Beautiful family home set in one of Downers most glorious treelined streets!
Set in stunning, sought after, family friendly Durack Street where the tall leafy trees form a gorgeous canopy from one end to the other, is this impeccable home that has been extended and tastefully renovated over time. Loved and enjoyed for decades by the current owners this five-bedroom, two bathroom residence has a fabulous floor plan that can be adapted to suit with the flexibility to utilise the bedrooms as a study or separate living area, depending on your needs.
Offering a wonderful interaction with the outdoors and garden areas you can be assured that the home can be enjoyed on any given day, no matter what the weather is. As you arrive you will be impressed by the glorious setting and upon entering be captivated by the warmth, abundant light and amount of space on offer. The beautiful expansive combined living and dining area with new carpet provides an exceptional amount of space and a lovely garden aspect through the fabulous double glazed Cedar windows with a north facing bay window adding that special touch. From here we move through into the terrific kitchen/meals area that features extensive storage space, a dishwasher and gas cooktop, with striking new vinyl flooring completing a wonderful picture.
All of the bedrooms are a generous size with two having built-in robes and the charming huge master/parents retreat a walk-in robe and close access to the outdoors. Other fabulous features include ducted gas heating, evaporative cooling, under floor heating to the main bathroom, continuous hot water, excellent storage, Cedar double glazed windows throughout, wall insulation to the extension and 5kw solar panels to the roof (20 in total).
Step outside onto the stunning, extensive covered deck and tranquil landscaped secure rear gardens where you can sit back and relax, enjoying outdoor entertaining with family and friends, barbecues, a quiet drink or that morning or afternoon cuppa. The gardens are all taken care of by the irrigation system which is automatic to the front and side and manual to the back and there is the bonus of two 2000 litre rainwater tanks with a pump, and two smaller tanks. A large as new garage and carport provide ample car accommodation and storage and as well as doubling as an extension of the entertaining area if required.
Perfectly located within walking distance of the buzzing reinvigorated Downer shopping centre, the Dickson shopping precinct, cafes, an excellent choice of preschool, (Downer preschool is just down the lane about 400m away) primary, high schools and colleges, ovals, ACT Netball Centre, Yowani golf club, the Australian Catholic University and bus routes. You will find yourself only few hundred meters, 5 minute approx. walk from the closest light rail stop placing you within a short ride of the CBD.
