This gorgeous cottage, rests behind wide lawns, deep garden beds with flowering crepe myrtles and a majestic gum tree. Secluded within a quiet cul-de-sac, surrounded by green spaces including the reserves that hug Ginninderra Creek, the home is whisper close to the bustling Belconnen precinct, yet spoilt by an abundance of bushland peace.
It's little wonder this has been a loving home for Joy and Laurie, with its elegant simplicity, creature comforts and ideal flow to sunny outdoor room and sweet gardens. There is a lovely balance here, as generous sunny social areas invite familial communion and entertaining, while at one end, three neat bedrooms take in peaceful leafy vistas.
Laurie has done a lot of the work himself, lovingly renovating and adding luxurious updates throughout. We love the way Joy and Laurie have kept things serene, choosing a palette of whites and natural tones, from the bush stone colours of the bathroom through to the minimalist, monochromatic kitchen.
Easily the heart of the home, the open kitchen and dining is warmed in one corner by a fireplace, while in the summer months glass doors can be flung open to breezes and the scent of roses growing in the back garden. The dining space is big enough for a large table and overlooks the colours of the front garden, welcoming loads of warming northern light. A comfy lounge room sits adjacent with full height windows framing trees and sunlight dappling the walls.
From the kitchen, it is an easy merge to a wonderful outdoor room, letting you get out in nature while enjoying creature comforts. Sun blinds can be adjusted to veil the elements, allowing just the right amount of light and breeze. This is a generous space for connection with family and friends, the table set with a bounty and the barbecue humming.
Just across the way there has been the addition of a garden studio with glass sliders welcoming eastern light. Fully lined and with heating and cooling and amenable to an outdoor bathroom combined laundry, this is a flexi space, ideal for teen retreat, guest bedroom or home office. One of the kids had a full-size pool table in here, friends coming and going via the side lane access, so the household wasn't disturbed.
There is a huge four car garage with awning and auto roller door and plenty of off-street parking. Laurie says he is gifting all the material needed to put an awning spanning the full length of the home…complimenting the form with its tidy rows of picture windows and neatly pitched terracotta roof.
MacGregor is a peaceful, established suburb, bordered by vast reserve and open pastures. The home is handy to Kippax, famous for its variety of excellent shops and great coffee. Spence and Melba are not far, with Mamé café, in Melba court being a local favorite. The Belconnen precinct is close to hand, extending a plethora of entertainment and eating experiences. The home is also close to schools, the walking trails of Lower Molonglo Nature Reserve, playgrounds, Lake Ginninderra, AIS and the UC. It is a mere 18 minutes to the CBD by car.
