It’s important to choose wisely when you’re thinking of downsizing. Luckily, the choice couldn’t be any easier with this bright, modern home in Hughes.

This brand new dwelling on 5 Birdwood Street, Hughes sits proudly on a large dual occupancy block and is on the market for $1.2 million. The home comprises four bedrooms and two bathrooms including an ensuite and makes the most of the space allotted through the striking use of high, raked ceilings.

Close to the action. The home is a short distance from Woden Town Centre.

Jonathan Charles from Independent Property Group says the home is excellent value for its location and suburban tranquillity, and potential buyers will be struck by how much is at your fingertips.

“It’s a beautiful single level dwelling, low maintenance and positioned right in the middle of the Woden district. It’s close to the Hospital and Woden Plaza, close to the arterial roads and close to walking trails – and right near the golf course. It’s really incredible value for what you get, and the value for money for a brand new home is remarkable,” he says.

Jonathan emphasised that the home is a wonderful statement in the highly sought-after suburb of Hughes. “[I really love the] informal and formal living areas. It’s such a large block, but because it’s a dual occupancy, you’re looking at 200 square metres of living area. So that means it is perfect for a family, or suitable for someone downsizing from a larger block,” he says.

Spacious living. Enjoy maximum indoor living space with a modern feel.

If you’ve grown tired of home maintenance, then this home is perfect. There is little to maintain in the brand new interior and exterior, and the yard is much smaller than what it was previously, making it a more manageable option for those less inclined to exercise their green thumb.

Jonathan provides some insights on the property to emphasise the unique opportunity that’s in front of potential buyers. “The land was sold last year and a brand new dwelling was built by a local private builder, specialising in boutique builds,” he says, “There’s a property behind it, as the previous dwelling was a Mr Fluffy block that has been repurposed into two distinct properties. The dual occupancy block is extremely large, now it has two separate dwellings entirely, and two separate entrances, away from one another,” he says.

With kitchens as nice as this, who needs a butler’s pantry? Well, you get one anyway!

The high ceilings accentuate beautiful, naturally lit living areas adjacent to the designer kitchen with its stone benches. You’re treated to a butler’s pantry and instant hot water system, hardwood timber floors and a covered alfresco area. Double glazing on all the windows and doors contributes to a very respectable 6.7 energy rating and you needn’t be uncomfortable at any point, with fully ducted, reverse cycle heating and cooling.

Jonathan notes the interest in the property has been strong so far and expects it to increase as word gets around for this great value sale. “The interest has been very, very good. Lots of people are looking at downsizing, and appreciating the value you get from this house in Hughes,” he says.

Use the covered alfresco any time of the year for entertaining.
