The breathtaking views aren’t the only thing you will notice at this property at Coila, south of Moruya.

For a prospective buyer, 3949 Princes Highway offers privacy and seclusion, coupled with easy access to nature.

Whale Coast Realty Narooma Principal John Murray said town areas are just a short distance away from the house, also known as Oakfield.

“It’s kind of a unique property, which makes it stand out,” John said.

“It’s a fabulous, architecturally designed house in a really private and peaceful setting.”

It is being listed in conjunction with Webster Nolan Real Estate Director David Nolan.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home has plenty of features, starting with the sealed driveway.

“The light spilling into the property is magnificent.”

Oakfield also boasts solar panels and two Tesla batteries for energy storage.

But the building itself isn’t all that prospective buyers should note, with Oakfield located on 75 acres.

For those with an active lifestyle or who enjoy a dip in the water, the property has water-front access with an incredible 1.4 km of frontage along Coila Lake.

“Sitting anywhere on the property, you’re looking out onto the Coila Lake – and water just makes people calm, doesn’t it.”

This easy access means activities like fishing, canoeing or stand-up paddle boarding are right on your doorstep.

There are also two lockable machinery sheds with concrete floors on the property. It also has seven newly fenced paddocks – currently used for sheep – and water infrastructure.

“It’s got dam water, which then pumps up to a tank. That tank then feeds straight into all the water troughs so the animals have got water all the time.

“It’s very self-sustainable.”

Oakfield is located just 10 minutes from Moruya, 2.5 hours from Canberra and 4.5 hours from Sydney.

Mr Murray said they are expecting the next owner of Oakfield will look to take advantage of the home’s incredible leisure opportunities.

“Lifestyle properties like these are fairly rare, so they generally will get a lot of interest.”
