There’s not much this Wagga Wagga property doesn’t offer.

Located in Lake Albert, this stunning luxury home at 15 Laurel Road is truly a standout.

According to PRD sales agent John Bittar, this is a unique offering and he said while the price point of $2.6m to $2.8m wasn’t for everyone, there had been good interest so far in the listing.

“The whole property has been cleverly designed and a lot of thought has gone into it to create something that is special for Wagga Wagga,” said John.

“There’s nothing like it that I’m aware of in Wagga and I’ve looked at a lot of properties and sold a lot of properties in the past 20 years.”

Situated on five acres in a quiet cul-de-sac, it features five bedrooms, an inground pool with spa, a wine cellar, a four-car underground garage and well established trees and gardens.

There is also a beautiful two-bedroom guesthouse with its own entertainment area.

“Part of the clever design here is that you can’t see the guest home from the main house. In fact, from either home you don’t know the other one is there,” said John.

“It is a unique property and has certainly been a labour of love for the vendor. It just offers so much privacy and security and it’s just so peaceful.

“You wouldn’t know you’ve got neighbours; it’s on five acres and there’s five acres next door and five acres on the other side.”

The main home features all the things you’d expect from a quality build – a butler’s pantry in the kitchen, plenty of bench and storage space and a grand scale walk-in wardrobe in the upstairs parents’ retreat – which also has its own private balcony.

Did we mention there’s a small driving range for the golf enthusiast? Perfect for a bit of practice before heading out for a round at the Wagga Wagga Country Club.

John says the grounds and surrounds are the real highlights here.

“The house does speak for itself, but the grounds … when you are standing in there you would think you are a hundred kilometres from town when you are only five minutes from Kooringal Mall and 10 minutes from the CBD.

“The owner has had the block for a long time, and he had the foresight to plant some nice mature pine trees right around the boundary.

“The house isn’t for everyone and obviously the price point isn’t for everyone either, I’m aware of that, and so is the vendor, but it really offers a location that is out of this world – at the end of a cul-de-sac. It’s nice and quiet and when you come through the gate and get into the grounds you feel as though you could be anywhere.”

Bird's-eye view of the property

You won’t hear your neighbours on this comfortable five-acre block.

The property was completed around five months ago, with the owner living in the guesthouse during construction. This means the main residence is a brand-new proposition and has not been lived in.

“The number of online views it has received has been very encouraging,” said John.

“I expected that. I have had a handful of inspections so far and I expected that too.

“It’s a property that I do have some good interest in even at the price.

“It is at a certain price point – but not that many years ago there wasn’t a million-dollar property sold in Wagga, well that’s now become the norm and now there’s your two millions.

“When you get up into that price bracket now it certainly does reduce the level of buyers that are qualified at that price but hopefully we’ll be able to get a good result for the owner in the not-too-distant future.

“It’s a nice, exciting listing that I have really enjoyed marketing.”
