WESTRIDGE - reflective tradition

Beautifully composed, Westridge epitomises the embracing goodness of country living.

Whether you are looking for a welcoming new home, or a precisely-scaled working property to keep your horses, alpacas and sheep, Westridge is ready for you!

Located just 23 minutes from Canberra's northern areas you can fully immerse yourself in country living, but still be within an easy drive of your office and world class CBD facilities.

As far as rural good looks go, Westridge's 286m2 3 bedroom farmhouse takes-out first prize, and its bundled package of modern lifestyle benefits is absolutely amazing.

Wrapped in wide verandahs, and hugged by sheltering gardens, the home comes equipped with 3 spacious bedrooms, including a master with a brand new ensuite with luxury rain shower and a double-glazed picture window with views over the rear gardens. But, this is only the start; there's a completely new country-style kitchen with adjacent glassed garden meals area, a high raked ceiling lounge/dining room with fireplace, a totally upgraded family bathroom and north-facing enclosed sunroom verandah rooms too.

Additionally, the home has been lovingly maintained and treated to a complete re-paint and new carpets.

This sensational country-patterned home provides no shortage of spots to chill-out after a day's work, or just get together as a family group in front of the fire for a rollicking bit of fun.

The house block gardens were designed to be a flow-on addition to the home's living areas, and effectively provide many sheltered spots to unfold a deck chair, read a book and watch the darting array of colourful birdlife that's made Westridge its home.

Westridge's (establishment) is truly am-azing.

There's undercover parking for up to 6 cars or a truck/float combo, a power-bill annihilating off-grid 6Kw solar hybrid system with grid back-up, a range of sheds that include a brilliant 18m x 7.5m workshop/garage/annex play pen, sheep handling equipment, fully fenced productive orchard and secure chicken run.

Importantly, the property's water supply is underpinned by a great bore with a flow rate of around 650gph that's connected to the easy care household gardens and distributed livestock troughs.

Westridge's prime 5.8 acre block features 2 main horse-perfect grazing paddocks with troughs that are mostly bordered with evergreen tree lines and dotted with shade trees. These paddocks can easily be sectioned into smaller day yards, and there's ample room to add a dressage arena and stables.

Essentially, Westridge is a classic country property with no shortage of ready-made attributes. The property certainly suits an active couple, but it's ideal for a family group that just loves to enjoy life.
