Property Description

Both the casual and formal living areas have direct access to the outside via sliding glass doors. The sun bathed kitchen benefits from a large pantry, oven tower and gas cooktop.

The remainder of the bedrooms are large and come complete with built in wardrobes. The spacious main bathroom features a bathtub, separate toilet and neutral colour scheme. There’s also a fifth bedroom or formal study depending on the resident’s preference.

Ducted gas heating and evaporative cooling keep residents comfortable year round and a secure double garage with internal access completes the impressive package.

Outside you’ll find a fantastic outdoor entertainment area perfect for entertaining friends. Establishes trees and garden beds adorn the low maintenance grounds.

The Location

Widely regarded as the best suburb in the Gungahlin area, Nicholls makes a compelling case for residents and investors alike.

The residence is set in a quiet, elevated street surrounded by executive homes.  Golf lovers will note that one of the two Nicholls golf courses is only 150 metres away. Within a 500 metre walk you’ll find yourself on the banks of Gungahlin Pond, a favorite amongst locals for an evening stroll. Locals shops are a short 1 minute drive and include a grocery store and specialty shops.

Within Nicholls you’ll find two child care centres and a number of private and public schools including the recently established St John Paul II Catholic College. Canberra University is a fifteen minute drive away.

Gungahlin town centre is just four kilometres away. Two of Canberra’s major employment hubs, the Parliamentary Triangle and Civic are a short eighteen kilometre and fifteen kilometre drive. Learn more about the benefits of investing in Canberra.
