A home on the range offering lifestyle with holiday income potential is currently listed with Snowy River Real Estate, 522 Bulgundra Road, Berridale.

The landscape around Berridale is striking, with Australia’s highest peaks, a spectacular backdrop, and granite boulders dotting the sweeping Monaro Plains.

Listed at $645,000 and set high on its 135 acres of land, this lovely three-bedroom, timber-clad home looks out over the sweeping plains, under a big sky. You can hear no other humans, just birds and the breezes.

A veranda wraps around the entire home, so you can have your tea, breakfast or lunch while taking in the stunning views from every angle. Watch the shifting grasses in the breeze, your granite outcrops, the clouds, all from your personal retreat.

The spacious living room takes in the views as far as the eye can see, and it opens on to a further large deck overlooking the lovingly nurtured garden. The current owner has planted many deciduous and European trees, meaning much shade and colour about the property.

In the living room, there is a slow-combustion wood burner as well as reverse cycle air conditioner, catering for all the Monaro’s temperatures. There’s also a separate dining room and kitchen with gas cooking.

The separate kitchen can be easily converted to create a large open-plan living area, the better to take in the window views from every corner.

There are three bedrooms – the main with a walk-in robe and ensuite, and a second room which also has a walk-in robe. The main bathroom has a shower with separate bath.

A myriad European trees have been planted by the English owner.

There’s an enormous shed/garage on the property, half of which has been tastefully converted into a two-bedroom apartment, an ideal teenage retreat or a winter rental for keen skiers and snowboarders. The cute flat is fully insulated and has separate power, gas and septic.

The garage still offers parking for two cars, lawnmower, a workshop area and storage for all necessary tools for the farm.

The property has three water tanks offering an abundant 132,000 litres of rainwater and there is an approved fully-functioning septic system in place.

There are also two dams on the property and even a permanent creek, which has a pump connected for water to the house.

With power directly to the property, you will want for nothing and can spend your days pottering in the garden and enjoying the space and sensational outlook.

Beautifully positioned, the house itself is off the beaten track. The historic town of Dalgety is 5km away, a pretty town on the banks of the Snowy River. There you’ll find a popular hotel, cafe, cold-climate winery and microbrewery.

Dalgety was at one time the chosen location for our capital city, Canberra. It’s 1.5 hours’ drive to Canberra and the South Coast and 45 minutes to the NSW ski fields.

The property is 12 minutes drive from Berridale, and 25 minutes from Jindabyne. Berridale is a charming town in the NSW Snowy Mountains near pristine lakes for fishing and Kosciuszko National Park for bushwalking, mountain biking and horseriding. All the snowfields are within easy reach, and there’s Eucumbene Trout Farm, and cold climate wineries.

With skiing, hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and all forms of water sports at your doorstep, you can own your lifestyle.

522 Bulgundara Road is selling for $645,000. For more information or to make an appointment, call Patrick or Caitlin of Snowy River Real Estate on 0411 136 645.
