Know a family with six (or more) kids? Their dream home awaits in Hawker

Step inside this two-storey Hawker home and you'll find endless possibilities for housing - and entertaining - a crowd.

Close to playgrounds, sporting fields, walking tracks, schools and public transport, this six-bedroom, three-bathroom, ultra-private home is located at 5 Tobermorey Place, Hawker.

With a striking street presence, Ray White Canberra real estate agent Alec Brown describes the proportions of the 20-year-old home as "amazing".

“The owners were really clever regarding the use of space with this home as they’ve ensured that all family members have privacy,” Alec says.


“It’s also got a low-maintenance backyard with an easy-care private entertaining area and plenty of space for family gatherings.”

Alec says the grand entrance of the home, featuring a wooden-framed staircase, defines the idea that the home ‘spears off’ in different directions.

“From the minute you pass the entryway, you’ll see that the property is divided into different sections,” he says.


“Right next to the entrance is the formal lounge room, the first of four different living spaces on offer, which is tucked away at the front of the home.

“The grand staircase has a lovely void in the middle, giving you that sense of space in the two-storey home. There's also a separate study and a sixth bedroom or home office option, with its own powder room too.”

The Hawker home features a sunken formal lounge room with bay window and sunken formal dining room with adjoining wine cellar.


The open-plan family, meals and kitchen area is at the heart of the home.

“The thing that struck me the most in the kitchen is the feature joinery,” Alec says.

“There’s a lot of display space and well-lit areas where the glass shelves and cupboards feel quite homely.

“The owners have been really strategic about the design, making sure the open kitchen space can cater to those that want to cook but still interact with family and friends.”


Alec says all six bedrooms have been well maintained and are generous.

“When the owners met with the architect and designer, the plan was to make the home comfortable for a large number of people, and by having the open living spaces and segregated rooms, they’ve achieved that."

The bedrooms upstairs have been laid out as a three-way arrangement to connect to the bathroom, which includes a separate toilet, separate vanity space, spa bath and shower. Downstairs, is an additional third ensuite, tucked away off the laundry.


Set on a massive 1035sqm block, the grounds feature established gardens with well-maintained hedging.

“It’s got an enormous covered pergola that’s perfect for entertaining, as well as a separate courtyard,” Alec says.

“The gardens are pretty easy care and feature an artificial lawn. There’s also a wonderful veggie garden towards the side that’s concealed.

“Another key element that catches buyers’ eyes is the large, eight-seater spa.”


As well as a well-maintained alfresco, the home features an oversized double garage, reverse cycle air-conditioning, ceiling fans and underfloor heating.

Alec says although Hawker is a beautiful suburb that’s renowned for its large blocks, what makes this home a little more special is its location: next to local shops, schools, cafes and restaurants.

“You’ve got the nature reserve right next to the suburb too, and you’re not too far off from the CBD, which is a bonus," he says.

“There’s just a lot of flexibility with this home, and we’ve seen an interest, not just from larger families but blended families that are looking to upsize for future kids or create a multi-generational living space.”

The home at 5 Tobermorey Place, Hawker, will be auctioned at 5.30pm on Friday 7 October 2022.
