All we see is potential, potential, potential. Not often does an opportunity like this present itself. Dreaming of doing the ultimate renovation? Keen to renovate your way & get into an established suburb? Start with a blank canvas & create your own dream home with 141m2 of living, north facing brick home on a flat 780m2 block.

5 Berne Place is situated on a treelined cul-de-sac, nestled behind massive rhododendrons which are a spectacular sight in spring. This home was built in the early 1970's by AV Jennings, quality workmanship that is still obvious to this today. The big windows at the front of the home create light & airy spaces & showcase the northern aspect. The floorplan is similar to many other AV Jennings houses in the area & has been designed with the family in mind. Two separate living area & the classic L shape lounge ensures your family can spread out without living on top of each other.

The kitchen & open plan family room are located at the back of the home & look out onto the back garden. Sliding doors open onto a back deck that is in urgent need of a bit of attention but could potentially be an ideal place to sit on those warm summer days undercover & enjoy the peace & quiet of living in a cul-de-sac. An added delight is the pot belly stove in the family room that adds personality & warmth to a cold Canberra winter.

This family home has four spacious bedrooms & an oversized main bedroom with ensuite. Over the years the owner has replaced some of the carpets in the rooms & admittedly they aren't a close match to each other but pull them up & you have the original pine floorboards that could be stained beautifully or put your own new floorboards down with ease.

The double garage is separate from the house & offers plenty of storage. Adjacent to the garage is an oversized carport designed for the caravan, boat or tradie trailer. Tucked away at the back of the house your security is assured as it can't been seen from the street. There are multiple sheds also on the property offering ample space to store your tools or other favourite land or water toys.

Ginninderra Creek is at the end of the street & is great for a walk, run or ride. The 1.5 km round trip takes about 20mins depending on how long you stop & talk to all the friendly people that live around the area. Extend your walk & follow it to Dunlop Ponds or head up Goodwin Hill for a good workout with an amazing view!

In addition to the creek, you are within walking distance to Umbagong District Park. This park offers an adventure wonderland for the kids & will never be built on due to historical Aboriginal artefacts discovered there. This area also has extensive bike paths that lead to Flynn, Dunlop, Florey & Belconnen.

The Kippax shopping centre is a short 15 min walk from your home. Offering two supermarkets, doctor, physio, pathology & a multitude of restaurants, cafes & take-aways. In addition, there is the Lucky Shot coffee shop (best coffee in Belconnen according to neighbours) & the Kebab shop which has a reputation for amazingly delicious kebabs. There is a library, bank, gym, hairdressers (and barbershop) & beauty salon too. Plans have been approved for Westfield to extend the shopping centre with features such as a cinema, bowling alley & lots more.

Contact your builder & architect today to start the planning process of building or renovating your dream home. This property is looking for new owners to love to it & help it achieve its full potential.
