Nestled in the beautiful Primrose Valley about 30 kilometres from Queanbeyan is an amazing country property which boasts three homes, breathtaking views, waterfalls, a running river full of trout, an abundance of wildlife and plenty of land for cattle or sheep farming.

‘Tinnenburra’ at 1810 Woolcara Lane, Captains Flat, is on the market for $1.8 million to $2 million and includes a luxurious four-bedroom main house, a one-bedroom cottage and a stylish two-bedroom lodge with views across the valley.

The tribute to country living is also brought to life through 359.65 hectares of land suitable for cattle or sheep, nine dams, two bores, five rainwater supply tanks, a small orchard, a veggie patch, and a large five-car metal garage with a workshop.

Listing agent Ben Mills of Ray White Queanbeyan/Jerrabomberra can’t think of enough adjectives to describe ‘Tinnenburra’ and would clearly love to own the property himself – as would his Dad.

“I’ve taken Dad there three times and each of the three times when we get back we have to rush to the newsagent to buy lottery tickets because it’s that special,” Mr Mills said.

“I’ve never seen anything like it – it’s one of a kind.”

Mr Mills lists some of the property’s best features as including the secluded location, the wildlife, the views, the opportunities for fishing, the spectacular lodge and the way the main house is designed – with its own library, spacious bedrooms and its own wine cellar downstairs.

He said that the property also offers the big advantage of its potential to provide a sideline income running cattle or sheep or renting out the homes.

“With the lodge nestled up at the back of the property, this could be used as a rental retreat for couples, families or people interested in fishing as there are plenty of trout in the running river,” Mr Mills said.

The main house has spacious verandahs at the front and back and is a tasteful blend between the original cottage built in the 1940s and the extension built in the last few years.

Downstairs there is a generous lounge and combined main bedroom, a luxurious bathroom with a large freestanding bath overlooking the garden, an attractive kitchen with plenty of storage and bench space, a sitting room, another bedroom and a study.

Upstairs is a large open family room, an attached study, a bedroom and en-suite. To the back of the main residence is a three-car garage, a cinema/library space, a storeroom and a kitchenette and a wine cellar.

The cottage was built in 2015 and could make a good caretaker’s cottage. It is open plan and includes a large bedroom and a deck area with ramp access.

The two-bedroom ‘Platypus Lodge’ is about 10 minutes’ drive from the main residence and sits on top of a hill with magnificent views of the river and the mountains.

Built in 1972, the stylish lodge features timber flooring, wood fires and a deck to take in those views.
