The appeal of this Wamboin property starts at its driveway with semi-mature trees and continues all the way to the luxurious modern home.

“We sell a lot of properties in the area and this is a great example of a contemporary home,” Ray White Bungendore Sales Agent Ava Merriman says.

“It’s luxurious, over-the-top beautiful and modern, and it has a lot of space for yourself and your family.”

33 Lumley Road has two parts: a main house with more than 440 sqm of floor space and a self-contained three-bedroom unit.

“The layout in the house is excellent, especially if you’ve got a family,” Ava says.

“It’s got plenty of open-plan spaces, as well as some secret spots that are perfect for when you need a quiet moment.”

Across the main house and separate unit are seven bedrooms, including a master bedroom in one wing of the home with a large walk-in wardrobe and a luxurious ensuite with dual basins and dual shower.

“It is a fantastic example of a top-end ensuite,” Ava says.

The other three bedrooms in the main house and the three bedrooms in the unit also feature built-in wardrobes.

The living room has a large slow-combustion wood fireplace with a stone-crafted floor-to-ceiling chimney to keep everyone warm, while there are hydronic heated polished concrete floors throughout the home.

End-to-end windows on two sides of the living room and 2.7-metre double-glazed sliding doors give expansive views across the valleys, dams and the northern tip of the Brindabella Ranges.

Principal Doug Merriman says the rural lifestyle is at its best in Wamboin.

The small community was joined by this nearly new home in 2020, which was then improved in 2023.

“Historically, the area was a sheep farm for many decades,” he says.

“It’s now a beautiful green valley with a lot of beautiful homes and it has one of the most picturesque views around.

“Wamboin is very popular with people looking for a lifestyle change.

“There’s a lot of horse riding and hiking opportunities, and there’s a tight community with events like trivia nights, a car club and community markets.”

But the next owners won’t need to leave their property to get active – an outdoor playground with a cubby house, slippery dip, swings and sand pit will certainly serve as the perfect place to entertain youngsters (but who says adults can’t go on a slide?).

The property is part of a water scheme, with more than 350,000 litres of non-potable water supplied, and it also comes with a 112,000 litre and a 108,000 litre Colorbond rainwater tanks.

For Ava, all of these features come together for a rural retreat.

“It is a property where you can have the best of both worlds,” she says.

“This is an opportunity to have a lifestyle property where you can have acreage – maybe a few sheep or cows, too – while being close enough to town to get a takeaway for dinner or to commute to Canberra and all of its wonderful facilities.”

“You can have that lifestyle where you’re not on top of your neighbours, but also have access to the great Canberra schools.”

The 2.88-hectare block also features a 12 x 24-metre shed and a heated pool.

“The apartment is a big bonus to this property, and it would lend itself to multi-generational living,” she says.

“A mother- or father-in-law could live in the unit, or teenage kids could use it as their own space.”
