Come and fall in love with this beautiful property that has been a cherished family home for 27 years.

In the established suburb of Evatt, 36 Fitzhardinge Crescent will take your breath away with its lush green, vibrant garden and spectacular views of the Brindabellas.

LJ Hooker Dickson real estate agent Ryan Hedley said the property is best described as “a family home that exudes character”.

“This property is unique because the owners have made this home their dream home, something they never wanted to leave,” he said.

“It takes your breath straight away. There’s a rainforest type of feel as soon as you enter with so much greenery and lushness around the home.”

Ryan said this property is so much more than a four-bedroom, three-bathroom home.

“When you’ve been in a home for as long as these people have, you’ve got that warmth and comfort of a family home.”

This home is designed with versatility in mind, featuring a combination of modern and classic interior, with an iconic spiral staircase, bedrooms located on one half of the house, and a large living room on the other.

“As soon as you walk in, you have a nice, large, open living and family area, and around the corner, there’s a lovely dining area with a balcony where you can take in those sensational views, and it’s perfect or outdoor dining or entertaining.

“The modern designed kitchen also takes advantage of those views.”

There are four spacious bedrooms in the living quarters, featuring wooden flooring and room for all bed sizes and furniture.

The bathrooms are beautifully renovated to include a large shower, a low bathtub (perfect for kids) and plenty of storage.

“I think the most important update the owners did throughout the home was double glazing to make it as energy-efficient as possible.

“It’s not often that you see homes of this age or in established suburbs like this that have had all of that work done already. It’s usually left for a new buyer to do it all and it often gets neglected.”

As you move downstairs, Ryan said the section could be the perfect set-up for a kid’s playroom, creative space or perhaps a second living space.

“I think its versatility is probably the most important feature because it can be used for whatever anyone wants.”

The area currently has a pool room, study and fireplace, making it perfect for those cold Canberra nights to snuggle up and watch a movie or relax and unwind with the family.

As you walk outside, it leads to the lush greenery in the backyard, featuring a privately tucked away outdoor spa.

“It’s almost like a layered outdoor area, you’ve got the rear covered area that’s surrounded by established greenery so it makes you feel like you are walking through nature, and you’ve got that large spa that is perfect on a cold winter’s day.”

The exterior also features lime trees, a big veggie patch and a courtyard, perfect for outdoor entertaining among the overhanging Japanese maples and fragrant daphnes.

This home comes with a double lock-up garage, reverse-cycle air conditioning, solar panels and gas ducted heating.

Ryan explained that the little things stand out most in this house, such as the two working wood fireplaces and how you can entertain friends and family and have enough space for the extended family and guests.

To top it all off, there’s the location – it’s only minutes from shopping centres and schools.

“You’re a very short drive from the Belconnen Town Centre, so there’s just so much convenience at your fingertips and plenty of fantastic Uber Eats options!”
