Brilliant Upgrades - Enormous Scope
It's always a great pleasure seeing examples of the inspirational upgrades that are lavished on some of our slightly earlier local properties.
A lot of these inviting homes provide their owners with an established place to live, plus a sound platform from which to leap into the dreams and aspirations of the future.
Ideally located just 25 minutes from Canberra's northern areas you can enjoy the many benefits of real country living, but still have an easy commute to work.
This very sweet 259m2 3 bedroom home has undergone some revitalising changes over its immediate past that include a smart re-configuration of the internal living areas to achieve some flowing elements of open-plan living, an absolutely to die-for kitchen, new floor coverings and the replacement of textile curtains with mood-compelling white plantation shutters.
Firstly, the home's amazing new kitchen comes with an array of upmarket features capable of eclipsing many of the latest new builds in our area. At its heart there's a huge island bench/breakfast bar with 400mm Calcutta waterfall bench tops where you can pull up a high-backed chair and sip on a coffee from the kitchen's built-in bean-machine. The kitchen's culinary inclusions cover a 900mm SMEG under-bench oven and induction counter cooktop and the Westinghouse double door refrigerator. Yes, it even comes with the proverbial but streamlined kitchen sink.
But, the kitchen is just the nexus of this sensationally unboxed central living area that's been treated to fresh paintwork, Spotted Gum toned floating timber floors and more of those ethereal plantation shutters. This very relax-infused space is ideal no matter if you're on your reflective ownsome, or with a gregarious group of friends and family.
Another room that received a broad application with the upgrade brush is the lounge or sitting room. The home's slow combustion heater has been artistically encased to follow the Cotswoldian cottage theme, and to keep the look and feel of the home harmonious, the floating timber floors were continued from the central living area through this room and up to the freshly tiled entry foyer.
The home's large laundry/mud room certainly didn't miss out on the upgrade treatment and received an application of zesty new cabinetry and modern floor and wall tiles. Along with being good looking, this room also provides day to day country property space utility and lots of storage.
If you need a tad more living space, the current single carport could be converted into another bedroom.
Attached to the back of the home there's a large covered and ultra-private alfresco area where you can uncork with friends after a tough day's touring of our local cellar doors and world class eateries.
Adjacent to the home there's a whopping 20m x 10m farm shed for additional parking, your hobbies or dogs. One of the bays already houses 4 dog runs, but you could easily expand into another bay to double-up the woofer numbers.
The fabulous 4 acre block is ideal for horses and can be divided up into small paddocks and day yards, with space left over for a smaller arena. The existing shed could be turned into stables, but there's room to add a stable block or a day shelter or two further towards the rear of the block.
Essentially, the benchmark new-era upgrades to the home have resulted in a property to be proud of.
Whether you're a single, couple or smaller family group, this upbeat property is for you!
