For Belle Property Braidwood real estate agent Ashley Williams, the appeal of 508 Manar Road is clear.

“This property is the typical country getaway that you think of when you want to escape the city,” she says.

“It really has that country charm – everything comes together to give this property a feeling of a country homestead where you can stretch your legs.”

Built in 2014, the four-bedroom home features a burnished concrete floor throughout, a four car double garage, three bathrooms (including an ensuite) and timber French doors that open onto a wrap-around verandah.

“A home like this would be perfect for someone looking for a lifestyle change from the city,” Ashley says.

“It can be their country getaway, where they can enjoy nature and the amazing 360-degree views.”

The large kitchen boasts a traditional wood-fuelled wetback ESSE 990 range cooker, three large ovens and Falcon 900 mm Professional gas-electric cooker.

The home also boasts a covered patio area, ready to host your friends and family or the perfect place to relax after a hard work day as the sun goes down.

“A standout feature is the rolling grazing hills and the mountain views,” Ashley says.

“Whenever you look out of the windows, there is always something beautiful to catch your eye.”

The land surrounding the house includes two large paddocks, established gardens and natural open bush, as well as 800 metres of Manar Creek frontage as a water source on the property.

508 Manar Road can be purchased with all land available – 120.80 hectares – or with a reduced allotment of 70.97 hectares.

“You have two options, and both are ready to go,” Ashley says.

“It just depends on how much land a buyer wants.”

Ashley says there is plenty of outdoor space to enjoy with either option.

“The creek offers some great spots where you can go swimming or just enjoy some time outside in the summertime.

“If you’re a horsey person, there’s lots of space on the property for trail rides.

“People can hike around their property and spot some animals – there’ll be lots of kangaroos and echidnas and wombats.”

There is also a solar hot water system, two 13,000 tanks and access to a Starlink satellite for internet and mobile reception.

The home is located approximately 25 km from Bungendore and 27 km from Braidwood.

Ashley says that despite its rural setting, the home also offers easy access to other attractions.

“If you want to travel to Canberra, you can,” she says.

“If you want to head down to the coast, it’s also an easy commuting distance at just a bit over an hour away.”

Ashley says that while many homes in the Bungendore area have acreage, this property is unique for its size.

“When you have a build of this quality and those amazing mountain views, they come together for a really, really nice feel,” she says.

“There’s not very many 298-acre properties in the area on the market.

“This home would be perfect for someone looking for some peace and quiet where they can have a rural lifestyle and run some animals.”
