It might be a real estate mantra, and though we are not usually known for following traditional real estate cliches it just has to be said – Location is everything!
Rumour has it that bainton.house is the highest residential home in Belconnen and I believe it to be true! The view is not for the faint hearted, nor is the climb to the top of the drive- a small price to pay for what awaits.
Savouring a fantastic elevated location in arguably one of the most sought after streets in Belconnen, the outlook from every angle of this home is breathtaking.
Expansive flowing living areas are complimented with 180 degree views across Belconnen, Black Mountain and the Brindabellas, while your backyard connects directly to Mount Rogers Reserve.
This is a home that speaks of family. It embraces its vintage with timeless appeal – things have lasted because they are so good! Robust in its construction, this home is underpinned by original architectural timber details, distinguished custom joinery throughout, expansive windows, soaring ceilings, feature brick archways and a touch of timber panelling.
Ample living spaces allow for 17 Bainton Crescent to be a long term family home with six spacious bedrooms, and multiple extended living spaces to provide generous family living. Connecting the home’s two pristine storeys – and one of the many focal points – has to be the grand entrance and curved, timber-tread staircase, complete with timber balustrade.
The multi-functional rooms on the ground level are spectacular, offering extra spaces for families to creatively utilise. Here you’ll find the sixth bedroom, additional living space/rumpus room, and the third bathroom is a bonus. Separate access makes for a fantastic option for intergenerational arrangements, or teenage retreat.
