A grand country mansion set on 40.5 hectares of landscaped grounds is on the market 90 minutes’ drive from Canberra in the picturesque town of Harden.

‘Linden Hills’ at 273 Linden Road takes you back to another time with the property’s handcrafted wrought iron double-gates opening up to a spectacular winding driveway which leads to the craftsman-built five-bedroom four-bathroom home.

Priced at $2.9-$3.2 million, the property comes complete with an indoor saltwater swimming pool, a pool-house, a separate three-bedroom caretaker’s residence, a one-bedroom cottage, a shearing shed, a large workshop, a meat house, steel cattle yards, two bores, two dams and deer-fenced paddocks.

Listing agent Naish Stormon of LJ Hooker Gungahlin said the main residence has a very special floorplan which segregates the living areas from the bedrooms – meaning that family members can still have their privacy while others are entertaining guests.

Entertaining is an easy option given that the architecturally-designed home has a formal dining room catering for up to 40 guests, a large country-style state-of-the-art kitchen, a range of informal and formal spaces, a library, an atrium and much more.

“Every ceiling has been uniquely, meticulously designed for this home, the grand foyer with conical roof and marble tiles, the imposing octagonal library, large beautifully proportioned rooms, feature fireplaces, magnificent entertaining spaces, French light-fittings, wet bar, wine cellar, leadlight features, central heating…the list goes on,” said Mr Stormon.

“Wide verandas wrap the home on three sides and provide numerous areas to relax as the seasons change.

“The stunning grounds have been lovingly developed, landscaped and cared for over decades.”

Mr Stormon said the 12-metre x 5-metre indoor swimming pool is part of a pool-house with a kitchenette, an entertaining space, toilets and showers.

He said that in the past the 40.5 hectare (100 acre) property was used as a deer farm and it offers a wide range of potential farming opportunities including livestock or crops.
