If you’re after space and simplicity in a peaceful location, put this Palmerston property on your must-see list.
Beautifully positioned at the end of a quiet cul de sac is the fully enclosed, three bedroom, two bathroom home on a 769 sqm block – 8 Arid Place.
Ray White Canberra real estate agent Troy Reddick said the home has everything a professional couple or a young family could want.
“If they’re looking for separate living areas, ensuite bathrooms, outdoor entertaining, a block for kids and pets, and something that doesn’t need work done to it, this home has all of that,” Troy said.
“Often we’ll see good homes, but they might be missing something, or it’s on a busy road, or there’s no entertaining area, but this home ticks all the boxes.
“It’s also set in a nice, quiet area with no traffic, which is a bonus.”
The recently renovated home is flooded with light and it’s infused with neutral and modern tones.
“The abundance of natural light is definitely a key feature,” Troy said.
“It’s got a wonderful northerly aspect and a lot of glass windows to take advantage of that, so you get a lot of natural light coming through all the living areas.
“The quality of the finishes in the bathrooms is also a highlight.”
With a split-level design, this home provides two separate living areas, a formal and informal space, so the kids and the parents can have their own space, which is also a favourite feature.
The kitchen offers access to the alfresco area and features a gas cooktop, a double drawer dishwasher and ample cupboard space.
“The blend of pastel colours complement the neutral tones of the home nicely too.”
As well as offering ample open space living areas, the three bedrooms are also large.
“All the bedrooms are quite generously sized and can fit a queen-sized bed in them,” he said.
“The master bedroom has a walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom, and the other two bedrooms have built-in mirrored robes.
“When it comes to the bathrooms, the combination of high-quality finishes and neutral tones also stand out.”
But the ‘wow factor’ is outside – the recently installed Merbau timber deck.
“The timber is beautiful. It’s the first thing that catches your eye as you step outside into the alfresco area. The family room flows effortlessly onto the fully covered timber deck, and it’s just perfect for family gatherings and barbeques.
“The kids have the space and opportunity to play in the backyard and run around, or even have pets, while the parents can have their own zone.”
This entertainer’s dream features ducted heating and cooling, plus a 3.5-star energy rating which ensures all-year-round comfort.
There is also a double garage, Colourbond fencing, well-maintained landscaping and established fruit trees.
“I think what draws young families the most about this property is the proximity to Palmerston Primary School,” he said.
“The Gungahlin Town Centre is also only a five-minute drive away, with its retail precinct offering a variety of stores and eateries.
“There’s so much to like about this property, and we’ve seen a lot of interest in it so far.”
This Palmerston home will be auctioned on Saturday, 24 September, at 11 am.
