Nestled within parkland and with jaw-dropping, elevated views of the Brindabellas, Canberra living doesn’t get more quintessential than this perfectly positioned McKellar icon.
Looking at 22 Vagabond Crescent from the street, it’s hard not to be awed by the large front door and pillars, sweeping driveway and immaculately manicured front yard, and this jaw-dropping effect only intensifies as you catch the first sight of the timber flooring upon entry.
In fact, Timothy Road real estate agents Annabelle McInnes and Tim McInnes say the finish is so impeccable it’s hard to tell the home is not brand new.
This stellar owner-built McKellar home looks brand new. 22 Vagabond Cres has five generous bedrooms, designer kitchen, four-car garage and landscape gardens, with next-level quality & finishes. To top it off – views of the Brindabellas. It's being auctioned 24 July by Timothy Road – but definitely see it now at Zango.

“It was actually a builder’s home, and this is obvious from how perfectly it’s been finished, with all those indulgent inclusions that can elevate family living to the next level,” Tim said.
Both Annabelle and Tim explain that the home will suit a family who will thrive in an established, quiet community.
“A large back garden provides the perfect place for the kids to get out and play and, with a park only across the road, it really is that perfect position,” Tim said.
Annabelle added that it is a really nice quiet location, too, and is one of the best homes in Belconnen to have come on the market in the past year.
It’s a home with the potential to really revolutionise how your family lives, and with three distinct living areas and stunning outdoor space, there are plenty of areas to spend catching up on each other’s days and spending quality time with one another.
For Annabelle, these three spaces also provide easy separation between adults and children’s spaces.
As well as an expansive living room and gas fire – perfect to warm hands and hearts on a chilly evening – there’s an informal meals area that melds seamlessly with the garden. Downstairs, a sitting room currently provides a children’s retreat.
Of course, no good family home comes without its heart, and this home’s is the large kitchen, fully kitted out with brand-new Bosch appliances.
Tim did mention that the finishings on this home are above and beyond the usual, and it’s in the breathtaking kitchen that this is evident.
On the practical side, a stone and stainless steel benchtop, copious cupboard space, a butler’s pantry and quality appliances including a double oven and six-burner gas cooktop mean the wildest of culinary experiments can occur with as little fuss as possible.
But if homemade wood-fired pizza is your go-to, you’re covered. There’s an outdoor speciality oven.
As well as eating and playing, a family home needs generous bedrooms. For parents, the master bedroom provides the holy trinity – views, a luxurious ensuite and a walk-through wardrobe.
Kids and guests are more than adequately provided for with four additional bedrooms, all of a generous size. The main bathroom has a suspended vanity and stone benchtop which wouldn’t look amiss in a day spa.
Warmth and comfort have been prioritised with ducted reverse-cycle heating and cooling and double-glazed windows providing the perfect accompaniment to the gas fireplace.
On the practical side, a huge four-car garage with automatic doors and internal access provides room to store your toys or start a new hobby, while a home security system will provide peace of mind.
“It really is a home that has been detailed and dedicated to perfection, and one that will allow your family to celebrate every day of your life together,” Annabelle said.
