Unique family home in a sought after location

This wonderful property is nestled on a massive 910m2 block with wide frontage on a quiet and unassuming street in the best kept secret locale of Torrens, being only minutes from Woden or Mawson shopping precincts.

You'll be impressed by the spacious feeling this home emits as you enter into open plan living and dining areas that lead straight out onto an inviting covered deck area with commanding mountaintop views in the Woden valley.

The property features 4 well sized bedrooms, two functional bathrooms, and for those who have extended families or are in their element when entertaining, there are two kitchens! With plenty of sunshine pouring in throughout the year, there's little to do in terms of maintenance as the home has been dutifully cared for by the current owners.

Low maintenance gardens encircle the home front and back, with a fabulous and vast lawn area that will serve as a great outdoor entertaining area heading into summer. 

Situated on such a well placed parcel of land, there is also potential to add further value with a tastefully planned extension or just move straight in or rent the property out whilst you draw up plans to build two new townhouses on the site (subject to planning regulations for RZ 2 zoning).

It all just seems too good to be true, but the dream is within reach and you'll also be only moments from the Southlands Shopping Centre in Mawson, Marist College, Melrose High and Mt Taylor Nature Reserve, making Torrens one of the highest in demand suburbs being so close to Woden with its plentiful employment prospects and revamped transport and commercial hub.
