A Classic Rural Lifestyle Property In Blue Ribbon District
44 Holmwood Road is ideally located, just over the NSW border approximately 7 minutes drive to Canberra. It offers a peaceful lifestyle with beautiful rural vistas all round looking down to the Murrumbidgee River. The 25 acres (approx) of land is level to undulating with quality pastures suitable for stock, horses and/or general rural living. The renovated two bedroom weatherboard cottage has been lovingly modernised in sympathy with its original features and enjoys the classic proportions of the time including full length flagstone and cypress pine veranda, original open fireplace plus high quality new combustion fireplace.
If you are needing more rooms or accommodation, you are in luck! Adjoining the home is a historic railway carriage with all the character of a bygone era ready for a tidy up and minor renovation (plumbing is in place ready for connection). There is also a full size Yurt out front with power connected, ideal as a teenage retreat, guest house or office.
The home offers a magnificent outlook from every window, either into the orchard, garden or sweeping vistas. The interiors are light and airy and the layout providing open plan north facing living room, dining area, galley kitchen and two good sized bedrooms. The deep wrap around verandas are pitched to allow the winter sun in, while keeping the summer sun out.
With a strong emphasis on comfort and relaxed living, the neutral toned country style kitchen features quality appliances and is the hub of the home incorporating wide bifold windows creating servery to the covered outdoor entertaining deck. This kitchen contrasts a contemporary, modern style to quaint with historic features such as the light fixtures plus updated electrical appliances and surfaces. You will be mesmerised by the outlook from the kitchen, not wanting to leave it!
The property is based on permaculture principles and the current owners have enjoyed a self-sustained lifestyle with expansive vegie gardens, orchard, solar hot water, solar power, ample water, large chook shed and grey water system.
There have been no chemicals used on the property for over 50 years, making organic certification easy. The owners had operated a lucrative free range egg business of up to 1,000 hens in purpose built chook sheds and fox proof paddocks (some minor repairs could bring that back into operation). They supplemented that business with the sale of figs and asparagus to restaurants.
This delightful lifestyle property has an elegant charm and unique character, with additional potential to build your dream home under dual occupancy entitlement [STCA] and perhaps earn additional income from existing residence and infrastructure or house extended family.
Wallaroo is regarded as a highly sought after area with outstanding views, friendly community and being so close to Canberra.
