Situated within the quiet, leafy suburb of Melba, this charming villa sits within a boutique development of eight townhouses, close to green spaces and tennis club. This is a villa like no other!
Lovingly and thoughtfully renovated, this very special three-bedroom home, has a gorgeous continuity of design with distinct Parisian flare and opens to a wonderfully planted private garden at its rear.
Resting on the high side of the gently curved entrance road, set-back behind mature plantings, the façade is a combo of blended brick, pitched roof with terracotta tiles. Large picture windows frame trees, sky and a generous paved arena heralds you to the covered front porch.
The interiors feature warm spotted gum hardwood flooring, a soft palette of white on white with rich timber accents. There is a gentleness to this home, a sense of order and easy circular flow, sheer curtains soften views to enveloping gardens creating a felt sense of quiet serenity.
A cosy living area with study nook, welcomes northern and western light and connects to the master suite. Overlooking the front garden, this sequestered master room has ample built-in-wardrobes and opens directly to a modern two-way bathroom, with walk-in rain shower, tub and rustic natural stone basin.
Two elegant bedrooms, graced with warming north-east light, overlook the rose garden.
The kitchen has a French provincial feel, with white timber cabinetry and framed cedar bay window, that reaches out toward terraced alfresco dining area, creating the perception of extra space. Custom ironbark timber benches enrich and warm, and subway tiling adds a cosmopolitan vibe.
The romantic, sun drenched dining area with textured wallpaper and pendant lighting has direct access to the garden, blurring the boundary from inside to out.
The hero of the garden is the covered dining area. Magnificent stag horns, camelias, a potted lemon contribute to this verdant sanctuary, providing light, lovely shade. Easy flat lawns wrap around to the eastern side of the house where a stand of roses and established trees privately enclose. A bounty of showy perennial ground covers bestows texture and colour.
Melba is a suburb in the Belconnen district, positioned at the foot of Mt Roger’s, and known for its family friendly, relaxed vibe and community spirit. Walking distance to schools, parks, transport and Ginninderra Creek, BMX Club and Melba Half Acre Wood. The home is surrounded by green space and reserve. Close to the fabulous Melba shops, with local favourite Café Mamé, famous for its delicious pastries and vegan options, and to the Belconnen precinct, connecting you to a plethora of shopping, dining and entertainment options.
The home is also handy to the UC, AIS, Lake Ginninderra, Bruce Stadium and just 19 minutes to the CBD.
