With a modern design and only 4 years old, this well presented, single storey DHA investment property is an investment for today and into the future. The property is very well priced given the current market conditions and potential for capital growth over the terms of the leases seems highly likely, given that the median price for houses in Moncrieff is $943,000 – up by 27% over the last 12 months, according to Core Logic data.
Whether you move in, sell the home or re-let on the open market at the end of the DHA leases, you will gain by having a well-maintained property to benefit from, one way or another. Tenants will love the family-friendly design of the suburb and emphasis on plenty of outdoor recreation facilities, dotted throughout the suburb.
North-facing to the front, the house features separate formal and informal living areas with the lounge room opening to a tiled family/meals and kitchen, with access to a covered outdoor entertaining area. With plenty of bench and storage space, the kitchen has a gas cook top, electric wall oven and a lovely outlook over the patio.
The master bedroom, with walk-through wardrobe and large ensuite with walk-in shower, is located separately from the other three bedrooms, all of which have built-in wardrobes. The laundry has storage and direct external access to a drying line.
The property also offers the benefits of ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling, instant gas hot water, additional wall insulation and a water tank. The extra-large double garage has an auto-opening door and back yard access as well as internal access and plenty of room for a workshop.
Close to local amenities, schools, parks and playgrounds. Gungahlin town centre is a short drive away and there is easy access to main transport routes.
With the DHA's guaranteed rent, whether the home is vacant or not, an annual rent review and care of maintenance matters, this is a long term set and forget investment – even a possible addition to your super fund.
