If you’re in the market for a new family home in an established suburb, 8 Smith Street in Weetangera could be the property for you. With four spacious bedrooms, a study, two luxurious bathrooms and two car spaces, this lovingly renovated home is ideal for families who appreciate space, quality and functional design.

The current owners have completely renovated every aspect of the home, including the kitchen.

Kris Hellier from McGrath Estate Agents Gungahlin says that the property would be particularly appealing to families who want to move straight in.

“The home has been fully renovated from top to bottom. The current owner is a builder and has renovated not just the interior and what you can see throughout the home, but he’s also done work behind the scenes to bring the EER [energy efficiency rating] up to a five,” he says.

Large covered entertaining flows to an established garden.

“It’s the small details that are great about this listing. From the beautiful and well-maintained landscaped gardens and large entertaining area that wraps around the home, to extra large doors and ducted gas and evaporative heating, they’ve really thought of everything.

“Even the garage is extra large, with an additional carport, which is perfect for anyone who wants extra space for hobbies or tools.”

The large backyard is well-maintained with space for kids, pets and entertaining.

Located in a sought-after enclave, 8 Smith Street is surrounded by in-demand properties. Neighbouring property 7 Smith Street broke the Weetangera suburb record when it sold for $2 million in 2018, while 9 Smith Street sold last year for $1.4 million and – at the time of writing – ranked sixth in the suburb’s list of top sales.

And while developers have bought other properties in the area with a view to building townhouses, Kris says this home appeals specifically to families.

“The amount of work that’s been done on this home, it’s just perfect for families. It’s in a nice quiet location, it has easy access to Belconnen Way, and it’s beautifully finished.”

With 210 square metres of living space, plus a 71 square metre patio, 8 Smith Street has plenty of room for the whole family. Its sprawling, single-level layout has three separate living areas.

The home boasts several sun-drenched living spaces.

The master bedroom features a walk-in robe and a his and hers ensuite with a free-standing bath. The remaining three bedrooms are double bedrooms with built-in robes.
