Sensational 319m2 Country Home - 5.08ac Block - Located on Eastern Bridle Path
Location and country good looks are only two of this amazing property's broad array of attractions.
If you've been looking for a property with scoped dimension, class and fluid freedom of movement you've just found your new home!
In addition to being a short 25-minute commute from Canberra's north, this exciting property directly connects into Murrumbateman's famed eastern bridle path. Yes, just open-up the back gate and you can walk or ride all the way to Murrumbateman village without touching pavement! This is dynamic country living at its best.
But, if a cross-country saunter doesn't appear on your daily to-do list, there's still plenty to keep you entertained around your own private farm. With its inspirational package spanning an attractive 319m2 home, large shed and superb block you can choose between unleashing the latent farmer in you, or just immersing yourself in the property's soft liveability. It's all about what you want to do with this property.
Designed for country living the home's impressive array of features includes 4 large bedrooms, including a huge master suite with its room-sized walk-in robe, a big fully equipped modern-country kitchen, great open plan family/meals area with its own wood burning heater and a family-friendly rumpus room with direct access to the covered rear alfresco deck. There's even a cellar room that we are told has the perfect ambient temps to house your wine collection and home-made preserves.
The home has a functional modern family floor plan that provides plenty of open and segregated space for a very large family group, plus any weekend stayover guests that want to taste-test our world class local cellar door outlets.
Life at Murrumbateman can consist of still clear mornings and starry breathless nights and the home's covered and private alfresco area is the best spot to enjoy them.
Now that we've reached our warmer months there's no better place to enjoy watching the glowing sunset light traverses the surrounding hills and grazing pastures. Just flop back in your chair and listen to the chirpy chorus of roosting parakeets jostling for spare branch space as the light drains from the big blue Murrumbateman sky.
If you have a vehicle collection or just like to tinker over weekends there's secure parking for up to 8 cars and a workshop in the fabulous 17m x 7m shed and the home's double garage. The shed has 3 phase power to push-along larger hobbyist machines, and the roof height provides more than enough clearance to add a vehicle hoist or two.
Next to the shed there's a triple-run Colorbond/heavy gauge wire dog shelter that could be turned into poultry runs or larger-type bird aviaries with the addition of more roof cover. Power could be run to these runs from the shed.
The wonderful 5ac near level block makes the property ideal for horses, sheep, alpacas or setting up a productive domestic orchard for yourself. There's ample open block space to add the full-sized dressage arena, stables and other equestrian infrastructure items that you've always wanted. Alternatively, the existing shed could be turned into a great stable set-up.
Essentially, this is a first-class, fun-filled family rural property that will fulfil your current needs and take you into the future. The property's current establishment is excellent, and the opportunities to customise or develop it to suit your particular needs appear endless.
This excellent property is all about good news, so don't let this sparkling opportunity pass you by.
