Live & entertain in style!

In a prime, peaceful location overlooking reserve, yet only a short walk to Gungahlin Marketplace, this inviting and character filled townhouse has separate title and offers generously proportioned living and entertaining areas, as well as a study. With contemporary presentation, neutral white décor and new carpet, it is ready for living and entertaining in style!  

Neat hedging and roses shelter a sitting area at the front overlooking the reserve. From the wide entry, double doors lead into a study and the spacious casual living area unfolds, with an impressive chef's kitchen at its hub. This showcases a large area of stone benchtop with breakfast bar and a 900 mm Emilia stainless steel oven and gas cooktop, rangehood and dishwasher. Stainless steel fans, underfloor and ducted gas heating maintain comfort. The laundry and a powder room, both with storage are conveniently situated on this level.

A wall of attractive, timber framed, bi-fold doors open onto a fabulous, north facing entertaining area and garden, sheltered by a high Vogue pergola and hedging, with a feature pond. The easy flow through from casual living onto this inviting outdoor space makes for relaxed entertaining on any scale and an enticing prospect.

On the freshly carpeted second level, the generous lounge opens onto balconies on either side, with a peaceful outlook over reserve. A ceiling fan, ducted evaporative cooling and ducted gas heating maintain comfort. The spacious second and third bedrooms, both with built-in robes are on this level, together with the luxuriously sized main bathroom, featuring a spa bath and a shower.

Full of character, the master bedroom and fourth bedroom, currently converted to a dressing room, occupy the uppermost level. The generous master features a hardwood floating floor and offers a walk-in robe and a roomy ensuite with a skylight, while comfort is ensured with ducted evaporative cooling. Sweeping northerly views over Gungahlin can be enjoyed from the master bedroom and balcony, and over reserve from the fourth.

There is a double garage fitted with an auto, panel lift door and a workshop or storage area.

From this quiet location amongst friendly neighbours, it is just a short walk to the Marketplace, tram, leisure centre, Palmerston shops and primary school, as well as to bars and restaurants.

Offering every modern comfort, contemporary design and presentation, as well as good separation of living areas, with plenty of space for everyone, this home has it all, in a superb location.
