    Light Filled Open Plan Living

    This attractive family home has a light and welcoming ambience, enhanced by the rich, solid wooden floors, vaulted ceilings, expansive windows and a fresh and neutral colour palette. Set back on a large block of approximately 836 m2, of fantastic Inner North land, along a quiet leafy street, the well presented home also offers special extra’s in the gated back garden.

    One of the numerous delightful features of the free-flowing home is the size and placement of the many large windows. In the generous open-plan lounge room which overlooks the broad timber deck and front garden, the floor-to-ceiling windows extend around the two external walls – bringing in the sunlight and views of the private garden and treed street. When the sun streams through the windows into the dining room and kitchen, it creates a heart-warming cosiness that shouldn’t be missed.

    The updated kitchen is light and bright and includes multiple cupboards up to the ceiling, a free standing oven, Bosch induction hotplate, plenty of bench space and a lovely, calming outlook to the private and protected back garden.

    Built in robes are included in the two double sized bedrooms, which look out onto the front garden, while the third has views out to the expansive rear yard and enjoys the winter sun.

    The bathroom offers a separate bath and shower, with a large built-in mirrored shaving cabinet. The dual doors to the WC allows access from both the bathroom and the laundry – a great option when coming in from entertaining in the back garden.

    The brilliant solid Mountain Ash floors throughout the living areas of the residence bring in both warmth and functionality and add to the natural flow and connectedness of the home. Years of carpet covering the original flooring enabled the wood to stay in ‘as new’ condition, which is a great bonus.

    When the roof was recently replaced, fresh insulation was also installed, within the ceiling and walls. Reverse cyle air-conditioning maintains comfort year ’round.

    Ideally set facing to the north, the family friendly and generously sized back garden is easy to lose yourself in! Enclosed, and featuring an attractive stone rock wall, the space also offers a myriad of extras, including a delightful cubby house, sand pit, veggie patch and fruit bearing fig and pear trees. The very special ‘man cave’ will be your get-away place, and is positioned next to the workshop, storage area and garage.

    Being located in well-established Downer, it is a short and pleasant stroll of approximately 600 metres the nearby Light Rail stop, proximity to the Gang Gang café, Dickson shops, café’s and restaurants, parks and playing fields, Southwell park and Yowani Golf club. A number of highly regarded schools are nearby, including the Downer pre-school, Lyneham, Brindabella, Majura and North Ainslie.
