Family home packed with sunshine and potential

Behind the modest facade of this appealing home, are unexpected and delightful surprises.

The first is an elevated cathedral-like sunroom extension to the rear where walls of windows wash the soaring ceiling with northerly light and conjure languid days enjoying the view while kids and pets play in the lovely yard below.

The second surprise is a garage that's attached not to the side, but to the rear of the home, providing a platform for the sunroom extension while preserving the front façade of the house for all-important kerb appeal.

A third surprise is the depth of the block. At 939sqm it offers a blank canvas for further extensions and ideal for anyone looking to store a caravan, truck, trailer or all three.

Other welcome points of difference include a pass-through from the spacious kitchen to the dining room where a suspended bench makes the perfect place for a quick coffee, or a homework space for the kids.

The bedrooms, too, have characterful features that include wall sconces while the master bedroom boasts a fetching built-in wardrobe that has a dedicated makeup station with well-placed power points.

This is a home that's been lovingly held by the same family for many years but it's time for a new family to move in and make their mark.

Set in one of Cook's most coveted streets with direct access to the Mt Painter Reserve opposite, this home also puts you in easy reach of the vibrant Cook shops, the Jamison Centre, Belconnen Town Centre, great schools and the Calvary public and private hospitals.
