Modern Australian home design perfected in Murrumbateman

Announcement posted by Writers Who 14 Sep 2021

Australian home design has been brought to the forefront with the onset of Covid and rural areas are doing it the best thanks to the freedom of space not found in cities, according to agent George Southwell.

“People are seeking that extra space, inside and outside the home, and the entry of 9 Joan Street in Murrumbateman’s Fairley Village epitomises everything people are after for flexible, modern family living,” he said.

“Built in 2017, this home is set on the great Australian dream of a quarter acre block (1019m2) allowing  room for a backyard and a four-bedroom house with open-plan living, a separate study, second lounge or activity room plus a home theatre.”

Vendors Evan and Katie Ekin-Smyth are reluctantly leaving to move interstate to help care for family.

“We built this house and we loved the design for our family of five, as there was plenty of space both inside and out for children,” Katie said.

Murrumbateman was the perfect location for us, being a beautiful small-town community with a wonderful preschool, brand new health hub, and local sports.

“We were only walking distance to all these services, shops and soon-to-be built primary school, but still only 40 minutes to Canberra or 15 minutes to Yass, and we are surrounded by amazing wineries and restaurants.”

The Ekin-Smyths’ Hamptons style home includes a master suite with large walk-in robe and a double vanity in the ensuite, with high ceilings and open-plan design making the house feel spacious.

“We created separate kids’ and adults’ areas in the house for peaceful family living,” Katie said.

“The house is set back on the block to provide a spacious front yard with views to open grassland.

“Our best memories have been our children making friends in the neighbourhood, riding bikes in a quiet town and being a part of this community through our involvement with Little Athletics, the footy club and pre-school.”

With its flexible and modern design, allowing for ease of living especially when work from home has become the norm, 9 Joan Street, Murrumbateman, is one where the hard work has been done and will offer the next family the ultimate Australian lifestyle.
