Bahnock at 1092 Towrang Road, Towrang is a castle awaiting your vision and presence. Listed for sale at $1.45 million with Hindmarsh & Walsh Real Estate, the property provides magnificent views across the meandering Wollondilly River, and the wide, cleared grazing country of the NSW Southern Tablelands, right to the horizon.
This spacious, inviting property in Towrang occupies a stunning location with absolute river frontage, and it’s just 11 km from the freeway, a quick 15 minutes from Goulburn and an easy 2 hours from Sydney on the Hume Highway.
The light-filled home, built in the 1990s, is an expansive, rendered double-brick and Colourbond structure with some impressive features and yes, sweeping rural views.
Bahnock is large and comfortable, with four bedrooms that each open onto the wide, northern-facing verandah. Listing agent Vicki Streatfeild describes the property as ‘heaven on a stick’.
The extra-large master bedroom comes complete with full-sized bathroom and a spa, set up to take in the views over the lily ponds, lawns and river, and which enjoys its own sumptuous comforts and privacy at the western end of the home.
The open plan living space showcases the warmth of wood and exposed brick, with soaring cathedral ceilings of exposed timber, enhanced by the gleaming reflections of Mackay Gold polished timber flooring.
Fabulous for entertaining, and fitted with a quirky, corner timber bar, the whole living area is comfortably heated by a LOPI built-in combustion heater. Ducted heating is also installed in every room throughout the house.
The delightful kitchen features black-stone bench tops, oven with warming oven, a gas hob, dishwasher, period hatch servery and ample cupboard space and, of course, more of those views.
You may laze on the sprawling, covered terrace and take in the dramatic river vistas, surrounded by the sounds of silence, or watch the wonderful array of birds and wildlife in your grounds.
The stunning gardens are a beautiful mix of natives and exotic trees, colourful blooming shrubs, rose beds, rhododendrons, hedges, lawns and bobbing agapanthus, all watered by an automatic sprinkler system with plenty of scope for vegetable production.
Of the 10.12 hectare block, the remaining land is a mixture of cleared paddocks, native bush and as it’s fully fenced, hobby farming’s not out of the question.
All this native flora and ample freshwater provides safe haven for a multitude of bird-life, such as the superb fairy wren, honey-eaters, colourful parrots and black cockatoos.
The Wollondilly meanders past your door from its western slopes, flowing south-east through Goulburn before heading into its mouth at Lake Burragorang. Swim in your own private part of this beautiful, clean river, lazing on warm granite islands in the midday sun, surrounded by nothing but birdsong and the sounds of rolling water.
The Towrang community itself is a warm and vibrant mixture of established residents and tree-change new-comers who all agree that ‘it’s the best place to live’. The local grapevine has it that nights at the popular ‘Towrang Tavern’ are legendary.
The property is fitted with 25 solar panels feeding back to the grid, and an attached triple garage with remote doors. Finally, a laundry/mudroom and plenty of storage make this property the perfect place for your immediate enjoyment.
As agent Vicki Streatfeild says: “for weekends, or weeks on end, this is the closest you will get to pure Australian paradise!”
