A spacious but tranquil country estate which draws its name from a William Yeats’ poem is on the market in Carwoola, just 15 minutes’ drive from Canberra.

Located next to a dam, the five-bedroom home at 28 Whiskers Creek Road sits on 20-acres of land and comes with an in-ground swimming pool, a two-bedroom flat, a large barn, a machinery shed and a recently added studio or ‘man-cave’ with a separate home office.

Named ‘Innisfree’ after the Irish poem ‘The Lake Isle of Innisfree’, the property offers the opportunity to enjoy a quiet country life by the water while still benefitting from close proximity to Canberra, with sealed roads all the way to its garage doors.

Listing agent Brett Hayman from Peter Blackshaw Woden & Weston Creek said that Innisfree is an amazing lifestyle retreat with all the benefits of country living, privacy and space to move.

To be auctioned on Saturday, June 2, the property was only listed on Thursday but is already attracting wide interest.

Mr Hayman said that the home stands out because of the attention to detail shown, the amount of accommodation it offers, and its location.

“Less than 30 minutes from Canberra’s CBD you’ve got this beautiful rural lifestyle,” Mr Hayman said.

The main house has extensive open plan living areas which connect seamlessly to the modern kitchen, which in turn overlooks the in-ground pool and picnic area by the large dam.

It has five bedrooms, with two of the bedrooms located on the ground floor, including the master bedroom which comes with an ensuite and stylish walk-in wardrobe.

Upstairs are the three other bedrooms (all with built-in wardrobes), as well as an oversized rumpus room or home gym and a separate open plan study with access to its own terrace.

The additional two-bedroom flat is modern and fully self-contained, with an open plan living area, a bathroom with a European laundry and its own deck to enjoy the views.

For more details contact Mr Hayman on 0411 414 624 or click here. The property will be open for inspection today (May 5) from 3.15 pm to 4 pm.
