This four-bedroom, two-bathroom family home at 7 McCay Place at Pearce has been on the market only once before. Thirty-seven years ago, the current owners bought the home from the original owner-builder who wanted to design and build the ideal family home, with a separate zone for the kids at the other end of the house from the master suite.

There’s also plenty of storage – which every family needs – with that wise original owner-builder making sure the vacant space underneath the home is easily accessible with a spacious built-in storage room measuring 4.4 metres by 3.8 metres. There is a powder room at the back of the double garage and as the garage is at the rear of the home, this will be handy for kids playing outside in the generous landscaped backyard. The double garage also has storage cupboards at the rear for tools and garden implements.

The double garage is accessible through full-length gates, which provide both security and an ideal way of keeping the family dog safely inside the yard. There is plenty of paved area to allow for manoeuvering cars, and at the front of the home, paving has been used to provide guest parking.

There are two more bathrooms upstairs, the ensuite in the master bedroom and the family bathroom. The family bathroom has been nicely updated, with large-format tiles, floor-to-ceiling tiles and a full-length family bath. The master bedroom has built-in robes and a lovely aspect looking out onto the front garden. The master is a very large room, with an ensuite which has also been fully updated.

Driveway and exterior

There are plenty of sunny alfresco areas around the home.

The alfresco options at the home include a wide deck, and a patio sitting in the mature and manicured garden which has an automatic irrigation system. The kitchen is large enough to accommodate a family dining table, but there is a separate dining room, too. The living room will accommodate the whole family, and a separate rumpus room in the ‘kid’ zone ensures there is space for toys and space for grown-ups.

McGrath Sales Agent Jennifer Ward said the property is ideally suited to families and outdoor entertaining.

“With views over Woden Valley, this single level brick family home is designed for outdoor entertaining,” said Ms Ward.

“It’s set on a peaceful cul-de-sac, it’s a short walk to Mount Taylor Nature Reserve, local schools and shops, and has everything a family might need,” she said. “And, it’s close to so many schools, and the Woden Town Centre is so handy, it’s an easy commute by public transport to the city.”

The home has evaporative cooling and ducted gas heating, and the Pearce shops are a 10-minute walk away.
