With five bedrooms and three bathrooms, this spacious property has the clear potential to be a grand family home in a popular leafy suburb on the edge of the Belconnen Town Centre.
Step inside and you'll instantly know this home is exciting. You'll be greeted by an internal green space, with the ground floor containing two generous bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom - making it a perfect separate living quarter for tenants or relatives.
A hidden opportunity on the lower level is to be found behind that mysterious wooden door… where you'll discover the untapped potential of an enormous under-house space, perfect for lots of storage as is, or easily converted to a basement if you desire.
Proceeding up the carpeted stairs, you'll find the property's beating heart. Families will love the layout of the three well-sized further bedrooms (all with built in robes), and the two bathrooms. Themed wood paneling and features add a classic retro aesthetic to this level of the home.
The kitchen has everything you'll need, including a gas cooktop. The large kitchen window, with heightened outlook, floods light into the room. And the bench space provides all the room you'll need to knead dough, prepare hor d'oeuvres, make your own sausages ... whatever it is, you'll have fun with your friends and family doing it.
The kitchen's classic parquetry carries into one of the two large upstairs living areas. The family/dining room and the lounge room both open onto the enormous tiled verandah which enjoys views across the Belconnen treetops.
Cleverly positioned on the block to face north, this home takes full advantage of Canberra's stunning natural light. The large backyard is a blank canvas, just waiting on your bright ideas. For example, if you're a foodie, you might perhaps see the potential for a large kitchen garden with veggies, fruit trees and a chook run (if you're so inclined).
Macquarie is, of course, a sought-after suburb. With grand trees and wide streets, your home in Macquarie will give you a very pleasant and enduring residential experience. Beyond that, you'll find great benefit in your easy access to both the Belconnen Town Centre (and other many local attractions and facilities) - and to the city! Walkable to the highly regarded Macquarie Primary School and Canberra High School, Macquarie shops and Jamison Centre, the popular reinvigorated Belconnen Fresh Food Markets, Big Splash water park and Westfield shopping mall, you'll have everything you need close by your home. Any nature lovers will appreciate The Pinnacle Nature Reserve just a few minutes walk away.
There's a lot to love about this very spacious home - as is, or as you may choose to enhance it.
