Nestled away in a tranquil spot close to the periphery of this ever-popular Woden suburb, the proximity to Oakey Hill's nature park & its abundant bushland is just one of the many mouth-watering features that this outstanding property has to offer.
Completed comparatively recently in 2011 & located on the high side of the cul-de-sac, its imposing, clean-lined & rendered façade gives it great street appeal. Facing due north, the layout provides both form & function, taking advantage of the sun from early morning until late afternoon. However, its primary purpose is to operate as a comfortable, modern family home & in that it excels.
Crossing the threshold, the forethought gone into its design becomes immediately obvious. For someone wishing to operate a segregated home office - the study immediately to the right with external access via sliding doors, should be a good fit. Well apart from the secondary bedrooms upstairs, positioned adjacent to the study, the sumptuous main bedroom suite is very roomy; it offers a generous walk-in robe & a magnificent open ensuite with large shower recess, double-bowled vanity, quality fixtures & secluded privacy area.
To the left of the entry is the access point of the 3.6 metre ceilinged double garage, a short corridor behind leading to the powder room & light/bright laundry with storage. The design's emphasis is on contemporary family living, so the 3 steps up into the living zone finds a vastly spacious combined dining/family room with clever clerestory windows allowing abundant wall space, making it a dream to furnish. Within this area, the state-of-the-art kitchen includes a substantial stone-draped island bench that provides breakfast bar seating for 5. Light-hued cabinetry is complemented by a big walk-in pantry, Baumatic oven with 5-burner gas hot plates, stainless-steel canopy rangehood & Miele dishwasher.
Clerestory windows are also evident in the adjacent media room, with block-out blinds, subtle lighting, lush carpet & double sliding doors - creating the ideal haven to watch a movie, favourite show or sport program.
Mood lighting guides one up the elegantly timbered stairs to yet another spacious informal living area. It has its own solar oriented, covered balcony with views of eucalypt canopies & the leafy landscape beyond. Three double-sized bedrooms branch off this space; all are carpeted, with built-in robes, ceiling fans & Holland blinds. A superb main bathroom serves this upstairs children's retreat – once again, quality has been emphasised with fixtures & fittings - the large, deep bathtub particularly distinctive.
No expense has been spared with the outdoor entertaining area & grounds. An amply sheltered, expansive alfresco area adjoins the kitchen/family room – it is a magnificent outdoor living space – one that friends & family should immediately be drawn to. It overlooks glorious, professionally landscaped grounds where travertine paving & random-cut sandstone retaining walls steal the show. A line of flowering crab apple trees & high pittosporum hedging ensures privacy; & terracing with diverse mass plantings & additional trees lend beauty & interest to the garden. Artificial lawn makes it low maintenance & the kids should love the basketball practice area with moveable hoop. Extras include a 2-zone watering system, 3-phase power, an 11,250-litre water tank, Colorbond fencing & garden shed.
Lyons is an exceptionally sought-after, geographically central Canberra suburb. It is walking distance to the Woden town centre where a new restaurant complex is now under construction. The light rail service is planned as a later stage for this important hub. All the vital amenities required for family life exist close by. In this locale, an outstanding entertainer's home such as this is not to be missed!
