16 Merlot Circuit, Murrumbateman NSW 2582

Block size: 6501 m² approx.

Ready to Build on Now! Brilliant 6501m2 Residential Building Block – The Fields at Murrumbateman

Mildly contoured and tucked away in a discreet circuit street, this beautiful block provides you with the ideal base to add the home of your dreams, sheds, stables and effervescent country gardens.

Its focused 8m street frontage provides you with an excellent degree of road privacy, whilst the 122m depth and large building envelope makes it simple to build a longer home with ample space for outdoor entertaining areas and swimming pool.

The block's extended 119m western aspect is bordered by a mature tree line and a neighbouring privacy reserve. This enables you to site your home with the rear living areas facing north and east with an enjoyable amount of privacy. You can then place the bedrooms to the cooler south.

Purely as a fast track building option, the vendors can provide you with a comprehensive set of building drawings for a stunning 325.6m2 4 bedroom home and detached shed that were scoped to take advantage of the block's orientation. The DA for both buildings is currently progressing through council and can be transferred to you.

But you can simply design your own home.

Contour wise, the block is nearly level from the entry across most of the block, and then mildly rolls towards the western boundary NW rear section.
Located a walk away from the world class Shaw Wines and a 3 minute drive to all the broadening social conveniences of Murrumbateman village you can fully immerse yourself in a privileged country lifestyle, and still enjoy a short 25 minute commute to the ACT.

This is your chance to plan and carry through to completion the stunning country property that you thoroughly deserve!
