There is easy access to Canberra's CBD and Gungahlin Town Centre via public transport, cycle or main transport routes with a light rail stop only minutes' walk from the front door.

Offering a peaceful retreat from the bustle of city life, this elegant, solidly built residence has an open flexible layout, cleverly designed to maximise light and space without compromising on functionality. Emphasis has been placed on quality and the home is packed with features including expansive multi-purpose living zones and bedrooms. Entry from the full length front timber deck through stylish double glazed doors leads into a huge, light filled formal living/dining area, maintaining continuity with the shady established gardens. A high-quality, slow combustion fireplace with eco-flue is a focal point, with fully ducted gas heating and ducted evaporative cooling providing year-round comfort.

The living area flows effortlessly to the superb, light and airy kitchen, featuring soaring ceilings, stylish pendant lighting, high quality stone benchtops and vast waterfall island bench with breakfast bar. The kitchen is further enhanced by quality cabinetry and first class European appliances, including Bosch induction cooktop and 90 cm oven. The kitchen flows to a casual multi-purpose family living area, that opens up through double sliding doors to the expansive paved entertaining area, overlooking private, established, easy-care gardens.
The generous proportions of the bedrooms set this home apart and all connect to the beautiful gardens. The luxurious, segregated master suite features high ceilings, massive walk-in robe and a sumptuous ensuite with a unique, extra length, deep bath. Both the ensuite and main bathroom offer high quality finishes, floor to ceiling tiles and separate showers with multi-function handheld showers as well as deluxe rainfall shower heads.

Separate to the main house is a brick studio complete with large living/rumpus, kitchenette, bathroom and an additional two rooms, offering multiple opportunities including work from home potential. Sound-proofing and fixed wire date connection further add to the versatility of this space.

This quality home has been constructed with specific attention to sustainability and minimising living costs, including double glazed windows and doors throughout, double brick construction to the extension, wall and ceiling insulation, solar hot water and substantial back-to-grid solar panel fit out. Technological features include antennae and fixed wire data connections to all rooms and surround sound ceiling speakers throughout the house. Storage is a feature of the property with floor to ceiling double linen closets, and an enviable laundry flowing from the kitchen with abundant cupboard and benchtop space.

The garage/workshop plus car accommodation with additional undercover parking is offered with a substantial pitched roof carport, doubling as an entertaining area.

The scale of the floorplan together with flow from both living areas and bedrooms to the outdoor spaces, makes this home the perfect choice for entertaining and relaxed living, while the inner north location ensures accessibility to all Canberra has to offer.

IIn response to some of the Covid-19 restrictions being lifted, Luton Properties can allow up to 10 attendees inside an open home at any one time. As a result of this, the wait time to look through may increase and we ask attendees to be prepared for a slight delay and to factor this into your open home schedule. We would ask that only essential people come with you to open homes to limit large groups.
We will continue to hold Auctions through the online platform AuctionNow as required. The online registrations will be available one week out from the Auction date.
