Buyers Price Guide: From $1,935,000
One of the greatest advantages of living in Canberra is our close proximity to the breadth of nature on offer around every corner. But at number 35 Rawson Street you don't even have to leave your doorstep to take it all in. Privately placed in a quiet loop street, this 2-storey property boasts 206m2 of living upstairs & backs directly onto Red Hill nature reserve. In addition, it affords wonderful views across to the Brindabellas and Mt. Painter out the front to the West.
Lovingly cared for by just two owners throughout the last 60+ years, this family-oriented home has been transformed to suit the modern buyer. The rear extension is a perfect example, boasting a secluded space for teenagers (or parents) to make their own, offering a bedroom and a large open-plan informal living space fitted with a freestanding gas fireplace for those cold winter evenings.
If you enter through the double garage, you'll discover multiple storage zones which the owners have fleshed out in the under-house quarters to include a secluded library/rumpus, a mudroom, a wine cellar and also an optional 6th bedroom, 30m2 of additional space.
Upstairs is equally (if not more) impressive. The living spaces feature solid hardwood timber floors while the kitchen wows with Tasmanian Blackwood timber cabinetry & updated appliances. A formal lounge & dining zone is placed at the front of the home, taking in the impressive views & the warm sunlight streaming in through full height windows. Just along the hallway, four bedrooms accommodate everyone in the family comfortably & share the fully updated main bathroom with separate toilet.
From the edges of the kerb out front to the leafy canopy of the reserve behind, the grounds have been perfectly maintained & tenderly looked after providing barbecue & outdoor eating areas & a picturesque backdrop to complement the interiors. If you thought you can not buy this kind of peaceful practicality, think again…
