Less than half an hour from Canberra town, a wooded driveway leads to a sophisticated country house where the only sound is nature at its best.

As we spend more time working and socializing at home, there has never been a more important time to love where you live.

Solely Properties sales agent Andrew Thorpe says “Cheriton,” at 705 Captains Flat Road in Carwoola, ticks all the boxes when it comes to resort-style, whether you’re looking for a tree change or a weekend getaway in the countryside that offers a unsurpassed lifestyle.

“This is a quality that touches the soul,” Andrew says.

“It’s in such a great location, just 9 miles from Queanbeyan, yet gives a feeling of being in the middle of nowhere, away from the hustle and bustle.”

With a price guide of $ 2.75 to $ 3 million, Andrew says the property is ideal for anyone working from home, commuting to Canberra, raising a family or seeking a peaceful place to retire.

Situated on approximately 24 acres of beautifully rolling grounds and surrounded by carefully maintained gardens, the five-bedroom house is light-filled and boasts a practical open design with several relaxed and formal indoor and outdoor living spaces.

“There is no saving on the cost of its creation with the expansive interior that exudes a relaxed sophistication from the moment you step in,” says Andrew.

“The stylish chef’s kitchen is unique and both entertainers and families will find this home an absolute pleasure to live in.”

The large kitchen has stone countertops with shiny glass top, an island bench with breakfast bar, an Electrolux double gas stove and a walk-in butlers pantry / laundry with an additional dishwasher and wine refrigerator.

The kitchen opens to a relaxed area for breakfast, watching TV or relaxing in front of the fireplace with slow burning, while the formal lounge and large dining area are ideal for dinner parties with stunning handmade Mexican terracotta tiles.

Andrew says family members and guests will appreciate the generous size of the five bedrooms and the study.

“The master suite is nothing short of breathtaking and features a king-size bedroom, a spacious walk-in robe, a sumptuous open and shared (with bedroom four) ensuite designed to perfection and connect to an extensive deck with built-in spa,” he say.

“Bedroom two is also adorned with a stylish bathroom with floor-to-ceiling tiles, a large shower with rain shower head, double sinks and toilet.”

Situated among established lawns is a chlorinated solar heated swimming pool and expansive tiled alfresco area.

“The large, open-plan living areas lead out to the stunning outdoor area and pool, all of which overlook the lush gardens,” says Andrew.

“It’s ideal for family gatherings at any time of the year.”

The property is well-appointed, where the north-facing home in picturesque surroundings surrounded by exquisite established gardens with European plantings provides a lovely setting that blends sympathetically with the surroundings of the bush.

“At the moment, it looks absolutely stunning with all the spring flowers and new growth,” says Andrew.

“When I was out there recently, it was a beautiful day and I looked out over the decorative dam and listened to the frogs croaking and the birds singing – what a lifestyle.”
