We all know that there's an acute shortage of mid-sized residential building blocks at Murrumbateman, but finding one with an established blue-ribbon address that's already got a brilliant new shed, 130,00lt rainwater tank, bio-septic system and mature trees was an impossible dream until now!
This sensational 1.69ha/4.18ac block is really a slice of Murrumbateman paradise that will not come up for sale as a partially bare block again.
Located in Murrumbateman's leafy and well established freehold sections, Woodleigh Drive is a very quiet avenue of lovely homes, bird-filled gardens, curious horses and quality people. The street is nicely tucked away, but still within an easy 25 minute commute to Canberra. Just the place to raise kids, chooks and dreams.
The topography provides a commanding north-facing building site that overlooks the entire block, but has easy access and building qualities.
The fabulous brand spanking new 21m x 7m shed is finished in Colorbond Shale Grey and divided into 3 sections for garaging/storage, utility and equestrian uptake. The middle section is fully lined and features a high-spec bathroom/WC area.
The rainwater tank and bio-septic system are already plumbed to the shed and are ready to be connected to a home when its built.
Accompanying the sale of the block are a set of council approved plans to build a stunning 368m2 / 4bedroom architect designed solar passive home. Whilst the design diagrams, plans and finer details are available from the listing agent, the planned home is designed at high-spec level and provides the owner with a modern country home to be proud of. Alternatively, whoever is fortunate enough to secure this block can design their own home home, or could modify the current design to suit their own needs.
Lastly (and subject to council approval), this block is an ideal candidate for a dual occupancy set-up. Council has indicated that it could entertain an application, and the newly installed bio-septic system may have the operating capacity to take a 2 bedroom dual-occupancy residence in addition to the current shed and planned home thereby reducing establishment costs.
Essentially, this is an outstanding opportunity for anybody wanting to build a new home on a first class block of partially treed land with excellent modern underpinning infrastructure.
The block itself is absolutely beautiful, but factor-in the newly added infrastructure and you have an ideal starter kit.
