A striking home with an English country garden and American barn-style stables is on the market just a short drive from Canberra in the prestigious Sutton Park Estate.
The home at 142 Cartwright Avenue, Sutton, sits on 4.32 hectares (10 acres) and is reached through an ironbark post-rail fencing and Manchurian pear-lined driveway.
To be auctioned on June 27, the house boasts a lovely Northerly aspect and features high ceilings, double-glazed timber windows, a central fireplace and bay windows.
Double doors open from all the living areas to a north-facing entertaining zone with views of the surrounding countryside.
Listing agent Ryan Broadhurst of Belle Property Kingston said the home really stands out.
“You catch a glimpse of it across the paddock and then driving in you see the stunning facade of the home. It’s really striking and very appealing,” he said.
Mr Broadhurst said the residence has been designed with ease of living and entertaining in mind. It is currently configured as a two bedroom, three bathroom home, but could easily be converted back to the original four bedroom plan.
Outside the home are American barn-style stables for horses, along with several holding yards. The large stables feature an additional lounge room and bathroom.
Beautifully landscaped and irrigated gardens surround the home, including a picturesque fountain and hedges. There is also a bore, multiple tanks and a dam.
The property has only just gone onto the market and Mr Broadhurst said it offers the opportunity for a tree change a short drive from Canberra in what is a tightly-held area.

The property will be auctioned onsite on Thursday 27 June 2019 at 5:30 pm.
