The Kaleen home where everyone feels welcomed

The Kaleen home where everyone feels welcomed

A cul-de-sac in Canberra’s north holds a hidden gem.

Ray White Canberra sales agent Sebastian Gutierrez says 27 Sanford Place, Kaleen, would be a perfect home base amid a busy life of work or school.

“When I got there, it instantly struck me as one of those homes from back in the day where everybody comes and hangs out at someone’s home,” he said.

“This is a home where you can have the Australian dream.”


Sebastian says this five-bedroom family home is set-up for multi-generational living or for a family looking for a larger living space.

“Downstairs is a large rumpus room, and also a self-contained living area with its own ensuite,” he said.

“As you head upstairs, you have a formal lounge, dining room, living room and four bedrooms – including the master bedroom with its walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.”

It also boasts ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling in the upstairs section of the home, double glazed windows at the front of the house, a 9.9 kW solar panel system and electric roller shutters on the three bedrooms that face the front of the home.


While there is plenty to like inside the home, Sebastian says the outside is just as impressive.

“The home has a plenty of greenery, as well,” he said.

“This is a property has easy access to nature.”

The back of the home has front-seat views to ‘The Pines’ Reserve from the timber deck and living area, while the summer sun can also be enjoyed from the two gazebos in the backyard and the escaped from the in-ground swimming pool.

Sebastian says the backyard barbecue is sure to be the source of many a lunch or dinner this summer.

“It ticks the box for families that love to entertain, because it has multiple gazebos, and a pool area together with an outdoor barbecue area,” he said.

“This could definitely become a household where everyone would gather for Australia Day or for Christmas Day lunches.”

Sebastian says this home would also suit large families or families looking to add a few members, given the size of the property.

“It all gives a feeling of resort-style living, where you can just relax,” he added.

“With the pool, the barbecue and the nature all around, it feels like you’re on holiday.”


Sebastian says Kaleen is a Canberra suburb known for having easy access to other areas of the city, while still retaining the quietness of a suburban lifestyle.

“One of the advantages of living in Kaleen is how central it is, since it’s less than five minutes to the Belconnen Town Centre, and only seven minutes drive to the city,” he says.

“The houses in Sanford Place don’t turn over much.

“When you buy a home there, you’re buying into the community, into a secluded part of Kaleen.”

Sebastian says the home is ready for its next owner.

“The overall feel of this property is that it’s ready for someone to turn the key and move in,” he says.

“The current owners have freshly painted everything, the kitchen has been updated and the carpets are relatively new.

“The only thing a prospective buyer would need to do is add their own flair to their new home.”


27 Sanford Place Kaleen will go to auction on Saturday, 3rd February 2024 as part of Ray White's Summer Showcase Event held at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra.
