An inspired renovation has created a stunning family home, imbued with soothing natural tones, perfect balance and timeless design choices, including a soft threading of gold. The open plan interior is bright and spacious, drifting effortlessly to alfresco living, expansive green gardens.

This gorgeous four-bedroom two bathroom home, rests on a quiet street close to parkland. It is an easy stroll to several schools and a myriad sporting fields, including Evatt Oval Playground and Evatt Pump Track Bike Precinct. It is a nice amble through tree-lined streets to Herbert's Bar for a drink or two. The thriving Belconnen precinct is close to hand, extending a plethora of eating, shopping and entertaining options.

A long private driveway lined with leafy garden walls, provides plenty of off-street parking and ushers to a gated double garage. Mature hedging and native array privatise and enclose the home, as soft green lawns provide a cooling grace. An elevated porch takes in glimpses of the street, lending sheltered entry via mid-century timber front door with sidelight in amber glass.

We love the sun-graced front living area, that captures the colours and ever-changing moods of the garden, with its drift to open kitchen, dining and family room. Poised in one corner, the brand-new kitchen is all understated luxe, as subtle dove grey cabinetry with brushed brass handles meets warm timber worktops. Quality appliances from Smeg add a splash of midnight black and there is a generously sized farmhouse butler sink set perfectly beneath the large northern window, flooding the space with light.

A casual merge to the sheltered deck provides the perfect indoor-outdoor mix. There is enough space here for the whole family to gather, the table set for plenty beneath the fiesta lights. The adjacent double garage easily doubling as outdoor room with slow combustion fire, and fully insulated/lined walls…the perfect games/hang-out room or teen retreat. Beyond curving garden beds host mature shady trees and there is plenty of soft lawn for the younger kids to tumble, chase and play.

Three peaceful bedrooms, each with leafy aspects and built-in-robes, centre around a bright white family bathroom with striking black accents. There is a relaxing tub and the convenience of a separate toilet. Tucked away at one end of the house, the master suite opens romantically via French doors to deck and garden. A walk-through-robe takes care of storage and there is a nicely appointed ensuite, with fabulous mosaic tiling in moody pearlescent tones.

There is a feeling of expanse - wide tree lined streets, a deep quiet, ample green spaces, walking tracks and ovals - that characterises life in the family friendly suburb of Evatt. The home is close to the local Evatt and Spence shops, a variety of schools and the Belconnen precinct, with its wide-ranging offering of entertainment, shopping and dining options, including the new Fresh Food Markets. Convenient to the AIS, Bruce Stadium, the UC and Lake Ginninderra, the home is a mere 17 minutes to the CBD and the ANU.
