UV: $485,000 (2019)


As you drive along Kavel Street you will notice the variety of styles of homes; some older, some very new. No. 18 is a standout with its white render, neat and tidy appearance and elevated outlook.

Its location is convenient to the Sacred Heart Primary School, Melrose High and Marist College, all within a kilometre of the home and Torrens Primary School is also within walking distance. Its positioning in the middle of the block allows for a garden to the front and a generously size fenced garden to the rear and side for children to play.

Inside the home the informal living areas are a modern, open plan design. The renovated kitchen has an island bench suitable for the mid-week informal family meals, Miele appliances including a dishwasher, electric oven, ceramic cook top and range hood. A corner pantry is spacious for all your kitchen needs.

A floating timber floor replaces carpet to assist the allergy sufferers in the family and double-glazed windows have been installed throughout apart from the lounge and dining room windows which have heavy duty curtains.

All the bedrooms have built in robes and the main bathroom, also renovated, has a separate toilet.

Leading from the family room, you walk out onto the rear timber deck which overlooks the covered entertaining area and the large back garden which wraps around the side of the home. Plenty of room here for family gatherings in the soon to arrive warm weather.

Car accommodation is provided by a separate metal double garage positioned to the rear of the block and there is an electric roller door to the side of the home allowing easy access to the back garden.

Torrens is a suburb in the Woden Valley and located along the district’s southern edge. It is named after Sir Robert Torrens, a former Premier of South Australia. Streets in the suburb are named after South Australian pioneers. It adjoins the suburbs of Pearce, Mawson and Farrer and is bounded by Beasley Street to the north, Athllon Drive to the east and the Canberra Nature Park to the south. To the west the skyline is dominated by the Mount Taylor nature reserve.

There is very easy driving access from Kavel Street to the Southlands Shopping Centre, the Woden Town Centre and Canberra Hospital.
