We’re proud to have worked on this amazing property. The owners John and Rachael have enjoyed the video and we hope buyers feel the same way. John and Rachael have really created a masterpiece, from both old and new materials.
The question we have been asked most, ‘why are they leaving?’ The reason is, an iconic local property ‘Nanima’ came on the market last year with some historically significant buildings. John and Rachael saw so much potential, and couldn’t walk away, they bought it. So they now are working hard at ‘Nanima’ , otherwise they would not have sold ‘Green Acres’.
It is difficult to come up with the words that do this property justice. Superlatives such as stunning and stylish are often over used and misapplied. In this instance they don’t go far enough.
Meticulously planned in every detail and Craftsman built, this award winning home is a seamless blend of Old World charm and modern convenience. Wherever possible, materials from a bygone era have been sourced from around Australia to be repurposed and brought back to life, adding an ambience born from their collective history. From an Edwardian fireplace to Sydney Bluegum, and Brushbox timber floors that once graced the Botany Bay Woolsheds, from Turpentine bridge timbers that now span the family room to cabinetry sourced from circa 1930’s homes in the Gundagai region, the list of materials is both exhaustive and fascinating.
A myriad of both passive and active technologies have been cleverly integrated within the design to provide those creature comforts that have become part of our expectations. Double glazing throughout, in-slab heating, reverse cycle air conditioning and Bose surround sound exemplify the measures taken.
The grandeur of the design needs to be seen in person to be appreciated. Opulent rooflines highlighted by the turreted north westerly aspect and a majestic picture window, designed to capture the spectacular outlook, are stand outs. Diamond cut Adelaide Bluestone and original cast iron fret work adorn the facade and personify the character of the design.
Cleverly positioned within the productive 200 acres the main residence is afforded views across a spectacular rural setting and uncompromised privacy, both from neighbours and from the second residence.
The additional residence is substantial in its own right and would serve well as a manager’s residence or for extended family.
Those with agricultural interests can indulge their dreams, whether they be cattle, equine or perhaps a winery. Located approximately thirty minutes from the Canberra CBD, “Green Acres” adjoins other prestigious properties in the historic Gundaroo region whilst being within close proximity to the thriving village.
Properties of this calibre are rare in this region and this one is reflective of the Southern Highlands. If your dreams extend to your very own country estate and you desire the very best in life, then “Green Acres” could be the answer. Continue making smart decisions and book your inspection today.
