Dress-circle Location with Views

From its elevated vantage point, this enormous residence captures views across to Black Mountain and Belconnen. Located in one of Belconnen's tightly-held locations and positioned high in the dress circle of Melba, this original residence sits on a large parcel of land of approximately 1716 sqms and offers limitless scope to update and capitalize in its superb setting.

Offering privacy and tranquillity, the home boasts Mt Rogers Reserve at its rear with beautiful sunset views from the lavish living rooms. Manicured gardens lead you to a spacious foyer opening to an enormous dining room with a seating capacity of 18 people while on the right showcases an opulent large living room complete with an open fireplace and a wet bar. The updated ash timber kitchen with an island bench overlooks the family/casual dining area with views across to the beautiful garden and the outdoor entertaining area where many summer months have been spent with family and friends relaxing by the large glistening pool whilst enjoying the aroma of the barbecue.

All four bedrooms capture mountain and Belconnen views to the front, with the master bedroom boasting an ensuite and a large walk-in-robe. The rumpus room with separate access features also an ensuite, and opens out to a large balcony overlooking the reserve to the rear while capturing mountain views to the front, making it ideal as a teenager's retreat or as a home business. An outstanding opportunity to purchase a spacious home in a tightly-held location with further potential to renovate, or leave as is.
