's very private and very picturesque.

From the time you enter the tree lined driveway you will be impressed with the meticulous layout of the infrastructure which is functional and yet also captures the views of the rolling landscape.

The lovely home sits proudly on a gentle rise overlooking the property and neighbouring farmland. A completely separate 2-bedroom cottage with a double carport, water tank and enclosed backyard is set away from the main house for privacy.

The property layout offers plenty of room for horses, alpacas and all your pets as well as endless space for kids to explore.

This family designed 4-bedroom home with high ceilings, has 2 living areas (both formal and informal), a main bathroom, an ensuite, plenty of built in robes, plus an internal access door to the double garage.

The kitchen was designed with family in mind so there is plenty of room to move and loads of bench space. Large windows offer views across the property.

All the bedrooms in this home are a good size with built in robes in 3 with provision for the built-in robe in the 4th bedroom. The master bedroom is more private as it is separated from the other bedrooms by the 2 living areas. A slow combustion wood fire makes the informal living area very cosy and inviting, while the reverse cycle air-conditioner offers convenient and quick temperature control.

The well maintained cottage has 2 large bedrooms with built-inss, open plan kitchen /living area with a slow combustion wood fire plus it has a separate toilet, bathroom and laundry rooms. The back yard is fully enclosed for a safe play area for children or pets. It is a great option for extra income by renting it out or to utilize for a home for extended family, teenage retreat or for guests to stay.

Every bloke needs a good shed and this one is huge! A massive 24m x 12m shed with a full length skillion off one side and personal access doors along with large sliding doors. The shed is centrally situated to both homes and has a lined interior office/workshop/studio/tea room with a shower and power. This could be used for a multitude of hobbies. There is a mezzanine floor above the utility room for storage. So if you are after a handy shed or workshop which is within walking distance to the house but far enough away to do your own thing, then this place has it waiting for you....and with it all set up with skillion  to work outside as well.

The owner is a vintage train enthusiast so a unique feature of the property is a small railway system with a diesel train and carriages, which is set up to travel all around the paddocks.

There are some nice paddocks for stock so bring the horses, alpacas etc. and enjoy your farm.

Agents Comments

I think, that this is a very rare & special rural property. Not only does it feature a country styled family home, a very tidy cottage, and a massive shed & workshop, but the panoramic views of farmland and rolling landscape really make you appreciate the rural lifestyle it offers. It is so close to the city yet far enough away to live the dream with short travel times to Canberra, Murrumbateman, Yass, Sutton & Gundaroo. School bus services to Canberra and local schools.
