The trouble with many older homes is that although they might ooze charm and character, they can also be riddled with costly age-related issues. On the other hand, this majestic country home offers the best of both worlds.
Blackshaw real estate agent Ryan Thomas describes 71 Briars Sharrow Road in Carwoola as “a very grand sort of home”.
“The first thing that stood out for me is that it’s actually not as old as it looks.,” Ryan says.
The style might appear vintage, but the main home was built in 1990. The design echoes the charm of a French chateau and includes intricate metal lacework, old sandstone bricks, and no fewer than four working fireplaces.
This home treats you to a lavish entrance hall with a grand staircase and polished wooden floors. Upstairs, the enormous master suite flows into a tastefully renovated ensuite, and three other bedrooms are fitted with large windows for natural light and stunning nature views.
Exuding quality throughout, the property features a compelling approach to both formal and informal entertaining. An extension in 2006 saw the open-plan dining and living area downstairs expanded. This opens up to an outdoor entertaining area hosting a bar and plenty of seating space overlooking a saltwater pool and impressive views of surrounding mountains and nature.
“The current owners have been there since 2017 and done a lot of work to the property, clearing out the paddocks and establishing the vegetable gardens, dog run and plenty more,” Ryan says.
The property consists of 14 acres and has its very own tennis court, gazebo, sunroom, and swimming pool to accommodate any weather or interests.
“Whether or not you play tennis, the courts would also make a great place for kids to ride their bikes,” Ryan says.
He says that he has held five inspections so far, with the most interested parties consisting of Canberra families looking for more space in the country.
“Everyone loves the area. It’s a highly sought-after spot and it’s a very private home. It can’t be seen from any road, but you can still enjoy stunning views on every side.”
Carwoola sits between Queanbeyan and Captains Flat, boasting the best of rural life while never far away from the conveniences of the city. The property is fenced off to ensure privacy without compromising its views of the serene, rural outdoors.
This home will go to auction on Wednesday, 15 December, at 5:30 pm on site.
