every bit at home

#soldbycris #soldbymcreynolds $980,000

With its combo of warm brick and wide timber veranda this house looks every bit at home within its tree dotted locale. Beautifully renovated and exuding a welcoming, relaxed spirit, the home packs a sustainable punch, with perfect solar orientation and boosted thermal performance. You will appreciate the 4.5 star energy efficiency rating.

This inviting four-bedroom home rises from lovingly tended gardens and commands elevated views out to treetops, blue sky. The corner block lends 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 and peaceful green woods.

Steps usher to the veranda with sweeping views and enough room for dining among the treetops. To the left of the home a private driveway leads to double garage, and there is gated access to the back garden and home office.

Within the open living and dining space is awash with sunshine with banks of windows that capture those gorgeous treetop vistas. This is a generous space with relaxed white washed walls and well-chosen soft oak tones to the new hybrid flooring.

The adjacent kitchen is all white on white with warm timber joinery, banks of storage and luxe appliances. A large walk-in-pantry ensures there is a place for everything. A handy servery window gives peek-a-boo glimpses through to the dining area and there is a nice flow from the living spaces to the covered deck that is fully screened to keep the insects at bay. This is the place to be on balmy summer days and warm nights, the table set for plenty, relaxing with family and friends…wonderfully private with a feeling of being immersed in nature yet protected from the elements.

The master retreat is ideal for relaxing and recovering from the day with its dual spaces for sleeping and living. Eastern light warms the elegant bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and built-in-robe. Glass doors can be flung open welcoming breezes as you relax within the adjacent living space. Think cosying on the couch with a movie or unwinding with a glass or two, perhaps drifting deck side during the warmer months.

The kids zone features three bedrooms amenable to a renovated family bathroom with tub. The largest of the three bedrooms has twin windows that welcome morning light and frame pink flowering camelias.

A Japanese maple adds to the spectacle of colour as paths lead past beautifully planted garden beds. There is lots of additional private parking off Bowden Place and tucked neatly on one side of the parent's deck is the home office/studio. Picture windows overlook soft lawns, so you can work from home steeped in garden peace.

The home is within walking distance to schools, parks, transport and Ginninderra Creek, BMX Club and Melba Half Acre Wood and surrounded by green space and reserve. Close to the fabulous Melba shops, with local favourite Café Mamé, famous for its delicious pastries and vegan options, the home is also close to the Belconnen precinct, connecting you to a plethora of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Handy to the University of Canberra, AIS, Lake Ginninderra, Bruce Stadium, it is a mere 19 minutes to the CBD.
