There’s nothing more precious than time.
Time is always there, inexorably moving forward, represented through change. Marked by the minutes, hours and days, the seasons and years of our life. Time can be measured by things we do, yet we often feel there is not enough time.
It is time to come home and spend time in a home you love. 7 Rattenbury Close is an escape from the city, driving home each day, the rolling landscapes of the surrounding countryside will greet you, the changing colours of the sky inspire calmness. Time to switch off, time to be present.
Offering the ultimate luxury, semi-rural lifestyle this property delivers a meticulously crafted family home with a lifestyle element that cannot be surpassed. The property truly represents resort style living, a staycation inspired executive residence that warmly embraces the holiday at home ethos.
Designed to maximise the peaceful rural backdrop this contemporary country homestead with 467 metres of living, is positioned perfectly to capture breath-taking westerly views as far as the eye can see. Curated by a family for a family there are multiple generous flowing formal and informal living spaces. Soaring cathedral ceilings and premium finishes add high impact visual appeal to the home that is also comfortable and functional.
The outdoor entertaining space is the show-stopper, a stunning visual space featuring a sparkling, self cleaning, solar heated salt water pool with alfresco decking and poolside cabana. This is where time stops! An incredible space all about sharing good times with family and friends
Set on 3 acres in a whisper-quiet cul-de-sac setting the fully landscaped block is outstanding, beautifully executed with a tree lined driveway, fully established house gardens and lush green lawns. A generous vegetable patch and orchard complete the package all carefully finished with handcrafted rock retaining walls and steel-edged garden beds. Vehicles are taken care of by the four car garage complete with gym, and ensuite plus an enormous 16m x 9m Colorbond shed provides further secure vehicle accommodation or storage.
Take a drive and a long deep breath, enjoy luxury country lifestyle within easy commuting distance to Canberra. It’s home time.
