Grand rural Jamberoo residence ‘Warreen’ recently sold for $2.5 million to an undisclosed buyer. 

According to Australian Property Monitors, it sold for $2.5 million in April. 

The home was built a little more than 30 years ago by the previous owners. 

Designed to exploit the position, aspect and views, the sandstock home was designed by Ronald A Gilling and includes features such as an antique cedar front door, softly hued interior, cedar French doors, thematically controlled home heating system, wood combustion fireplace and full-length verandahs.

The property initially had a price guide between $2.9 million and $3.3 million.

Steve Pryor of Raine & Horne Kiama was the listing agent. 

“It sits at the top of Saddleback ridge line and has 180 degrees totally unobstructed coastal and rural views,” co-agent Paul Belleville told the Mercury earlier this year. 

“It would suit someone looking for a rural scenic escape or a buyer who’s into cattle or horses.”

The property also has self-contained separate guest accommodation over a triple car garage.

On the farm there are open paddocks, five-hole golf course greens, cattle yards and machinery shed. 

It’s one of several notable sales in Jamberoo in recent times. 

A piece of Jamberoo history sold in March. 

In February 2016, a luxury home, converted from part of the historic Jamberoo Milk Factory, sold for $1.48 million. 

Its sister property was later listed on the market. 

The property at 31 Factory Lane, Jamberoo was listed for sale earlier this year for $2,180,000.
