It’s fair to say that when it comes to country life, there’s a particularly idyllic vision that arises – one of expansive views across green paddocks, a dam and quiet, comfortable living in a tranquil setting.
But that’s too good to be true, right?
Well, the stunning, spacious, 493 Denley Drive in Wamboin offers jaw-dropping views of rolling hills and pepper gum trees and makes the country dream a reality.
According to LJ Hooker real estate agent Kathy Komar, homes like these are a complete and utter rarity in today’s market.
“We all know how tight the market is at the moment, so seeing something like this come up has been quite a surprise,” she said.
An easy 30-minute drive from Canberra, the property itself is nestled on a five-acre elevated block.
“Looking out the window, you’ll have to pinch yourself to believe you’re really in your own home.
“The property offers incredible, sweeping views across the grounds and beyond,” Kathy said.
And, with large, floor-to-ceiling windows in the living spaces at the front of the home, you’re pretty much spoiled for choice when it comes to soaking up these stunning views.
Kathy says the home is perfect for a family looking to downsize and for people looking for all of the comforts country living can offer while still being within easy striking distance of Canberra.
“New owners will find the centre of Canberra only an easy 30-minute drive away, while Queanbeyan and its amenities are even closer,” she explained.
The five-acre block is also easily maintained as all landscaping has been done, and the upkeep is minimal. A triple barn-style garage and several water tanks also make rural living a little easier.
When it comes to the house, Kathy says it is move-in ready.
“There’s nothing immediate that needs attention. It’s in really good condition to move in and enjoy.
“I’d say it’s perfect for someone who has lots of imagination,” she said.
The spacious, single-level home has timber-look laminate flooring throughout.
The master bedroom is segregated with a walk-in-wardrobe and ensuite, allowing for privacy and tranquil seclusion.
“It is really nice to have this kind of privacy for the master in such a beautiful setting,” Kathy added.
Each of the other three bedrooms is also generous in size, and each has built-in-robes.
When it comes to entertaining and relaxation, this home is simply perfect. The large kitchen and living areas offer plenty of options, and you simply cannot get past the views.
The family room also contains a lovely slow combustion heater.
The kitchen boasts a large pantry alongside quality stainless steel appliances, meaning whipping up a gorgeous family meal has never been more appealing.
When it comes to storage, a separate laundry with both storage and bench space makes this a breeze.
