Space, privacy, big skies. This prestige home set on 5.72 elevated acres promises to exceed the expectations of the fussiest of buyers.

‘Jiparu’ Estate at 6 Kanangra Close in Murrumbateman boasts a sprawling architecturally designed four-bedroom luxury home that has been positioned to take in the magnificent rural vistas from every angle.

MARQ Property sales agent Justin Taylor said with a price guide of $2.3 million plus, the property “has everything you’d expect to have with that budget”.

“The home is immaculate. You can’t fault it,” he said.

“From the presentation to the high quality of fixtures and finishings, and the well thought-out floor plan, the property has a great ambience and feel.

“The ultra-high ceilings make the home feel spacious, and the clever use of glass capitalises on the northerly aspect and the views over the estate to the Brindabellas beyond.”

Justin said the main focus of the home was the sun-drenched kitchen, family and meals area, which flows to a fabulous covered timber alfresco deck, casual entertainment area with firepit and heated mineral pool.

“That’s where you’d spend 80 per cent of your time,” he said.

“As soon as you walk into that outdoor entertaining area, you think, ‘How good is this?’ It definitely has that feeling of calm and, for busy people working in the city, it’s the perfect estate to come home to.

“While it’s close to Canberra, it really does feel like it’s worlds away.”

The home boasts four bedrooms, a study, two bathrooms and open-plan living areas, but it also has break-out spaces, including a huge rumpus room and home theatre that can be completely closed off. A separate studio provides a second office or art space.

“There are four living areas so that a large family could live here, and everyone could have their own space,” Justin said.

The home is centred around a dream white stone kitchen with 30 sqm of bench space and spectacular picture windows.

Quality Bosch appliances include an induction cooktop, two ovens and an integrated dishwasher. Also, enjoy an integrated double fridge/freezer, Billie Zip cool water tap and a huge butler’s pantry with custom joinery.

“The kitchen has that wow factor, with the sun streaming in and those amazing views,” Justin said.

“You can sit at the window bench with your coffee and look out over the pool after your morning swim.”

The living areas are also set to impress, with blackbutt timber flooring, plush carpets, and ducted heating and cooling, plus a superb double-sided fireplace facing both the lounge and dining rooms.

“The wood-burning fireplace has been finished with Artisan bluestone, giving that cosy country feel. You can imagine sitting around the fire with a glass of red during the winter months,” Justin said.

The master bedroom has gorgeous timber panelling providing warmth and incredible floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool and farmland. There’s also direct access to the outdoor entertaining area, making it a lavish parent’s retreat.

Crafted by esteemed local builder Class Constructions in 2021, Justin said the home “exemplified quality and elegance at every turn”.

“This exceptional family residence is situated within a quiet cul-de-sac and offers an unparalleled semi-rural lifestyle, with easy access to all the modern conveniences of city living,” he said.

“No detail has been overlooked in the creation of this rural masterpiece.”

The home boasts 442 sqm of living space under the roofline, plus a massive four-bay shed with a bathroom, kitchenette, and toilet, and is networked with CAT 6 and TV cabling.

“Along with the double garage, the 160 sqm shed provides space for all the toys and machinery to maintain the property – like a ride-on mower,” he said.

“Whether you have a car collection, motorbikes, a boat, or a home gym, there’s plenty of room for it all.”

The outdoor space extends beyond the heated mineral pool, with room for a few horses or chickens, and there are already established veggie gardens and a dirt bike track on the property.

“The grounds are well maintained, and the owners have spent thousands on new planting and landscaping around the property, which will be well established in five to 10 years and add to the property’s privacy,” Justin said.

“At the back of the block, they’ve created a private picnic area in an elevated position, which is perfect for sitting back and having a glass of wine while overlooking the Brindabellas and the district. It’s only about 70 metres from the house, but it’s a great little spot to relax at the end of the day.”

The home boasts a full house solar system with 25 kW panels, two 10 kW Fronius inverters and an 11 kW battery which Justin says will “save you thousands of dollars”.

The property is just seven minutes from Murrumbateman township, 20 minutes from Yass and 35 minutes from Canberra City.
