Shingle Hill Estate is set on 45 acres of undulating arable land with abundant water storage within an easy 15 minute drive from the northern suburbs of Canberra.
The property is located 2.3km west of the Federal Highway on Shingle Hill Way and travel to Canberra and Sydney is via a dual carriage Highway. The closest village is Sutton, only 12kms away with Gundaroo 15kms away and Bungendore a 21km drive.
The four bedroom homestead is of contemporary design that includes the latest solar passive features. The house, with 10ft ceilings, is north facing with large double glazed windows and Mount Gambier limestone block masonry. Open fire places add charm to the main entertainment areas.
There are several entertainment areas and large open living areas with views over the land and water storages. A 10kW solar system is mounted on the north facing roof on a 30 degree angle and produces power that exceeds domestic requirements.
Wide verandas shield the home on the east, west & south walls while a full length pergola allows summer leaf growth on the wisteria to provide protection from the summer sun. The 145sqm of covered veranda added to the 385sqm of house roof area provides a large and effective catchment for the 26,000 gallon rainwater tank that supplies the main house.
Adjacent to the homestead is a three car garage which includes a 30sqm north facing conservatory. This room could be used as a guest room, children's play area or gym - it is bright and warm and very inviting.
A large 12m x 24.5m shed is located 80m from the main house. The shed has 10m x 5m mezzanine floor for additional storage. The remaining area of the shed (180sqm) is a dedicated workshop area with ample shelving and a heavy duty car hoist. The workshop is ideal for anyone involved in car restoration projects. Located within the shed is a comfortable air conditioned two bedroom studio (110sqm) with adjacent covered car parking space. The studio has a large 35sqm living space with combined shower, toilet and laundry plus a kitchen/dining area. A 9m x 6m machinery shed is located nearby with space for tractors and other farm machinery.
