Between city and country


Set on almost five acres between Canberra and Yass, in picturesque Murrumbateman, this family home is ready and waiting to provide someone with the rural lifestyle of their dreams.

Harcourts Brindabella principal Jeremy Maher says this home is move-in ready, with absolutely no hard work to be done.

“The most special feature of this home is that it’s ‘complete’, in such as no further works are required,” he says.

“There is a huge number of properties in this acreage size that have no infrastructure or, in some cases, barely a plant!

“This home has had all the hard work done to create magical gardens and even has a very fancy granny flat/cottage.”

He says the ideal buyer of this home is someone looking for a rural lifestyle without “the skills or time to create it”.

Additionally, they may have extra family members living with them that would be able to live independently in the cottage whilst still being close enough if help was needed.”

The main house boasts four bedrooms and open-plan living, with stunning rural surrounds and gardens including an orchard and veggie gardens. Each bedroom has its very own walk-in robe and ensuite, and a rumpus room on the upper level means there’s space for everyone. The country kitchen is truly the heart of the home, with a walk-in pantry, opening out to the open-plan meals, family and dining area.

Maher says the north-facing property absorbs the winter sun, while the double-glazed downstairs windows ensure the heat is retained in the colder months.

The five-acre property is located an easy 20-minute drive from the ACT border and therefore extremely easy to access,” he says.

“The location boasts many award-winning wineries. Set almost smack in the middle of Yass and Canberra, the owners would have a choice of city or country amenities.

“The opportunity to have such a completed acreage home, right down to the last plant, is rare!”
