Just like Mary Poppins this magical property may just fly away out of your reach before you're able to get your hands on it.
Tucked away within a pseudo-cobbled enclave of this increasingly popular & well-located suburb, this charming, 2 storey separate title townhouse has an almost ethereal appeal. From the moment you cast your eyes upon the small, leafy front garden with its cluster of silver birches & thick ground cover your imagination should be captured.
The paved driveway & covered verandah lead on to an invitingly saucy red front door. Upon entering one is drawn like a magnet from the carpeted formal entry & into the atmospheric lounge room – the rich red of the feature wall may be deemed a paradox – it could be either calming or invigorating! The silvery-grey drapes cascading from beneath the pelmet are a striking contrast & also help to frame the stunning outlook onto the front garden. Lush twist pile carpet adds to the allure.
Beyond the living room is the adeptly renovated kitchen & solar oriented dining area. The latter is relatively spacious with sliding doors to the back garden, a beige-coloured feature wall & more elegant window treatments. The former offers ample rolled-top bench space, a 3 door pantry, Antique-white cabinetry, a Euromaid upright electric stove, Stirling dishwasher & stainless steel range hood; timber-like linoleum floors provide the earthy touch. Close by is a large laundry, separate storage area under the stairwell & the 2nd water closet.
A clerestory window provides plenty of natural light to the carpeted, painted brick stairwell. Just off the top landing you will find the attractively revamped bathroom – white wall tiles set off the tan-hued flooring, whilst a separate shower recess, large polyurethane-finished vanity unit, tempting bathtub, Tastic heater/light & 2nd water closet completes the picture. All 3 bedrooms are located on the upper level, each having its own distinctive feel – from the olive-green tones of the sunny main to the double-windowed 3rd set up as a study. All are light & bright & include built-in robes, 2 of which are mirrored.
The back garden space has been made great use of – a paved alfresco area overlooks the gently sloping, lush verdant lawn, in turn hidden from view at the rear by a bank of mature, well-grown privet. There's a quiet reflection corner to enjoy a peaceful moment, along with several raised organic garden beds & a covered barbeque area for sultry weekends. Amongst others, a healthy peach tree & several rose bushes are more evidence of the vendor's green thumbs.
A single carport attached provides internal access & comes with a remote garage door - it could easily & inexpensively be transformed into a secure garage. Electric heating & reverse-cycle air conditioning covers the climate control.
Proximity to the Belconnen town centre, local shops, public transport, schools, universities, parkland & the City make this a desirable location indeed. It could be an ideal property for active retirees, busy professionals, investors or first home buyers.
