A stunning large family home with breathtaking views over the Clare Valley has gone on the market in the rural area of Wamboin – just 25 minutes’ drive from Canberra’s CBD.

Built two years ago, the large five-bedroom open-plan house at 380 Denley Drive is on the market for $1.1-$1.2 million and is already attracting a lot of interest, particularly from potential Canberra buyers.

Listing agent Michael Pead from Peter Blackshaw Real Estate said it is a “spectacular house” and is attracting a lot of interest because more and more people are looking to make a lifestyle change while still having access to the convenience and amenities of the city.

“Wamboin itself is a rural setting on the fringe of Canberra’s border and that has big appeal for a lot of people,” he said.

Mr Pead said that a lot of houses in Wamboin are 15-20 years old or older, whereas the Denley Drive property “is one of the few new builds in the area”.

“One of the trump cards is the view. The property looks over the Clare Valley and the views are unbelievable.”

Mr Pead said the home is top-of-the-range in terms of finishes and quality, as well as being very self-sufficient with double-glazed windows, a solar hot water system and a 105,000-litre water tank.

The house has a 264 square-metre living area and sits on 4.28 hectares of land.

“The biggest impression that I had when I first came through the home was that sense of space and ideal floorspace for a family,” Mr Pead said.

“It is the luxury of having a lot of space and not being cordoned off by your neighbours – it is ideal family living.

“From the moment you step foot inside you will be drawn to the natural light, high ceilings and large open plan living spaces perfect for entertaining and accommodating a large family.

“The home seamlessly flows from room to room with three separate living areas allowing for the family to come together or for a little bit of peace and quiet.”

Mr Pead said the home has five generously-sized bedrooms with an option for a study, while the spacious segregated master bedroom includes a walk-in-robe and ensuite.

“Caesar stone bench-tops are throughout the kitchen, bathroom and powder room adding to the quality finishes that this home boasts,” he said.

Wamboin is 16 kilometres north-east of Canberra and only around 15 minutes’ drive to the Dickson shopping centre.

For more information about the property please contact Mr Pead on 6175 7431 or 0431 937 684 or click here to go to the website. The home is open for inspection today (Saturday, September 23) from 11 am to 12 noon.
