Tucked into a quiet cul-de-sac in the sought-after neighbourhood of Nicholls, 8 Gehrs Close paints the picture of a perfect family home.

Located on a peaceful tree-lined street, the property has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, five living spaces and a swimming pool, and backs onto parkland and a playground.

The spacious 853 square metre block was built on in 1994 and the home is suitable for a family looking to live in one of Canberra’s prestigious suburbs.

Paul Corazza from Independent Gungahlin said the property has been home to several families in the past.

Living area

One of five living areas.

“Interestingly, it is the first house to be constructed in Nicholls and one of the first to have a swimming pool,” Mr Corazza said.

“Children can be seen riding their bikes and playing soccer or basketball in this tight-knit community.”

The home provides for a relaxed environment with established private gardens and traditional brick walls.

It has been expertly designed to cater to a growing family’s requirements and the north-east aspect ensures that living spaces get maximum natural sunlight.

The indoors seamlessly flow into the outdoor area, which has a garden, a solar-heated swimming pool and ample green space for children to play in.

A formal lounge area in the front part of the house provides an ideal formal living space to entertain guests.

The warm kitchen has vast storage space with generous cupboards and large benchtops. It connects beautifully to the open plan family and meal areas. On special occasions, these areas can be closed off from the dining and living spaces.

The Gehrs Close property is also one of the first homes in the suburb to have radiant electric heating.

“Radiant electric heating refers to a heating system in the ceiling instead of the underfloor heating that people are familiar with,” Mr Corazza said.

“It’s like having an electric blanket on the ceiling that radiates the heat down. This system is beneficial for people who suffer from respiratory diseases like asthma.”

The house also has a rumpus room and a separate study that enables you to comfortably work from home.

Located at the front of the house, the master bedroom provides a space for a private retreat. The spacious main bedroom with timber flooring has garden views and a sizeable walk-in robe and ensuite with a spa bath.

Three more bedrooms are positioned at the rear end of the house with windows opening to the pool and garden areas.

The home offers a range of other notable features including zoned heating, ducted evaporative cooling, NBN connection, double garage with internal access to the home, and attic storage space.

Nicholls, named after Sir Douglas Ralph Nicholls, a footballer-turned activist and pastor, is regarded as one of the premium suburbs in Gungahlin. The median sale of house prices in the area in the past 12 months has been over $800,000.

It is located a short distance away from Gungahlin Lake, walking trails, local parks, Gungahlin Town Centre market, and Casey market.

A number of educational institutions including Burgmann Anglican School, Gungahlin College, Gold Creek Primary School, and Gold Creek High School are in the vicinity.

The home at 8 Gehrs Close in Nicholls goes to auction on Saturday, 10 October at 12:00 pm. You can find this perfect family home and other hot listings on Zango.
