The elegant and luxurious residence at 515 Denley Drive has six bedrooms and three bathrooms, and was designed by the owner-builders, who are now selling the property.

Equipped with a large, in-ground solar-heated swimming pool and pool house, solar power, ducted vacuum system, solar hot water, and double-glazed windows, the home is set on 14.5 hectares of land in rural-residential Wamboin.

With a population of just 1700, Wamboin sits about 20 minutes’ drive from the Canberra CBD, 25 minutes from the Woden Town Centre, and about 10 minutes drive from the city of Queanbeyan.

LJ Hooker sales agent Tim Russell said the home was built in 2004 with love and an intention to produce a legacy of quality in an elegant residence, well-equipped for either a country lifestyle or a short commute.

“The owners have built this home and put their hearts and love into it,” said Mr Russell, “and the property is set up to be self-sufficient, with large infrastructure sheds for equipment, machinery or extra vehicles, three water tanks totalling over 120,000 litres of water, plus a large dam with a pressure pump, a bore with a 650-gallon capacity and a back-to-base security system.

“The home has solar power which generates 10.2 kilowatts, three-phase power and spectacular views through to Black Mountain and the snow-capped Brindabella Ranges in winter.”

The home is set in elegant landscaped gardens, with outdoor deck areas for entertaining and living, and alfresco dining. The gardens are immaculately maintained, and the pool house is equipped with a lounge area, and retractable concertina glass doors which open an entire wall of the pool house onto the pool deck.

With six large bedrooms, five with built-in robes and a master suite with a walk-in robe, the home has plenty of room for guests and family. The home has a master suite with a stunning ensuite, with under-tile heating, and the five other bedrooms are spacious and have floor-to-ceiling windows framing the stunning rural landscape. All wet areas have underfloor heating, a luxurious must-have in a cooler climate.

In addition to the bedrooms, you’ll also find a study, adding to the options available for working from home.

The living areas and kitchen are elegantly styled, with a slow combustion fireplace in the family room, and the formal lounge and ducted gas heating complements the internal combustion fireplaces.

Throughout the home, Jarrah hardwood timber floors add a touch of grace, formality and warmth. High ceilings add an extra feeling of space and light to the home. Indoor-outdoor living from the dining room to the terrace outside creates a connection with nature, and a panoramic rural view from the landscaped gardens and beyond.

The kitchen/family room also has floor-to-ceiling glass, concertina doors onto another external deck with a covered pergola inviting the countryside into the home. The kitchen is very well appointed, with an island bench and European appliances. The formal living room is elegant and timeless in style, and the formal dining room is similarly elegant.

The home also has a large double garage with internal access, a workshop at the rear of the garage, and there is a Canberra school bus which stops at the gate of the property.

This spectacular home will be auctioned on Wednesday, 21 October at 6:00 pm.
