two for one - house and brand new one-bedroom self-contained unit!

Combination of a wonderful home and brand new one bedroom self-contained unit!

Nestled in picture perfect gardens, with established natives that are flourishing within the afternoon sunlight, this delightful home welcomes to a quaint vine draped front porch. It is the perfect secret spot for a morning cuppa, or perhaps an evening vino or two, taking in the comings and goings of the street with cheeky privacy.

This sweet 1960s, three-bedroom family home with a separate brand new large fully self-contained one bedroom unit, is ideally located moments from the local shops and the famous Knox café and offers a wide range of options for those looking for plenty of space and privacy within a thriving community.

The home itself features a large window in the sunny front living area, perfectly framing views of blue skies and the green foliage that envelopes the home. The sunny living space flows to a sweet galley kitchen and meals area. White cabinets meet black countertops in a sleek monochromatic scheme. There is direct flow to an internal laundry, combined walk-in-pantry, and a lovely open servery window straight onto the second living/family area.

Glass sliders open to alfresco dining within the second living/dining/rumpus which is an ideal and robust family arena. This a generous space that captures views of the newly landscaped gardens. The sliders can be flung open to breezes and there is an easy drift to the expansive covered area. Think a long table set for plenty, kids playing on the lawn, throwing a few hoops and endless hours of fun no matter what the weather offers up. This space will cater for the largest of gatherings, whether it be for kids parties, teens hanging out, barbecues or just relaxing with family and friends, you won't be disappointed.

At the opposing end of the home, three peaceful bedrooms centre around a family bathroom with a tub and there is the convenience of a separate toilet. Large windows capture leafy views and built-in-robes take care of storage. The master bedroom, with its wall of built-in-cabinetry is a cheery haven, owing to the vast picture windows that receive a bounty of light and pleasant aspect.

A gated side lane, edged with plantings, ushers to the free-standing new one-bedroom self-contained unit, that floats privately at the end of the generous block. The one-bedroom dwelling, with kitchenette and jack-and-jill ensuite bathroom, is so perfectly screened and invisible from the original home and garden, that you would never guess it was there.

Within it is all intriguing architectural lines, with soaring ceilings and clerestory windows. A modern kitchen is perfectly placed along one wall within the large living and combined dining. A double bedroom, with excellent storage, flows to the ensuite combined laundry, which can also be accessed from the living area. This perfect arrangement is finished in contemporary hues of soft grey, midnight black, crisp white with pops of warm timber.

Watson is a vibrant, inner-north suburb with great community and family vibes, fabulous local shops, plenty of playgrounds and parks and is surrounded by natural reserves. The home is a few steps from Watson shops and local primary schools and a nice stroll down to EPIC and the farmers markets.

Enjoy great coffee, fabulous pizza at The Knox, or dine out at the Filipino eatery, Lola and Lola. It is not far to Dickson shops, host to an array of international cuisines. Majura Nature Reserve is nearby. The home is a short drive or ride from the Braddon precinct, ANU and the CBD. The home is also convenient to a mix of private and public schools, the Australian Catholic University and transport, including the light rail, linking you to the metro city station and the whole of Canberra.
