Buyers Guide: $450,000+
For many reasons this distinctive property should appeal to the average small child, but the main one must be the huge, brick-built, gable-roofed cubby house-style dwelling nestled at the back of the large, leafy garden. Carpeted, it could provide endless hours of fun for those inclined. Not far away is another smaller structure with a Perspex roof & a window into another world. It could easily be converted to a serviceable greenhouse. There's also heaps of level lawn for the kids to play on & it's all enclosed, which is ideal for the family pets as well.
The mustard-yellow, bagged-brick home is also likely to capture adult hearts. Screened from the street by a mixture of relatively high plantings, the front portico is very welcoming & is further enhanced by a slate-floored formal entry, complete with cloak cupboard. Beyond it is a vast, open plan L-shaped living area. If big dinner or family parties are your thing, a table set for a comfortable 20 is not outside the realms of possibility. A north-east orientation, slow combustion heater for a romantic night in, & ducted gas heating should bring a smile to everyone's faces.
Recently renovated, the sparkling white kitchen cabinetry & charcoal-coloured benchtops tip their hats to modernity. A big pantry & meals area nook are added bonuses & a separate laundry with external access is handy.
All 3 bedrooms are spacious with built-in robes. 2 have an easterly outlook across the garden towards a high photinia hedge, ensuring privacy & capturing morning sunlight. Excitingly for any occupant of the 3rd, it has an excellent view of the cubby house. With a fresh sanding & stain, the beautiful hardwood floors throughout could breathe new life into this charismatic residence.
A step back in time characterises the bathroom. Thoughtfully renovated at some stage, the floor-to-ceiling white wall tiles contrast enticingly against the flowered terracotta features & tiled floor. The recycled timber vanity, olde worlde tapware & inviting bathtub are a nice touch.
Clearly, outdoor entertaining has featured in the past; easily accessed via timber & glass sliding doors from the living area, a sturdy hardwood deck beckons, stretching the length of the abode. Bordering it, the actual dwelling, single garage, brick courtyard wall & covered pergola combine to provide both privacy & protection from the elements.
Close proximity to Kippax shopping centre, playing fields, schools, bushland, public transport & Belconnen golf course make this part of north Canberra a very desirable place to live. Don't forget to bring the kids to the open home this weekend. It just could be your own family's Utopia.
