Arguably one of the best renovations Canberra has seen for many years, this superb property will set your pulses racing from the moment you descend the gently sloped, paved driveway to the front entrance. The terraced front landscaping comprising an eclectic mix of box hedging, lawn, screening shrubs, boulder stepping stones, cycads & Japanese maples are further enhanced by a magnificent Chinese elm holding court not far from the tranquil courtyard entrance.
Upon entering the well-lit formal entry, the use of Oregon beams, lime-washed pine ceilings, cedar feature walls & authentic timber-look porcelain floor tiling sets the scene for the magic that unfolds as you wander transfixed throughout the rest of the home. To the left is the internal access from the naturally-lit, remote door double garage. On the same level, one discovers the incredible main bedroom suite - replete with nursery/lounge zone, clerestory windows, pale grey stucco walls, rich charcoal-hued twist pile carpet & a delightful outlook over the reflective corner to the private front garden beyond. The dressing room space is adjacent to a jaw-droppingly beautiful ensuite characterised by a subway tile feature wall, frameless glass shower screen, stone-topped polyurethane vanity with floating basin, & an ENEO backlit mirror with magnifier, demister & digital clock.
5 open-riser solid timber stair treads lead down to the middle section where you're sure to be captivated by the first living area. Offering vaulted timber ceilings, grey smooth-rendered walls, floor-to-ceiling cedar-framed windows, slow combustion Regency fireplace with painted brick hearth, additional clerestory windows & a picture perfect view of the courtyard section of the rear garden. On the opposite side is a second living space that mirrors the first but with a wall-mounted gas heater & Fujitsu air conditioner. Handy to both is a separate dining space that could easily accommodate 12 persons for formal or casual dining occasions. Adjacent, the large open study could easily be converted to a 5th bedroom if desired.
The amazingly transformed kitchen has the wow factor in spades! 60mm formed concrete benchtops with brushed patina complement black subway tile splashbacks, matching range hood & a commercial-standard, Belling free standing stove with double ovens, separate grill, slow cooker & 7-burner gas hot plates. Contrasting the dark hues, the snow-white polyurethane cabinetry with soft close drawers, integrated Asko dishwasher, & Blackbutt floating shelves complete the aesthetic picture.
The 3rd & lowest level houses the secondary bedrooms, main bathroom & over-size laundry. A wide hallway allows ample room to move & easy access to all rooms. Each of these 3 double-size, well-lit bedrooms offer new plush carpet, substantial built-in robes & freshly painted stucco walls. Serving them is what could arguably be described as the ‘piece de resistance' bathroom – superbly renovated in parallel to the ensuite, with the addition of a stunning, composite stone, free standing oval bathtub.
Last, but not least is the exceptionally private & leafy rear garden – a mixture of pitched & horizontal pergolas, extensive paving & garden artistry combine to create a wonderful space for alfresco occasions. A bank of mature Robina mop top trees, flowering camellias, purple-leafed Japanese maples, positioned boulders & extensive underplanting on raised beds add to the allure, as does the veritable forest of trees & viburnum hedging privately screening the abutting greenbelt.
Situated in one of Palmerston's most sought-after streets, where quality real estate abounds, this is an incredibly rare opportunity to procure a unique property in proximity to the Gungahlin town centre & all its associated amenities.
