Found in Casey: the perfect home for summer cocktails by the pool

Built by the current owners for comfort and entertaining, this Casey home is packed with amazing features you won’t want to miss out on.

16 Hyslop Crescent, Casey, features an open-plan design over two floors, ducted reverse-cycle heating and cooling, low-maintenance gardens and much more.

Stone Gungahlin real estate agent Kris Hellier says the home has "a lot going for it".

“So much of what you find here is amazing; I find it really difficult to pick any one thing as my favourite feature,” Kris says.

“There’s a fantastic master retreat upstairs, the living room is split between inside and outside - which is great for the warm days coming up - and there’s a heated pool."


The current owners have particularly loved the pool and alfresco areas of the home.

“Being in the pool area makes you feel like you’re somewhere else. With the heating, we can get the most out of it, using it almost all year round,” one owner says.

“The many memories of birthdays, Christmases, Easter, Australia Days and the neighbours gathering to enjoy a nice day while the kids play in the pool are things we’re excited to take with us, and we hope a new family can create memories as meaningful as ours in this house."


The kitchen is definitely the heart of this home, built to be much bigger than the original plan and placed in the open-plan living area. With access to the outdoor deck, it features stone benchtops, a five-burner gas cooktop, an electric oven and a dishwasher.

With its open-plan design, there is plenty of room around the home, and having the deck act as an extension of the space makes for easy entertaining.

Kris says the home is made for entertaining, with big spaces inside and out that encourage people to come together.


The current owners have also loved the views from the home's deck and the upstairs parents' retreat.

“Living in a city means that you don’t often get the nicest outlook from your home,” one owner says.

“But sitting up in our retreat space, just us, and completely undisturbed while taking in the views is a truly special experience, especially after a long day.”


Surrounding the home are low-maintenance, beautifully established gardens with irrigation to all garden beds. The garden design isn’t an accident: the current owners wanted to be able to enjoy the outdoors and not work their fingers to the bone to keep it in order.

“As a home we built for ourselves, there are going to be so many things we miss. The gardens are something that we’re also super proud of. Every corner of the block has something to enjoy."


The home is in a great location in Casey, with walks, parks and shops close by, as well as only being a short trip to both Belconnen and the city.

Number 16 Hyslop Crescent, Casey, will be auctioned at 11.15am on Saturday 3 December 2022.
