    Tranquility, king parrots & kookaburras – fabulous location backing reserve, close to Watson shops!

    In a peaceful location overlooking reserve on the boundary of old Watson, this well presented, extended Canberra red brick home is situated in a street lined with graceful Chinese Elm trees. It has an ideal north-east aspect to the rear and is well sited on a block of approximately 674 m2.

    Décor is fresh throughout and is a pleasing introduction in the wide entry, which leads into the spacious lounge. Full length windows capture the north-east aspect and views, allowing light and winter sunshine to pour in, while ducted gas heating and a reverse cycle air conditioner maintain comfort, enhanced by underfloor and ceiling insulation. A sliding door opens onto a wide, covered entertaining area, where you can enjoy the outlook and abundant bird life, including king parrots and kookaburras.

    An over-sized dining room opens to the kitchen, which features a new Westinghouse stainless steel oven with grill, updated bench tops and a pantry. The kitchen leads into a bright sun room, perfect for drying clothes.
    Extension has added to the generous size of the master bedroom, equipped with a walk-in robe and ensuite. The adjacent, updated w/c also serves the main bathroom. Bedroom two has a built-in robe, while all three bedrooms are spacious and offer the comfort of reverse cycle air conditioners.

    In the large, level rear garden there is a raised, self-watering veggie bed and a garage.

    The outstanding location offers easy access to the walking and biking trails along the reserve leading up Mt. Majura, and to a nearby park with a playground. It is just a short walk to coffee at Watson shops and to Majura primary, while the new light rail stop will be only a short distance. Saturday Farmers’ Market at Epic is an enjoyable stroll. The friendly neighbourhood has been much enjoyed by all generations of the family who have owned the home since it was built. This inviting and comfortable home presents a rare but fleeting opportunity to enjoy all that this fantastic location has to offer!
