#soldbyrick+tina $1,320,000

Boasting a blue-ribbon position on the high side of the street, in the heights of Lyons, this fabulous 1960s home stands proud, overlooking the Woden Valley and enjoying a superb cul-de-sac location with no-through traffic.

Set well back from the street with an impressive frontage, this well presented character home is framed by a 1262m2 block, that inspires the possibility of extension, renovation, and plenty of scope for future possibilities.

Upon entry, you'll be smitten with the generous proportions and retro details that instantly provide warmth and ambience throughout.
The three bedroom configuration has been thoughtfully designed with separate living areas, and generously proportioned bedrooms serviced by a classic 60s bathroom plus additional toilet and shower room.

This wonderful property has been lovingly maintained and owned by the one family, which is testament to the liveability of the home and outstanding location within easy distance to shops, schools, transport, cafes, and an array of amenities.

In addition to the spectacular position, the home offers double garage with workshop, ducted gas heating, outdoor entertaining with pergola and so much more.
