If you’re in any doubt about the grand proportions of the townhouse at 7/40 Culgoa Crescent in O’Malley, look no further than its master bedroom.

“I’ve seen one-bedroom apartments that are smaller than the master bedroom,” LJ Hooker Tuggeranong principal Andrew Curren remarks.

“Even with a king-sized bed in there, you could also have a nice little sitting area or possibly even a study nook. It’s that large.”

Throw in a walk-in robe and an ensuite with a spa bath, both of similarly generous proportions, and you could be tempted not to explore the entire 300 square metres of living space.

Private access to a sunny north-facing deck instantly connects the master suite’s occupants with the outdoor entertaining hub and its views over leafy O’Malley and north across Woden.

Post-morning coffee on the deck, the clever floor plan takes guests into the open-plan family room and adjoining chef’s kitchen with premium Bosch appliances and granite bench tops.

The adjacent formal lounge and dining space features lofty ceilings and an expanse of windows taking in more sweeping views, courtesy of the home’s position on the hills of O’Malley.

“It’s elevated above some of the other properties in the complex, and all of the living areas are bathed in northerly sunlight, which is perfect for winters in Canberra,” Andrew says.

Completing the home’s upper level are a family bathroom with a separate bath and shower, a second bathroom and three double bedrooms, two of which include built-in robes.

Downstairs, the lower level features two more versatile living spaces with private entries and access to a covered paved patio with room for an outdoor setting and barbecue.

“One could be a media room and one could be a rumpus room, but alternatively, they could be bedrooms five and six if you needed extra bedrooms,” Andrew explains.

“Not every family is going to need six bedrooms, so you end up with four big living areas, or you can have two big living areas and six bedrooms instead.”

No matter where you are in the home, you also enjoy ducted and zoned heating and cooling for year-round comfort and new paint, carpet and blinds.

Andrew says other advantages to the townhouse include a uniquely social community of neighbours in its boutique complex and the large yet low maintenance 840 square metre block.

“To find a house of this proportion on a normal residential block, you’d probably be looking for a 1000 square metre-plus block, and what comes with that is a much bigger backyard and lots more maintenance,” Andrew explains.

A nature reserve and walking trails located directly behind the property await those wanting to explore beyond the home’s irrigated and landscaped gardens.

“This might suit executives who work long hours and don’t have as much time to spend in the garden but who don’t want to compromise on a smaller internal living space,” Andrew explains.

He suggests the home could also suit hospital or embassy staff, given its central location only a stone’s throw away from Canberra Hospital, Woden town centre and several embassies.

The townhouse at 7/40 Culgoa Crescent in O’Malley will go to auction on Saturday, 16 September, from 10 am.
