Privately located, with breathtaking views of the soaring mountains of Wadbilliga National Park, this is a truly exceptional retreat.

Situated to make the most of the spectacular views, the elevated 13-acre property features a large entertainer’s deck, including a 10-person, solar and electric heated swim spa, feature lighting and undercover dining area.

A huge open plan, living/dining/kitchen is enhanced by soaring ceilings, a fan-forced log fire and reverse cycle air conditioning. The kitchen is well-designed with oversized benches and expansive walk-in pantry.

The current owner, a landscape gardener, lovingly designed the low maintenance, drought-proof gardens including careful selection of plants to showcase all seasons, pebbled courtyard, stunning granite rock garden, Italian forest and stone terraced herb and vegetable patch.

With 350 square metres of floor space, the home has three/four large bedrooms, the master with luxury en suite, two-person shower and walk-in wardrobe. The third/fourth bedroom is currently configured as a home cinema. The double lock-up garage has internal access to the house, and there's also a 8x8x6m workshop with concrete floor and power, and three-bay shed.

This property is situated three hours from Canberra, 30 minutes to the beach, with the school bus service a short stroll away. There are daily return air services to Sydney and Melbourne from Merimbula. 

The home has an ecologically sustainable design, including 150 kL of fresh rain water gravity fed and plumbed to the house, a solar hot water system, integrated bush fire suppression system, spring fed dam, solar and mains power.
