Canberra’s highest elevated home is on the market for the first time since it was built almost 30 years ago.
Designed to maximise the incredible views while making the most of the natural beauty of the bush block, the home is nestled perfectly into Wanniassa Hill in the highly sought-after Sparkes Close.
Independent Property sales consultant Jonathan Charles says 29 Sparkes Close in Fadden is the most elevated address in Canberra, boasting commanding views from every room.
“This home was designed to hug the hill and blend in with its surrounds,” Jonathan said.
“It’s overwhelmingly high and the views are spectacular, especially from the upstairs master bedroom.”
Jonathan says every window in every room on both levels boasts a view of the bushland or over the valley to the mountains beyond but upstairs – the vistas are breathtaking.
Set on a substantial 1,713 square metre parcel of land and backing onto the Wanniassa Hill Nature Reserve, the grand four-bedroom home has a study and multiple living spaces.
“The home is huge and ready for a family to move straight in and grow,” Jonathan said.
“It was built in the 90s so it’s a little bit dated, but just waiting for someone to do some minor cosmetic upgrades and add their own personal touch.
“The kitchen has had a facelift and there’s really not a lot that needs to be done to transform this magnificent property into a modern home.
“For an older style home, it’s got so much charm.”
The kitchen has been designed to accommodate large families and guests with an abundance of bench space, quality appliances, a walk-in pantry and loads of storage.
The meals area opens onto the balcony for alfresco dining, creating the ultimate entertaining venue with a formal dining room at the centre of the home flowing to the lounge room with breathtaking views.
The huge parent’s retreat has an ensuite with a spa bath and shower, spacious walk-in robes and a private balcony boasting the best views in the home.
The remaining bedrooms all feature spectacular views and walk-in robes.
Jonathan says the owners raised their family in the idyllic location, but they are now ready to downsize.
“The family had many great years in this home,” he said.
“With 250 square metres of living space, plus multiple alfresco decks and a huge sub-floor area, there’s loads of space for young kids or teenagers to enjoy.”
The home sits on a battleaxe block and backs on to bushland, offering a myriad of bushwalking, mountain bike riding and exploring opportunities, as well as local wildlife, right outside the back gate.
“The bush feels like an extension to your own property,” Jonathan said.
“And it’s on a battleaxe block, so it feels very private – it’s a private oasis.”
The landscaped gardens have been meticulously designed to allow maximum entertaining while also providing plenty of space for future landscaping or garden beds.
Stunning sandstone is used in many retaining walls and paths, and there’s a large enough space to install a swimming pool.
The home features hardwood flooring downstairs, a wine cellar and ducted gas heating.
There’s plenty of parking and storage, a double carport, and massive under house space with the potential to create a games room, home gym, or workshop.
With a selection of great schools and parks close by, the home is only a five-minute drive from Erindale Shopping Centre, nine minutes from South.Point Tuggeranong and 15 minutes to the Westfield Woden Shopping Centre.
Jonathan says this is a rare opportunity to purchase one of the most outstanding homes in the best street in Fadden and even the whole of Tuggeranong.
