Property Description

A unique opportunity to secure an attractive executive style home in a much sought after Canberra suburb with a short term Defence Housing Australia (DHA) lease.  Whether you’re looking to secure your new home today and move in later or you’re looking for a hassle free investment, this property makes a compelling case.

The Property

This modern and well-designed home has been designed with family living in mind.

Upon entering the home you’re welcomed by a formal lounge room with a double storey void, streaming beautiful natural light into the space. To the rear of the home and adjacent to an inviting outdoor undercover alfresco area is the spacious family room with high feature ceilings. The perfect space for informal meals and family living.

The kitchen, which sits adjacent to the family room has been very well equipped. It features stone bench tops, Smeg appliances, an island bench, ample cupboard space and a large feature window. Keen cooks will not be disappointed.

The master suite is a generous size and features a large walk-in robe and luxurious ensuite bathroom with twin sink vanity. There is also direct access to the alfresco area and yard via glass sliding doors.

Also on the ground floor is a light-filled laundry which benefits from a stone work bench and plenty of storage space. A handy spare toilet with hand basin sits adjacent.

The top floor consists of three additional bedrooms which are well sized and all have built-in wardrobes. The third living space is a great spot to use as a teenagers retreat or TV area and the main bathroom which features a bathtub and separate toilet.

Ducted heating and cooling systems mean everyone stays comfortable even in Canberra’s extreme temperatures.

Secure double garaging for two cars with automatic door opener and internal access completes the picture for this lovely home.
