Sophisticated and serene

This property in Sutton sits just 15 minutes from the Canberra CBD, yet presents a serene and sophisticated rural offering.

“With 13.6 acres underfoot, this is an opportunity to live sustainably, grow your own fruit, vegetables and eggs and reap the benefits [with] all the hard work already done,” says McGrath North Canberra partner, Christopher Dixon.

“Nothing to do but simply enjoy life.”


The grand residence boasts five bedrooms, myriad living areas and space in spades to explore the outdoor surroundings.

It’s been designed with family life in mind and includes a segregated main bedroom suite with walk-in robe and renovated ensuite and a rumpus room adjacent to bedrooms two and three.

“The ideal buyer would be families seeking to upsize to a residence which caters for all ages with large, segregated secondary bedrooms opening to a kids’ living room, a gracious formal entertaining and a family room for everyone to come together,” Dixon says.

The home boasts a north-facing, solar-passive design, and allows for views across the lush gardens, lawns and the paddocks beyond. It also includes double glazing, a 2kw solar system, ducted gas heating and a slow-combustion fireplace. The brand-new kitchen includes a walk-in pantry.

Outside, find the 120,000L water tank, established gardens with irrigation, established orchard with fruiting trees and a sealed driveway that leads to the turning circle and double garage.

Horse owners will also be smitten with what’s on offer at 303 Cartwright Avenue, which includes four paddocks and direct access to the estate greenway.

“A full-size horse arena, two bay stables, tack room, tennis court and extra shedding also makes this property a truly special offering keeping the kids active and entertained.”
