Situated near the peaceful village of Michelago, a short drive from Canberra, this stunning architect designed home occupies the ideal position on the 120 acres of rare Murrumbidgee river frontage. While boasting spectacular views of the surrounding bush land, those of the river are beyond description. With easy access to the river 100 metres from your doorstep, you can be enjoying a swim or kayak with the local platypus in the magnificent waterhole in minutes.
This treated pine pole and white cypress log home is positioned to sympathetically blend in with the natural environment. Orientated with a northerly aspect, the passive solar design embraces the sun’s benefits and, no matter what time of year, the slightest ray of sunshine will warm the home. However, on those days when the sun is hiding behind a cloud, the French-imported Cheminees Philippe Bay fireplace is sure to keep you warm. The design also ensures that the tiniest breeze will cool the home on the hottest of summer days.
Found 15 minutes from the ACT border, 30 minutes from Tuggeranong and only 90 minutes to Jindabyne, this home really is perfectly located whether you’re looking to escape the rat-race of city life, or trying to find the central point between the city and the snow!

This could be your chance to make the lifestyle change you’ve been waiting for…
