If you’ve been looking for a property where you can pull on some wellies and get your hands dirty, this is the property for you.

Ray White Rural Canberra, Yass and Murrumbateman CEO George Southwell said 10 Charolais Place in Murrumbateman is one country property you won’t have to leave.

“You can be self-sufficient – you don’t have to go to the shops with a property like this,” George says.

“You could really live off the land and have the space to run some stock if you wanted to, as well.”

Set on 2.4 acres at the rear of Merryville Estate development in a cul-de-sac, the home has one bedroom, one bathroom and mid-century accents throughout the house.

“The house has a very interesting design,” said George.

“It’s like walking into your own English cottage but with more space than those normally have.”

“It’s a modern building but with historic charm.”

When the winter chill strikes, the electric AGA stove, a fireplace and the home’s north-facing aspect will help to keep you warm.

The country feel doesn’t keep to the house’s four walls, with other features on the property that offer the best of country living (should you choose to partake).

“The views from the upstairs windows, across the valley, are also quite special,” George explains.

“The front of the house has a bird aviary that overlooks the top part of the garden, which is among the most stunning I’ve seen, along with an additional apiary enclosure, established vegetable garden and solar panels.”

Whether you are country-raised or are looking for an alternative to concrete cities, George says the area has everything you could ever need.

“We’ve got so much going on in Murrumbateman. We’ve got two early childhood education centres, we’ve got multiple doctors, a dentist, a supermarket, takeaway shops and mechanics.

“The town has everything someone could need while being close enough to Canberra that people can easily take a short trip or holiday there.”

This is a property where the prospective owner can find a country sanctuary while still having enough room to see family and friends.

“In my mind, it would be ideally suited to a young family that would come out to start their lives in Murrumbateman. Alternatively, it could suit an older couple who are downsizing from the large family home but don’t want to leave a rural community behind,” he says.

“You can come out into town and immerse yourself among the population and get to know the people living here.

“Or you can tuck yourself away and be a hermit if you want to be – we don’t judge our hermits here!”
