White painted walls bring a sense of calm and balance, coalescing with the organic colourways of hardwood and slate flooring; the whole home finished beautifully with gorgeous light fittings in timber and raw linens, gently inviting nature inside.
This beautiful four-bedroom, family home rises from an array of mature trees and is graced by a full-length shady veranda. With no opposing neighbours and bushland views, there is a lovely feeling of openness, gifting a nice connection to the laid-back family flavour of the neighbourhood. It is an easy stroll to local schools, Spence Oval and a myriad of walking trails that wend their way through peaceful reserve.
The home has a nourishing quality with its large picture windows, elegant simple spaces and sunny northerly aspect. Freshly refurbished throughout, there is a nice combo of past and present, with contemporary updates alongside well-preserved original timber door handles and joinery.
Warm slate flows smooth underfoot within the welcoming foyer and to one side, a large living, dining area is characterised by honeyed timber floors. A northern picture window captures painterly scenes of the garden and mature ghost gum. There is enough space here for large family gatherings combined with a cosy ambience - the natural materiality and quality of light extending a relaxing serenity that feels in sync with the peaceful locale.
The kitchen with its banks of storage, including full-height pantry is all understated neutral tones, lending a light elegance. With wonderful open sociability to the meals, living space, this bright central hub is ideal for easy family meals, memorable gatherings, spilling garden side on warm summer evenings. A large window above the sink means you can take in the garden breezes and watch the kids at play while you do the washing up.
A hallway leads to four sequestered bedrooms all with leafy views. We love the master bedroom with its ingress of natural light, generous proportions and gorgeous linen and cane lantern light. And the original ensuite with its feature tiling in flourishes of soft greys, and not to forget the full wall of built-in-robes for effortless storage.
The family bathroom is tiled in a bright mix of light and darker greens that evokes the bush surrounds. There is a deep relaxing tub and the saving family grace of a separate toilet. Also notable is the separate and beautifully renovated internal laundry with its stretch of marble countertop and built-in-cabinetry.
A sweet alfresco space bordered by pretty garden beds and centred around a pizza oven is a perfect gathering place within the large, private back yard. Stone garden walls and steps usher to the second tier of this beautifully terraced arena, where spacious soft lawns gift plenty of room for the kids to chase and play.
Situated in the leafy suburb of Spence, known for its family and community values, surrounded by reserve and green spaces, the home, also offers convenient access to the Belconnen precinct, AIS and GIO stadium. The home is close to several fabulous local shops, including Spence and Melba, with Mamé café, in Melba court being a local favorite. Within walking distance to Mt Roger's reserve and convenient to transport, schools, and the UC, the home, is also just 11 minutes to the inner-north, and 18 minutes to the CBD.
