Set on 20 acres this Summerhill Road home and vineyard is nestled behind a grove of historic pines. From the moment you enter this property via the tree lined driveway, and you pass the hazelnut grove, you will see the opportunity on offer with two separate dwellings including a spacious five bedroom country-style home, double garaging and easy care gardens.
The main residence boasts 500 sqm under the roofline featuring traditional timber-lined walls and ceilings - this is more than just a home - it provides a lifestyle! For the avid chef, a French provincial styled kitchen with a walk in pantry in close proximity to the indoor/outdoor entertainment area. The home has been built and insulated and sited to provide comfort year round. Ducted heating, solar panels provide energy options along with the wood fireplace.
From every angle of the living areas the vineyard can be seen, providing the country serenity and beauty of the area with the hills in the distance. The home has five large bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a sixth room which can be used as a multipurpose bedroom or home office. A fireplace commands attention in the light-filled main living room and a sunroom/playroom captures the morning sun. The home has Italian tiles throughout and features a large family bathroom with a bathtub to relax in at the end of the day, not to mention and outdoor spa for relaxing while overlooking the vineyard. The spacious main bedroom features an ensuite and a walk-in robe with double doors opening out onto the entertainment area.
A separate studio includes a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom perfect for visitors, homestay or accommodation for a nanny.
The second building can provide extra income. The villa can be used as a residence or a business providing a versatile floor plan. It can be a licensed restaurant with seating for 55 people or stand up cocktail functions or even an art and craft gallery. It has a fully functioning commercial kitchen and adjoining pizza oven in the enclosed courtyard. The villa features beautiful timber floors, and slow combustion fireplace with views across the surrounding property and the rows of vines. It is currently being used for meetings, birthday parties, weddings and short stay accommodation (Airbnb).
You also get 8 acres of vineyard that was planted 20 years ago and currently produces award-wining wine (Summerhill Road Vineyard). The wine is currently stocked in over 25 local restaurants, bars and bottle shops including Grazing, Aubergine, Realm and Canberra Glassworks.
