Secluded sanctuary in Bywong


Set on just over 18 acres, ‘Wurinyan’ could be the rural retreat you’ve been searching for, high atop the hill on Snowgum Road in Bywong.

McIntyre licensed agent, Scott Isaacs, says this house enjoys a “hilltop location, 15-20 minutes to Canberra and 5-10 minutes from Bungendore … the best of all worlds!”

“[This home] offers a level of escapism that we would all love, if given the chance,” he says.

The pavilion-style home features five bedrooms, including the elegant master suite in its own wing of the house, with walk-in robe and ensuite with oversized shower. The additional bedrooms are all large enough for queen-size beds, while the fifth bedroom includes custom-built bookcases and shelving – perfect for a home office.

Home chefs and entertainers alike will delight in the spacious kitchen, with its generous island bench, European appliances and large windows that take in the stunning views of the surrounds. The abundance of space – both outdoors and in – means you can entertain to your heart’s content, or simply enjoy the flexible living options for the entire family.

The extensive use of glass throughout the property enables you to enjoy the views anywhere you go, while the fireplace in the living room ensures winters will be comfortable and cosy. Further fabulous features such as brush box flooring, in-slab heating in wet areas, spa bath and wine cellar, make this house a true countryside gem.

Outside, take in the vistas alongside the stunning wildlife, as well as water tanks, fenced dog pen, large lawn and the dam and creek.

Isaacs says it’s hard to pin down just one demographic that would be the ideal buyer; Wurinyan has something for everyone.

“Could be a family with kids, or retirees just wanting the good life … as the home is seriously delicious [and requires] very little maintenance.”
