Modern Murrumbateman architecture has evolved by quantum leaps over the past few years, with this sublime home being an outstanding example.
Whilst scoping their superb home, our design-sensitive vendors targeted a complementary balance between modern expressionism and country flair. They were very successful in creating an a' la mode home without stepping away from the patriotic fervour of localised country living.
Elegantly finished and mapped-out via a robust 3-sectioned larger family floor plan this expansive 440m2 home spans 3 large internal living areas including a massive central 81.5m2 kitchen family/meals room and 30m2 activity or rumpus room that provides segregated recreation space to the secondary bedroom wing of the home.
These wonderful spaces flow out to the rear covered 32m2 alfresco with its entrancing eastern views across the undulating countryside. The alfresco has its own BBQ/meal preparation benches, and deliberate adjacent space was left for your future swimming pool.
The 3rd space is the home's media room which can be closed-off from the rest of the home.
The home's zesty modern kitchen is a mix of keen culinary pragmatics and sleek aesthetics.
Equipped with all the latest pluses including a fabulous 900mm stainless steel free standing cooker, 40mm waterfall stone bench tops and butler's style walk-in pantry room you'll fully enjoy prepping the meals to fill-out the family's waistlines over long and relaxed summer lunches.
The home has a total of 5 or 6 bedrooms including a resort-style fully segregated 32m2 master suite with its chic' ensuite and London style walk-thru robe. If you need more storage space there's access to 2 adjacent robe/storage closets for lesser used non-daily items.
All 4 secondary bedrooms all have walk-in robes, with 2 having access to a shared ensuite, and the other 2 sited conveniently adjacent to the home's family bathroom.
With added lifestyle flexibility in mind, the home also has an 18m2 home office, equal-sized media room and separate study or 6th bedroom.
Practically and aesthetically, the home has plenty of storage areas, and the merging visual confluence of the glossy 1900mm Sydney Blue Gum floating timber floors, white plantation shutters and 2.1m high ceilings is truly amazing.
Garaging wise the property has a total of 4 secure car spaces distributed over the home's attached double garage and 10m x 7m double Colorbond shed.
The property's 1.52 acre elevated block is ideal for future gardening, with its rich decomposed granite soils being perfect for orchard development, or ornamental and vegetable gardens.
Essentially, this is a beautifully expressive executive family and entertainer home that will keep you happy and content for many years. It's an impressive property with an ideal location near the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, and just 25 minutes from Canberra's northern areas.
If you've been searching for your ideal country property, you've just found it!
