866 Tarago Road, Bungendore NSW 2621

Block size: 81.21 Hectares approx.


Werriwa is the estate you have always dreamed of - it could be Bungendore's new exclusive B & B, the region's greatest thoroughbred stud or simply your prestigious rural residence, complete with Primary Producer status.

However you look at Werriwa there is lots to be excited about. It's not just the elegant and comfortable homestead but also two additional homes and a myriad of features and facets to enhance your life and enjoyment. Werriwa is a world where old meets all the comforts of today in a stylish and unforgettable way. It's hard to believe you are so close to Bungendore and only 30 minutes from Canberra Airport.

The property is situated just 5 minutes from Bungendore village and comprises 82 ha (202 ac) with a 915m2 (91sq) Victorian limestone Homestead, two Victorian era cottages (both currently rented), stone stables and a tennis court surrounded by superb gardens and a wonderful outlook.

Werriwa homestead has been extensively renovated and correctly restored. There are 6 bedrooms, formal living and dining to seat 14 guests and a large family room (with a slow combustion wood heater) which overlooks a beautiful courtyard - one of three courtyards in total. The large bespoke kitchen has an attractive and substantial island bench and naturally there is a cool room nearby for large scale entertaining. Adjoining the kitchen is a sunny meals area and preparation room which both lead to pleasant and private terraces - a perfect space for professional caterers and home chefs. All of this contained within 18 inch historic stone walls that keep the temperature constant, irrespective of the season. Thermostatically controlled hydronic heating installed throughout the homestead ensures year round comfort.

A self contained guest suite known as the "Willis Suite" comprises a bedroom, bathroom, living room and large eat-in kitchen - ideal for au pair accommodation, inlaws, farm home stay or even a great teenagers hide away. This home is fitted throughout with quality curtains, blinds, floor coverings and light fittings with the interior design seamless and very inviting - no shortage of form or function.

The two cottages have also been renovated. 'Scottsdale Cottage' is a three bedroom weatherboard cottage with garage and workshop and its own driveway access just to the north of the homestead. In a private setting to the south of the homestead is the charming limestone 'Eiredale Cottage' - a two bedroom with study cottage with shedding and a traditional cottage garden- a very attractive rental option.
