Tilba Hill expresses what photographers refer to as a visual reveal; it just keeps on giving.
From its entry gate to the river, Tilba Hill visually unfolds before your very eyes.
Located just 15km from Murrumbateman village, Tilba Hill allows you to immerse yourself in county living and enjoy a good commute into Canberra for work.
If you've ever thumbed through a country lifestyle magazine and imagined building a WOW-factor home with an infinity pool entertaining deck, this is the property for you.
From the air, the large level house site appears to sit atop a naturally carved pyramid, with the resulting panoramic views being nothing short of sensational. Whilst the site provides a 360deg perspective, the wide-angled vistas to the south need to be seen to be believed. Along with the horizon views, the outlooks over the immediate block, river and neighbouring pasturelands are an ever-present reminder that you're centred in the country.
But, despite its pronounced elevation, the house site is easily accessed by family type sedans, larger animal floats and heavy vehicles via a prepared road that is lined with around 37 October Glory Maple trees.
Additionally, the home site also comes with a pre-existing 3 bedroom timber cottage, excellent steel barn shed and a power pole with a transformer.
Tilba's 9.163ha block could be used for grazing purposes, but it comes into its own as an excellent recreation playground that will keep the kids happy on horseback or bike.
The picture perfect horseshoe shaped riverside sections of the property are lined with mature native trees that are home to a myriad of colourful bird life species including parrots, finches and cockatoos. It's easy to imagine strolling down to this idyllic river setting to enjoy a Sunday afternoon family picnic.
Essentially, Tilba Hill is an expression of everything that's good about natural Australia. This is your chance to develop the visually prominent country home of your dreams.
Tilba is a once-in-lifetime opportunity, so be quick!
