Split-level Palmerston home offers an entirely separate wing for the kids

If you’re after space and simplicity in a peaceful location, put this north Canberra property on your must-see list.

Beautifully positioned at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac is the fully-enclosed, three bedroom, two bathroom home at 8 Arid Place, Palmerston.

Ray White Canberra real estate agent Troy Reddick says the home - located on a 769sqm block - has everything a professional couple or young family could want.


“If you're looking for separate living areas, ensuite bathrooms, outdoor entertaining, a big block for kids and pets, and something that doesn’t need work done to it, this home has all of that,” Troy says.

“Often we’ll see good homes, but they might be missing something - or it’s on a busy road, or there’s no entertaining area, but this home ticks all the boxes.

“It’s also set in a nice, quiet area with no traffic, which is a bonus.”


The newly-renovated home is flooded with light and infused with neutral and modern tones.

“It’s got a wonderful northerly aspect and a lot of glass windows to take advantage of that," Troy says.

"So you get a lot of natural light coming through all the living areas.

“The quality of the finishes in the bathrooms is also a highlight.”


With a split-level design, the home has two separate living areas, a formal and informal space, so the kids and parents can have their own spaces.

The kitchen offers access to the alfresco area and features a gas cooktop, a double drawer dishwasher and ample cupboard space.

“The blend of pastel colours complement the neutral tones of the home nicely too," Troy says.


The property's bedrooms are all generous and can fit a queen-sized bed. The master bedroom features a walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom, while the other two bedrooms have built-in mirrored robes.

“When it comes to the bathrooms, the combination of high-quality finishes and neutral tones also stand out," Troy says.


But the ‘wow factor’ is outside: the newly-installed Merbau timber deck.

“The timber is beautiful. It’s the first thing that catches your eye as you step outside into the alfresco area," Troy says.

"The family room flows onto the fully covered timber deck, and it’s just perfect for family gatherings and barbecues.

“The kids have the space and opportunity to play in the backyard and run around, or even have pets, while the parents can have their own zone.”


The home has ducted heating and cooling, plus a 3.5-star energy rating which ensures all-year-round comfort. It also features a double garage, Colorbond fencing, well-maintained landscaping and established fruit trees.

“I think what draws young families the most about this property is the proximity to Palmerston Primary School,” Troy says.

“Gungahlin Town Centre is also only a five-minute drive away, offering a variety of stores and eateries.

“There’s so much to like about this property, and we’ve seen a lot of interest in it so far.”


Number 8 Arid Place, Palmerston, goes to auction at 11am on Saturday 24 September 2022.
