Built on the last available block for development in the Mary Reid Estate in Yass, 42 Nicholls Drive is up for sale.
It’s a brand new build, as the vendor is the developer who built other homes on the Mary Reid Estate, and decided that rather than sell the undeveloped land, he would build a family home on the block and sell it as a house and land package.
The stylish family home has four-bedrooms and two-bathrooms on an 800 square metre block. That’s one enormous backyard, big enough for a pool, playground, dog run, an orchard of fruit trees or an enormous shed. Or a combination thereof.
The home has a two-car garage with enough access at the side of the house to allow vehicles through if the big shed is on your agenda. The sale price includes a $10,000 rebate for landscaping or window furnishings and looks out onto a rural landscape of gentle hills surrounding the area.
McIntyre Property Agent Terry Cooper says the property is extraordinarily good value for money.
“If it was in Canberra,” says Cooper, “it would cost $900,000 for an equivalent four-bedroom, two-bathroom home, without the 800 square metres of land. And it’s a brand new build with heaps of room in the backyard to do just about anything you like.
“This is the sort of family home we all want to give our children, but they’re hard to find with a big backyard.”
Less than 100 metres away is a children’s playground where the local wildlife takes care of mowing the grass in the early mornings, and Yass CBD is only 1 km away. Commuting to Canberra is faster than you think. The drive to Gungahlin takes 30 minutes and it’s just 45 minutes to the Canberra CBD.
The home won’t need updating for many years to come. The kitchen is equipped with 900 mm appliances, tastefully white with stone benchtops, and timber flooring which unites the kitchen, dining and living areas.
The master suite has a walk-in robe, ensuite and is generous in size, with plenty of room for a reading nook or a quiet retreat area. All bedrooms are carpeted, giving a feeling of quiet and warmth.
There are two living areas, with the kitchen-diner extending to an undercover deck. Polished wooden flooring extends through the living area and kitchen, while the laundry and bathrooms feature large tiles on both the floor and walls. The storage area under the house is enormous and would be ideal for a wine cellar.
Your comfort is assured in all seasons with zoned reverse-cycle heating and air conditioning throughout.
This lovely family home, situated on a hill for unobstructed views of the countryside, is open for inspection on Saturday, 8 March from 10:00 am to 10:30 am.
