With a 2.9-acre block just three minutes from Bungendore’s centre and featuring bright, light and spacious design alongside beautifully treed grounds, this might be as good as contemporary rural living gets.
This solar-passive home was designed by Canberra’s award-winning Strine Environment’s Ric Butt and it is sure to appeal to those after a change in scenery.
Featuring a 10.8 kW solar system, a combustion fireplace, a reverse-cycle unit and underfloor heating (in the bathrooms), you’ll always be comfortable at 5 Elmslea Drive, Bungendore.
Ray White real estate agent Ellie Merriman said the home was full of amazing features.
“It’s a beautiful big home with so much space and natural light throughout, not to mention the home was designed by an award-winning architect,” she said.
“It has this fantastic indoor/outdoor connection with plenty of large windows all around the home and some great outdoor living spaces.”
In summer, the home benefits from shading, ventilation and shutters to the north, while thermal mass and insulation help to maintain an ambient temperature all-year round.
The entry captures light and air using a two-storey void to create an atrium.
Upstairs you’ll find a large open space created by the curved roof line with room for sofas, TVs and sleepovers, making it the perfect place for a retreat.
Downstairs is the billiards room that is currently being used as a gym, workshop and storage area. Floor-to-ceiling glazed doors open up onto an enclosed courtyard.
For those who like to entertain, you’re spoilt for choice. Guests can easily move between the open plan living, and in summer the sizeable north-facing terrace is shaded by soft green shrubs and a rainproof pergola.
The U-shaped kitchen will please the chef of the home – the centrepiece is a stunning five-burner Belling stove and plenty of bench space alongside a walk-in pantry fitted to accommodate all the culinary extras you could wish for.
The kitchen looks over the casual lounge and dining areas which is great for social cooking and family living.
Gardeners will enjoy the beautiful established grounds, there are fruit trees and vegetable beds and a new 12 x 9 metre shed with a concrete floor.
5 Elmslea Drive is conveniently located so you can walk to local cafes and restaurants and the town centre isn’t far either.
This home is close to all amenities with the school, shopping centre and train station only a short distance away.
Bungendore is an easy 30 to 35 minutes to Canberra, short 17 to 20 minutes from Queanbeyan and 8 minutes to HQ JOC, so if you are yearning to live in a country town yet be close to the city – and have all the creature comforts – your search may be over.
