If you’re looking for a home that isn’t an apartment, but is low-maintenance and offers executive style, make a note of 2/19 Port Arthur Street in Lyons.

This is dual occupancy, but there are no adjoining walls as the two properties sit side by side on a large block. There is a small yard, with room enough for a small shed, the laundry and a paved area for a barbeque. The build is new, clean and environmentally efficient with an EER of 6, has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and a walk-in pantry off the open plan kitchen. It is filled with light in the family/dining space thanks to three massive skylights.

The property is brand new, finished only this year, and would suit a family, or a professional couple wanting a home close to Woden Town Centre (it’s an easy 10-minute walk away).

A remote-controlled double garage will provide security as you step into your keyless-entry home through either the front door or the double garage. The front door is equipped with a video intercom and a security alarm, and the home has a security alarm built-in for those who are safety conscious.

Kitchen and living areas

Light flows from three massive skylights.

Walking into the home through the entry room, which has room for your umbrella and wet shoes, the hallway leads you to a light, bright kitchen and dining zone, with a living area, all open plan.

Living/dining area

Skylights and vaulted ceilings make the living/dining area bright.

A walk-in pantry with plenty of storage room is essential to ensure there’s always something cooking on the induction cooktop, and there is plenty of room to prepare meals on the island bench which has a double sink in the centre, while the long benches on either side of the cooktop have space for your essential bench-top appliances.

Fitted with stainless steel appliances, the white and black kitchen colour scheme is on-trend and balanced with the stainless steel appliances and a beautiful floating wooden floor.

The home is split level, with the spacious living and dining area connected to the outdoors by floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open into the courtyard. It will be cool in the hot summer and warm in the Canberra winter thanks to reverse-cycle ducted heating and cooling, and plenty of hot water from a Rinnai gas instantaneous hot water system.

The master bedroom is located centrally in the home and features a walk-in robe and an ensuite with modern fittings, and clean white floor-to-ceiling tiles on the walls. Plush carpet underfoot quietens the atmosphere.

Bedrooms one and two have wardrobes built-in with mirrored doors. The second bedroom is spacious, the third a little smaller, but would make a great single bedroom or home office or study.

Easy care landscaped garden

The gardens are landscaped and easy care so they won’t need a great deal of time or maintenance. They’re surrounded by Colourbond fencing.
