A sense of space


Garden of large property

On 10 acres (4.05 Ha), this recently renovated home in Bywong sits nestled amongst paddocks, trees and gardens, and could be the tree change you’ve been looking for.

Licensed sales agent Michael Fay of McGrath North Canberra says the home sits in an enclave of quality properties, with easy access to the Federal Highway and North Canberra via a sealed road.

“It’s a modernised colonial set behind a secure automatic gate on 10 scenic and private acres exuding country charm,” he says, “with fertile soils sloping down to Gum Flat Creek, three dams providing water security and seven interconnected grazable paddocks (to suit horses or stock).


“Tree plantings to wind-protect and shade the house are mature and well situated.”

The property also includes horse yards, horse shelters and a suitable arena site, as well as a large working glasshouse that can double as a conservatory or winter sunroom. Fay says this is the perfect home for young families looking for a sense of space, “or who simply want to have their horses on their own property and not have to agist”.

He says there is means to add value in the future, too, by renovating further, extending or exploring the dual occupancy potential (STCA).

Lounge room

The four-bedroom home boasts two large, separate living areas, as well as in-slab heating and a wrap-around veranda. It’s also home to a double carport and hayshed and has access to walking trails.

“Bungendore is 10 minutes away with a large IGA, medical services, ambulance station, social activities galore, primary school and a funded public high school to open in the next couple of years,” Fay says.

“Dickson is a very easy, short commute along the dual carriageway Federal Highway.”
