If you’ve been hunting for a clever and well-thought-out home that makes the most of living space and play space, and has character and convenience, look no further than 5 Serpentine Street, Duffy.
The height of this home showcases some of Canberra’s best sights – lots of greenery and bushy outlooks, as well as beautiful sunrises over Black Mountain Tower in the distance.
With five bedrooms, a large yard, a separate study and multiple living spaces, this family home looks to make everyone as comfortable as possible.
LJ Hooker real estate agent Sandra Masters said the space and layout were extremely attractive features.
“One of the best things about this home is its floor plan. It is really well thought out and makes family life so much easier,” she said.
“When the home was extended upwards and the floor plan was adjusted, it was made so that you have distinct areas upstairs and downstairs.”
Making your way into the home, you’ll notice the impressive high ceilings and light-filled spaces.
On the ground floor are three spacious bedrooms, two with built-in mirrored robes, ample formal living space, and a separate informal lounge and dining area, all of which are connected by the generous family kitchen.
Original french-style windows maintain the character of the original home, while the upgrades throughout give you the best of both worlds.
The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, gas stove, electric oven, and dedicated microwave and fridge cavities. The main bathroom has all necessities, including a bath, shower, and a separate toilet.
Moving upstairs, you’ll find the home’s final two bedrooms. The fourth bedroom features a private balcony to enjoy the great views of the surrounding area.
The master bedroom has an impressive walk-in robe, a split system unit and a contemporary ensuite, complemented by a wide vanity and shower.
Sandra said the home has a lot of character.
“The home is very impressive, especially as you make your way through the fantastic entryway. You have these five-metre high ceilings and fantastic cathedral windows that give this amazing sense of character,” she said.
Moving outside, you’ll find a generous backyard featuring an undercover area for entertainment and a large lawn at your disposal with plenty of room and functionality. It has well-established gardens and landscaping out front alongside a single drive-through secure carport with an automatic door plus an additional carport and lock-up garage.
5 Serpentine Street, Duffy is only 15 minutes away from the City, seven minutes from Stromlo Forrest park and 1.5 km to Cooleman Court plus several parks, playgrounds, walks, ovals and a basketball court (and it’s a short walk to local shops).
The home will be open for inspection this Saturday (1 October) from 11 to 11:30 am.
