There may not be enough adjectives to describe this rural property: it is the ultimate in country living. Packed with features you may not even have thought of (but you may suddenly need), your family and friends will be awestruck, and you will be living the life of your dreams.
Sitting at the end of a gorgeous tree-lined driveway, Kikenbak is situated in the lush countryside just on the outskirts of Yass, under an hour from the centre of Canberra.
Enter through the front gate of 2 Dog Trap Road, Yass and the elegant round drive and theatrics of the immaculate front gardens make this country estate feel like something out of a film.
This five-bedroom, four-bathroom estate has everything you would want in a luxury rural resort, from the indoor pool to the tennis court, dressage arena and stables. It is all set on 10 stunning acres with space for everyone.
Independent Property agent Graham Bush says the popularity of Yass is rising.
“With Canberra property prices accelerating, buyers are seeing good reasons to choose a rural lifestyle with plenty of space over being jammed in a townhouse. You can have everything your family wants and still be only 45 minutes drive from Canberra,” Graham said.
“For years, the reason not to move to Yass has been a lack of commitment to improving the road. But work has started, so there are no excuses now.”
On entering the front door, the huge formal lounge area sets the tone for the whole home, with high ceilings and huge windows, the adjoining sunken living/dining area is bathed in natural light.
The living, dining and kitchen are tiled throughout, with the kitchen elevated to provide views into the rear garden from the benchtop. Equipped with an Emilia stainless steel double oven and gas combination cooktop, dishwasher and plenty of storage, the kitchen has everything for the home chef.
A luxurious pool room, with its own bar area, overlooks the garden and has access to the patio and indoor pool – it is the perfect space to enjoy a few evening sips.
The solar-heated indoor pool is the height of opulence. With a fountain gently running into the pool, this beautiful space is perfect for year-round use.
Four spacious bedrooms, complemented with built-in wardrobes, each with large windows with gorgeous garden views, continue the effect of the natural light that is a feature of the home.
The master bedroom has a large ensuite with a double-headed shower and ample space in the walk-in wardrobe. There is also a separate mirrored wardrobe for even more storage, while the fifth bedroom in the east wing would make a perfect study or guest room.
There are three main bathrooms in the home – all generously sized and unique.
You will be stunned by the tiled bath/shower combination in one bathroom that gives the room an atmosphere of complete indulgence.
The triple car garage caters for the car enthusiast, featuring fresh flooring, a huge workbench and plenty of storage, plus a separate two-car garage in the garden, which is perfect for a boat or caravan.
The grounds are full of pristinely kept gardens and thoughtful design extras. If you love the outdoors it’s all here, including a clay tennis court, while established trees provide beautiful, naturally shaded outdoor spaces.
“The established trees are a standout feature of this property; as you walk around the property, you feel like you could be in an English garden,” Graham said.
Other clever additions include a 125,000-litre rainwater tank and access to bore water. The garden is fully irrigated.
This property has been designed for the horse lover in mind. There’s a dressage arena in your backyard, as well as a feed shed, stables and tack room. The wash bay features instant hot and cold water and automatic water troughs to make having a happy horse a breeze.
This established home is perfect for escaping the city and must be seen to be believed. It will take your breath away.
