An awarding-winning home distinguished by its unique design blend, use of tactile materials and sheer amount of space is on the market in Murrumbateman, just 35 minutes’ drive from Canberra’s North.

The two-year-old home at 4 Suffolk Avenue sits on a 2.49-acre block and was designed to look and feel beautiful from all angles.

On the market for $1.1 million, the large family home is drawing strong interest from potential buyers living in Canberra, Sydney and the Blue Mountains.

The property was the winner of the Colorbond Feature Home of the Year 2017 as well as being a HIA 2017 award finalist for both Country Home of the Year and Custom Built Home NSW.

Listing agent John Lennie from Elders Real Estate Murrumbateman said the home stands out because of its “complete individuality”.

“It’s different from many properties around the area because of its look and feel,” he said.

Mr Lennie said that visually the design of the home draws inspiration from styles ranging from “American New England/Hamptons, UK Cotswolds through to Scandinavian/French provincial; all blended with an upbeat twist of the Parisian designer”.

“Along with graceful visuals, the home’s tactile industrial infusion incorporates many different materials such as 1800’s reclaimed timber posts, rusted steel beams, natural timbers and a wonderful herringbone-pattern natural-brick paved entry foyer that sets the scene for an amazing trip around the bulk of the home,” Mr Lennie said.

The home’s split-level lower floor features a large family meals/dining room, a fully segregated master bedroom suite, a sunken formal lounge room, a laundry/mud room with shower/toilet and the central living area with an inviting fireplace.

An attractive staircase leads to the upper level of the home and is made from hardwood slabs, reclaimed posts, rusted beams and industrial chains.

The upper level features three oversized bedrooms, a spacious central open-plan rumpus room/study area and the family bathroom.

On top of this, adjacent to the house is a barn shed with a residential mezzanine level that would suit a teenager or home office accommodation.

The barn shed’s lower level can house up to six cars, with workshop space left over for weekend tinkering.

The large 2.39-acre block would work well for horses, alpacas, sheep or other animals. There is also plenty of space to add stables, a tennis court or a swimming pool in the future.

For more information about the property phone John Lennie on 0407 417 783 or click here.

The house will be open for inspection today (June 16) from 1.20 pm to 2.20 pm.
