With beautiful thriving gardens on an enviable 1083-square-metre block, the smartly presented home at 1 Merfield Place, Giralang, seems like a haven within suburbia. If you’re looking for space to spread out in a central location with a backdrop to the Brindabella Mountains, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence will surely tick all your boxes.
Selling agent Sebastian Gutierrez of Ray White Canberra says that Giralang’s proximity to town centres such as Belconnen and the Canberra CBD means the suburb is tightly held, with larger established homes turning over much slower than newer properties.
That’s why he believes 1 Merfield Place is a fantastic opportunity that would suit a range of buyers, especially families and entertainers.
“This is the first time the home has come onto the market and is ideal for any growing family, local residents looking to upgrade, or a savvy investor seeking a tasteful addition to their portfolio,” he says. “The overall functional family feel is one of its main advantages. It has a stunning resort-style appeal.”
Given a contemporary makeover with a neutral grey palette, the facade sets the scene for an interior that won’t disappoint. Stepping over the threshold, two bedrooms and the main with an en suite (all with built-in wardrobes) are located to the left, while a large living room – with a charming slow-combustion fireplace – and dining room unfold to the right.
Further down this side of the home, a large living or games room adds to the flexible floor plan, with the fourth bedroom at the end conveniently placed to serve as a study or guest room.
In the centre of the home, overlooking the leafy backyard and deck, is a spacious modern kitchen in black and white.
Gutierrez says the layout is exceptionally large, with more than generous cupboard space.
“The granite bench tops are also helpfully large to prepare meals to the highest level,” he says. “You’re offered a quality Bosch cooktop and oven and an integrated Miele dishwasher.
“The breakfast bar provides extra bench space and is ideal for meals on the go.”
The covered outdoor entertaining area and backyard in-ground pool are perfect lifestyle inclusions for relaxing summer days or hosting parties.
The owners themselves have viewed the property as their own “piece of paradise”.
“Our home will always be in our hearts, and we hope the new owners will feel the same.”
1 Merfield Place, Giralang, is scheduled for auction on-site at 1.30pm on November 25.
