Nestled into a north-facing slope adjacent to the Pinnacle Nature Reserve sits a stunningly unique home.

This magical offering was built to be a comfortable, character-filled retreat and was then renovated with sustainability in mind.

Featuring five bedrooms, two bathrooms, 2800 sqm of land, an abundance of natural light and leafy views all around, 28 Marrakai Street, Hawker, is an experience.

Ray White real estate agent Treston Bamber said the homes stuns from first sight.

“The home feels like a private resort, with its leafy exterior and amazing sense of privacy,” he said.

“You also back onto a reserve so you can hop out the back gate and find walking or mountain biking trails.”

Arriving via a long and gently curving drive, the home welcomes you through a protected porch and into a large slate entry. A sunken sun-filled formal lounge offers views over the pool with natural stone surrounds and a courtyard with the Brindabellas beyond.

To the rear, the spacious dining offers views of the back garden and Pinnacle Reserve.

A parent’s retreat includes a large bedroom, freshly renovated ensuite and walk-in robe.

The family room and kitchen highlight the views to the front and rear of the property. A recently remodelled kitchen features recycled ironbark counters and European appliances.

Further on, there is a newly renovated laundry, three light-filled double bedrooms serviced by a new family bathroom and a powder room.

The final space was originally designed as a studio/workroom and leads the eye to magnificent views over the northern Brindabellas, but could be re-imagined as the 5th bedroom or a teenager’s retreat.

This home is surrounded by established gardens, an orchard and a vegetable patch while providing several private sitting areas.

To the front, the landscaped in-ground Billabong saltwater pool and sandstone terrace complete the magic of this wonderful property.

Treston said it’s an easy home to fall in love with.

“Everyone who has come through has said they love the feel of the house and love having great views of the pool and reserve,” he said.

Moving outside, you’ll find the inground pool and many undercover sitting spaces.

Stone edging gives the pool an oasis-like feel. New pergolas and stunning stonework paving provide the ideal spot for hosting a barbeque with friends and family while the kids swim and have adventures in the yard.

With the Pinnacle Nature Reserve as your backdrop, this home offers a quiet retreat within walking distance of primary and high schools and Hawker College, parks, sports ovals and bus stops. Hawker shops are less than five minutes’ drive, with Belconnen town centre and Westfield under 10 minutes away.
