historic residence

Set on 1,800sqm of beautifully maintained grounds, overlooking rural private land, this historic residence dates back to the 1880s.

Licensed agent Katrice Velnaar, of Luton Gungahlin, says this home presents “a rare and unique opportunity to buy a part of Bungendore history”.

With a host of unique features, this home is a beautiful blend of heritage and modern. The renovated kitchen is perfect for entertaining, with ample bench space, quality appliances and a servery opening out onto the covered alfresco entertaining deck surrounded by beautiful gardens.

With two bedrooms overlooking the garden, and a loft-style master suite, Velnaar says “this home is perfect for a smaller family, downsizer or professional couple”.

Filled with natural light year-round due to its northerly orientation, the home boasts spacious living areas for a variety of uses, including an elegant formal dining room with open fire. Kids will love the separate rumpus/media room that opens out to the garden, as well as the park-like grounds.

100 Rutledge Street has retained its old-world charm, with remaining original features such as the decorative cornices.

“Many original features have been retained; so a perfect blend of old and new,” Velnaar says.

Modern features include a slow combustion stove, ducted gas heating, three-phase power, reverse cycle ducted electric heating and cooling, and a converted office or guest accommodation at the back of the garage. Guests of the poultry variety will be looked after, too, with the ‘Cluckingham Palace’ chook shed.
