Close to Canberra city, quality public and private schools and colleges, the Australian National and Catholic Universities and the Dickson restaurant precinct, this 6 year old residence is in the highly sought after, inner north suburb of Hackett. The home boasts a lovely street presence, leafy surrounds and a terrific combination of indoor and outdoor living.
One of an increasing number of rebuilds within this established suburb, this 4 bedroom, 3 living area, 2 bathroom, secure double car accommodation home is a must see. Its location affords easy access to the ACTION bus network, a quick bike ride to the city and a five minute stroll to the recently upgraded Hackett shops.
Built to withstand the extremes of Canberra, all windows are double glazed with a 4000 litre water tank and wide gutters to capture the rain to help keep easy care gardens growing and grey water supplied. Central gas heating has been installed for the cooler months. The house is oriented on the block for the main living areas and master bedroom to capture the north-eastern sun. All exterior walls are insulated. With an energy rating of 5, this home is truly eco-friendly.
From the exposed aggregate driveway, you pass by the first of two outdoor living areas. The northerly aspect makes this private courtyard with a new shade sail accessible all year round for alfresco dining, barbecues and simply relaxing.
As you enter the home, you will find a naturally lit open plan, family and dining room adjacent to an excellent kitchen with gas cooking, a new dishwasher plus great storage and bench space. These rooms all look over a garden of mature and new trees with views over to Mt Majura. Separate to this area is the formal lounge room for those more intimate conversations, or if you prefer, solitude with a good book. Foxtel is also available.
Moving through to the bedrooms, you will find a segregated master with large built in robes and ensuite. From here you can wake to lovely views of Mt Majura, or better still, you can go for an early morning run to see the wildlife up close. Down the hallway past a second family bathroom with a full sized soaking bath and separate toilet is another living area for the kids or perhaps a home office area. Off this room are 3 queen sized bedrooms, all with built in robes. Similar in size, there won’t be any arguments about who gets the smallest room.
Through the sliding glass door from this living space, also accessible through the laundry, there is a private outdoor area and garden for relaxing, playing and utilities. This leads into the under roofline, dual car accommodation with roller doors. This will ensure your vehicles are protected from the summer heat, winter ice and thunderous hail. It can also double as extra room for that larger New Year’s Eve Party, connecting both the front and back open-air spaces. or remain secure to the back for kid’s play dates. There is also a lockable garden shed adjacent as well as additional off-street parking on the large drive that opens onto a quiet cul-de-sac.
Hackett has a great community atmosphere with many long-term residents. It has an attentive community watch program and boasts a community compost bin in Mills Street and its own community fire unit. There are evening fitness classes and other activities in the Hackett Community Centre.
All in all, this is an impressive home and location for a family or young professionals who just want more space. It combines the benefits of an inner-north locality with the advantages of modern 21st century living in a detached, single level dwelling. In a high growth suburb, its value will continue to appreciate.
