When you hear of a property for sale on Oakey Creek Road at Wallaroo, it’s time to take a good look. When you see a listing with two homes on 6.25 hectares on Oakey Creek Road, it’s time to make that tree change decision you’ve been thinking about your whole life.

Ray White Agent Mark Johnstone said the property has a wide appeal.

“It may appeal to those after executive country living, with the option of renting out the second residence or exploring the possibility of running a bed and breakfast style accommodation,” he said.

“Another option could be for two separate families to purchase together and enjoy segregated living,” he said.

Tarra Homestead and Tarra Cottage are together for sale as one single title property. The Tarra Homestead’s views, layout, design, and presentation are all as close to perfect as you can find. Set on 6.25 hectares (16 acres), this luxurious home, built in 2002-03, was substantially extended in 2008, and is a very tempting opportunity.

With five bedrooms and four bathrooms, Tarra Homestead has everything you could wish for in terms of space and storage. Four of the five bedrooms have walk-in robes, and the master bedroom’s robe is big enough to be both a walk-in and dressing room. The fifth bedroom also has built-in robes. The master bedroom has polished wooden floors and a spacious ensuite with a walk-in shower. But the real stunner is the panoramic view out the window of the hills and Brindabella ranges.

Panoramic views

Panoramic views from nearly every window.

The Homestead has 527 square metres of living space, including a family room which can double as a billiards room, with a timber ceiling and slate floor. There is an extremely large lounge room which can easily be zoned with furniture for different activities, an informal dining room and a formal dining conservatory with views that will give your guests and family a sense of peace and calm as you gaze over the gently rolling hills.

The home also has, of course, a four-car garage, a gym, and a cellar room perfect for laying down wine for years into the future. There’s also a walk-in linen cupboard.

The kitchen is very modern, reflecting the latest in country decor trends with a timber-topped island bench, Miele appliances, a built-in Miele coffee maker, and a gas cooktop. Predominantly white, the country feel is accentuated by the timber plate racks and country-style white cabinet doors. The kitchen island looks out from floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the shady patio and the heated saltwater inground pool with a natural rock cave and a waterfall.

The Homestead has zoned in-slab heating, hydronic heating, combustion fireplace, ducted evaporative cooling and double glazing on the north wing side, essential for the heat in summer. The outdoor area includes a built-in barbeque and serving area, with outdoor dining which is set under a pergola with shade sail adjacent to the in-ground pool, a chessboard with oversized chess pieces, a greenhouse, and a children’s playground.

For those who need workshops or hobby areas, there is a barn style shed (16 x 12 metres) which has power and a concrete floor.

Tarra Cottage, smaller but equally modern, would be a fantastic rental, or a home for grandparents, family or friends. Far enough away from Tarra Homestead so privacy is maintained, it has open plan living, a fully enclosed wrap around sunroom, a nearly new kitchen, double garage, double carport, and has a separate ‘granny’ flat and a studio.

In a word, spectacular.

    Andrew Kristoffersen Andrew Kristoffersen 12:45 pm 11 Apr 20

    Ella we would need a bit of money aye.. know anyone who would want to live in the other house?

    Catherine Kay Catherine Kay 1:21 pm 11 Apr 20

    Haha, I think you'd need all of us combined to afford that place. But yeah, I'm in.

    Imagine being in iso in that place 😍

    Sharon Kristoffersen Sharon Kristoffersen 1:23 pm 11 Apr 20

    Would if i could....price??

    Sharon Kristoffersen Sharon Kristoffersen 3:19 pm 11 Apr 20

    Ella sounds awesome but i think i could only afford the granny flat

    Catherine Kay Catherine Kay 4:18 pm 11 Apr 20

    Sharon Kristoffersen that's the point though, Mum.

    Looking at the floor plan, I could see Ella and Andrew taking bedroom 2, Ash and Sam bedroom 5. You and I take bedroom 3/4.

    You could have a whole other family in the smaller house, and still have the main bedroom free for some rich friend to live there ;)

    That's obviously a fantasy, considering how long of a commute it would be (15 minutes just to get back to Nichols/Gold Creek, 42 minutes to get across to Queanbeyan), and how we all have current commitments to our own locations. But it's a nice idea, and probably the only way we will all be able to afford our own home AND be relatively close to each other.
