McCaughey Magic – in the words of the owners “this is a home that flows well and just works”.
Placing you on the fringe of the City yet with green space and parkland around you this impeccable Turner residence constructed in the early 1940’s on a 976m2 approx. block will just amaze, it will feel like a ‘City oasis’. The proud residents of 37 years have produced an absolute haven both indoors and out. Rarely will you find a home that has received so much love and attention and it truly shows with 7 McCaughey Street. Purchased in 1984 and then extended to more than double its size, this expansive four bedroom ensuite family home will impress from the moment you arrive with its period facade and lush gardens setting the scene for something special.
Upon entering you will undoubtedly appreciate what has been created with the additions being designed to blend beautifully with the original neighbourhood and character of the home. A great deal of thought has been put into ensuring that the gardens are enjoyed from both inside and outside on any given day. To the front is the gorgeous formal living area with a bay window and slow combustion fireplace adding to the ambience of this lovely room. To the rear is the sprawling combined kitchen, dining and family area where the large windows allow an abundance of natural light to stream in. Here you can cater for the largest of family gatherings as the chef of the home cooks up a storm whilst still being able to interact with guests. You will also be able to picture yourself tucked away in a quiet sunny corner reading a book or just relaxing as it is simply divine with the view to outside topping it off.
Hard wearing bamboo flooring is carried throughout the home and into the four excellent size bedrooms with the huge master enjoying the luxury of a large ensuite with a re-enamelled cast iron bath, a walk-in robe and external access to an outside private courtyard. The second bedroom was the original large master bedroom, the third bedroom has a built-in robe and excellent shelving, and the fourth bedroom comfortably accepts a queen bed. Other wonderful features include ducted gas heating, a Ventis air flow system, solar hot water, powder room – including a third toilet, copious amounts of storage, high ceilings, Luxaflex honeycomb duet blinds throughout, terracotta tiled roof and so much more.
Outdoors has been a labour of love with the gorgeous leafy gardens being nurtured for years to create healthy growing and long term sustainability, and with a mixture of lovely cherry trees, shrubs, lawn area and veggie garden, there is something for everyone. The rear garden is not overlooked by neighbours and has been completely privatised with greenery. Enjoy alfresco dining in the paved courtyard area as you take in the serenity of the surrounds on offer, it certainly doesn’t feel like you are only a couple of minutes from the City.
A large double full brick garage that ties in beautifully with the home completes a most impressive picture. The garage also has an abundance of storage and a remote control door. A large separate insulated study to the rear provides you with the perfect office away from the home, offering further extensive storage and a quiet, peaceful yet very pleasant environment to work in.
No need for the car when you can stroll down to the buzzing O’Connor shopping centre, the RUC Turner bowls club, the ANU aquatic centre, the ANU gym or wander through leafy Haig Park. An easy walk will take you to the City Centre and Braddon where you can wine and dine at a number of wonderful restaurants and cafes or shop to your hearts content. Come and see for yourself what a truly wonderful offering this exceptionally located and much loved home is.
