With a combination of indoor and outdoor living, high ceilings, recent renovations, and breathtaking views of Mount Taylor, this Kambah home might just be the perfect place for you.
Located in a peaceful cul-de-sac, 8 Kearne Place in Kambah is full of character, contemporary design features, and open-plan living spaces.
Set on a 1003 square metre block, with 133 square metres of living space, this home impresses from the minute you step inside.
Ray White Canberra real estate agent Lisa Silberberg describes it as an exceptional family home designed for those who love to entertain.
“You’re drawn into a big, vast open living area or family room which opens directly onto the alfresco outdoor space,” Lisa said.
“It is really unique as it truly fosters the indoor-outdoor lifestyle, which many buyers seek, especially at this time of year.
“In addition to the lifestyle elements, people will enjoy the land allocation, as the block is over 1000 square metres, positioned at the end of a sleepy cul-de-sac.”
The Ray White Canberra real estate agent said 8 Kearne Place was a split-level home.
“The bedroom level is raised above and overlooking the open living space nested below,” Lisa said.
“The living room also enjoys these really special, expansive double-glazed windows together with retracting sliders that lead out to the impressive covered alfresco deck and family-friendly rear garden.
“This renovation seamlessly brings together stone accents, earthly textures, portrait lighting and raked ceilings with floating timber flooring to provide a considered and timeless home end to end.”
The home also features ducted heating and cooling, double-glazed windows and doors to the front, roller blinds with pelmets and privacy sheers and new carpets and window furnishings throughout.
In the kitchen, you’ll find black stone benchtops, quality tapware and a generously sized walk-in pantry with an abundance of overhead and underbench cabinets and drawers.
“As a parent I love, and feel others will too, that the benches are so generous that they allow space to meal prep while overseeing homework at the end of the day. The children can sit right around you, inside and out. It is so inclusive and an area where families and friends will love to come together,” Lisa said.
“People really love that the windows retract right through, acting as a servery for the entertaining area of the home.”
Other features of the kitchen include the freestanding 900-millimetre Omega oven/cooktop, a Bosch dishwasher and a preparation space which overlooks the extensive open-plan living room and outdoor entertaining area.
The Kambah home features four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
“The bedrooms are all standard-sized and all four include built-in robes and really tall ceilings,” Lisa said.
“All the bedrooms have new carpets and are freshly painted with neutral tones and colours, so this will allow buyers to incorporate their own swatches of colour.”
The master suite includes a walk-in robe and its own ensuite bathroom. There’s also an additional storage space in the hallway with a walk-in and linen press.
Lisa said the bathrooms also feature floor-to-ceiling tiles and a spa bath to provide “the ultimate haven of relaxation and romance”.
“They have just been renovated too,” she said.
“The main bathroom incorporates a large double spa, so there is capacity to use that space as a relaxation and rejuvenation area.
“The colours and designs are very modern and have that appealing contemporary completion.”
Lisa said the open-plan design home embraces an indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
“The outdoor kitchen and entertaining area are one of the highlights of the home,” she said.
The outdoor kitchen incorporates a freestanding barbecue and has plenty of storage as well. It is elevated and overlooks Mount Taylor.
“The extra-wide driveway leads to a free-standing, large double-enclosed carport with shade sails that allows for plenty of parking.
8 Kearne Place will be open for inspection on Saturday 26 November, from 1 pm to 1:40 pm, and will go to auction on Saturday 10 December at 10 am.
