In today’s hotly contested property market, it’s pretty rare to find a townhouse in Ngunnawal like this charming single-level one at 2/26-30 Margany Close.

Location-wise, you don’t get much better than this.

Within walking distance of Yerrabi Pond with its impressive playground and Gungahlin Marketplace, there’s a light rail stop practically at your doorstep meaning the city is a stress-free ride away.

You’re also situated not far from the Gungahlin Lakes golf course, another feature of the area.

From the outside, it looks just like a quintessential bricked Canberra home, with recent developments towering in the distance, perfectly marrying old and new.

According to Luton Gungahlin real estate agent Rebecca Scholes, the property presents a rare possibility for first-home buyers to enter the market, for those who are looking to downsize and for investors to purchase a property with amazing rental potential.

“We don’t see a lot of homes come onto the market that fit this price range,” Rebecca says.

“The other stand-out is that the home is almost a resort-style, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a double garage, which is pretty rare.”

She recommends that interested buyers get in quick as interest is high.

The property’s three bedrooms are all spacious, and the master has a walk-in robe and tidy ensuite, and bedrooms two and three with built-in robes.

There are also two segregated living areas and an open-plan and kitchen with ample storage space, a dishwasher and stainless steel appliances.

Rebecca says having two separate living areas is more than perfect for families with young children to allow for that little bit of space and separation that’s more than necessary.

The property retains its original kitchen, including the wine bottle holders, which Rebecca says are definitely a fan favourite.

The light and bright kitchen flows seamlessly into a dining space where the family can gather and spend quality time together.

This opens up via sliding doors to a north-facing courtyard, offering a substantial space for alfresco dining.

It’s also a move-in ready space as it has been recently painted throughout and new carpet has been laid in the bedrooms.

The front and rear gardens have also been recently landscaped – all you have to do is move in and unpack the bags.

When it comes to the practicalities, you’re well taken care of with ducted gas heating, evaporative cooling and a double-car electric garage with internal access and a separate side door to the backyard.

And all of this is found in a quiet four-home complex with a beautiful homely feel that’s perfect for children to grow up in.

According to Rebecca, strata fees are also relatively low for the area.

The property will go to auction on Saturday, 14 August at 11:00 am, so there is still plenty of time for interested buyers to come along and inspect the house.
