Step inside this two-storey Hawker home and be amazed by the abundance of space and limitless possibilities for entertaining a crowd.

Conveniently located in a quiet street and close to playgrounds, sporting fields, walking tracks, schools and public transport facilities, you’ll find the eye-catching, six-bedroom, three-bathroom, ultra-private family home – 5 Tobermorey Place in Hawker.

With a striking street presence, Ray White real estate agent Alec Brown says the proportions of the 20-year-old home are just amazing.

“The owners were really clever regarding the use of space with this home as they’ve ensured that all family members have got privacy,” Alec says.

“They have incorporated a wonderful blend of natural light and space throughout the north-facing home, which really commands attention.

“It’s also got a low-maintenance backyard with an easy-care private entertaining area and plenty of space for family gatherings.”

Alec says the grand entrance with the wooden-framed staircase defines that idea that the home ‘spears off’ in different directions.

“From the minute you pass the entryway, you’ll see that the property is divided into different sections,” he says.

“Right next to the entrance way is the formal lounge room, the first of four different living spaces on offer, which is tucked away at the front of the home.”

“There is also a grand staircase with a lovely void in the middle, giving you that sense of space in the two-storey home. There is also a separate study and a sixth bedroom or home office option, with its own powder room too.”

Alec says the Hawker family home features a sunken formal lounge room with a lovely bay window and a sunken formal dining room with an adjoining wine cellar.

The open plan family, meals and kitchen area are also key features of the home.

“The thing that struck me the most in the kitchen is the feature joinery,” he says.

“There’s a lot of display space and well-lit areas where the glass shelves and cupboards feel quite homely.

“The owners have been really strategic about the design, making sure that the open kitchen space can cater to those that want to cook but still interact with family and friends.”

Some key features of the kitchen include a gas cooktop, a dishwasher, an appliance cupboard and plenty of cupboard space.

Alec says the six bedrooms have been well-maintained and are generously sized.

“The bedrooms each have a built-in robe, and the master has a walk-in robe,” Alec says.

“They are also carpeted.

“When the owners met with the architect and designer, the plan was to make the home comfortable for a large number of people, and by having the open living spaces and segregated rooms, they’ve achieved that.”

Alec says the bathrooms have recently been updated.

“The bedrooms upstairs have been laid out as a three-way arrangement to connect to the bathroom, which includes a separate toilet, separate vanity space, and spa bath and shower,” he says.

“They feature nice, modern finishes and are quite spacious.

“Downstairs, there’s also an additional third ensuite tucked away off the laundry.”

With two powder rooms, three bathrooms and six bedrooms, this Hawker home has it all.

Set on a massive 1035 sqm block, the grounds feature established gardens with well-maintained hedging.

“It’s got an enormous covered pergola that’s perfect for entertaining, as well as a separate courtyard,” Alec says.

“The gardens are pretty easy care and feature an artificial lawn. There’s also a wonderful veggie garden towards the side that’s concealed.

“Another key element that catches buyers’ eyes is the large, eight-seater spa.”

As well as a well-maintained alfresco, the home features an oversized double garage, reverse cycle air-conditioning, ceiling fans and underfloor heating.

Alec says although Hawker is a beautiful suburb that’s renowned for its large blocks, what makes this home a little more special, besides its attractive size and design, is that it is located right next to local shops, schools, cafes and restaurants.

“You’ve got the nature reserve right next to the suburbs too, and you’re not too far off from the CBD, which is a bonus.

“There’s just a lot of flexibility with this home, and we’ve seen an interest, not just from larger families but blended families that are looking to upsize for future kids or create a multi-generational living space.”

This home will be auctioned on Friday, 7 October, at 5:30 pm.
