One of Googong’s finest display homes – 62 Aprasia Avenue – is on the market. It has all the trimmings you might expect from a display home, including impressive street appeal, a family-friendly layout and high-quality finishes throughout.
But there’s another thing about this listing that makes it unique: as part of the Googong Display Village terms, 62 Aprasia Avenue has to remain a display home until May 2020.
This makes it ideal for investors, or families who aren’t quite ready to move into their dream family home and are happy to rent back to the builder for a short time.
Justin Taylor from McGrath Estate Agents Gungahlin says it’s a great opportunity to secure a property at today’s value (the asking price is between $835,000 and $895,000), with rental income of around $850 per week until the home is available to live in in 2020. Rental income is negotiable at the point of sale.
“Googong is becoming a popular community, so it’s an appealing area for investors. The single-level design and easy care block mean that it is suitable for more buyers, including busy families with young children and older people,” he says.
“It’s built by a long-time reputable Canberra builder, Optima Designs, and designed by a local architect. The quality of the build is very high.”
He lists the family room and entertaining areas as some of his favourite parts of the house.
“The home has a beautiful sunny family room with high ceilings, and it’s been designed so that the kitchen and family entertaining area is the hub of the house. The spacious floor plan – about 228 square metres of internal living area – is also a highlight,” he says.
For those who love entertaining, there’s also a large alfresco entertaining area with a built-in barbeque.
The light-filled master bedroom – or master retreat as the listing describes it – also includes a custom walk-in wardrobe and designer bathroom.
The remaining three bedrooms at the rear of the house have plenty of space for children of all ages.
If you’re in a position to buy your dream family home, but not quite ready to move in, Justin says this could be the opportunity for you. After all, it’s a thoughtfully-designed, single level home complimented by idyllic outdoor facilities on a child-friendly 545 square metre block.
62 Aprasia Avenue is part of the Googong Display Village, which is open 11 am to 3 pm every Saturday and Sunday. The home can also be viewed by appointment – contact Justin Taylor from McGrath Estate Agents Gungahlin on 0414 701 465.
