Going to auction on 17 July, this brand new executive townhouse offers Canberra Raiders fans a bird’s eye view of players as they train at Northbourne Oval.
Part of the recently completed ‘The Grounds’ project, 129/5 Donaldson Street in Braddon is unique on so many levels, whether you’re a footy fan or not.
The four-bedroom townhouse has a wide frontage, unlike most narrow units, and offers commanding views over the heritage-listed oval from the upper level.
Expansive windows take in the vistas and make the most of the north-east aspect, flooding the home with light.
But Adrian Stroh from Independent Property Group says it’s the gourmet kitchen that is the real hero of this home.
“The property is ideal for entertaining, with a fantastic kitchen flowing onto the open plan dining and living area,” he said.
“With modern appliances, it’s a great space to cook up a storm while watching the kids or entertaining guests.”
The kitchen features 40 mm stone benchtops, a massive island cooktop with a breakfast bar and a huge butler’s pantry.
An oversized induction cooktop, stainless steel oven, ducted rangehood and integrated fridge and dishwasher ticks all the boxes for family cooking.
“This kitchen will wow all of your friends when they come for dinner parties and is a delight for everyday cooking,” Adrian added.
The expansive living and dining area with stunning engineered flooring opens out to the private paved courtyard, which has a lawn space flanked by gardens, offering a fantastic area for kids to play or year-round entertaining.
Upstairs, four good-sized bedrooms, a family bathroom with tub and a light-filled second living area make this home ideal for a growing family.
Positioned on a corner overlooking Northbourne Oval, the master bedroom features a large walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with a gorgeous bathtub and dual vanity.
“There’s also a study nook upstairs, while the laundry chute adds practicality and a bit of fun to the kids’ daily chores,” Adrian added.
Whether you’re seeking privacy in the modern courtyard or taking in the views from upstairs, this home offers the best of both worlds.
The oval is heritage listed, so it won’t be built on, while the property is also bound by a green belt to the east, making for a peaceful location.
Adrian says the home has attracted interest from downsizers and families taking advantage of a cheaper way to get into the market.
He said the low maintenance yard and large living spaces were sought-after by families looking to make the most of the great location.
“The home is close to a variety of shopping, dining, entertainment and employment options, and it’s also just a short stroll to the CBD to the Lonsdale Street foodie precinct,” Adrian said.
“There’s easy access to multiple schooling options and, being part of The Grounds’ project, the home also has access to a couple of communal outdoor areas and is part of a low-cost, efficient body corporate.”
With ducted heating and cooling, LED lighting throughout and an oversized double garage, this brand new home offers indoor-outdoor living in an unbeatable location.
