Almost too good to be true. A beautiful family home with exceptional gardens, copious storage, all levels of comfort and views.

As soon as you step foot on this property the personality and soul engulf you. With unique gardens at the front and rear providing privacy and retreat, views from the balcony and multiple living areas, this truly is a special home. It hosts four bedrooms, two bathrooms, solar energy option, reverse cycle air conditioning units in bedrooms and living spaces, double glazed windows and a woodfire.

Making your way to the raised front entrance and you cannot help but be enticed by the colourful deciduous foliage and views behind you. Greeting you as you enter are a sun filled plant alcove and a large north-facing kitchen with double oven, electric cooktop and dishwasher.

The open plan living and formal dining area open onto a functional entertainment deck that suits perfectly for the dinner party/family Christmas style occasion. Possibly the most appealing feature of this space is the 'old-school' wood fire, just impeccable for the Canberra winter days accompanied by a glass of nice red wine from one of your multiple potential wine cellars that could be found in this home.

The West wing of the home has two large bedrooms with reverse cycle air conditioning and a large built in robe that could easily be mistaken as a walk in robe. The neatly presented main bathroom is found at this end of the home and has both a bath and shower while the toilet is separate for extra family accommodation.

The East wing also hosts two bedrooms including the master, which has walk-in robe and captures a north-easterly aspect. The ensuite is situated outside of the bedroom and can be classified as a second bathroom providing extra utilisation for the fourth bedroom should that be what one is looking for. The fourth bedroom is of generous size and has built in robes and is situated in the northeast corner of the home.

Downstairs you have the flexibility of a small rumpus or perfect home office space with direct access into the colourful oasis of the front yard and next door to the double garage that also hosts some storage. It is down here that you will also find multiple nooks of under house storage, which could serve perfectly for the earlier mentioned wine cellar and sought after storing of all things necessary.

A Japanese style back garden calls for little maintenance and not only provides plenty of privacy thanks to the well-established foliage it also has several separate areas for seating. It is secure and tasteful while delivering plenty of activities for kids and adventures for pets.

Guaranteed to be a winner with buyers, do not delay your inspection of this home. Get to one of our upcoming Saturday open houses prior to auction day!
