A home sure to fire the imagination, in a great location, just steps to Dickson and light rail!

Ideally situated in one of Downer's most sought after streets and just metres to all the amenities of Dickson, this much loved home of approximately 185 m2 of living awaits fortunate new owners. The potential to add value here is significant!

The home offers three separate living areas, four bedrooms plus two bathrooms, as well as a home office or study, in a premium location. Owned by its original family almost since the time it was built in the 1960's, it has been thoughtfully extended, adding formal living areas, a north facing sunroom and an office.

Neat hedging encloses the front garden and terrace, an inviting sitting area. From the entry, double glass doors open into the spacious formal lounge and dining, featuring a decorative cornice, pelmets and brand new, quality carpet in a neutral contemporary shade.

The carpet extends from the entry through all living areas and bedrooms, so is a substantial contribution to any update. The separate informal living area is equipped with an air conditioner, while the large, north facing kitchen features a new stainless steel dishwasher, electric stove, extensive bench space and a pantry. From the kitchen, the smooth flow of living areas continues to the north facing sunroom, bathed in sunlight over the cooler months through full length windows which overlook the entertaining area, while awnings and an air conditioner add to comfort.

To the right of the entry is the generous master bedroom, featuring wide sash windows which frame a private outlook to camellias, and is equipped with built-in robes, as are the second and third bedrooms. The main bathroom offers a bath and shower, while a second bathroom, together with the fourth bedroom are situated on the opposite side of the home.

Low walls enclose the entertaining area, which features a brick barbeque at its heart, an inviting gathering place for generations of the family, under the shelter of a Claret Ash. From the driveway, paving leads through the entertaining area up to the office, equipped with a w/c, which has handy access from the garden.
Ample car accommodation is provided by a double carport and double garage, which includes a workshop at the rear. Gardens are mature yet, low maintenance.

Location is a primary consideration of course, and this one is unbeatable, in a peaceful street, just a stone's throw from all the buzz of the Dickson precinct and light rail! It is only steps to a neighbourhood park, while many sought after schools are within walking distance, as well as swimming and tennis facilities. The University of Canberra and Catholic University are within easy reach, while the City centre and the Australian National University are a smooth, rapid trip on the light rail!
