Chic, Contemporary Design in Beautiful Semi-Rural Setting, only 22 minutes from Canberra Centre.

Hideaway Place offers the best of all worlds. Instead of living on a small, uninspiring plot in the suburbs, you have all the benefits of an idyllic semi-rural lifestyle, a mere 22 minutes from Canberra Centre in the tightly-held location of Bywong. This property is a rare find, given its extraordinary beauty, size, and unusual proximity to the city centre.

This modern, sophisticated, sweeping four-bedroom, two-bathroom home reflects the magnificence of its location. Soaring ceilings with full-length glass and sky windows provide stunning views of the tranquil dam and bush setting. Each moment of the day provides a different, glorious vision, from the sun rising over the dam in the mornings, to the glowing sunsets reflecting back over the serene water in the evenings.

The house provides an effortless, comfortable lifestyle. An enormous open plan kitchen, dining, and living area flows onto a huge deck, designed for glamorous entertaining. Double-doors lead into an adjacent activity room, further adding to the entertaining space when open or providing a separate kids' games room when closed.

The master bedroom suite, with a huge walk-in dressing room and sparkling double bathroom, provides a secluded retreat with panoramic bush views.

The other three bedrooms are all very spacious and set well apart from each other, each with built-in robes and beautiful outlooks.

Thoughtful design make the household maximally efficient to run, such as the over-sized laundry leading out to a sunny north westerly clothes-drying area, and the huge kitchen pantry with more than enough space to store the contents of even the busiest of kitchens.

The three-acre (approx.) property includes a massive, fully-covered, irrigated vegetable garden with fruit trees and a chicken enclosure to provide for the table all year around. There is endless fun for all ages to be had, with a children's playground, an outdoor fire pit, a hammock installation, and a pier and boat shed with canoes for rowing on the dam. Friends love to come to Hideaway Place to sit around the fire by the dam and watch the sun set and the bright stars of the night sky emerge. They can't believe that it is possible to find such beauty so close to the centre of Canberra!

Behind the property, through the back gate, is a 100 acre wildlife preserve, which is jointly owned and only accessible to the residents of Hideaway Place, providing a huge area in which to walk and explore, and no risk of future developments encroaching on the pristine environment.

For the occasional break from Canberra, weekends can be spent relaxing in the 'neighbourhood.' The historic nearby town of Bungendore has excellent restaurants and cafes, a farmers market, galleries, pubs, and local biodynamic vineyards, while 'The Baker' at Sutton is just up the road for outstanding baked goods and coffee.

The house has an innovative, environmentally-friendly design with solar passive, energy-saving features, including north-facing living areas, double glazed windows, LED lighting, gas hydronic in-slab heating, and ample provision for water with 120,000 litres of tank water and a community bore.

A huge double garage with plenty of shelving provides the DIY enthusiast with all the shelving and space one could ever need. There is an abundance of storage throughout the house, so family members need not compete for space!

The whole property has been immaculately maintained to the highest possible standard by the owners, who are university professors. Their plans to settle into Hideaway Place for the long-term were thwarted by career opportunities they could not refuse, including a Research Fellowship at Harvard and a Scientia Professorship in Sydney. It is with great reluctance - but also excitement about their career opportunities! - that they offer this one-of-a kind property for sale.
