Country Lifestyle - Canberra Commute

Imagine living on 160 acres of richly diverse flora and fauna. Just 20 mins to the historic village of Bungendore, 25 mins to HQJOC, and 45 mins to Canberra airport. This property is a peaceful place, providing a sensational country lifestyle. Sweeping bush land views from the north facing living areas of this 4 bedroom residence extend across Mulloon to the coastal escarpment. The home is entirely off-the-grid, powered by Gas, Wood, Solar and Wind and is located in a high water catchment area, with plenty of dams and water tanks, to almost drought proof the property. For those into the outdoors, horse riding, motorbikes, bush walking, hunting, or exploring the many hidden waterfalls, with the ample frontage of Mulloon Creek, you can afford your own private camping sites, picnic areas, and swimming holes. This property is a must see!

The residence

The home has a functional floor plan suiting modern day living. There are two spacious living areas which have amazing northerly views and are complete with two large fire places, one is gas and the other woodfired combustion. The kitchen is the hub of the home centered right in the middle of everything. There is a conservatory next to the kitchen perfect for informal dining. The formal living room includes a dining and lounge perfect for entertaining and it frames the county side views.  Open plan to the kitchen the family room flows out to the north facing patio, which overlooks your simply stunning bush land outlook.

For privacy the master bedroom is segregated from the other bedrooms and is complemented by large walk in robe and en-suite. All 3 bedrooms have built in robes and are very spacious. The 2nd bedroom next to the master bedroom, is presently used as a study. As it is conveniently located it could also be used as a nursery. Both bedrooms are directly off the main entrance hall and internal access from the double garage. The 3rd & 4th bedrooms are further separated by the family bathroom with full bath as well as shower, adjoining toilet and laundry. Another feature of this floor plan is these rooms are all accessed via a private hall way from the main family room.

For me the best thing about this home is how the living areas are north facing and all the windows are framing the amazing views. Also, the kitchen is a true country kitchen with plenty of storage and bench tops. There is something about the smell of a working kitchen freshly baked bread and scones, this kitchen is perfect for that. It has a Scandia Banquet wood burning stove with hot water jacket plus a gas cooktop. There is plenty of storage in the pantry and ample bench space for cooking. The vendor has an imported Energy efficient fridge and freezer which will also stay with the property, plus a brand-new gas stove ready to be installed. 

Infrastructure

There is considerable shedding close to the residence which will certainly impress those needing good spaces for workshops, farm vehicles, boats, trailers. You can see better from the pictures but briefly there is;

  • 12 x 9 lock up garage with slab floor, which also houses the 3 kw solar system and supports the wind turbine.
  • 3 bay machinery shed with fully insulated work shop also with slab floor, gas outlets and phone line for internet. This space was the temporary residence when building the main house.
  • Over sized garage doors to the main residence with internal access. 
  • Solar hot water service plus Bosch instant gas hot water. 
  • Various small chook houses and other livestock enclosures fully netted in for the poultry and other smaller livestock operations.
  • Large steel frame aviary with three compartments.

Water is always front of mind when living in the country. This property benefits from being located in a high water catchment area, due to its topographical location. Extensive work has been done placing smaller dams throughout the property. 3 main dams surround the residence providing drought proof measures for gardens and livestock. There is approx. 100,000 litres of rain water tanks and in addition their are smaller tanks off poultry shedding and a larger tank fed from dams.

This property has many possibilities and benefits from Mulloon creek frontage. Creek frontage is abundant with wild life and plenty of little interesting pockets to enjoy. The frontage has been cleared and provided good grazing for a small heard of goats over the years gone by. Over the bush land acres you will find so many pretty gullies with waterfalls and majestic ribbon gums, silver ash among other varieties plus ferns, wildflowers and grass trees.

Great neighbours not far away but no-where to be seen is some thing seldom found only 35 minutes from Queanbeyan. An inspection is a must if you are looking for an amazing quiet, private sanctuary with all the infrastructure and lovely home built off the grid for the country lifestyle many only dream about.
