A country homestead on 100 acres of rural pasture is for sale 30 minutes’ drive from Canberra and offers the ‘rare opportunity’ to live on a farm while still being close to the city.

The recently renovated three-bedroom homestead at 2963 Dog Trap Road, Jeir, is set on gently undulating land 15 minutes from Hall Village and close to local wineries.

To be auctioned on 25 July, it boasts lovely rural views and a classic country look and feel aided by an updated country-style kitchen and a full-length bull-nose verandah.

“It has outstanding views and is a beautifully-finished classic old-world style homestead,” said listing agent Mark Johnstone of Ray White Canberra.

“It provides for the classic Australian dream of living on acreage but at the same time being close to Canberra.”

The home was built in 1998 but has been recently renovated, with new carpet throughout, fresh paint and quality finishes.

The light-filled homestead also features high ceilings, feature cornices and a large master bedroom with his and hers walk-in robes.

The land has been divided into nine paddocks and provides both good pasture and plenty of water.

It is suited for grazing stock as an additional income source, or for pursuits such as horse-riding and enjoying the wide open spaces.

Outbuildings include four stables, a large machinery shed, garaging and a studio/office with a bathroom/laundry.

Mr Johnstone said that the block has dual occupancy entitlement, offering some high-quality building sites with lovely views in all directions.

He said that the property is unusual in that it is one property but is divided by a road into two parcels with two separate entrances. One parcel of land is 60 acres and includes the homestead and infrastructure while the other is 40 acres.

“The property is also in close proximity to local wineries and could potentially be further developed with eco-style cabins/bed & breakfast – subject to council approval,” Mr Johnstone said.

The property will be auctioned at the Bradman Room, Manuka Oval, on Thursday 25 July at 6 pm.
