Gorgeous 3 bedroom country cottage with studio on 2 acres adjoining 200 acre common

One of the most affordable rural homes only 40 minutes from Canberra!

Set on one of the largest blocks in the tightly knit community of Buckingham Estate, just a few minutes out of the village of Bungendore, is this large 9164m2 (approx. 2 acres) rural property adjoins 200 acres of community land.

The exterior of this wonderful double storey, three bedroom country residence, was recently painted in a soft shade of cream that is complemented by the white French timber windows/door that open out from each room onto the wrap around verandah.

Without a doubt, whoever buys this home, will love sitting out with a cup of tea or glass of wine watching the kids/dogs play and admiring the stunning views of the fields and hills beyond!

The interior showcases timber cypress floors, high ceilings in the family room, and the decor is mostly set in palettes of cream with all the walls featuring picture rails.

A bright and airy, main living/dining room has an expanse of timber floor space and the second living area includes the meals/family room and an open plan kitchen with solid timber cupboards and glass case cupboards.

The large segregated master bedroom is located downstairs. With no neighbours facing the bedrooms, you won't have to close the curtains, just open the French doors and enjoy the stars! The other two generously sized attic style bedrooms with dormer windows, are located upstairs, along with a third living space which is ideal as a kids' TV/study room. The bathroom features a claw foot bath and separate shower and there's also a separate toilet off the laundry.

Heating is provided by the slow combustion wood heater and the home enjoys an amazing breeze through all the French doors during Summer. The block also has mature pine tree that border the western side, providing shade in the heat of the Summer.

Set in well maintained gardens, kept watered via the community bore, you can make the most of all the producing fruit trees planted over the years. We are told that fruit is plentiful and includes; grapefruit, orange, mandarin, fig, 3 cherry trees, 3 nectarines, 3 peaches, bloodplum, sugarplum, 2 apricot, several apple trees, 2 pears, 1 nashi, 7 chestnuts and 2 walnut trees. There's also fenced veggie gardens, an asparagus garden, a chook pen and playground! On this mainly level block, there's absolutely loads of room play cricket, footy or try your hand at croquet!

Infrastructure wise, there's a huge oversized garage currently converted into a workshop and a studio with glass sliding doors, music room and basic bathroom. The original roller door is also available if you want to change it back and use for car accommodation. In front of the garage is a double carport and there's plenty of areas to park your caravan and trailers. There's also a garden shed for further storage.

There's 1 small and 4 large water tanks capturing the rain of the large roof capacity of both the house and the garage plus a small tank for the irrigation. The community bore is plumbed to a switch valve, a separate water pump on the studio and septic system.

Opportunities to buy in this lovely estate are few and far between so don't delay and come and look through this weekend.
