A smart-looking, modern, north-facing family home, with a suite of amazing features and close to Woden and bushland, is available in Lyons.

This four-bedroom, two-bathroom home is outstanding in many ways, with its smart-looking exterior and interior design and position on the high side of the elevated cul-de-sac with a nature reserve at the end.

3 Huon Place offers a functional layout providing for maximum comfort. “It’s a relaxed home designed for easy family living and has two wings making the layout highly functional,” says Mark Wolens, Principal, Independent Property Group, Woden and Weston Creek.

“Living areas are bright with some featuring smart-looking clerestory windows, providing additional wall space. The same applies to the large media room in which the family will spend hours gathering to watch favourite TV shows and movies,” says Mark. “The media room also features block-out blinds and effective lighting.”

Living areas are bright and inviting.

The huge family room opens up to a comfortable alfresco dining area, through double sliding doors. The upstairs rumpus room is a child’s delight. It’s a true retreat with access to a balcony.

Families will love the impressive, state-of-the art, open-concept kitchen with its stone island bench and breakfast bar large enough to seat four. The colour palette in the kitchen is light and airy and is complemented by large stone tiles in a neutral tone. Quality appliances include a Baumatic oven with five-burner gas hot plates, a stainless-steel canopy range hood and Miele dishwasher. There’s plenty of storage and counterspace.

“Outdoor entertaining areas include a delightful sheltered alfresco dining area, easily accessible from the kitchen and oversized family room through large sliding glass doors,” says Mark.

The large main bedroom—segregated from the other bedrooms near the study for added privacy—has a walk-in robe and an exceptional ensuite with a segregated shower and toilet.

The state-of-the-art kitchen is light and airy.

The main bathroom features a generous, glass-enclosed shower, a deep bathtub, two modern, square sinks with quality fixtures, a massive mirror, plenty of storage space and windows offering heaps of light and fresh air. Tastic heater and lights are featured in both bathrooms.

Three double-sized bedrooms feature built-in robes, ceiling fans for effective air circulation and blinds. All bedrooms are equipped with Internet cabling.

The separate study is perfect for those wanting to operate a separate home office, with exterior access through sliding doors.

This inviting home features large, separate living areas.

Other features of this inviting home include a powder room on the main floor and a light and airy laundry room. This home is made all-the-more comfortable with instantaneous hot water, ducted gas and evaporative cooling, NBN and Foxtel connections. The home is secure with a back-to-base alarm system. The garage door has a remote.

The house is on a quiet street close to the 66-hectare Oakey Hill nature reserve, popular for walking, bird watching, mountain biking and horse riding. “Lyons has always been popular but is becoming increasingly so,” says Mark. “Its appeal is growing, especially with the revitalisation of Woden, including the new bar and restaurant precinct being built.”

The large, spacious bathroom has all the modern conveniences.

3 Huon Place is on a 947-square metre lot and has fabulous street appeal, with professionally landscaped grounds, including mature trees, flowering crab apple trees and high hedging for privacy and ample shading. The home was built in 2011. Architectural lines are clean and the rendered exterior is painted in cool, comforting, contemporary colours. Natural travertine pavers and sandstone retaining walls add character and charm. The two-car garage has plenty of room for additional storage.

Other features include a convenient garden shed, a two-zone watering system, an 11,250-litre water tank, three-phase power, Colorbond fencing and Colorbond roofing.

The home is within walking distance to any amenity you could imagine, including those in the Woden Town Centre. Lyons is an exceptionally sought-after Canberra suburb and additional value will be added once the light rail service is complete.

Schools are close by, including Curtin Primary School, Alfred Deakin High School and Canberra College. The Australian National University is only 7.5 kilometres away. Other nearby amenities include the Canberra Hospital, Phillip Post Office and Woden Plaza.

Fabulous street appeal.
