An elegant 10-year-old family home tucked away in one of Murrumbateman’s most popular areas has hit the market, offering village living with all the benefits of the city just a short drive away.

Built with family in mind, this large modern home on a 10-acre block has all the features of country living including a dressage arena, several sheds, five spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, a media room and a separate office.

Country folk themselves, owners Jenny and Ian Hocking built the house wanting to raise their young family in an area with country town benefits, room to explore and the safety of a small community.

Jenny said, “We have raised our family here, celebrating many milestones from birthdays, engagements, weddings and more! We are sad to sell, but we want to be closer to our grandchildren.”

“It’s an amazing place for families of all ages. There are paths to ride bikes into town, the school bus collects your children from the end of the driveway and the village has everything you need close by.

With established trees, immaculate gardens, manicured lawns and a swimming pool this property provides a wonderful opportunity for a relaxing and private country lifestyle, all whilst lending itself to entertaining on summer nights.

Jenny added, “It offers a relaxed lifestyle – living and working from home. You can sit in the office and look over the extensive yard whilst the children… or the grandchildren play!”

The separate office, just 50 metres from the main house, offers the owner the perfect balance between country living and working from home options.

“As we all navigate a global pandemic, this home offers a wonderful opportunity for families wanting to escape city life, yet have the convenience of the CBD only

30 minutes away or the use of the secluded office on the property itself,” agent George Southwell said.

Situated amongst more than 20 boutique wineries and delicious local produce available, Murrumbateman offers the best of both worlds being only 30 kilometres north-west of Canberra and home to just over 3000 people.
