Homestead living without leaving the city

Your friends will be thinking you’ve moved to the country but this property is still within city limits

If there’s anything we’ve learned from the past few years, it’s how to balance connection and seclusion.

This property at 14 Lancewood Drive, Dural in the heart of Sydney’s Hills District offers the best of both worlds. Surrounded by lush bushland, the 2.02ha site includes a gracious four-bedroom home, a classic rectangular pool with purpose-built pool house, as well as two separate outbuildings and lock-up double garage, all set in beautifully maintained gardens.

Indeed, there’s not much reason to leave home, with easy access to a spacious north-facing open plan living area, as well as a generous separate drawing room with bay window. There’s something of the homestead feel about this property, with the ground floor bedrooms all opening onto the wraparound verandas offering ample outdoor living space, as well as providing thermal comfort to the interior spaces. A separate study with French doors onto the veranda will appeal to those who have adopted the hybrid working model.

On the upper floor, it’s the ultimate parents’ retreat with a large corner bedroom leading onto a full ensuite and spacious walk-in robe. The perfect hideaway, the bedrooms also leads onto a separate library which, in turn, leads onto a media room.

Ideal for quiet nights in front of the stone fireplace or for hosting a crowd of family and friends, this property is the getaway you can enjoy without leaving the city.

Australian auction sales warm up week on week as temperatures cool

Tue, Mar 28, 2023 < 1 min

In signs that confidence is returning to the Australian property market, the combined capitals recorded their highest preliminary clearance rates since April last year, CoreLogic reports.

More than 2,290 homes went to market across capital cities last weekend with early data revealing a 71 percent clearance rate. This compares with a revised clearance rate of 64.2 percent last week. It marks the second busiest auction week to date this year.

Melbourne led the way, with 1,122 homes taken to auction. Of the 916 results collected so far, 73.5 percent were successful. It was a similar story in Sydney, with 791 homes to go under the hammer. Preliminary results indicate a clearance rate of 71.5 percent.

The smaller capitals including Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra all experienced higher clearance rates week on week, with Adelaide out in front at 78.6 percent. It was a less spectacular result in Canberra, with a 59 percent clearance rate and in Brisbane at 56 percent.

In Perth, just three of the 13 auctions tallied so far were successful.
