75 Bankers Road in Bywong is 15 years young and waiting for the next owner of this one-of-a-kind home.

Ray White Canberra Licensed Sales Agent Chris Dixon says the current long-term owners – Helmut and Caron – were behind the build and design of the incredible residence.

“They built this to be a contemporary retreat for their family, in a modern style in a very private and secluded spot,” he says.

“It’s with a heavy heart that Helmut and Caron have decided to move on, but it’s really served their family well.”

The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home is set back from the hustle and bustle (and stress) of modern life in rural NSW across nearly two hectares of private land.

“An electric gate with Corten feature inserts is the first in a long list of impressive features,” Chris says.

Make it past the gate and drive up the driveway to take one of the nine (yes, you read that right) parking spaces before heading inside.

Porcelain tiles in the living area and spotted gum timber floors in the foyer and formal lounge room add to the feeling of luxury, as do the high square-set ceilings and expansive living rooms – four in total.

The home also features a library room, a walk-in butler’s pantry in the kitchen, reverse-cycle air conditioning, 20 kW solar panels, integrated Miele appliances and a slow-combustion fireplace.

“A wide entrance door leads to an extravagant foyer with a wall of glass affording uninterrupted views out to the 18-metre pool with two lanes,” Chris says.

“The house has been designed to capture the hilltop views over surrounding bushland, as well as the verdant grounds and gardens, complete with veggie patch and netted orchard.”

Chris says this property’s “hidden treasure” is its access to nearly 40 extra hectares of land to explore.

“It’s part of Hideaway Estate, which is comprised of eight properties, and all have access to just over 37 hectares of land in its natural state,” Chris says.

“People can step out of their front door and walk directly into bushland to bird watch, paint or bushwalk through the land.”

Hideaway Estate also has a community bore, while the home boasts a 100,000-litre water tank.

For Chris, Bywong brings together a rural lifestyle with easy access to the city.

“It’s a region that is only 18 minutes out of Canberra and very well-situated on the city’s northeastern side.

“There is good access to not only Canberra itself but also the South Coast of NSW or even Sydney if you want to commute there.

“For properties like this, we do often field inquiries from people looking to relocate to the Canberra area for family or work from Sydney or the Southern Highlands.”

Chris says the home would likely suit families looking to settle into a rural lifestyle with room to roam.

“Properties of this scale rarely come onto the market,” he says.

It combines easy access to the natural world (and some stunning views of capital country) with plenty of space for friends and family.

“This home has a real resort-style feel to it,” he says.

“The home has low maintenance rendered brick exteriors and has been designed specifically to capture the northern sun.”

“It’s very elegant design, and does have a timeless feel.”

It’s also ready for the new owner to move in and start living from the moment they’re handed the keys

“People can just book the removalist truck and move in – there’s not a single thing they need to do,” he says.

“They just need to throw their swimmers on and start enjoying the pool this summer!”
