Buying a professional cabinet-maker's own home is bound to come with roomfuls of lovingly-designed advantages and that's exactly what you'll discover at this beautiful four-bedroom Kaleen property.
Sited on an oversized corner block that's bordered by established native gardens it also boasts a brand-new timber front deck at the entry that's both attractive and practical. Stepping through the stylish double-entry doors you'll find an enormous open-plan living/kitchen/family room that's been carefully planned and beautifully-crafted, including bamboo timber flooring, a large island bench, Caesarstone surfaces and oodles of storage space thanks to pantry cupboards and drawers. The kitchen's cooking appliances are all Smeg, with a 5-hob stainless-steel gas stovetop and matching rangehood, a waist-level oven and an integrated microwave as well as a dishwasher.
The adjoining family room is not only spacious but also extends further behind the master bedroom to make it perfect for reading, watching television or listening to music. There are also sliding glass doors to access a second brand-new timber deck overlooking the grassy rear yard - a great opportunity to create a dedicated BBQ area and make the most of the warm Summer evenings.
The sleeping accommodation is divided between the master bedroom on the home's south-eastern edge and the three family bedrooms at the other end, including the larger-than-usual second bedroom which was the home's original master suite. Each of the bedrooms has excellent built-in robes while the master also features an ensuite.
The discreet bathroom, laundry and WC have all been completely renovated within the last few months and showcase quality tiling together with the owner's personal cabinet design and colour palette.
The laundry leads directly out to the rear yard - an expansive L-shaped area with level grass playing areas and established shade trees as well as a designated plot in the rear corner that has a metal shed and raised vegetable gardens.
For your vehicles, boats or trailers there's a Colorbond double garage with purpose-built cabinetry and a full concrete apron that can easily accommodate a wide range of additional transport.
The front yard isn't left out of the fun either, featuring a fully-enclosed tiled courtyard that acts as a second play area for your children or an alternate location for casual brunches or al fresco dining.
For heating and cooling there are multiple options. The home has a Clean Air combustion heater and a Daikin reverse-cycle air conditioner in the living room as well as ducted heating and evaporative cooling in the bedrooms. The block-out curtains have been custom-made so that you can control light and ambient temperature with even more precision.
The location is superb too; a corner block on a quiet loop-street that currently faces vacant land slated for use as a retirement village or aged-care home. Ellenborough Street is within easy reach for access to Canberra's inner north and you're also centrally-positioned amongst three primary schools, a high school and the local Kaleen shopping area.
