This magnificent 40-acre property at 518 Kaveneys Road at Jeir, only 30 minutes from Canberra city centre, has really turned on the charm ahead of its spring auction on September 10.

Selling agent Mark Johnstone from Ray White Canberra said visitors to last weekend’s open home were “bedazzled” as they soaked in the views over rolling farmland to the snow-capped Brindabella Ranges.

“This really is a stunning property at any time of year, but the view of the snow on the mountains in the distance from the huge double glazed windows in the living area was impressive,” he said.

He said this was a rare opportunity to own a “showpiece rural property close to Canberra”.

“There’s never a better time for a tree change. This home has plenty of space and would definitely suit a growing family seeking the peace of a rural setting, but at the same time with easy access into the city.”

With five generous bedrooms, three bathrooms and sprawling living areas, Springfield homestead commands prime position for spectacular panoramic views of the Brindabella Ranges and undulating countryside from picture windows in every room.

Mr Johnstone said the home boasted high standard of finishes to extensions completed over the last three years, with separate living areas and an “absolutely massive” master suite.

“Lovingly renovated in all the right ways, you’ll enjoy the classy combination of a country homestead and modern upgrades,” he added.

The charm of stone exterior walls creates a lovely contrast to the soothing surrounding gardens. Stained glass windows enhance the main entry, with exquisite slate flooring flowing through to the timber country kitchen and open family area – complete with a slow combustion fireplace.

French doors open to the formal dining and lounge with parquetry timber floor, stone fireplace and views as far as the eye can see across the mountain ranges. In the afternoon, the glistening sunshine blankets this north western aspect with warmth and slowly fades into the crimson beauty of a true country sunset.

Four light-filled and spacious bedrooms and a separate study form the southern wing of the home. One bedroom has an ensuite and large walk-in robe, while the master parent’s sanctuary has an enormous ensuite and walk-in robe plus peaceful views across the mountains. Both ensuites, the contemporary main bathroom and mudroom offer underfloor heating.

The property also boasts an outdoor entertaining area incorporating an in-ground solar heated salt water pool.

Located only 12 minutes’ drive from historic Hall township in Canberra’s blue-ribbon Murrumbidgee catchment area, the property is well-maintained, with excellent soil for pasture and ample water supplied by tanks, bores and three dams.

There are seven well pastured paddocks, quality fencing, equestrian facilities including four-stall stable with tack room, outside yard crush and wash bay.

“This property is set up for horse enthusiasts and is ideal for anyone wanting to work from remotely in these current times, with plenty of space for a home office and satellite NBN. There’s a rural bus servicing Canberra schools, making it perfect for a growing family,” Mr Johnstone said.
