73 Joe Rocks Road Bungendore NSW 2621
Amazing views, country lifestyle and close to city benefits!73 Joe Rocks Road, Bungendore
This immaculate property is located in a wonderful bushland setting on the Lake George escarpment, minutes from Bungendore village and in close proximity to Canberra city and airport. With an established boutique cool climate vineyard producing award winning Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Cabernet Franc, together with an impressive and substantial family home offering spectacular views, this is a rare opportunity.
For anyone who has had a dream to own a vineyard, live in an exclusive getaway, maybe run a B&B, or simply slow down and retire into a magnificent country setting, this property can be whatever your heart desires.
In 1998 a dream was fulfilled when David and Lyn Crossley started their journey at 73 Joe Rocks Road, Bungendore, to create a country lifestyle driven by their passion for wine. Inspired by the unique character and ageing potential of Dr Edgar Riek's Lake George Pinot Noirs from the 1970's and 1980's, the Crossleys chose this place for its strategic blend of climatic, geographic and geological attributes necessary to produce premium cool climate grapes themselves.
Now 18 years later, from their picturesque high-altitude vineyard, they consistently produce a quality range of award winning wines which are served in some of the best restaurants in the country.
The entrance driveway meanders through shining snow gums and park-like grassland towards the sheltered and private 4 bedroom home. Natural stone walls and steps frame the gardens and lead you to the front door. Here you can't help yourself from stopping to take in the magnificent north-eastern views over the Lake George valley to the ranges beyond.
This home is neat as a pin and has spacious living areas inside and out. The front sunroom lounge and dining has full length windows overlooking the northern part of the vineyard and is also surrounded by colourful gardens. Open plan to the kitchen is a second lounge and formal dining area with slow combustion fireplace and timber cathedral ceilings. There are expansive views from the 125sqm tiled and covered deck area, with endless possibilities for use. The home is very energy efficient from extensive renovation upgrades in 2005, including additional roof insulation and high specification double glazed windows and doors, making the living areas and bedrooms comfortable and cosy through the seasons.
There are four bedrooms - the master bedroom is spacious with double walk-in robes and ensuite. The family bathroom has a separate toilet and full-size bath servicing 2 other bedrooms. The laundry has an adjacent utility/drying room, with a separate toilet nearby. There is also a guest wing with bedroom/ensuite, study and large living area with separate entry.
When the double garage and guest suite were added to the home the owners incorporated a 5,500 bottle underground wine cellar. Double hardwood doors open to this professionally purpose-built cellar room, complete with cedar wine racking and timbered wine tasting bar. What a fantastic way to entertain your guests, in this atmospheric and high quality wine cellar!
Other features include back to base alarm, internal warm-air transfer system, instant gas hot water system , gas heating and gas outlets for BBQ, and a large separate storage room.
There is a huge potential for further business opportunity within the existing structure of the residence. If someone has the desire to create a B&B, or just wants more space for a rumpus room, gym, workshop or home business, there is a totally separate extension which has electricity and in slab plumbing and totals an extra 100 sqm under roof.
