Raising a family in Canberra requires a home with room to move, and the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home at 40 Davidson Street in Higgins is an ideal family home with plenty of living space.

With a paved driveway leading to the double garage, the home is set at a slight angle to the street and has established trees and gardens shading the home. With a split-level interior and high ceilings, the home has exposed beams, brick feature walls and three different areas for families and friends to gather.

The entrance to the home leads to a hall with the living areas to the right and the master bedroom suite to the left. The hallway leads to an open plan kitchen and dining room and the enclosed alfresco dining and entertaining area.

To the right of the entrance hallway, a sunken lounge with a brick fireplace and a combustion stove and built-in shelving units provide a cosy space for entertaining on colder winter nights. Above the sunken lounge is a second living area, with plenty of room for connecting with family and friends and making an excellent family gathering zone during the evenings, or for larger gatherings.

Overhead fans circulate air, keeping warm air flowing from the combustion stove to where it is needed and providing cool air circulation in warmer months. The home has reverse-cycle air conditioning, which will keep you and your family comfortable all year round, no matter the weather.

The kitchen and dining are complemented by the undercover, flyscreen-enclosed alfresco dining. It provides an enormous entertaining space without the insect participation that makes alfresco dining synonymous with swatting flies. The outdoor entertainment area has an overhead fan and tiled flooring, ideal for outdoor comfort.

The home has four bedrooms, the master with an ensuite and built-in robes, and an overhead fan to circulate air on warm summer nights.

Bedroom one is a large room, with external access to the enclosed outdoor living, providing both easy access and plenty of fresh air during warm summer nights. It also has an overhead fan. Bedroom three has external access to the backyard behind a lockable wooden gate.

The family bathroom provides everything a family will need, with a full-length bath, shower and toilet, and a separate study area next to the laundry making an ideal space for a home office or a dedicated study area. Storage is easy, with built-in cupboards and storage ready for the home office supplies.


The study will make an ideal homework space or a home office.

McIntyre Property principal Colin McIntyre said the home is a rare gem and will be popular with families looking to upsize.

“The home is located in a superb spot in Higgins, with easy access to both Drake Brockman Drive for commuters to the city or beyond, under 10-minutes’ drive from Belconnen Town Centre, and it’s a four-bedroom, two-bathroom family home that has extensive outdoor living options,” said Mr McIntyre.

“The backyard is great. It has enough room for any amount of kids, and it has a lined shed ready for the home handyman and some fantastic features which make the home a real find. There’s a double garage, which is a must for busy families, and plenty of room to entertain.”

The home is within 10-minutes’ drive of 10 different schools and six-minutes to Kippax, just 10-minutes by foot to the Higgins shops, and three-minutes’ drive to the National Health Co-op in Higgins.

It is also an easy five-minute walk to the nearest playground on Bevan Street and three-minutes’ drive to the nearest childcare centre for families with younger children.

The home will go to auction on Saturday, 13 March, at 12:00 pm onsite.
