“Mirrabooka” – a Post and Beam home on 5 acres with stunning 360 degree views.

$895,000

We are flexible on viewing times. Call to arrange a mutually convenient day and time to inspect Mirrabooka.

A ten year young, energy efficient post and beam home designed and built on passive solar design principles for year round comfort and to suit the local climate.

Large cypress hardwood posts and oregon beams and rafters create the load bearing frame of the home and are striking features of the spacious open plan interior. External walls and one internal wall are Timbercrete blocks which provide substantial thermal mass and act as a winter “heat bank” and a summer “cool sink”. The ceilings, eaves and verandah are lined with natural pine and the roof and gutters are “Paperbark” Colorbond.

The front of the home faces due north across the circular driveway. Wide (1.2 metre) eaves allow 100% of the mid-winter sun to reach the heat bank brick floor through the full height windows and doors. The floor gives back its heat in the cool of the winter evening. Clerestory windows allow winter sun and light to reach the southern side of the house. In mid-summer the wide eaves prevent sun from entering the house.

Every window and door is double glazed. The double doors at the front and back of the living area have external swinging insect screen doors allowing significant cross ventilation.

“Mirrabooka” is situated near the top of a rise and enjoys panoramic 360 degree views over farmland to the north and other local acreages to the east and west.
To the south a full length veranda (25x2.5m) is one of many perfect spots to enjoy the uninterrupted stunning views to the beautiful Brindabella Mountains in the distance towards Canberra.

An east facing pergola with ornamental vines shades in summer and allows winter sun to the master bedroom and its ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.
The other bedrooms in the house have full width built in robes with sliding mirrored doors.
A separate studio offers comfortable en-suite accommodation and has many potential uses for family members or visitors or as a working/hobby/office space.

You can be in Yass in less than 10 minutes or in Canberra in about 50 minutes. Sydney via the motorway in less than 3 hours.

Five acres (1.9200ha) of undulating grassed land, with a few ancient basalt rock outcrops, some substantial old eucalypts plus extensive, mainly native, plantings and many new and thriving self-seeded eucalypts.

Five acres of land – it’s large enough to have the freedom to “stretch your wings”; to run a few animals; to have a vegetable garden and establish an orchard.
And small enough to be comfortably maintained and still leave time for your job or your retirement as well as your outside interests, sports and hobbies. And to share the beauty of the location with family and friends!
