If you’ve ever wanted an ‘out’ to leave Canberra’s CBD to enjoy that unique combination of wide open spaces, fresh air and style – and still want a relatively short commute to work – this grand home is just for you.
There really aren’t any places like 3 Fenton Close, Murrumbateman on the street, or even in the rest of the town – according to Graham Bush from Independent Inner North & City,
“Well I’ve sold quite a few places in Murrumbateman, and this is by far the best I have seen – the quality is just amazing. You’ve got both inside and outside kitchen and attached entertaining areas, for example – which is just great,” he says.
“The buyers did their research ten years ago and concluded that this was the best block on offer, with views back to Brindabellas.
“It’s about seven thousand square meters too, so it’s nice and spacious, but not too big either. It’s got a five-star chook pen and a five-star dog pen, and space to fit five cars comfortably, so lots of features,” he says.
Being a local himself, Graham knows first hand the benefits of life in Murrumbateman.
“I moved out there three years ago, and it’s the best thing I ever did. Once the new highway comes through, it’ll definitely be a place where more and more people will want to live, that’s for sure.”
Potential buyers are treated to a purpose-built family dream home, containing four bedrooms, three bathrooms including an ensuite, as well as a master bedroom with walk-in robe.
The home boasts a rumpus room and segregated living areas for discrete shindigs all year round. “I was out there the other day – and it’s the middle of winter and there’s a great built-in outdoor fireplace.
“The outside area is perfect in the morning and in the evening you can light a fire – so great at any time of day,” says Graham.
“The home is about 10 years old, built as a dream home by the owners, so it’s been maintained constantly. Life goes on and their kids have grown up – so the owners are moving back into town. It’s a great opportunity for a family to get out there and expand and enjoy the beautiful lifestyle,” he says.
All of these features dovetail nicely with Murrumbateman’s famous proximity to Canberra.
“You’re close enough to Canberra, but you’re far enough away too…I used to live in Dunlop which was about 18 minutes to the City. Here it is 23 minutes – the five minutes extra is so worth it for the lifestyle and beautiful space, surrounds and views you’ve got on offer.”
It’s hard to argue with Graham considering the long list of premium features, which has the owners confident of a price to match.
“We’re looking at offers as they come in, mostly in the $1.6M to $1.8M range. This is definitely on the higher end out there but like I said, there’s nothing really out here like it to compare it to.
“So I always encourage interested buyers to just come out and have a look – that’s when you really get the idea of how great the place is,” Graham says.
The home was built for a young family and that’s who Graham believes will love this place the most, “Young families, or even grown-up families too. The main bedroom is away from the other bedrooms, you’ve got a big study, too. There’s a games room downstairs and there’s a bar too. So many opportunities for entertaining.
And it’s even got goalposts and an outdoor gym outside!” he says.
The home has already sparked a lot of interest via word of mouth, with over 20 groups coming through in recent weekend inspections.
“This is the kind of home I can see a family hosting Christmas Day in this year – it’s just perfect for that setting,” Graham said.
