The fireplace is complemented by a powerful recently purchased four head unit air conditioner. Also, contained in the main house is a full bathroom, bedroom, laundry, and study. The original dwelling was built in 1993 and constructed of Hebel brick.
Attached to the main house is a newer two-storey extension that includes the master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and full bathroom on the lower level. Upstairs in the extension are two more bedrooms with a lovely view overlooking the Yass River valley.
Just outside the back door of the main house is the breakfast barn. The breakfast barn contains a large living area with freestanding fireplace that leads to a large storage room. Additionally, the breakfast barn incorporates a sunroom with glass windows spanning three of its walls that hosts a pretty view overlooking the garden.
A few steps from the breakfast barn is the original Mallee Gum Cottage B&B accommodation. This separate building is comprised of two bedrooms that mirror each other. Both bedrooms have double doors with fly screens that open onto a deck. Ceiling fans in the rooms hang from the high-pitched ceiling. Also, each bedroom has its own ensuite with toilet and shower. Plus, separate electric hot water services the building.
The final building on the block is the large garage that will suite a single car. The garage is lined with shelving and extensive workbench space.

Although Gundaroo has no town water or sewerage the block is well equipped with a serviced septic tank and two very large rainwater tanks.
As the block functioned as a bed and breakfast there is ample parking available with easy driving access on well-maintained driveways.
For the technically minded, internal computer network cabling within the main house connects the kitchen and main living area with the study. Also, if connected, ADSL2+ has low line attenuation to the house. Lastly, the NBN Sky Muster service is available.
