Modern magnificence in Melba


This home in Melba has been touted as one of “most exciting properties” to hit the Northside market this year, and it’s not hard to see why.

The property has been completely renovated both inside and out, and Blackshaw Gungahlin principal, Michael Braddon, says “there is literally nothing you need to do, except move straight in”.

He says the home would be the perfect retreat for entertainers, young professionals as well as families, with “everything you could possibly dream of” under the one roof.

“Indulge in the 7.5m solar-heated salt-chlorinated pool while overlooking the fully landscaped rear yard, or retreat to one of two large covered outdoor entertaining spaces,” he says.

“A separate, relaxing and tranquil alfresco area is complete with remote-controlled Vergola roof that features a rain sensor to automatically close in wet weather, and the outdoor haven melds perfectly with the modernised interior thanks to large bi-fold doors that seamlessly integrate indoors and out.”

Luxury features, fittings and fixtures are a staple throughout the home, including in the gourmet kitchen which incorporates Smeg appliances, three-metre island bench and Caesarstone benchtops. The master bedroom is a haven, secluded from the rest of the house and boasting a full-size ensuite with spa.

“Equally as beautiful, the fully renovated main bathroom is centralised to the three remaining bedrooms, which all feature fresh carpet and mirrored built-in robes,” says Braddon.

With too many features to list, the property includes double-glazed windows and doors, under-tile heating, rooftop solar, gas heating and evaporative cooling and an abundance of storage space.

Braddon says the area of Melba is popular – the current owners of 19 Scarlett Street are moving within the suburb – close to schools, parks and walking trails and the Melba shops.

“This is a very rare opportunity,” he says. “Properties of this calibre do not come on the market very often.”
