This charming three bedroom, light-filled, solar passive home offers a delightful semi-rural, sustainable lifestyle opportunity in a village community.
Located in a quiet cul-de-sac in picturesque Uriarra Village, complete with mountain and valley views, this large 2007m2 block offers all the benefits of semi-rural living, with city life just a 20 minute (approx.) drive away.
Offering high ceilings and a light-filled open-plan layout, the living and dining areas integrate smoothly into the spacious kitchen where the generous island bench space and breakfast bar invites family gatherings and coffee with friends. There's plenty of room for food preparation and homework here, then it's just a step outside to the large covered deck to entertain or enjoy the view and serenity while eating your meal.
The bedrooms are all comfortably sized and have built-in mirrored wardrobes, with access to the covered deck from the master bedroom. The modern bathroom features a deep bath and heated towel rail and there's a second toilet. Additional year-round comfort is ensured thanks to ceiling fans, honeycomb blinds, cork floors, solar passive design and the 5.2kW solar electricity system.
Outside vegetable and garden beds, fruit trees and stone retaining walls, outline the 2007m2 block. There's plenty of room here for children to run and pets to play, with a tree house, rainwater tank and garden shed included.
Beyond the house, Uriarra Village offers more of the benefits of community living with a swimming pool, children's playground, oval, tennis court.
The village sits at the foothills to the Australian Alps. To the south there are views to Mount Ginini, Mount Franklin and the highest mountain in the ACT, Bimberi Peak. To the north the village faces grasslands leading towards the Molonglo River. Uriarra Village lies on the boundary between remnant Yellow box/Red gum grassy woodland and protected Yellow Box trees are still enjoyed within the village.
If you appreciate all the benefits of a rural home, but don't want to give up on your city comforts - this may be the home and community for you. Well worth inspecting!
