Come and explore this stunning four-bedroom, two-bathroom Dickson home, known as the ‘Garden on the Corner’.
With gorgeous, well-maintained gardens that immediately catch your eye and a large 768 sqm block that will amaze entertainers and families looking to upsize, 45 Marsden Street is one of the most iconic homes in the suburb.
LJ Hooker real estate agent Ryan Hedley said the secluded home doesn’t fail to impress with its beautiful gardens, enormous living spaces, endless opportunities and features made for entertaining.
“This corner-block home is well landscaped and manicured. The hedging that surrounds it just complements the grand design of the house as well,” Ryan said.
“The moment you enter the house, you are torn between two living areas – you have a smaller family room to your right that’s overlooked by the kitchen and the dining area, which is really well complemented by a lovely private outdoor courtyard, and then you’ve got another large living area on your left-hand side that’s quite spacious with beautiful views out to the greenery that surrounds the house.
“Its colour palette and design is also really appealing to people as there’s a nice contrast of green cabinetry and red stone benchtops, and the white carpeting throughout the house makes it feel clean and sharp.”
When you walk into the open-living spaces of the north-facing home, you’ll be greeted by two large lounge rooms.
“The sun beams right into the family home,” Ryan said.
“It’s inviting to the owner as they can relax in the warmth, curl up with a good book in the sun, or have friends over.
“There’s also ample storage throughout the home, underfloor heating and a split cooling and heating system.”
Ryan said the large kitchen features a beautiful stone benchtop and gas cooking.
“It is well-lit with natural light and features a gorgeous contrast of colour,” he said.
“The bench top is very functional and open and leads into a huge walk-in pantry.”
The bedrooms are large and well-served – especially the main bedroom.
“The enormous main bedroom is complemented by a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with a spa bath,” Ryan said.
“There’s also a landing at the top of the stairs, which provides the perfect sitting area for the kids.
“Traditionally, this is a four-bedroom home, but one of the bedrooms has been converted into a home office.”
The remainder of the bedrooms are located on the lower level of the home.
Ryan said the home had two bathrooms.
“The upstairs bathroom, which is also the ensuite, is quite large,” he said.
“It’s got that 2000s retro style and features a huge spa bath. The second bathroom downstairs has a bathtub.
“It’s perfect if you have younger kids or multigenerational families living here as the bathrooms and bedrooms are divided and the spaces can be shared.”
Outside, entertainers are spoilt for choice, especially with courtyards.
“You’ve got a vast entertaining courtyard to the front of the home, and then you’ve got a private courtyard off the dining and kitchen area – it would be ideal for reading a book or having a coffee outside,” Ryan said.
“Moving on from the entertainer’s courtyard, you’ve got grass and a bit of a veggie garden around the corner as well.
“While it is easy care and low maintenance, there’s definitely enough greenery around as well.”
Additionally, the home has solar electricity, solar hot water, a double remote garage with a workspace and rear shed, an automatic irrigation system front yard and side parking for a caravan or boat.
The final feature? The location!
“It’s set in one of the best locations in Canberra,” Ryan said.
“Marsden Street is one of the most beautiful streets – it’s walking distance to Dickson shops, it’s close to the city and you’re obviously in sort of a Goldilocks zone for school catchment areas, in terms of being so close to Lyneham High School and North Ainslie Primary School.
“Although the location is attractive, I think the way this house stands out in the street with its gorgeous treeline canopy and gorgeous landscaped gardens gives it its wow factor.”
The ‘Garden on the Corner’ will be open for inspection on Saturday, 5 November, at 11:30 am, and will be auctioned on Saturday, 26 November, from 11:30 am to 12 pm.
