For a seamless and stress-free move, it would be hard to go past this delightful family home since its numerous new features mean there's little you'll have to think about. The list includes flooring, window treatments, gas hot water service, ducted reverse cycle heating and evaporative cooling, repointed roof and upgraded fascias, plus fresh paint throughout.
Add to that an as-new deck, updated kitchen and master retreat extension and it really will be just a matter of moving your belongings in and getting on with family life.

Beyond all of the new features, this home's layout also sensibly locates the sleeping areas away from the hustle and bustle.
In one half of the home, you'll find three generous bedrooms including an extension that houses the master retreat which has its own large study or nursery, access to the rear deck, a walk-in wardrobe and bright ensuite.

In the other half, living spaces comprise a casual family and meals area overlooking the elevated rear deck, as well as a formal lounge and dining area to the front of the home. The kitchen provides the central hub and impresses with its well-considered custom storage, new benchtops and Bosch appliances.

Outside, the flat rear garden boasts mature fruit trees and natives. There's an oversize double garage complete with workbench and lighting, plus off-street parking for a further three cars.

The home's location in a popular street, close to the inviting natural features of the Bicentennial trail, two universities, Aranda Primary School, Radford College, medical and sporting facilities, and office and retail precincts make it an exceptionally inviting choice. A short walk takes you to public transport with only one bus to the city centre and for those who enjoy being part of a community, you'll fit right into this sought after suburb. A stroll down Mackellar Crescent will take you to the popular Cook shops where you can enjoy a coffee at Little Oink, pizza and wine at "To All My Friends", and local produce from The Cook Grocer.
