This stunning property is in Goulburn, but you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d woken up in France.

Established gardens with neatly trimmed hedges, dormer windows and three-metre-high ceilings provide a sense of grandeur and European elegance at 250 Run-O-Waters Drive in Goulburn.

Ray White Goulburn selling principal Justin Gay says this had been done deliberately to give a sense that you’ve been transported to another world from the moment you enter the estate.

“It’s an absolute quality build in a French Provincial style,” he says.

“From the moment you enter the grand gateway and meander your way through the sealed driveway up to the home itself, you follow an elegant garden path.

“Then you reach the double solid timber doors to go inside, opening to a formal foyer.”

The property has plenty of space for entertaining friends and family, such as a formal dining room, a sitting room, an outdoor patio and a family room.

Justin has simple words to describe it. “It is a palatial home,” he says.

Even though it was built some 20 years ago, there are all the modern features that will make the next owner feel like royalty.

The five-bedroom, three-bathroom property boasts underfloor heating, French doors, a Miele stove and cooktop appliances, double-glazed windows and designer-made drapes.

A spa in the main bedroom, a conservatory and crystal chandeliers add touches of luxury.

A double-sided gas heater and reverse-cycle air conditioning will chase away the winter chill.

There is also a garage with spaces for three cars, and there are two water tanks to keep the grounds nourished.

“If they desire, the next owner can purchase furniture along with the property,” he says.

“A lot of the items were custom-made for the house or specifically purchased by the previous owner.”

The 5-acre landscaped gardens and mature trees provide a feeling of privacy.

“The home connects beautifully with the exterior,” Justin explains.

“It’s located at the top of the Run-O-Waters estate and was the developer’s own home so it overlooks the entire estate and out towards Bungonia National Park.

“From every room, there is a vista of the gardens that you just won’t get anywhere else,” he says.

This would be the perfect retreat from the busy demands of life for someone looking to downsize from a larger property – or looking to escape the city.

“If you’re coming from Canberra or Sydney, or a working farm, you can make a home here,” he says.

“It’s the epitome of country living, but it’s also five minutes to the CBD of Goulburn.”
