A fully open plan with an attractive two-storey open void are key features of a bright, airy and modern townhome for sale in the highly sought-after suburb of Garran.

The north-facing, sun-drenched three-bedroom, three-bathroom townhome at 17 Eldridge Crescent (Unit 45) has a new contemporary kitchen with quality finishes and luxury flooring in the main living areas. The private patio is bathed in sunlight and is the perfect place to relax or entertain.

Independent sales agent Grahame O’Brien says the townhomes in the beautiful Bellisand development rarely hit the market, making this a gem of a find.

“The attractive soaring ceilings and unique architectural features make this a stand-out property,” says Grahame. “It impresses the moment you enter.”

The new kitchen, with clean lines throughout, features natural oak and white cupboards, drawers with soft close hinges and quality ceramic tiles from Italy.

A long and deep Caesarstone benchtop with Aris edges offers plenty of highly workable counter space. The kitchen includes a large corner pantry, an additional spacious corner cupboard and generous storage. Three large-tiered drawers (each 105 cm wide) include a cutlery drawer with adjustable partitions. A Hettich IQ pull out conveniently holds oils, spices and more.

All appliances are new, including the AEG oven, AEG ceramic hob, AEG dishwasher, and Fisher & Paykel fridge/freezer. The new Franke stainless steel sink is extra large and the kitchen has two pullout twin-bins (one for recycling). Other attractive features are a built-in bookcase and open shelving above the sink.

New luxury lemon spotted gum flooring has been installed in the living, dining and hall areas – the extra-long vinyl floorboards add warmth and an additional layer of soundproofing.

The home’s three large bathrooms each have full-size showers.

“All bedrooms are a generous size, flooded with natural light through large windows and have views of mature, landscaped gardens,” says Grahame.

The 3.4 x 4.8-metre master bedroom has a walk-in robe, a modern ensuite with spa bath and large shower, and crisp white tiles with grey designer accent tiles, all in excellent condition. The loft-style bedroom (also 3.5 x 4.8 metres) with ensuite overlooks the living room and enjoys views of the outdoors.

The private third bedroom, at the back of the home on the main floor, has double windows overlooking landscaped gardens with easy access to the main bathroom. This bathroom incorporates a space-saving European-style laundry, new Electrolux dryer and good-sized laundry sink.

“All bedrooms are segregated from each other, providing space and privacy for each family member or guests,” says Grahame.

Truly convenient are the enclosed and secure double garages (6 x 4.6 metres) with private internal access into the townhome, one with a deep enclosed storage space.

“Location is everything with this townhome,” says Grahame. “It’s only a two-minute walk to the Garran Shops, Garran Primary School and Garran Oval. It’s an easy walk to Red Hill bushland and public park areas.”

Eldridge Crescent is also only a two-minute walk to the Canberra Hospital, making it a perfect location for those working in the area. Hop in the car and arrive at Woden Town Centre and Westfield Woden Shopping Centre in less than five minutes or to the City in approximately 10 minutes. Other schools in the vicinity include Canberra College and CIT Woden.

The Garran Shops is a true community hub, with an IGA, cafes, bakery, newsagent, post office, dry cleaner, modern pharmacy and medical centre.

Unit 45, 17 Eldridge Cres at Garran is up for auction on Wednesday, 16 September, at 1:00 pm. For more information contact Grahame O’Brien at Independent on 0418 625 437.
