If you’ve been looking for an excuse to escape the city, you’ve found it!

This exquisite semi-rural property at 2 Kanangra Close in Murrumbateman offers the dream country lifestyle just 40 minutes from the Canberra CBD.

Verv Property sales agent Jason Roses said the sprawling homestead was designed for “entertaining on a grand scale”.

“The gorgeous covered alfresco area can comfortably accommodate an outdoor lounge and dining table and flows directly onto the pool deck,” he said.

“It’s a magnificent resort-style entertaining space with an outdoor kitchen with built-in barbecue, sink and glass window splashback.

“It’s just perfect for hosting a large gathering, watching the sun go down while overlooking the heated outdoor mineral swimming pool – which also has ample lounging space.”

The six-bedroom home is just 12 months old, and Jason described it as “an architectural masterpiece that has been designed with the very best inclusions and finishes”.

“It’s got all the mod-cons and inclusions that you would expect in a new home, with the benefit of being set on a semi-rural estate,” he said.

The designer home has breathtaking proportions, with impressive high-end finishes and custom cabinetry throughout.

“The homeowner owns a kitchen company so, as you would expect, all the joinery – from the vanities to the kitchen and butler’s pantry – is custom made, and only the very best materials have been used,” Jason said.

He said the designer kitchen was “truly marvellous” and the “perfect space to cook up a storm”, with stone benchtops, a large island bench, quality appliances and loads of storage.

The kitchen and living areas are the beating heart of the home, opening out to the alfresco area.

“You walk through the beautiful glass pivot front door and look straight through the gorgeous living area to the northeast facing alfresco and pool beyond,” Jason said.

“As soon as you enter, you are drawn into the heart of the home, with three-metre high ceilings, soaring floor-to-ceiling glass and well-appointed living areas with gleaming hybrid timber flooring.”

The home features five bedrooms, a dedicated study and a self-contained studio. Along with the light-filled open-plan living areas, there’s a rumpus room and media room providing plenty of space for the family to enjoy their activities or watch a movie in peace.

The studio is ideal for teenagers, extended family or guests, and with private access, its own kitchenette, bathroom and living area, it could easily be rented out for added income.

The luxurious segregated master bedroom is a generous space for parents to relax and unwind after a busy day, with a huge walk-in robe, designer ensuite, study and doors opening out to the back deck and pool area.

“The space has been designed to be the most private retreat for parents to enjoy quality time,” Jason said.

“With custom lighting in the robe, a floating double vanity unit, free-standing tub and in-slab heating in the ensuite, it’s magnificent.”

Sitting on a 2.4-acre parcel of land with stunning views of the Brindabella Ranges, the single-level home boasts 450 square metres of living space under the roofline.

Nestled within one of Murrumbateman’s’ most tightly held locations in a cul-de-sac with only five other residences, the home has been carefully designed for comfortable livability. It is perfect for anyone seeking a large family home with space to enjoy.

“More and more people are looking for space to make the most of the outdoor lifestyle,” Jason said.

“This property has room for the kids to run around, ride quad-bikes, raise chickens and plant a veggie garden.

“We’re finding a lot of Canberrans moving out from the suburbs onto blocks like this because of the lifestyle on offer.

“At Murrumbateman, you have that fantastic semi-rural lifestyle within a 40-minute drive of the city. It would take you longer to drive from Belconnen to Tuggeranong!”

Jason said the property was one of the nicest homes he had ever marketed in Murrumbateman, and the area was growing in popularity.

“It’s a township that is significantly growing. We’ve got more land being released and, with north of 25 wineries in the region, it’s really popular with couples and families,” he said.

“It will be very exciting to see the changes over the next five to 10 years, and this is a really good opportunity to get into the suburb.”

The home is expected to sell for somewhere in the low-to-mid-$2 million range.

“To buy a block of land in Murrumbateman and build a house of this calibre, you’d be looking at well over $3 million, so this near-new home offers great value,” Jason added.

The home also features a double garage with internal access, a vast 100 square metre space for three additional cars, as well as a bathroom, toilet and three-phase power.

You’ll also save on energy costs with an 18.56-kilowatt solar system, five skylights, a 157,000-litre rainwater tank, plus an additional 20,000-litre water tank for irrigation and an Envirocycle septic tank.

If now’s the time to make your move to the country, don’t wait! Contact Jason on 0431 419 847 to arrange an inspection at 2 Kanangra Close in Murrumbateman, and check out all the hottest listings at Zango.
