It can be obvious when a home has been inhabited by a family building happy memories. The three-bedroom, one-bathroom home at 28 Carlile Street in Evatt has clearly provided many memorable family moments.

The perfect size to create a first family home, set on a large 948 square metre block, the home has delightfully curated gardens, shady established trees, and a red-brick paved driveway leading to the carport on the side of the home.

The entrance to the home is through the sunny, north-facing open plan lounge, dining, kitchen, and family room, with large floor-to-ceiling windows at the front of the lounge room to take advantage of the bright aspect in the mornings.

There is plenty of room for a family to be comfortable, providing space for both children and adults in the living areas, while leaving plenty of room for dining either indoors or out.

The kitchen, family and dining have terracotta tiled floors, and the lounge and master bedroom have engineered timber flooring, creating a subtle change in the ambience in the transition from one zone to another.

The kitchen has a built-in dishwasher, stainless steel oven and rangehood, a gas cooktop, and overlooks the paved alfresco dining area outside. The back of the home has a low wraparound deck and a dining zone set under a pergola with shade sails to ensure perfect dining conditions at any time of day.

Railway sleepers have been used to build garden retaining walls and a stairway on the gently sloping block, creating a garden with two levels and clearly defined zones. The cool green lawn provides a leafy view for the alfresco dining area and a practical play zone for children or pets. A third zone at the very top of the garden has been covered in river stones and will be the perfect spot for a firepit.

The master bedroom has two enormous built-in robes and plenty of space. It occupies the rear of the home with access to the back deck and garden through sliding doors.

An overhead fan provides air circulation, pale grey paint on the walls combined with the engineered timber flooring and timber window frames produce a harmonious colour palette with an outlook onto the lush green gardens.

Bedroom two is large and has built-in robes, while bedroom three is a little smaller and would make an ideal home office/guest room. The bathroom has a shower and a luxurious spa bath that will soothe away your troubles. The home has a separate toilet for convenience.

Home.byHolly sales agent Cris O’Brien said the home has many features that will suit a small family or a downsizing couple. The location in Evatt places it close to primary and secondary schools, shops and parks, including Ginninderra Creek and Lake Ginninderra.

“This home is very conveniently located for families, downsizers, or professional couples being close to shops and schools, but it would also be perfect for a first-home buyer looking for an established home,” Ms OBrien said.

“This part of Evatt is surrounded by parkland, so there are plenty of places to exercise out in the open and it’s an easy three-minute drive to the nearby medical centre and shops at Florey.

“The home has a double carport and single car garage, a garden shed for all the tools you might need, and the gardens are delightful,” she said.

The home has ducted gas heating and a split system air conditioner in the living room, and a paved utility area to the side of the home.

The home will be auctioned at 4:45 pm on Wednesday, 31 March.
