Tucked into a cul-de-sac backing a reserve, 8 Cooling Place in Florey has been expertly transformed into the ultimate entertainer, where every corner is a backdrop to lasting memories.

The comprehensive renovation and extension, completed over several years to evolve with the growing family within, was engineered to ensure the entire block could be enjoyed year-round.

“This home is, first and foremost, a marvel of practicality and functionality, meeting all the criteria of an ideal family home. Then, without gimmick, the owners have taken it to the next level,” selling agent Nick Paine from Luton Properties says.

“It’s now something extraordinary, and I expect the family who snaps it up will want to be there long term.”

The north-facing backyard is the pinnacle of a home rich with drawcards.

Featuring a sparkling heated mineral self-cleaning pool complemented by an outdoor shower, a pizza oven, a fire pit, an integrated kitchen/barbecue and a three-point basketball court, you’re spoiled for choice.

“It would be a tough gig going from the pool to grab a cocktail and then lounging in the sunshine,” Nick laughs.

“The best thing about it is that through clever design and the addition of heaters, the space can be enjoyed even in the height of winter.

“You’ll find yourself drawn outside and it feels like an event every time you come home.”

Elsewhere outside is a crisp green lawn with space to kick a ball, a charming cubby house and a quieter covered lounging nook that beckons you, a book, and a glass of wine.

Completing the outside are landscaped yard and irrigated gardens, 2.1-metre Colorbond fencing for ultimate privacy and a 7 m x 6 m Colorbond shed providing plenty of storage.

This feast of outdoor spaces flows seamlessly inside, where the luxury continues.

The heart of the home is the deluxe stone island kitchen. Complete with premium Australian appliances, including an integrated microwave, induction cooktop and filtered hot water system and complemented by a large butler’s pantry/laundry, it’s a joy for the home chef.

Of the four generous bedrooms, three are appointed with custom built-in wardrobes. The master suite features a deluxe ensuite with a boutique-style walk-in wardrobe and access to the backyard.

Year-round comfort is guaranteed thanks to under-tile, in-slab floor heating and ducted reverse-cycle heating and cooling.

Other valuable features include a CCTV security system, intercom system, 8.9 kW solar panel system, solar hot water system, double remote garage, an in-built and zoned surround sound system and the latest lighting innovations.

“There are little conveniences and details throughout the home that you never knew you needed, but they add richness to the lifestyle of this home,” Nick says.

“The attention to detail in this place is next level.”

Located within a seven-minute walk of the local shops and Florey Primary School and a six-minute drive of Belconnen Town Centre and the Westfield, this home offers all the conveniences this sought-after suburb provides.

“There’s a wonderful community here, including the business community,” Nick says. “The current owners have loved living here, and the new ones will, too.”

8 Cooling Place in Florey is open for inspection on Tuesday, 2 April, from 5 pm to 5:30 pm and goes to auction on Saturday, 20 April, at 9 am. For more information, contact selling agent Peter White from Luton on 0421 794 404 and make sure to check out all the latest listings on Zango.
