Block size: 701 m² approx.UV: $655,000 (2018)

Charm, comfort, convenience and opportunity!

A canopy of mature trees shelter this attractive, peaceful street, just a short walk from the vibrant hub of Lyneham shops, schools, parks and ovals. Neat gardens add to the appeal of the authentic mid-century home, well positioned on a block of approximately 701 m2, offering the possibility of extension or rebuild, while renting in the meantime.
Designed to capture the north aspect in living areas and master bedroom, the home has been tastefully updated to provide modern comfort, while retaining all the character of the period.
The front porch offers a sunny sitting area while the front door opens to the wide, welcoming entry. The spacious, L-shaped, north facing living and dining room suggests the ambience of earlier times in features such as the charming, timber-framed windows, which allow winter sunlight to pour in, and the cosy slow combustion fireplace, set into wood panelling with a mantlepiece. There is the added comfort of ducted gas heating and an air conditioner in the dining area.
Full of light, the updated kitchen features a garden bay window, stainless steel Fisher and Paykel oven, gas cooktop and dishwasher, glass splashback, good bench space, pantry and many cupboards.
A surprising discovery is a large attic store room, which is accessible from the entry.
The impressively proportioned master bedroom has timber windows on two sides, framing an outlook to trees and garden, and is equipped with a ceiling fan and robe. Bedrooms two and three are also spacious and offer built-in robes. The updated bathroom features a deep spa bath and a shower, while glass bricks flood the room with light and there is a separate w/c and powder room vanity. Rinnai instantaneous hot water is installed.
The covered entertaining area overlooks the rear garden, and together with the space available under the double carport, there is plenty of scope for larger gatherings. Mature camellias and deciduous trees shelter the garden and a row of four raised veggie beds allow for fresh produce.
Enjoy the stroll along this suburb's lovely streets to parks and ovals, Tilley Devine cafe and Lyneham shops, where the supermarket stocks a selection of wines grown in the Canberra region. It is just a short walk to Lyneham primary and high schools, on the bus route and within easy reach of light rail, Dickson centre, the Central Business District, Australian National University, the University of Canberra and many public and private schools.
A comfortable home offering many modern comforts, in an appealing inner north location.
