This beautiful home at 9 Cheeseman Place in Gowrie is a real estate triple threat: it’s spacious, beautifully renovated and in a great location.
McIntyre Property estate agent Colin McIntyre describes the property as a perfect second-home for a family with a couple of children in tow.
“It’s got everything you could ask for and is within striking distance of some fantastic schools.”
Set on a cul-de-sac in the popular suburb of Gowrie, from the moment you cast your eyes on the tastefully coloured, clean-lined exterior of the property, you’ll be ready to settle the whole family in.
Colin says this property has been treated with love and care by its current owners, and there is really nothing that they haven’t thought about, from heating and cooling to outdoor entertaining.
The entranceway has been lovingly designed and realised, and even boasts a water feature.
Once inside, you’re first greeted by a well-sized formal lounge room under a raked ceiling which creates a spacious feel.
This flows cleanly to the formal dining room, which is perfect for family get-togethers.
It’s a home the whole family will cherish – especially the family chef. The kitchen has been renovated and, as well as a stunning view across the backyard, now offers plenty of cupboard and bench space.
Appliance-wise, there are likely to be no complaints as it has two large pantries, a dishwasher and a large range and cooktop.
After cooking, it’s time to entertain on your huge covered entertaining area, simply perfect for long summer evenings and barbecues with family and friends alike.
“It sounds clichéd, but this is very much an entertainer’s paradise,” Colin adds.
Large doors allow for a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor entertaining and living, and it’s also the perfect spot to unwind after a long day at work.
Once out here, you’ll be similarly impressed with the fit-out. There’s a large pizza oven and open fire (there really is nothing for the new owner to add).
The garden itself is vibrant and thriving, and currently requires minimal upkeep. It wraps around the home and offers several distinct spaces for simply chilling out or more entertaining.
There is also a fantastic multi-function building in the backyard, currently used as a workshop, but an astute buyer could turn it into anything they like. It would make a perfect home office space, kids playroom or shed – the list is simply endless.
According to estate agent Col, this home is well-thought-out and with both ducted gas heating and evaporative cooling, you’re prepared to tackle Canberra’s winters and summers.
“Another handy feature is the Manhattan-style laundry – just what the large family needs.”
The property boasts four large bedrooms, and the master suite offers an ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe. All rooms are light-filled with large windows looking out on to various aspects of the lush back garden.
“In this highly sought-after location, this home is not likely to be on the market for long, so I’d recommend acting quickly,” Colin says.
