Combining the best of modern architecture and a country homestead, Karanya at 84 Fairview Road at Springrange is an executive five-bedroom, two-bathroom home with extensive outdoor living options and countryside views which stretch all the way to the horizon.

With a floorplan which separates the master suite from the four other bedrooms and a family and entertaining zone in the middle of the home, it is located in the green and gentle hills at Springrange in NSW, an increasingly popular locality in the Yass Valley, 30 km north of Canberra.

Entering the home through the front door, a sandstone entrance connects with an interior sandstone feature wall, and the home opens out into an expansive open plan kitchen, dining, and lounge room. The kitchen has an island bench, with Caesarstone bench-tops, a two drawer dishwasher, induction cooktop, modern Bosch appliances and plenty of storage space.

The lounge area exemplifies indoor-outdoor living, with glass sliding doors opening to the outdoor ironbark deck on both sides of the room. The open plan style has been cleverly designed, with sliding doors into the wall cavities enabling each room to be closed off if needed. The generous living space has built-in cabinetry for electrical equipment, and storage, and a slow combustion wood fireplace to keep the home warm in winter.

The master bedroom suite is in the eastern wing of the home, with its own access to the ironbark deck, and secluded from the other four bedrooms. The walk-in robe has every kind of storage you will ever need, and is extremely generous in size. The light-filled ensuite has a picture window providing views of the countryside, and the ensuite has a shower, heated towel rack, and a toilet. The master bedroom also has a private deck, accessed through French doors, with views of the green countryside beyond.

All bedrooms have French doors to access the stunning deck, and ample built-in robes for storage. They are generous in size, and will accommodate any family and their guests easily. The family bathroom is separate from the toilet, and has a full-length bath and shower.

The alfresco living and dining areas are where the home shines. The ironbark deck surrounds the bedroom wing of the home, and an extended deck reaches out from the lounge room, creating an outdoor living zone unparalleled in suburbia.

As impressive as the home is on its own, that’s not all that’s on offer. The home is situated on fifty acres (20.24 hectares) of prime agricultural land, with equine fencing, enclosed stables, round yards, and ample stock shelters. The water is supplied via a 120,000-litre water storage at the home, and 30,000 litres via two tanks at the stables. A deep, drought-proof bore is piped through the property to troughs and a digital pop-up sprinkler system which keeps the lawns surrounding the home green and lush throughout summer.

The home is connected to NBN satellite internet with category 5 cabling throughout the home, and a Foxtel satellite dish connected to the main living areas and the master bedroom suite.

Ray White sales agent George Southwell says the property is an extraordinary opportunity for those wanting to live close to Canberra, but have a rural lifestyle in a luxurious residence.

“This home is really well planned and thought out,” said Mr Southwell.

“It has everything a family could need, from the entertaining and outdoor zones to the versatility provided by the interior sliding doors which enable you to separate spaces when needed.

“And it’s so convenient to Canberra and Yass, only nine minutes from the Hall Village and 20 minutes or so from everything on offer in the Nation’s Capital, you have the best of both worlds, really.

“The land that Karanya is on is prime grazing land for horses, or cattle, or the sheep that Yass Valley is famous for. The property is well-equipped to graze livestock of any kind, whether for agistment or for yourself.”

The property will be auctioned on 6 December, at 2:00 pm.
