Large garden? Tick.
Lots of natural light? Tick, Tick, Tick.
It’s really hard to fault this idyllic family home at 11 Deane Street that is headed under the hammer this weekend.
The three-bedroom property in Yarralumla is on a corner block and blends spaciousness with the convenience of local shops and schools nearby.
A solid red-brick home on an 863sqm block and with the bonus of a studio out the back, No. 11 Deane Street certainly has a lot to offer for a new family.
“This property has been in the same family for decades and has been a really well-cared for family home,” he said.
"It is now ready for the next family to come and put its own stamp on it."
On the market for the first time in over 30 years, the family home has been clearly well cared for and has lots of character both inside and outside.
Inside, the home in inundated with charming details –a stain glass window, large shutter doors, an impressive fireplace, and draping curtains that cover the windows and floor-to-ceiling glass doors.
From a separate outdoor entrance is a 4.7x3.4m back studio which has the potential to be used as a fourth bedroom, home office or art studio.
Maintained in its original form, the home features high ceilings, carpet and tiled floors, and decorative windows that provide picture-perfect views of the landscaped garden.
From the wide entrance hall is the lounge room and dining room on the left, and a corridor to the kitchen and bedrooms on the right.
The flexible floor plan offers a tidy kitchen in the heart of the home and the living, dining and lounge room seamlessly flow from there.
The dining and lounge room are two living spaces where most time will be spent for family dinners or cosied up on the couch with a tea. The rooms are not only spacious but made that much more perfect by the traditional fireplace and large windows.
There are three bedrooms in the main part of the home, with one larger than the two others and with an ensuite, lending itself to be used as the master.
Back along the hallway is a family bathroom and separate toilet. The home is warmed by ducted gas heating.
The property has two garages - one freestanding car port out the back that can fit two cars, and a single lock-up garage.
Mr Thompson said the interest so far has been from a mixture of families wanting to get into the Yarralumla area.
"This property is not an entrance level property but it's not at the high end either like some of the others in the Yarralumla area," he said.
"People are looking for a decent size block so a lot of interest has come from families."
According to Mr Thompson, the property is in a great location, just moments from the Deakin and Yarralumla shops and about 4km to Civic.
Zango data figures reveal that Yarralumla’s median property price is currently at $1.515 million. This has drastically risen from last year where the median price was at $1.32 million.
No. 11 Deane Street in Yarralumla is headed to auction this Saturday 10 July on site at noon.
