Spacious, renovated home amid private gardens, only a short walk to Lyneham shops and schools!

In the leafy heart of Lyneham where street trees form a shady canopy, extensions and architect designed renovations have created a spacious and stylish home offering generous living areas flowing to entertaining space, four bedrooms, including oversized master and guest bedrooms, both with ensuites, a study, plus garden studio and a double carport.

Richly planted gardens shelter the home and outdoor areas, creating a sunny, peaceful haven with lovely garden views from every room.

The superb location is a short walk to Tilley's, Lyneham primary and high schools, and steps to Lyneham pre-school. It is also just a stroll to bus routes to the City and Belconnen centres, and the light rail!

Striking, spotted gum timber flooring extends through the open plan living areas and hallway, complemented by neutral white décor throughout and pendant LED lighting.

Remodelled as part of the recent renovation, the spacious new kitchen showcases stone and spotted gum benchtops, an induction cooktop, pyrolytic oven, Miele dishwasher and a large amount of storage.
A separate lounge or library offers a quiet retreat.

From the family room a sliding door opens onto private outdoor space overlooking gardens, including raised veggie beds with flourishing greens and an attractively crafted hen house. On the opposite side of the living area, French doors open onto the covered entertaining deck overlooking the paved rear garden, where many family gatherings have been enjoyed.

Sustainability is another outstanding aspect of the home, which includes 21 solar panels, a heat pump powered hydronic heating system, ceiling and under-floor insulation, and double brick walls to most of the home. Ducted evaporative cooling maintains summer comfort.

The generous master bedroom enjoys a private garden outlook and features a walk-in robe and ensuite. Third and fourth bedrooms have built-in robes and are served by the main bathroom, which includes a bath and separate w/c, also accessed from the laundry. At the opposite end of the home beside the entry, the large second bedroom offers a wall of built-in robes, a reverse cycle air conditioner and a disability-friendly, modern ensuite. As-new, quality wool carpet and honeycomb blinds feature in all four bedrooms and study.

The huge amount of storage throughout the home is another advantage.
In the rear garden is an insulated, timber-lined studio with double glazing, and attached shed.

There is a substantial double carport and additional off-street parking for other vehicles.

The peaceful location is not only close to Lyneham shops and schools, hockey, tennis and gym facilities and playing fields, but within easy reach of Dickson shops and College, the ANU, The University of Canberra and the Australian Catholic University.

A distinctive home displaying tasteful finishes and a floor plan which offers flexibility for families, ready for living and entertaining, in an enviable location!
