Located in one of Watson's most appealing streets backing reserve, this inviting, mid-century home has been tastefully updated and offers sustainable living, inside and out.

Privately built, to one of the era's classic designs, it features high raked ceilings throughout, with an exposed beam in the cathedral ceiling above the open plan living area.

Native gardens lightly screen the attractive façade, the exterior recently refreshed in a contemporary tone.

The light filled, open plan living area features full length, double glazed, timber framed windows, while fresh white décor enhances the sense of space and light throughout. Striking, Tasmanian Oak solid timber flooring features in the living areas and a cosy slow combustion fireplace is a focal point, generating solid winter warmth and great atmosphere!

The upmarket kitchen showcases a pyrolytic stainless steel oven, an induction cooktop and stainless steel bench, an Ironbark island bench with dishwasher, a pantry and soft close joinery with a bamboo finish.

A full length window in the kitchen is a connection with the garden while a glass door opens onto the north facing rear deck, the perfect place to relax and entertain, enjoying the private view over the reserve to Mt. Majura nearby.

Three spacious bedrooms feature new, quality charcoal carpet in a durable and warm wool/bamboo blend. The master and second bedrooms offer built-in robes, ceiling fans, and a garden outlook, while the updated bathroom has a separate w/c.

All windows and doors are double glazed, there is insulation in the ceiling, walls and underfloor, while pelmets furnish windows in the lounge and bedrooms.

There is a solar hot water system, and an array of eight solar panels, installed under the premium tariff scheme, which transfers to the new owners and runs until 2030.

Gardens are safely enclosed and are an oasis of sustainability! A large veggie garden, chook pen, many varieties of berries and twelve fruit trees offer the freshest produce and summer treats. Cherry, plum, peach, apricot, fig, apple, mulberry, orange, lemon and olive trees are dotted around rear and front gardens, supported by a large rain water tank and a grey water system.

Also a haven for creative pursuits, there is a bright, spacious studio in the garden which has an insulated ceiling and north facing, double glazed sash windows. As well there are four sheds or workshop spaces and a sturdy pergola supporting a mature wisteria, spectacular in the spring.

The prime location is brilliant, just a short walk through parkland to Watson shops, fantastic Majura Primary School and light rail stop. Outside the back gate are wetlands, nature trails on Mt. Majura and the Farmers' Market. Dickson hub is close by, while the bike path network passes through reserves on the trip into the City.
