Village Finesse - The Perfect Package
Murrumbateman village will always be a popular place to live, and when you can get a stylish residential mix such as this, life shifts into the ideal!
Yes, this is a light and joyous home with a big splash of pronounced flair.
Located just 25 minutes from Canberra's north and a stone's throw from the village shops, you simply can't get a better location or comparative value for money. There's absolutely no chance of securing such a well-presented large home on an half acre block in Canberra for this price.
Importantly, you also get the relaxed Murrumbateman village lifestyle too.
The 313m2 home is absolutely lovely and comes pre-packed with 5 bedrooms, a fully upgraded kitchen with vented glass cooktop and soft close drawers, 3 large segregated living areas including a huge lounge room with Lopi wood heater and an upgraded family bathroom.
If you're into formal dining there's also a dining area with high raked ceilings and alfresco access, but this personally interpretive space could be used for a child's play area or a reflective sitting/reading room.
Another fabulous space that can be adapted to many uses is the home's 5th bedroom. Due to its size and proximity to a WC and shower it would be an ideal work-from-home office, artists' studio or just about anything that you can turn your mind to. This is a particularly light, sunny and relaxing room.
But, along with its many family attributes its also an expressive entertainer with a zesty touch of the resort.
Flowing off the home's internal living areas is one of the best covered alfresco's you've ever seen.
Set up so that you get a view over the swimming pool and rear gardens, it's massive 76m2 of area has a feel-mix of the Balinese cabana and Queensland restaurant alfresco.
The rear yards are securely enclosed and are a kaleidoscope of vibrant colours and leafy tactile textures. Having said that, there's more than enough romping family lawns to keep the best budding cricketers happy, or room to add more gardens and fruit trees. This yarded area is very private and bordered with mature native and ornamental trees for shade in our warmer months and has its very own seated fire pit where you can sit and gaze up at the sparkling canopy of Murrumbateman stars at night.
If you're currently existing on a 400m2 Canberra block this sensational half acre lot just isn't a block of land, it's a positive cultural shift.
Essentially, this is an outstanding family property with an enormous array of enjoyable benefits. If you're looking for a home that's been thoughtfully established and lovingly maintained this ultra-special treat is for you.
