Here's the thing.
If this last year has taught us anything it's that now more than ever our home is our sanctuary. It's a place where we want to feel safe and warm and be able to retreat.
Access to nature and fresh air has become more important. Space to come together with family and friends and places to spend some time to contemplate and relax is on everyone's list of must haves.
This absolutely stunning classic Jennings split level home is the family dream. A street where it's a friendly and supportive community of neighbours who help collect mail, water gardens, bring in bins whilst others are away and chats over the fence are a common occurrence.
There is so much to love about the thoughtful design of this beautifully warm home, with family living woven into every element and provides so many options for places to quietly retreat and places to share. Contemporary yet relaxed with fluid transitions between the multiple and generous indoor and outdoor living spaces, the kitchen is at the heart of the home, connected to living and entertaining spaces ideal for the way we live.
I am absolutely in love with the connection to the outdoors from the stunning sunroom with floor to ceiling windows providing views across Belconnen. From here, you can access the elevated covered deck through glass doors - the perfect spot for your morning coffee while you enjoy the soft sounds of birds coming in, or a glass of wine in the evening while trying to solve the world's problems.
This is a home where you can live and play, a place to make memories.
Let's talk about lifestyle for a minute. The location is nothing but spectacular!
At the end of the street a network of wide open paths connect you with local schools, playgrounds, and the foothills of Mt Rodgers is a short ten minute walk - Here you can experience a fabulous 2km hike where you will experience 360 degree views of Canberra at the top, see snow on the Brindabellas and even catch a glimpse of the top of your new home!
As the sign that greets you upon arrival to this home suggests 'Bemvindo Seja, Quem Vier Por Bem' or translated 'Welcome all who come with good intentions' If your intention is to find a home that's a sanctuary, where location is king, and where lifestyle is choice - Welcome to 124 Kingsford Smith Drive Melba.
