Like peas in a pod, this pair of architecturally designed homes are a must-see for all young families searching for the perfect home to settle down in.

Located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking the spectacular and breath-taking Brindabellas, you’ll find 9 Mein Place in Latham.

Designed as two separate residences, the family-friendly homes combine privacy with living, featuring four bedrooms and two bathrooms, divided by open living room spaces and kitchens, with two different floor plans and optimal space for young families.

“The feeling of this home is really special,” said Luton real estate agent Nick Paine. “There’s a lot of attention to detail with this home and a lot of focus on practicality.”

Set on a 915 sqm block, the property is divided into two units of 216 square metres and 221 square metres. It’s minutes from Kippax shopping centre and the Belconnen Town Centre, and less than 20-minutes from the Canberra CBD.

“There are only 10 houses on the street and it’s full of brand new houses, with another one to be constructed across the road,” Nick said.

“It is unique for a whole street in an established area to be under five years old.”

Nick said when you first lay your eyes on the stunning homes, the beautiful north-facing windows set the scene for what awaits you inside.

“The timber on white is such a bold statement when you first see the homes. It’s clearly built for young families,” he said.

“It’s got great open living areas. The living space and kitchen are designed so that there’s a lot of space for everyone, and if kids want to go play outside, you can still be involved in conversations inside.”

Nick said the beautifully pitched ceilings create a cathedral look to the home, complementing the very modern design of the homes, but adding “a bit of a country twist”.

“The homes have very soft touches of colour inside and there’s a lot of use of light green, which again just makes it feel really different from the modern home.”

Each home features an open-plan kitchen with stone benchtops, new electric ovens, stainless steel appliances, LED lighting and a walk-in pantry.

As you walk upstairs, you are immersed in the sanctuary of the home, four bedrooms accompanied by two spacious bathrooms.

Three generous bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes while the master bedroom has a walk-in.

Another unique feature: they’re split level.

“The living area is away from all the bedrooms, so in terms of having people over, they’re not going to go into your personal space.

“And there are the views from the double-glazed windows to the tops of the Brindabellas.”

Each home has its own alfresco area (either 12 sqm or 19 sqm) and a separate backyard.

“They are really private outdoor areas, which were created to give as much privacy as possible,” he said.

“The only thing the units share is the driveway at the end of the cul-de-sac.”

It also features a double garage, allowing plenty of car space for owners.

Nick said there has been a lot of interest, particularly from young families.

“We’ve seen a lot of interest in a few young families looking to get into an established area with something that’s new,” he said.

“There’s a lot of young families and younger people in this area, and then there are people that have been there for 40 years, so we’re really keen to see what happens with these homes.”

The next inspection is on Saturday, 19 March at 1:15 pm.
