The saying in real estate is location, location, location; and the three-bedroom, one-bathroom home at 54 Burn Street in Downer has location in spades.

It is also beautifully renovated, and on an enormous block, 754 square metres of prime, inner-north land. The floor plan is effective and simple and has great potential for adding a sizeable extension, or a granny flat, music studio, or artist’s studio in the enormous yard.

The owners have cleverly maximised the practical use of space in the floorplan, opening the kitchen, dining and living area to light and space, and a lovely shared family area. The kitchen is positioned to take advantage of the open floorplan, and maximise storage space while staying connected with the living/family room.

The renovated kitchen is equipped with an induction cooktop, pyrolytic oven, and soft close drawers, while the bright polished floorboards promise an easy-to-clean environment.

The bedrooms are also freshly painted and neat as a pin, with built-in robes in the master bedroom, and bedroom two.

The bedrooms also have timber floorboards providing a connection to the living area of the home, and are similarly practical when it comes to cleaning, and are consistently neat and tidy throughout the home. The family bathroom has everything you will need and is updated and refreshed, with a frameless walk-in shower and bright white tiling.

The delight of buying a small home on a large block is the potential for the future, whether you are downsizing or looking for a first family home with plenty of room to grow. The potential in this home is enormous, whether you are extending or looking for a foothold in the tightly held inner north housing market.

The windows are tastefully dressed with honeycomb blinds, and the home has an external lock-up garage with power and a workbench. There is also a standalone shed and a chicken coop, which completes the ideal family home.

The home is north facing, which will ensure winter sun lowers the power bills, and the home has reverse-cycle airconditioning, essential in Canberra’s increasingly hot and dry summers.

Home.byHolly principal Holly Komorowski said the home will go to auction on Saturday, 28 November, and will attract buyers looking for a great location, and the potential to expand.

“The home is the perfect one for downsizers, or for a family looking to buy their first home in the inner north,” said Ms Komorowski.

“It’s not often these tightly held large blocks go on the market in this area, and if you take a look at what you can do with extensions or decking, the options to make this your own are literally endless.

“Location is always the first rule of real estate,” said Ms Komorowski, “and this one has location and a large block.”

“It’s the perfect home for Christmas this year, with a yard that’s big enough for the entire family to play cricket in the back yard, and have a barbeque in the Aussie tradition for Christmas lunch,” said Ms Komorowski.

“It’s very close to the Watson and Downer shops, the light rail network and great schools, very handy to the city, and to the light rail.”

The home is a 10-minute walk from Dickson College and a three-minute drive to the nearest primary and pre-schools. Even more conveniently, it is a four-minute drive to the Dickson shops, and only eight minutes away from the National Exhibition Centre, for the farmer’s markets and events at NatEx. Braddon is eight minutes away by car, and the city under 10 minutes by car.
