So many of us have a secret desire to move to the country. The romantic idea of a rural retreat, your own private sanctuary to return to at the end of a busy day.
Pine Ridge is the perfect haven. Positioned beautifully in what is locally known as ‘the valley of peace’, this lifestyle package is complete with tennis court, swimming pool, spectacular gardens and paddock space for a couple of ponies. The block is large enough for privacy yet small enough to be manageable, literally 20 minutes from Canberra, it’s ideally placed to give you the very best of town and country.
The sprawling country home is unpretentious and celebrates the amazing calmness the surrounding landscape provides, with large windows connecting the home with the outdoors from every room. Curated for a family lifestyle there are multiple flowing formal and informal living spaces. The alfresco entertaining adjoined by the pool area is the show-stopper, a relaxed and robust space for family and friends to casually gather. The artisan wood-fired pizza oven overlooks an outstanding established garden block – it’s all about sharing good times with an incredible rural backdrop.
The Sutton Village location adds to the appeal. Laid back country values underpin a vibrant, close-knit community bursting with activity. A gorgeous local primary school, well regarded local bakery, local store and pony club are on offer along with the thriving food and wine scene just down the road at Gundaroo.
Pine Ridge has been our family home base. It has hosted sensational celebrations; family Christmases, tennis matches, a million pizza parties and a beautiful wedding. It is now time for someone else to make this wonderful place their home.
