Set on approximately 16 acres of gently sloping country and offering two separate and self-contained residences – not to mention a spectacular pool – picturesque 107 Bingley Way has to be one of Wamboin’s most outstanding properties.

Architecturally designed to blend with the surrounding landscape and capture the outstanding views, the main house offers four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a double lock-up garage with internal access.

Belle Property Queanbeyan real estate agent Ryan Broadhurst says the timber construction and soaring ceilings make for appealing country charm, and he cites them as highlights.

“It’s got a real homely feel to it,” he says.

Without a doubt, it is a place where you will find yourself wanting to relax and unwind, whether it be outside by the pool or fire pit or inside in one of the many airy spaces.

Cathedral ceilings, spotted gum floorboards, and expansive rural views from every room are matched with a genuine level of comfort throughout.

“It’s a really nice outlook from the main house, and then there’s also a three-bedroom, two-bathroom separate cottage which is a huge bonus.”

Gas-boosted hydronic wall heaters create toasty warmth in winter, while a double-sided freestanding slow-combustion wood heater provides both heat and a lovely ambience. In summer, the layout of the home allows for cross ventilation, with high ceilings and ceiling fans making the executive country home easy to live in.

Add to this the economic benefit from the home’s double-glazed windows which help to keep the bills down year-round.

The kitchen is custom designed in classic country style and built with family and entertainment in mind. Bright, light and airy with room to feast, this room is positioned to allow easy access to the outdoor entertaining area and, beyond that, the beautiful in-ground pool.

The home office has built-in cabinetry and sits on the mezzanine level giving it fantastic views across the property.

Ryan says the current owners raised their two daughters here and are now looking to downsize.

“It would make an excellent place to raise kids, or just accommodate extended family.”

The unique floor plan of this home was designed with flexibility in mind. There are four bedrooms, two of which are lay at the top of a spiral staircase. The downstairs rooms are connected and made ideal places for study and extra accommodation for sleepovers for the current family’s growing children.

The remaining two bedrooms are fitted out with ensuites, gorgeous views and stylish décor.

An essential part of the appeal of this home is the colourful and fragrant established gardens with custom-built pétanque pitch and fire pit area. Planted in the manner of a traditional cottage garden, there are climbing roses, apple trees and wisteria, to name a few.

The vast water-capture areas and large dam ensure there is always ample water available.

The second dwelling is a beautifully renovated three-bedroom and two-bathroom cottage which sits privately on the crest of the hill, making the ideal spot for extended family and friends with the potential to be rented out for extra income.

Wamboin is northeast of the ACT border, a 20-minute drive from Civic and about 10 minutes from Queanbeyan. Services in the area include a community centre and a rural fire brigade.

This property will go to auction at 5 pm on Tuesday, 5 October.
