    Charming mid-century home, updated for comfort and efficiency, in a superb, central location!

    This generously proportioned Jennings home is set amidst stunning gardens, in a peaceful loop street, just steps from a neighbourhood oval.

    The spreading branches of a magnificent crab apple tree shelter the spring gardens, bright with clumps of Dutch Iris and native mint bushes.

    The graceful mid-century home, offering separate living areas, was comprehensively and tastefully updated some years ago, with a strong focus on energy saving measures.

    Windows and doors are double glazed throughout and there is ducted reverse cycle air conditioning.

    An updated, solid timber front door, featuring beautiful leadlight side panels which are triple glazed, opens to reveal a wide entry and the immaculately presented home.

    The spacious and elegant formal lounge/dining room is furnished with custom drapes and quality carpet, which extends through hallway and bedrooms.

    Large windows frame a picturesque, private outlook over the garden. In the dining room, a sliding door opens onto a covered timber entertaining deck, a great spot to relax with friends and family, immersed in the lovely gardens.

    With a view over the arching branches of the rear garden, the light filled casual living area includes a European laundry, meals and the renovated kitchen. This offers ample bench space with breakfast bar, a Bosch oven and glass cooktop, an Asko dishwasher and walk-in pantry.

    Honeycomb blinds furnish windows and the sliding door, opening to the rear garden.

    The master and second bedroom are equally oversized and offer built-in robes, all three furnished with quality drapes and enjoying a private outlook.

    Renovated to a high standard, the bathroom offers in-slab heating, full tiling, the luxury of a spa bath, a shower, vanity with timber doors, and a separate new w/c.

    Automatic gates and auto roller doors to the double garage make parking a breeze.

    The gardens are a work of art and reflect maturity of more than fifty years. Lawns are bordered by luxuriant but hardy plantings all around the home and the rear garden is safely enclosed. Camellias add to the lushness, with roses in summer and there is a fruitful lime, bay tree, strawberries and veggie beds.

    It would be hard to imagine a more convenient location, just a short walk to Southlands Mawson, Torrens or Pearce shops! Only metres to the oval and Torrens primary, while Melrose high school and Marist College are a short walk.

    Nature trails on the slopes of Mt. Taylor, and all the facilities of Woden town centre are just a short distance.
