Garran is one of Canberra’s most sought-after suburbs, and for a busy family wanting to move straight in, 59 Curlewis Crescent is a great option.

The home needs no extensions or renovations and has been tastefully and elegantly updated and extended. It has a well-established garden with a saltwater inground swimming pool. It is close to schools, the hospital, local shops and the Woden shopping precinct, and is the perfect location for quiet family living.

There are three bathrooms, four bedrooms and a room downstairs which could be used as a fifth bedroom or office space for home-based work. The saltwater pool provides great outdoor activities for kids of all ages, in an immaculate and obviously well-tended and well-loved garden. And that’s before you get to the separate grassed area for playground equipment or pets, ensuring visually beautiful and practical outdoor living in summer for the entire family (including the furry ones).

Outdoor living and a pool

Ray White agent Alec Brown says the home has been extended and renovated tastefully to provide space and entertainment for families.

“It’s a family home that grew with the people who own it, and it will really suit a family of any size with kids at any age,” he said. “A pool is a great family activity that everyone can enjoy, and the garden is actually quite easy to look after although you can tell a lot of love and thought has gone into it.

“There’s nothing that needs to be done, apart from moving in and enjoying the lifestyle and the location,” he said.

The kitchen and bathrooms have been tastefully updated, and the floor plan changed to open plan combined with formal lounge and dining areas. Plantation shutters in the kitchen, dining and master bedroom complement the hardwood floors and the neutral colour scheme.

Downstairs, access to the pool and outdoor living area is through the office area, providing good visibility to the pool for working parents with children wanting a swim.

The 1960s double brick home with later brick veneer extensions is every parent’s dream. One entire end of the home is zoned for adults, featuring a quiet reading room, a parent’s retreat, and the master bedroom. The master bedroom’s ensuite is fully updated, and the bedroom has plantation shutters and a ceiling fan. At the opposite end of the home, there are three bedrooms with one which was formerly the master suite including a second ensuite which would make an ideal guest room.

The garden is serviced by automated sprinkler systems keeping the lawns green and plants watered. There’s a large rainwater tank with a pump, and the home has ducted gas heating, overhead fans in the bedrooms to circulate the air, and a back-to-base alarm system.

The home will be auctioned on Thursday, 9 April at 6:00 pm, onsite and online for remote bidders wanting to participate.
