Located just 3 km from Queanbeyan, this property has the privacy of country living and all the conveniences of city living.

3 Granville Close at Greenleigh Estate is surrounded by bush, giving prospective owners the best of both worlds.

Ward Estate Agents owner and director Jen Ward said the property is a rare find.

“This one, in itself, is very unique, with the aspect, the layout of the home and the quality of the home, as well,” said Ms Ward.

Sitting on 5105 sqm, it boasts five bedrooms, two bathrooms, two parking spaces, and a downstairs rumpus area that is somewhat private from the rest of the house.

Ms Ward said that the rumpus room could be converted into many things, such as a home office or a space for teenage family members, meaning prospective owners can let their imaginations run wild as they decide how to use it.

Despite its bush surroundings, the property has all the modern comforts you could need, such as ducted gas heating, air conditioning, evaporative cooling and an off-grid and remote-activated fire system on the roof.

“You’ve got all the town services as well.”

“So, water, gas, sewage and your bin collection – all of those things that you have in the suburban areas you’ve got in Greenleigh, but you’re on acreage,” she said.

There are also landscaped gardens, a veggie patch, established fruit trees and water tanks.

A fully-enclosed verandah wraps around the house on three sides, offering the perfect place for owners and guests to relax in front of eye-level views of leafy trees.

“You’re literally almost sitting amongst the treetops. It’s beautiful!”

The natural world is brought further into the home with its cypress timber floors and cedar sash windows that also look out over the remarkable landscape.

“It has a lot of light and a lot of sunshine,” Ms Ward said.

The property is located close to Queanbeyan’s CBD and it’s a short drive to Canberra, so you get the best of both worlds.

There is also plenty of natural beauty near to home, Ms Ward said.

“You can enjoy some beautiful nature walks throughout the area, which take you down by the river or near the golf course, as well.”

Ms Ward said the property would suit a family or an individual looking for a space in nature they can make their own.

“You’re buying a lifestyle where you can barely see your neighbours, but you’ve still got all the benefits of living in town, but you’ve got this beautiful space around you, which is key.”

Since the property went on the market, she said individuals have been quick to get in touch to express their interest.

“Greenleigh’s a suburb of Queanbeyan where very few homes come up for sale, and so I think when they do come up, if someone is interested in that area, they really need to come and take a look because they do go very quickly.”
