Sustainable & solar passive in the heart of Chapman

Price Guide: $1,350,000+

Light filled, north facing tri-level home set on an elevated parcel of land offering sweeping Canberra views. The productive garden and multiple sustainable features, plus an ideal position between Cooleman Ridge and Chapman Primary/shops, make this home a must see.


Upper level // Taking advantage of the northern light and sweeping views, this level encompasses the living area, dining area, meals area and the entertaining balcony. The kitchen has been designed with the home chef in mind - excellent storage/workspace, durable stone bench tops and high quality appliances.

Mid level // The master suite is spacious and benefits from a walk-in wardrobe, high vaulted ceiling and an updated ensuite bathroom. Also on this level is the tiled entry, the central staircase finished in Victorian Ash and the family room with external access making it an ideal study or space for a home based business.

Lower level // Bedrooms two, three and four plus the updated bathroom (with bath) and laundry all enjoy a northern orientation overlooking the garden. There's also direct access to the courtyard and fishpond from this level.

The delightful, organic garden has raised vegetable beds and various fruit and nut trees for you to enjoy your own home grown produce. The garden comes fitted with an irrigation system plus two rainwater tanks. For your green fingers to enjoy, there is also a greenhouse with auto roof vents and a water/misting system.

A sizeable double garage with workshop space, extra height double carport and additional off-street parking complete the picture of this lovely home.


Positioned only moments away from Cooleman Ridge Nature Reserve in a quiet cul-de-sac and enjoying beautiful vistas to the north, this truly is a location that ticks all the boxes. At the end of Howarth Place runs a footpath down to an underpass leading to the very popular Chapman Primary School and Chapman shops featuring an IGA supermarket and the local favourite, Pastries on Perry Café/Bakery.

Widely regarded as Weston Creek's premier suburb, Chapman is a sought-after neighbourhood centrally located for access to the rest of Canberra and known for its well-established large blocks, interesting architecture and strong sense of community. Living in Chapman means having direct access to Cooleman Ridge Nature Reserve, offering breath-taking views to Black Mountain and the Brindabellas. Here you can enjoy bushwalking, mountain biking and an abundance of native wildlife.
