Binalong is just past Yass, around 75 minutes from Canberra’s city centre. It’s a peaceful town, with a population of around 500, offering a country lifestyle and the peace and quiet that comes with it. The home at 28-32 Mylora Street in Binalong was constructed in 2010, and is a striking country homestead.
Built in a traditional country farmhouse style, with verandahs, sash windows, high ceilings, a wide hallway and overlooking farmland, the three-bedroom, one-bathroom home has stylish modern finishes, and a colour palette of beautiful muted browns, with feature walls of a darker hue which create a warm, comforting home.
There is also a separate bungalow on the property, with an open plan living, kitchen and dining area, separate bedroom that equally striking.
“This is a lovely home,” said LJ Hooker sales agent Naish Stormon, “and it isn’t often you will find a 2010 build with such a well thought out plan with such classical country features. There’s also separate accommodation in the one bed, one bathroom bungalow.”
“The home sits on a small hill, commanding beautiful views across the countryside and farmland, and is only 10 minutes to Yass. It would make the perfect treechange property for people wanting to escape the city,” he said.
Set on a block of 5311 square metres (around 1.3 acres), the landscaped gardens surrounding the home provide a cool and calming exterior. French doors are used strategically throughout the home adding an indoor/outdoor living feel, and the interior is entirely enchanting.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, with a large island bench, a six-burner gas cooktop, open-plan dining and french doors out to the alfresco dining area. The hallway is wide enough to house a piano and a living/family area, without obstructing the passage, and leads from the front door through to the bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen/dining. The formal living room has a beautiful sense of space, and an additional large sunroom is perfect for sunny winter afternoons, with a polished concrete floor and high ceilings.
The bedrooms are well-appointed, and the bathroom tastefully tiled and featuring a big showerhead, perfect for a long hot shower using the continuous gas hot water. The well-insulated home is heated and cooled by reverse-cycle split system air conditioning.
The bungalow is a self-contained home with barn doors, a living/dining area, a small kitchen, a lovely bedroom and its own bathroom. The bedroom also houses a study area, and has a wall of bookcases, perfect for a library or studying or working from home.
With exposed ceiling beams and a high roof, the bungalow feels spacious and is perfect for guest accommodation, or family members. It is a building in an ‘L’ shape, with the living/dining, kitchen, bathroom one axis, and the bedroom on the other.
