Space, flow and a beautiful connection with manicured lush green gardens are major drawcards of this stunning home at 17 O’Rourke Street, Weetangera, a premium inner Belconnen suburb.

This dream home has it all and the love that has gone into perfecting every inch of space is evident from the minute the front door is opened.

Immaculate through and through, the five-bedroom, two-ensuite, 210 square metre family home is flooded with light and all living areas face North with floor-to-ceiling windows and pretty aspects.

Cris O’Brien, sales agent from home.byholly, says it’s the type of house people walk into and instantly feel at home.

Family living and entertainment

This home has been designed for family living and entertainment.

“It’s been designed for family living and entertainment. The living room features glass doors on either side connecting seamlessly to the outdoors,” says Cris. “The separate sitting room is an added bonus and the freshly sanded and polished timber floors add warmth and charm.”

A gorgeous gourmet open-plan kitchen is an inviting space for friends and family to gather. Its many features include stylish stone benchtops, quality appliances, gas cooking, large windows, soft close drawers and plenty of storage.

All bedrooms are generously sized and each has stunning views of the garden, The master has a quality custom-designed walk-in robe. Another bedroom has a newly renovated ensuite, three have built-in robes and the fifth bedroom provides dual access from the master bedroom and living room.

The gourmet open-plan kitchen is an inviting space.

Also newly renovated is the separate laundry, with ample storage and back yard access, and the main bathroom with separate toilet.

Freshly painted throughout in neutral tones, the home has evaporative cooling and ducted gas heating for year-round comfort. It features brand new pergolas, automatic electric awnings, solar panels and a large water tank.

“The 1,192 sqm block is on a quiet leafy tree-lined street,” says Cris. “The irrigated garden, incorporating natives, is simply magnificent and has been designed to maximise every inch of space. There are so many nooks and crannies to enjoy and the main garden area flows into an organic garden towards the back, which incorporates a kitchen garden, vegetable patch, fruit trees and a glass house.”

Large bedroom

All bedrooms have stunning views of the garden.

A second covered outdoor space with inbuilt benches is another spot to sit and relax. It flows through to a stunning Japanese-inspired garden.

Hot summer days will be cooled down with a dip in the sparkling pool, surrounded by paving and protected by a shade cloth.

The home features a two-car automatic garage and has fabulous street appeal.

Outdoor area

The garden and outdoor entertaining areas are special spaces.

Weetangera is close to the full range of amenities Belconnen is so well known for, including cafes, restaurants, and the shops at Westfield Belconnen and surrounds. The prime location is only minutes from auxiliary roads and public transport.

Nature lovers will connect with surrounding national parks and reserves, including Mount Painter, Black Mountain Reserve and Pinnacle Nature Reserve. Excellent schools in the area include Weetangera Primary, which is just a short walk away. The home is only 10 minutes from the city and has an EER of 1.5.
