Brilliant Composition - Expressive Accomplishment
This is a property of exciting highlights and accentuated charm.
Superbly equipped with a dazzling array of energetic lifestyle and entertaining features, this is your next home!
Barley Place is a comfortable street that's flanked with quality homes, politely established gardens and views. Located in Merryville Estate just 29 minutes from Canberra's north, it's a stone's throw from the estate's tennis court and largest residents' open recreation area where you can run the kids and pooch at the same time. This is fine country living.
The inferred accomplishment of this outstanding property-package can't be denied.
Firstly, the 269m2 4 bedroom home was designed to provide a larger family with the perfect spatial balance between open plan recreation areas and segregated living.
The home's lifestyle nexus is its central kitchen/family/meals and rumpus area that leads out to the paved alfresco space and elevated entertaining areas. This huge gathering zone allows the largest of families to be semi-nomadic, or group-focused on dinner, TV or just a team de-brief of the day's events. It's a relaxed multi-purpose space that's design-accentuated by its 2.74m high ceilings, floating timber floors and ebbing natural light from the large bay window.
But, if you need an element of separation for those formal moments, there's a segregated lounge room with its own built-in solid fuel combustion heater and adjoining dining room with direct servery access from the kitchen.
Following the home's infused country theme, the kitchen is finished with routed rural-style cabinetry, mellow stone bench tops and a large walk-in pantry.
All 4 bedrooms are well-sized with robes, and the large 38m2 master suite has bay window views over the front gardens, walk-in robe and ensuite with corner bath.
Now it's party time at number 4 Barley Place!
From the back of the home you tier-up to a sensational 10m x 4m azure blue fully landscaped salt water swimming pool and 140m2 entertainment shed.
This unique entertainment building is superbly designed and houses a WC/bathroom, light meal preparation area, spare room and 50m2 open plan games area with raked ceilings and solid fuel combustion heater. Scoped with a la Queensland warm nights in mind, the entire front section of this room unfolds via stacker doors onto a 35m2 covered timber deck with views over the pool and countryside; simply super amazing!
Also, if you like to be entertained by vehicles there's undercover parking for no less than 7 cars, or 6 cars and a caravan combo. Along with the home's double garage there's a great garage shed set-up with an attached caravan/boat trailer annex with a 2.8m clearance factor.
The property's elevated 1.69ac block is enveloped by well-established evergreen boundary trees that provide particular micro-climatic conditions and privacy. The structured gardens are a textured mix of planned garden beds, mature ornamental and fruit production trees and lawns. Yes, there's even a fire pit to sit by and gaze up at the milky canopy of stars at night.
Essentially this is an astounding, fulfilling and multi-dimensional property; it's an uplifting experience.
