The feature on many a vision board, 12 Durran Durra Place, "Durran Durra", is the kind of property that sits pride of place on a country living magazine. A perfect 6 bedroom home sitting proudly on 20 acres, this is a rare opportunity to acquire something truly special on the outskirts of historic Braidwood.
When you enter this impressive Victorian style home, the first impression is a good one. Bright living areas, classical embellishments, and all with the modern comforts we've come to enjoy. Custom built by the current owners, with obvious attention to detail, the floorplan has been designed for a family. You'll find each of the six bedrooms to be spacious, with three defined living areas inside the home. Built in 2011, the character and charm of this home is a perfect blend of years gone by with all the modern comforts.
It is easy to imagine slow cooking and frequent entertaining here. The kitchen is gorgeous and also very practical with plenty of bench space and loads of storage, and the large walk in panty allows you to keep everything you need within reach. This is a space you will want to linger in, prepping food, drinking wine and enjoying your friends and family's company, even washing up won't be a chore here as there are beautiful views across the peaceful paddocks beyond. Christmas celebrations, birthdays, and casual barbeques are all easy here with direct kitchen access via French doors to informal and formal dining areas, these are equally appealing places to dine, and between them sits an inviting protected outdoor entertaining deck.
If you're looking for lifestyle opportunities, the established vineyard, orchard, berry and veggie gardens are just icing on the cake. Durran Durra is the home of 'Braidwood Estate Wines', with 440 Shiraz vines currently established and scope for an additional 720 vines. The winery has a capacity of approximately 10,000 bottles of wine per year, and the owners would be happy to sell on their winemaking and harvesting equipment.
The orchard has 140 fruit trees, including figs, plums, pears, apricots, cherries, peaches, nectarines and heirloom varieties of apples.

Water storage and irrigation are extensive at this property making your horticultural pursuits so much easier to manage.

The greenhouse is filled with raised beds, ready for planting, there would be more than enough produce grown to cover the requirements of your family, friends and even supply some for sale. The current owners are very detail oriented and they have thought of everything - you'll find a 'Flowhive' beehive, this helps with the pollination of your crops, plus the bonus of some delicious home-grown honey. There is a lot of talk about being self-sufficient these days, and this property offers you the chance to do just that.
