You will also enjoy the benefit of ducted gas heating throughout the home.

With Sydney Blue Gum hardwood flooring throughout, this versatile floor plan offers an uplifting sense of space and light. The family living spaces feature a modern well-appointed kitchen, with gas cooktop, electric oven and plenty of storage solutions with bespoke joinery and an expansive stone bench top. The spacious adjoining family room, benefiting from the double sided fireplace, and high ceilings enjoys integration to the outside entertaining zone with glass sliding doors.

The master suite, well separated from the other bedrooms has a beautifully renovated ensuite oasis, generous walk-in robe and floor to ceiling, north facing double glass doors for garden access - an appealing parents retreat indeed! The other three bedrooms, all with built-in robes are serviced by a powder room and a grande complete bathroom with double sink vanity and plenty of storage. This is a teenage bathroom dream.

The timber deck off the rear of the house and built-in fish pond is surrounded by mature gardens and recycled Canberra brick pavers, making it the perfect tranquil place to relax and unwind in your own private oasis. The tandem carport, featuring an automatic door has internal access and the house boasts extra storage in a small garage under the terrace and further storage options under the main house.

This instantly impressive four bedroom ensuite residence offers a stylish blend of classically elegant and modern design, providing a visually captivating living environment in the tightly held community of O'Connor.
