view for miles

118 Kingsford Smith Drive is truly a special house that promises unrivalled family living.

Offering privacy and tranquillity and sweeping views from Black Mountain, Belconnen Town Centre, and the Brindabella Mountains, it's easy to understand why this location is highly sort after. Only moments from local shops, quality schools, Mt Rogers and the Belconnen Town Centre, convenience and practicality are also on offer.

Architecturally designed by John Playoust this property showcases a little bit of history. Built with sand stock bricks recycled from the old Goulburn jail, the character and charm is immediately apparent. It is one of many Playoust homes on the street and has stood the test of time with changing family needs.

This has been Barry and Margaret's home for 44 years. Together they have crafted a place that communicates a lifestyle they love and reflects family and happiness.
Here they have raised three children and have fond memories of the many friends and family who would regularly visit as their door was always open .

Barry and Margaret have never taken for granted the uninterrupted views, spectacular sunsets and thunderstorm light shows they've enjoyed over the years – these are some of the things they will miss most about living here.

Having somewhere to go is home. Having someone to love is family. And having both is a blessing. Bring your family home to this truly special place.
