Whether you're looking for a quiet rural lifestyle, farming opportunities including market gardening, grazing farmland or recreational activities, look no further. This outstanding 40 acre Murrumbidgee river front property with impressive four bedroom homestead nestled privately amongst beautiful established landscaped gardens will take your breath away.
Approaching the homestead from sealed road frontage along the sealed driveway, you'll be impressed by its grandeur and it's lush surrounds. The north facing, light filled home offers great family living with multiple living spaces including mezzanine areas, all with amazing outlooks framed by cedar timber windows. The high ceilings give a feeling of space and complement the exciting unique design of the home. You'll enjoy year round comfort with a slow combustion fireplace and air-conditioning. Don't worry about electricity bills - there is a 5kw solar power system.
Step outside to the spectacular easy care gardens with wide lawn areas and well established trees which provide wind protection and frame the in ground pool. Pathed walks will lead you to numerous picturesque garden sitting areas each suited to varying seasons and times of day. Outdoor entertaining is at it's best here - in fact the property has hosted 4 weddings.
After a game on the full sized fenced tennis court, or perhaps following a walk through the gardens, pines and paddocks, you can enjoy a cool swim in the naturally styled pool.
Or you may prefer to walk or ride a horse along the river, finishing with a river swim or just relaxing on one of the sandy beaches. For the fisherman or canoeist, you have direct access to both gentle rapids and still waters.
The land comprises open, north facing grassy slopes, plenty of shade trees and approx 10 acres of fertile river flats. Riparian rights plus a 28 mega-litre irrigation license provide for ample water supply. An extensive irrigation system pumps approx 1200gals per hr to any of the 100 taps and fixed and movable sprinklers across the paddocks, river flats and gardens. Early last century market gardens on the flats supplied fruit and veggies to Canberra and Queanbeyan. The current owners used the fertile irrigated grounds to grow and wholesale flowering bulbs.
Whatever your rural interest or pursuits, this magnificent lifestyle property located so close to Canberra in the Hall Region is a rare find and a must to inspect.
