Nestled in the green hills of the far South Coast, ‘Brightside’ at 10 Yourie Street, Quaama, is currently offered for sale at $525,000.
This neat three bedroom, two bathroom home has recently been listed by Julie Rutherford Real Estate of nearby Bermagui.
Think of how much enjoyment you could have with more than two acres of land right in the middle of the lush pastures of Quaama, in the beautiful Bega Valley, in addition to the comfort of this stylish, light-filled home.
The property’s current owners, Sharon and Debbie, are staying in the area, but wish to downsize. They have been enhancing this property and bestowing love on it for 11 years.
Bird lovers will delight in the various viewing decks and colourful gardens, being able to sit watching for hours, tuning out to the rest of the world.
“The community is great,” says Sharon. “Plus this place has made amazing gardeners out of us. You just put something in the ground and watch it grow!”
The well-insulated home has many attractive features, and Sharon and Debbie have enjoyed entertaining in its large indoor and outdoor spaces. With clean, neutral paint, LED downlights and attention to detail, this abode is ready to receive you.
The kitchen is modern and bright, recently fitted with new cabinetry and quality soft-close drawers. Resurfaced bamboo benchtops add to the mod-country feel of this space. The deep, porcelain farmhouse sink is a highlight – “You can fit a whole roasting dish in it,” says Debbie.
The kitchen also boasts a generous amount of pantry storage hidden behind bifold doors, plus a gas stovetop and integrated dishwasher. A handy servery window opens onto outdoor bench seating. The kitchen joins the light-filled, east-facing dining and breakfast area.
Excellent timber hardwood floors throughout all living areas and hallways have been recently resurfaced, and the bedrooms are finished with floating timber floors.
The ample lounge area features a wall of floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves and cabinets, and opens to an expansive outdoor living space, an impressive large timber deck that is perfect for entertaining year round. There is currently a spa on the deck, of which Debbie says, “I could be talked into leaving [behind].”
The deck is made from ironbark, and leads onto the lawns and gardens, with many spots for hammocks, bird watching, meditating or simply contemplating country life.
Three spacious bedrooms – two with built-in wardrobes – are fitted with exterior sliding glass doors that open out onto the surrounds. The master bedroom has picture rails and opens out onto the sheltered western-facing verandah, which is protected by colourful maples and other shady trees.
Another bedroom opens onto the front deck and morning sunshine. The third bedroom is perfect as a home office –with the NBN connected, working from home could be a perfect option.
The beautifully refurbished bathroom has a full-size bath and luxurious double shower. It also features stunning tile highlights, contemporary charcoal floors and is fitted for a hidden European laundry.
Three reverse cycle air-conditioners ensure maximum comfort all year round, and the 2kW solar system feeds back into the grid. Hot water is also supplied by a solar system.
The home has been constructed to a Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) rating of 29.
‘Brightside’ also boasts an approved, fully detached studio. With a kitchenette, bathroom, double bedroom and living space, this asset is perfect for extra guests, share living, a BnB opportunity or a private creative space. This structure also has a BAL of 29.
A separate lockable garage and carport ensures there is sheltered space for your vehicles and additional machinery.
The land itself has a permanent, spring-fed creek running through it. Boundaries are fully fenced and two paddocks are able to support some livestock. Because three sides of this large block are bordered by reserves, it is a very private, peaceful enclave.
“But we love our neighbours and the community is very supportive,” says Debbie. “You don’t need to be a third generation local to feel very welcome here.”
The established garden has an attractive, colourful mix of mature shade trees, plus many spaces to grow your own vegetables. There is already a large garden of raised beds that has been highly productive for the owners.
Having enjoyed life in this village, Debbie and Sharon say “it’s just a 100m walk to town for fuel, the post office and general store, and the primary school is also right there. Quaama has a seasonal market in the lovely hall, and there’s a really popular tennis club. And we have the best New Year’s Eve parties!”
The township of Quaama is only 25 minutes from thriving Bega, and 30 minutes from the superb beaches, shops and restaurants of Bermagui.
In its stunning bush setting, this fully renovated, landscaped property offers the delights of rural living along with the convenience of nearby village facilities and the charm of a bustling community life.
‘BrightSide’ offers an extremely attractive blend of rural style, convenience and privacy, all with the invitation to simply move straight in and enjoy your relaxed country life.
Land Size: 8398 sqm.
