If you have imagined a life in a semi-rural, peaceful location surrounded by gorgeous countryside and views of the mountains in the distance, but you need to be near your place of work, or you just don’t want to completely give away the entertainment and facilities that the city offers, 83 Jim Bradley Crescent may be just the place for you.

This modern family home is located in the popular Uriarra Village just 20 minutes from the Weston Creek shopping precinct. With its shops, restaurants and cafés, and the area’s choice of educational institutions, the urban/rural balance doesn’t get much better.

The four-bedroom home has a lovely street appeal and the property backs onto an open reserve. Freshly painted throughout in neutral tones, the home is ready to move on in and enjoy the space and light that rural living offers.

“This is a hidden gem,” says Luton Weston Creek and Molonglo Valley agent Tim Burke.

“We live in the Bush Capital, and here you will get a lovely modern house on a bigger block for a fraction of the price of those suburbs nearby.”

Tim says homes in Uriarra Village are tightly held so this is a rare opportunity.

The light-filled open-plan kitchen, dining and living area is the highlight of the home, designed to maximise the surrounding views through large, dual-aspect windows to take in stunning sunsets over the mountains.

The modern, well-equipped kitchen, with an island breakfast bar and serene rural outlook, is sure to be the hub of the home. This area flows seamlessly to a generously sized rear deck with a covered BBQ area and room for alfresco entertaining complete with a fire pit, fixed trampoline and play equipment set among landscaped gardens.

“The home has been built to take advantage of the views of the mountains and the fields directly behind it,” Tim says.

Positioned to the rear of the home, the master bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and an open ensuite featuring a bathtub perfectly positioned to gaze at the relaxing country views through the picture window.

A large, modern main bathroom and laundry separate the second bedroom with a built-in wardrobe from the master suite.

The remaining two bedrooms and a lounge room sit at the front of the property on either side of the main entrance.

Set on a 1224 square metre block, the generously sized rear yard includes a separate studio, storage shed and water tank, and nothing but nature as far as the eye can see.

There is also a drive-through, double automatic garage and ample additional off-street parking space.

The home has double-glazed windows and ducted reverse-cycle heating and cooling to ensure year-round comfort.

The Uriarra Village is a small village in a semi-rural location with a welcoming community and recreational amenities that include a community centre, tennis court, swimming pool, playground and access to horse agistment nearby.

“Many people have never driven out here to see what it is like, but it is so close to town.

“This fabulous home, with the enviable lifestyle it offers, presents sensational value compared to those in traditional nearby suburbs.”
