This rural lifestyle block has some amazing views of distant mountains and is located at Birchman's Estate, in Wamboin. It is broadly known that Wamboin is a very friendly community to live in, and with more and more people making a move towards a semi-rural lifestyle within a quick commute to Canberra, then this could be the property you are looking for. Whether you are just starting out wanting to build the dream, or needing some more space for a growing family, maybe thinking of retiring or are just looking for a lifestyle change, Wamboin really is a nice area to live.
All of the blocks in the Birchman's Estate subdivision have the benefit of utilizing the local community Greenways that adjoin the estate providing access through the hills & throughout the area of Wamboin. These can be used for horse riding or bush walking.
Features of this property are:
• 10.87 Acres / 4.4 Ha • Large building envelope • Freehold Title • Amazing Views of distant mountains • Tar road frontage • Fully Fenced Boundary • 1 small dam • Access to water scheme: Allocation of 350,000 litres/year • Phone and ADSL available • Power pole nearby with a 240v transformer • Access to community Greenways for safe horse riding & bush walking • Quick Commute to Canberra, Bungendore & Queanbeyan • School bus to Bungendore & the Interchange, daily mail • Dual Occupancy & Home Business are Permitted
The block has a small dam and an allocation of water from a water scheme. The land is freehold, with the added bonus that each of the 44 blocks in the original subdivision have one share of the water from the Birchman's Estate scheme.
Basically, this is how the scheme works: Each shareholder (block) receives one share in Lot 1, with the bore and dam and is "Company Title" with the company "Birchman's Pty Ltd" set up with each lot owner receiving one share in the company and then each shareholder will pay a contribution of approx. $350.00 per year into the sinking fund, owned by the shareholders of the company, which has been established to cover the maintenance, insurance and running costs of the water distribution.
As a shareholder, you have equal say on how this is organised and run. The scheme is managed by the shareholders and a board of directors who are nominated by the shareholders to make the decisions, etc. Any shareholder can be a director if nominated or volunteered to be elected at the shareholders meetings. This non-potable water (not drinking) is for gardens, stock or washing cars etc. and the water metre is located on the boundary. The system is very similar to a town water set up, except that the water is not for drinking. The scheme allows each of the 44 blocks an allocation of 350,000 litres of water each year and you can purchase extra water if required. The water system is supplied by a 17mg dam and bore on lot 1 which is pumped to a header tank (similar to town water) which is then supplied to each block. You can use the water straight from a tap or even store it in a tank for later use.
The building envelope is approximately 2000 sq mtrs, and can be moved or changed by lodging a Development Application (D.A.) to council for approval. There is no time limit to build or building restrictions other than normal Council ones that go with any building application. The block is fully fenced with Tar road access.
The zoning of this block allows for Dual occupancy. (meaning 2 houses can be erected on the one block of land). You can also apply to council to have sheds for machinery, storage, hay, stables etc
In respect to the services (i.e. Phone, Water) these are supplied somewhere near the front boundary of the block. You will need to install a septic system and water tanks for drinking water. The power is at a nearby pole and already has the 240v transformer fitted, this is a huge saving to the purchaser.
There are only a few general restrictions on animals that I am aware of, for example cats must be contained or kept inside which is a council standard type ruling,....but you can have both domestic and farm animals...horses, sheep, cattle, alpacas, chooks etc.
Directions: From Canberra, take the Federal Hwy to Macs Reef Rd, follow for approx. 9 klms, Turn Right onto Denley drive, then take the first on the right onto Birchman's Grove and follow down approx. 1.4k and the block in on the left. I suggest that you take a drive out to the property to have a look and walk around, maybe take a picnic basket to enjoy while you contemplate the life style that you would enjoy there, the type of home you may build and the opportunities the area offers to you and your family.
Please do not hesitate to contact me is you would like more information or make a time to visit the property.
