A Rare and Exciting Opportunity

Plan for your future with this well-maintained, updated home in a quiet, convenient location close to schools and shops. Occupying a landscaped 1,416m2 (approx.) block, this home offers spacious family living inside and out with the added bonus of redevelopment potential.

The floorplan provides an abundance of room for the family to spread out with a large formal lounge and dining area, a combined family room and kitchen area, and a separate flexible rumpus room/office/media room/sunroom. Accommodation comprises four bedrooms with built-in robes - the large main bedroom with a private ensuite, a fully-tiled family bathroom with bath and shower, and a separate toilet.

Beautifully presented and well maintained, the kitchen, bathroom, ensuite, and laundry were all updated in 2015, so you have absolutely no work to do but move in and start enjoying your new home. Features include a modern stone-topped kitchen with breakfast bar, plenty of storage and stainless-steel appliances, ducted gas heating, plus Daikin inverter reverse cycle air conditioning, large floor-to-ceiling windows to let in the light, broadband, Foxtel, and two 9,000 litre (approx) gravity-fed water tanks for the gardens.

The huge yard has ample room for kids and pets to play, veggie gardens, and space to put in a pool with room to spare. The extra large artificial turf makes it ultra-low-maintenance, so you can spend your Sunday mornings enjoying a long brunch on the concrete terrace or large raised deck instead of mowing the lawn.

There's plenty of parking for family and guests, with a single lock-up garage with remote and internal access, an extra-height carport with drive-through access to the yard and room to fit a van or caravan, plus a gravelled area for off-street parking for additional vehicles.

Tucked well back from the wide road behind established gardens, this home is just moment's walk to busses, Weetangera shops, and playing fields. Only one street to cross to get to Weetangera Primary School and Weetangera Pre-School. Kids can walk to St Matthews Catholic Primary School via underpass without having to cross a single street. Walking distance to Hawker shops and Belconnen High School. Nearby arterial roads provide easy access to Westfield and Belconnen town Centre, Canberra City, and surrounds.

Situated in an RZ2 core area and with a block size of 1,416m2 (approx.), this property offers a range of exciting options. Potential options include:
* enjoy as is,
* build a second dwelling, or redevelop
* knock down the existing home and start over and build 2, or 3, or 4 new dwellings.
The Lease variation fee to permit up to 4 dwellings has already been paid (currently, the lease variation fee is around $40,000 per unit), and new lease has been issued. The current lease permits UP TO 4 dwellings. Government fees and charges rarely ever decrease, so whether you choose to build one, two, three or four units either now or later, the lease variation fee being already paid is a great bonus towards your future options. One of a very small number of undeveloped RZ2 blocks over 1400m2 remaining in Weetangera.

This lovely home offers spacious, comfortable living in a quiet, convenient location with lots of future potential for the buyer with a vision.
