22 Ruthven Street
Tuggeranong treasure troveNo need to be tentative with this tantalising property, situated in one of this popular suburb's more sought-after streets. Freshly painted throughout, with new carpet & vinyl, the deft design & superb room proportions of this renovated home ensure it will attract keen buyer interest.
A wide gently sloping frontage, with low plantings enables the residence to make a bold statement, showing off the recent roof restoration in all its charcoal-hued glory. See-through mesh awnings allow both privacy & protection from the setting sun, & the sheltering portico is just large enough for an outdoor furniture setting. Fresh mulch means no lawn mowing is necessary, & rock retaining walls lend interest. Ample off-street parking is always a boon.
Inside, ornate cornices & ceiling roses give it a timeless elegance, eclectically contrasting the contemporary palette & its many stylish improvements. A spacious lounge room is reminiscent of more vintage properties, its expansive wall space providing an excellent platform for both artwork & furniture. Double, frosted glass bi-fold doors separate this fine room from the adjacent formal dining room, which could readily seat 8 people.
The sparkling white kitchen should please most budding chefs. Stone bench tops are complemented by plentiful overhead cabinetry, brand-name appliances including an LG dishwasher, deep stainless-steel double sinks, pantry, appliance cabinet, some soft-close drawers, & smart splashback tiling. Morning sunlight & delightful views of the surrounding hills & bushland enhance it even more. The adjoining casual living zone is invitingly roomy & offers the same dynamic outlook & orientation. Updated sliding doors with security screens flow onto a large, covered timber deck - ideal for alfresco entertaining or intimate tête-à-têtes with the significant other.
A short, carpeted hallway houses a deep linen cupboard & is the access point for all 3 double bedrooms, laundry, revamped bathroom & separate WC. The main bedroom, much larger than average, should appeal to most. Substantial built-in robes in two completes the picture.
Additional benefits include ducted reverse-cycle air conditioning, a tastic heater light to the bathroom, & new internal doors.
Car enthusiasts or hobbyists should delight in the gable-roofed, lock-up metal garage & exceptionally high & wide carport with roller door. Power & natural light to the garage are pleasing extras. There's a dedicated parking space for a trailer or small boat in the backyard, the latter suiting people seeking a more compact rear garden. An original Hills Hoist bestows an Aussie flavour, & eucalyptus green colourbond fencing equals minimal maintenance.
They named Gowrie the suburb after the 1st Earl of Gowrie, Governor-General of Australia from 1936 to 1944.
