Located in ever popular Melba, this renovated home offers a fabulous opportunity for the larger or extended family, featuring 5 bedrooms, plus large study nook, 3 bathrooms and huge yard and kids cubby house/fort on a spacious 840 sqm, child friendly block.

The house is move-in ready, with a modernised kitchen, spacious downstairs rumpus room, huge 65m2 hardwood timber deck overlooking the low maintenance, child friendly backyard with a huge, beautiful Ash tree engulfing and sheltering the yard and creating a sense of calm and privacy.

There is a single electric door garage that has been partly converted into a part storage/part sleeping area (unapproved) which can easily be reverted back to a full garage. There is also a large shed in the backyard with its own seperate second driveway access which is entered by automatic electric double swing gates.

Alongside the pear and plum tree in the back garden, you will also find a ready built chicken enclosure which has been fox-proofed. This could also be used to secure other animals. The structure could also be slightly modified to convert to a large veggie patch or greenhouse.

The home features a two-storey layout, with upstairs having four bedrooms, ensuite, main bathroom, kitchen, living and dining area, with electric reverse cycle heating/cooling throughout.

The downstairs area could be zoned as either a parents or teenagers retreat with extra large bedroom and walk in robe, spacious living/rumpus area and third bathroom. Heating and cooling is via a split system in this area.

There is NBN internet, and a substantial living space of approximately 227m2 plus the 65m2 deck.

There are three primary schools within the suburb and surrounds, plus a local high school and college. Sporting facilities in Melba include the Melba Tennis club and well-maintained sporting ovals and facilities. A popular walking area is also Mt Rogers which is right at the doorstep of Melba.

There is easy access to major arterial roads and public transport. The local
Melba Shops has an IGA supermarket, restaurant, veterinary clinic, cafe, hairdresser and 7/11 Service station, while still also just a short commute to the Belconnen Town Centre.
