There are luxury homes and there are off-grid homes, but it’s not often you get both.
“This is a stand-out large, luxurious home that is completely off the grid,” she said.
“It’s state-of-the-art living on a secluded bush block close to Bungendore and Braidwood.”
Nicola says the impressive architect-designed home boasts views from all angles.
“Practically every room frames picturesque views through the full height windows, of the rolling lawn scattered with soaring mature gums down to the large dam and beyond to the hill as a backdrop – it’s spectacular,” she said.
The north-facing home is solar passive, with an angled roof and high windows soaking in the sunshine that keeps the home toasty warm in winter.
“When you walk into the home at any time of the day, it’s consistently about 20 degrees,” Nicola said.
“In summer, the angle of the roof blocks the harsh sun, while the large windows allow good airflow through the home.”
She says the home is in as-new condition, with superior features throughout, including a slow combustion fireplace with stone hearth, jarrah flooring and sprawling outdoor living spaces.
“You can see the quality and thought that went into this home when it was built and it has been so well cared for – it’s like new,” Nicola said.
“As you step inside the house, your first impression doesn’t disappoint!”
An inviting entrance flows out to the under-cover, alfresco entertaining deck offering some of the most stunning views in the district.
The family room also opens out onto the deck, providing the ideal spot to sit with a cup of tea soaking in the morning sun or opening a bottle of red with friends in the evening.
“The alfresco area is where you’ll make the most of living a beautiful life in the country,” Nicola added.
Offering both formal and informal living areas, there’s plenty of space for a large family, while the open plan kitchen will delight the home chef with soft closing cupboards, Caesarstone benchtops, breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances.
Nicola says the four bedrooms are generously sized, with a segregated master bedroom featuring a walk-in robe and modern ensuite.
The main bathroom is luxurious, with an antique claw foot bath, separate shower and wall-hung vanity with a stone benchtop.
Outside, all the hard work has been done on this 100-acre property, with established landscaping and gardens, plus a netted orchard with stone fruit, berry, apple and almond trees.
There is plenty of parking on offer, with eight undercover parking spots provided by a double carport with a large storage area next to the house plus two large machinery sheds/workshops. One shed has power and an oversized double garaport in front and a carport to the side.
The property is powered by a standalone 3.6 kW solar system with 21 solar panels, plus a 1 kW wind turbine.
Water is also plentiful with a large roof catchment area filling up the water tanks, and there are three good-sized dams on the property.
Nicola says the 1.5 km graded driveway provides access from the highway to the secluded property just 15 minutes to Bungendore, 50 minutes to Canberra and one hour to Batemans Bay.
“We’re so lucky to have rural properties like this so close to Canberra, with great schools and shopping facilities in the city and nearby towns, including the new high school coming to Bungendore,” she said.
“It’s a hobby farm with enough space for a couple of horses and for the kids to have space to run and play, off-grid, in the fresh air.
“A great place to raise a family or to retreat from the hectic city life.”
