This grand Forde family haven is the ultimate living destination. Located on one of the largest blocks in the suburb, it offers privacy and spectacular views from its own secluded area.

Located on a quiet street at the edge of Mulligans Flat Reserve, 11 Justice Kelly Street, Forde, is a luxurious, newly developed property.

The spectacular family haven features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, five living spaces including one upstairs, four spacious bedrooms, with a flexible floorplan and numerous entertaining options to keep everybody impressed.

“What captivated me from the beginning is how visually incredible it looks, it’s such a good-looking house from the outside,” Stone Gungahlin real estate agent Jess Smith said.

The large 939 square metre block is on a quiet street and is conveniently located close to Burgmann Anglican School. It is only a 25-minute drive to the Canberra CBD.

When you arrive at the property, you are immediately greeted by immaculately maintained gardens leading to the grand double doors of the home.

“Once you’re inside, everything is just big,” Jess said. “The entrance is big, the space is big, the living areas are huge, the bedrooms are a great size, the alfresco is amazing, everything is just huge.”

When you enter, the first thing that catches your eye is the feature staircase, made of wrought iron and ceramic tiles with a chandelier that hangs from the impressive six-metre-high ceiling.

You then walk into a foyer, with a formal lounge and dining area combination. There is a separate living space, decked out with rich and elegant jarrah floorboards, and numerous windows to brighten up the home.

“One of the most beautiful things about this property is the blend of formal and informal spaces when you first walk in, and they flow to the alfresco really nicely,” Jess said.

“It’s definitely a family-friendly home.

“As soon as you go out to the alfresco area, you’ve got this incredible in-ground and undercover pool which you can see through these massive glass panels from the kitchen. I just think it is amazing and perfect for families.”

At the heart of the home sits the large designer kitchen with an almost four-metre waterfall stone benchtop, high-end appliances, soft-closing drawers and plenty of storage with a large butler’s pantry.

Through the glass sliding doors is an outdoor area perfect for family gatherings with a built-in barbecue.

“One of the things I love about it most is the segregated living areas that flow really beautifully,” Jess said.

With 2.7-metre ceilings, large windows fill the bedrooms on the lower floor. There is a separate toilet and sink, perfect for having guests over, while the main bathroom has dual sinks in a Caesarstone benchtop.

The main feature of one of the bathrooms is the large in-built spa, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling tiles and with a glass screen shower.

When you walk upstairs, you’re immersed in a segregated 94 square metre master bedroom that showcases its own private balcony space. You have spectacular views of Parliament House and the amazing sunsets over the Brindabellas.

The luxurious ensuite has floor-to-ceiling marble tiles, twin Caesarstone benchtops and a freestanding bath.

There is also an impressive study area with amazing views, seen through two floor-to-ceiling windows, over Mulligans Flat.

The home also features an oversized double garage.

Jess said the property is on one of the biggest blocks in Forde, and features a large outdoor space that is great for entertaining.

“It’s got 350 square metres of just internal living alone, so it’s a very large residence with just over 500 square metres all up.

“We’ve already had two open homes and just over 50 families attend, so we’re looking forward to some great numbers this weekend.”

The next inspection takes place this Saturday, 12 March, at 2:30 pm.
