Magnificent family home in a superb location

Situated in an elevated enclave of this immensely popular northern suburb, abutting expansive well-treed parkland, this cleverly extended, totally renovated residence should tick all the boxes. If you particularly enjoy the outdoor aspects of domestic life, while also desiring a modern flowing interior, then please read on.

Well set back from the tranquil leafy street, the rendered grey finish, gabled roof, elegant balconies & big windows hint at what aesthetic delights may lay beyond the facade. Beautifully laid pavers & timbered steps guide one to the entrance, the fire engine-red portico providing cover from the elements. An awe-inspiring terraced front garden has been landscaped with a great diversity of native flora that should be a magnet to birdlife. There's even a private reflective area with fire pit & a gravelled drive strip on the left boundary with ample space to park a caravan, boat and/or trailer.

Once inside, the recent modifications are both dramatic & alluring. Extended with modern lifestyles in mind, the open plan nature, access to balconied al fresco zones, ample natural light & excellent solar orientation are utterly exemplified. Polished hardwood floors blend seamlessly with lush grey carpet, & square set cornicing in the living areas highlight the contemporary feel. Northern views not only encapsulate the beautiful parkland adjacent, but also residential towers in the Belconnen town centre & NSW hilltops beyond.

The stylish kitchen offers stone bench tops, polyurethane cabinetry, soft close drawers, a substantial island bench, stainless steel splashback, double pantry, broom cupboard, Electrolux gas hot plates & wall oven, as well as an LG dishwasher. Generous spaces have been set aside for both casual & formal dining, large picture windows providing diners with leafy outlooks. Additional joinery in the former is a boon, whilst both grey & aqua-hued feature walls create a point of difference in the latter.

The segregated main bedroom suite is sumptuously spacious, with a trendy bulkhead ceiling, huge walk-in robe & equally large ensuite - it features a double-sink vanity unit, tiles to the ceiling, roomy double shower recess & quality fittings. Along the hallway are the remaining secondary bedrooms, soft carpet, mirrored built-in robes & venetian blinds included within them. Serving this wing, the main bathroom has only recently undergone its own transformation – the free-standing oval tub with ceiling height feature wall must be seen to be believed, & the standard of fittings are testament to the vendor's desire for quality, reminiscent throughout this spectacular home. The rejuvenated laundry with clothes dryer included & Crimsafe security door will not disappoint either.

Venturing downstairs utilising the attractive internal timber stairwell, it's easy to see how flexible this space could be. Currently it comprises a tiled media room with external access, a large foyer with additional storage & a large well-lit workshop; the double garage with remote door & freshly painted concrete floor is accessible via the foyer. Converting some of these zones for home business use is just a matter of lateral thinking.

If you're looking for an entertainer's back garden with something for everyone, this one should make all your dreams come true - verdant lawn bordered by tall hedging plants & rock edging, overlooked by a covered, expansive timber deck characterises one area, 2 brick-paved zones with outdoor lighting beckon al fresco lovers, a vegetable garden with raised beds should delight with their organic produce, & another spot on the well-fenced park boundary makes an excellent children's playground.

Skinner St in Cook should need no introduction - needless to say, the location should appeal to the most discerning of people. Proximity to 2 Universities, private & public schooling, shopping centres, medical & sporting facilities, bushland & parkland, the Belconnen town centre & City with all their respective amenities, ensure this choice position should always be sought after.
