We wish Keanu Reeves came with this Jindabyne Lake House

We wish Keanu Reeves came with this Jindabyne Lake House

Many of us dream of escaping the hustle and bustle, but where would you go? How about a unique lakeside retreat in Jindabyne?

Henley Property Principal Michael Henley says 33 Townsend Street in Jindabyne is the definition of serene.


“This is the perfect home for anyone who wants a tranquil piece of paradise,” he says.

“When you walk into the home, you feel like you’re in a quaint lake house.”

The home has a north-east aspect, four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

“The main living area and the master bedroom are facing the lake,” Michael says.

“Together, that gives you a real feeling of peace because you’ve got the water just in front of you.”


The property also features a double garage, a Chimney Philippe fireplace built into a rock chimney, reverse-cycle air-conditioning and gas heating, a free-standing bathtub and an outdoor spa.

“The location is just phenomenal and gives you the beautiful morning and midday sun,” he says.

“But that also keeps you sheltered from the blazing afternoon sun in summer and westerly and south-westerly winds of wintertime.”

The home has undeniable rustic charm thanks to wooden accents and feature walls throughout.

“Some people will walk in and love the timber, and I think this suits the house,” Michael says.


Adding to the property’s appeal is a separate apartment.

“It offers a big, master-style bedroom with views out to the lake and another living area,” Michael says.

“This is a self-contained space that can be used as a nice little apartment for a rental.”

Located on the shores of Lake Jindabyne with access to a private beach, Michael says this home is a rare find.

“It is very much a unicorn – there’s been a few units up for sale, but waterfront houses in this area are very tightly held,” he says.

“There are only a few north-facing, true waterfront houses, and none have been sold for 18 years.”


The next owner will be able to sit under their undercover porch at the back of the home and take in the lake views after a hard day of work (or exploring what Jindabyne has to offer).

Michael says the home – located just five minutes from the centre of Jindabyne – is already attracting a lot of interest.

“We’ve had a really good mix of both local residents and people coming from Canberra and Sydney to have a look,” he says.

Michael says this home has easy access to the outdoor lifestyle Jindabyne is known for while also serving as a quiet space for relaxation or creativity.

“The area is an amazing playground for outdoor activities – in both summer and winter,” he says.

“You’ve got ski fields, mountain biking, horse riding, bushwalking and more nearby.

“But if you like to do a bit of fishing or reading, this is a beautiful, quiet part of town.”

33 Townsend Street, Jindabyne goes to auction 3:00pm on Wednesday 6 December 2023.
