Murrumbateman’s homes range from new builds to character-filled homes, and this mid-century A-frame design is perfect for families looking for something unique, particularly those needing plenty of undercover secure parking and summer lifestyle options.

The six-bedroom, three-bathroom family home at 70 McIntosh Circuit in Murrumbateman has a main residence with four bedrooms and a two-bedroom self-contained studio flat, all set on four acres of landscaped gardens with well-established shade trees.

The main residence has generous outdoor paved and decked areas, with pergola-covered alfresco dining and poolside paved locations ideal for sitting and keeping an eye on the kids, and there’s a tennis court ready for a Boxing Day tennis match (in 2021).

Inside, the timber-clad living areas have cathedral ceilings, and light streams in from full-height glass on the north-facing wall. An open fireplace sits on a stone hearth, and the open plan kitchen, dining and living area link to the rear alfresco deck.

The kitchen has cedar cabinetry and a walk-in pantry, a double sink and a hardwood topped breakfast bar, and there is a separate family room with cedar-clad walls.

On the ground floor, there are three double bedrooms, two off the family room and one off the living room, and there’s a family bathroom, an ensuite and a separate toilet. The third bedroom off the living room adjoins a home office or study, or if you prefer to convert it, a walk-in robe.

The upper level of the home is accessed via a spiral staircase arriving on a loft level, containing the master bedroom with a walk-in robe and spectacular views of the treetops on both sides.

The home has ducted gas heating and an open fireplace, solar hot water with an electric booster and three rainwater tanks with a 40,500-litre capacity.

The space available for cars is enormous, with no less than 10 undercover parking spaces in the concrete-floored studio shed. On one side of the studio shed is the separate two-bedroom, one-bathroom studio flat.

The flat is open plan, with its own kitchen, living/dining room and two bedrooms both with built-in robes, and a bathroom. It has a kitchen with a Westinghouse fan-forced electric oven, feature green slate floors, electric hot water and a Coonara solid fuel combustion heater. The studio flat has two above-ground rainwater tanks with a total capacity of 36,000 litres, and includes a laundry.

Elders Real Estate sales agent John Lennie said the home is a great family option, with plenty of outdoor living space and will be a real find for car buffs needing a large work area.

“The property has a load of character,” said Mr Lennie, “and I can see that it will be a dream come true for a family with a member who needs to garage their cars while they work on them.

“The home has a lock-up storage room located in the 10-car studio shed garage. The kids will be very happy with an inground pool and a tennis court, and the landscaped gardens are delightful.

“There is an orchard as well,” said Mr Lennie, “which has established fruit trees loquats, apples, pears, quince, lemons, olives and there’s a chook run for fresh eggs.”

The home will be open for inspection today (19 December) from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm.
