Pine Ridge, a treasure of a property, has just been released for sale in Sutton Village.

Located at 41 Moorong Street, this five-acre lifestyle haven has it all: spectacular established gardens, show-stopper pool area, alfresco entertaining area, fully fenced tennis court, artisan woodfired pizza oven and plenty of quiet, open space.

“Many of us dream about a laid-back lifestyle on a country-style property, surrounded by acreage, stunning scenery and wonderful wildlife,” says agent Sally Strang of home.byholly. “This is a genuine opportunity to make that dream come true. This is a true sanctuary with approximately 293 square metres of living, and is only 20 minutes from Canberra.”

This sprawling home – positioned perfectly in what is locally known as ‘The Valley of Peace’ – features multiple living areas and massive windows connecting with the outdoors from every room, including its five bedrooms. Formal and informal living spaces flow easily, and a generous sunroom/rumpus room offers outstanding country views.

Entertaining area

Massive windows connecting the outdoors from every room and multiple living spaces make this a perfect home for entertaining.

Family and friends will love gathering in the open-plan, country-style kitchen with a separate meals space and fully equipped with electric cooktop, dishwashers and oodles of storage. The large sliding glass doors in the formal dining area lead direct on to the alfresco covered entertainment area.

“Indoor and outdoor entertaining is easy in this special property,” says Sally. “The extra-wide verandas are perfectly positioned under a roofline that protects from the hot summer sun, and the outlook is amazing from every angle.”

The home’s formal living area, with double glazing throughout, features reverse-cycle air conditioning and a slow combustion fireplace with ducted heat transfer throughout.

The large master bedroom, with a generous ensuite and walk-in robe, has direct access to the pristine saltwater pool (complete with shade sail and solar blanket).

A separate children’s or guest wing with a second master bedroom also features an ensuite and walk through robe. The main bathroom is a generous size with separate toilet (in total, the home has three bathrooms).

The open and inviting kitchen

The open plan, warm and inviting kitchen, is the heart of the home.

The residence includes many other convenient features like a generous laundry and plenty of linen cupboards.

“The family fortunate to live here will enjoy quality of life and a great physical and natural environment to raise the kids in,” says Sally. “The property is full of surprises, including two dams and extensive rural infrastructure including fully fenced paddocks, a stable/tack room, horse shelter and yard.”

The property’s landscaping is a gardener’s delight and has been years in the making, with mature trees and bushes, fruit trees, a fenced vegetable garden and glasshouse. A large enclosed chicken yard is tucked at the back of the property.

41 Moorong Street’s landscaping is a gardener’s delight and a large, enclosed chicken yard is tucked at the back of the property.

The roof has double insulation, and a 5 kW solar panel system providing an 8 cents/kWh feed-in tariff.

A rainwater house tanks hold up to 45,000 litres, an enviro cycle for water waste is established and a reliable bore provides up to 1200 litres per hour.

The property, built in 1984 and extended and renovated since, has dual occupancy provision and ADSL2 Internet. The single garage has plenty of storage and the home has an additional workshop and two double carports.

Sutton is a quaint, friendly rural village but Dickson is only 15 km away, and Civic and Gungahlin only 20km. “It’s so close yet so far away,” says Sally.

The young ones can walk to Sutton Primary School and buses are free to Canberra schools.

Outdoor entertaining area

Large verandas and alfresco dining areas add to the appeal of this stunning property.

Entry to the property is easy with sealed roads. The house is located a short walk to the baker at Sutton, the general store, post office and a short distance to Sutton Automotive mechanics.

Sutton Village is on the cusp of limited development with Yass Valley Council approving the release of an additional 150 blocks – village and rural residential – by 2036. This will transform the area and drive additional development, while maintaining a true rural lifestyle.

“41 Moorong Street is a wonderful place to call home and a perfect place to create ever-lasting memories through family occasions and special celebrations,” says Sally.

Expressions of interest close 4 November. Contact Sally Strang at home.byholly, on 0410 626 731 or sally@homebyholly.com.au.
