This is what Canberra is all about. Quiet suburbia on the edge of open green spaces made up of family homes and quiet gardens.
An extended four-bedroom home, 28 Bragg Street in Hackett, is just such a gem, positioned in a prized and idyllic location directly opposite a park where you can watch the kangaroos graze and the kids play.
As you arrive, you will be immediately taken by the striking street presence and designed gardens of this immaculate home, not to mention the blooming flowers at this time of year.
Home.by holly real estate agent Jenny McReynolds says the current long-term owners hail from the country and clearly wanted to bring some of that with them.
“The gardens have all been re-landscaped to suit their style, and they love the fact they can enjoy them from inside, with a nice outlook from every room.”
The feel of open space was a massive attraction to the owners and the house is laid out to make the most of it, with sprawling windows and living areas.
“It’s a functional family home that just feels good,” Jenny says.
Upon entering, you will be instantly impressed by its warm and inviting feel and the care and attention it has received from its current long-term owners.
Bathed in abundant natural light, this north-facing home has so much to offer with its versatile floor plan and fabulous combination of formal and informal living.
To the front is the spacious main living area. To the back, the glorious combined family and dining room that features high raked ceilings. Both areas connect seamlessly with the renovated kitchen that offers everything for the home chef.
Comfort is taken care of with ducted gas heating throughout, a reverse-cycle split system in the main family room, as well as under-floor insulation to the three bedrooms.
Hardwood timber floors are used throughout (except for the master bedroom), the bathroom and ensuite are both freshly renovated, and each of the bedrooms features built-in wardrobes.
Outdoors is a real treat with an expansive timber deck that allows you to enjoy family gatherings, barbecues or a quiet drink while the children and pets can run around in the enclosed rear garden. There is also a single garage and carport.
As a resident of Hackett, Jenny is qualified to say that Bragg Street has a wonderful sense of community spirit that is immediately evident.
“There are regular events such as ‘Music in the Park’ and community gatherings,” she says.
You will appreciate the benefits of being able to walk to the local shopping centre, cafes, a great choice of schools, the Australian Catholic University, Mount Majura nature reserve and public transport, all within easy reach of the City Centre.
This delightful family home will go to auction online on 2 October.
