A rural lifestyle property named after a pair of soaring wedge-tailed eagles is on the market in Berry and brings together the appeal of extensive country views and stylish family living within an easy drive to the beach.

‘Glenora – On Eagles Wings’ at 96 Roxbrough Road came into existence after the current owners were lured by the surf breaks of Gerringong and Seven Mile Beach to buy a four-acre block neighbouring a 250-acre beef cattle property and build a five-bedroom family home.

The wedge-tailed eagles soaring over Coolangatta Mountain at the rear of the property inspired its name and apparently are still there today.

On the market for $2.3 million, the large double-brick family home boasts magnificent views over the neighbouring property together with now mature gardens and fruit trees.

“We’ve had a genuine rural lifestyle here, yet it’s so close to everything,” said the property’s owner, Peter Robins.

“It’s so peaceful here and we never tire of the spectacular views, especially at night when all the stars are out.

“You come home down the drive, close the gate and the world goes away. It’s fantastic,” he said.

“We raised our kids here, established a hobby farm and had cows and horses. We even had a cow we milked and made our own ice-cream and yoghurt.”

With the kids grown up, the owners downsized three years ago but kept Glenora, renovating the house and renting it out as holiday accommodation.

It is said to gross around $120,000 per annum and is being sold fully furnished – with buyers having the option to secure a ‘walk-in walk-out’ deal for the right price.

Both levels of the five-bedroom home feature wraparound verandahs to take advantage of the lovely views and see the abundant birdlife and wildlife.

On the ground floor, there is a four-car garage and games room, as well as spacious living areas with nine-foot ceilings, reverse-cycle air-conditioning and a bioethanol fireplace.

There’s also a new Hamptons-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a master bathroom with freestanding stone bath, a master suite with ensuite and walk-in robe, three further bedrooms with built-in robes, and a laundry with an additional shower and lavatory.

Upstairs there is a huge rumpus room with lounge area and eight single beds.

The property also includes water troughs fed automatically by a 10,500-litre water tank, fencing, a chook shed and a cow shed with small cattle run.

‘Glenora – On Eagles Wings’ is located only around two-and-a-half hours’ drive from Canberra and two hours from Sydney.

It is only seven kilometres from Shoalhaven Heads and is within easy proximity to schools, shops, cafes and restaurants.
