The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home at 44 Rapanea Street in Rivett has a subtle street presence surrounded by lush gardens. While its outward presentation may be modest, the home is graciously suited to a family, with plenty of living space and a preciously private garden and pool in the heart of Rivett.

The home’s floorplan is well-suited to family life, with the master bedroom at one end of the home with an updated ensuite, built-in robes and views onto the well-tended cottage gardens. Three bedrooms are light and bright, all with built-in robes, and a study has separate external access to the home. The family bathroom has been updated and has a full-length bath, while the toilet is separate from the family bathroom.

The living areas of the home are indoors, outdoors and undercover, providing a range of beautiful spaces to gather to catch up and dine or chat with friends and family. A very large family lounge room with built-in cabinetry and a gas fireplace creates a warm and inviting open space, while the open plan kitchen/dining room is updated and bright, with plenty of room for the entire family at Christmas.

Sun lovers will be delighted with the enclosed sunroom on one side of the home, ideal for soaking up some winter rays, and the covered deck which provides a beautiful outdoor alfresco dining or living area.

Walking out to the back yard through the cottage garden, wisteria vines and peony roses, the pool area is fenced, and clustered around the paved area are bushes that give privacy. The pool has a cabana and it’s the perfect place for a lazy summer afternoon with a cold drink in one hand and a book in the other.

The home is set on a battle-axe block, providing further privacy, and has a two-car enclosed garage.

LJ Hooker sales agent Sandra Masters says the home is perfect for building family memories and would suit an active family looking for separate living and playing zones for adults and kids.

“This is such a beautiful home,” said Ms Masters. “The garden has separate zones and a lot of privacy. It’s a large block, and there’s plenty of room for pets and kids, and the home itself is perfect for a family wanting a great lifestyle.

“The home has a lovely vibe, and it is on the market for the first time in 37 years,” said Ms Masters, “and it’s so convenient to Woden and Cooleman Court, schools and plenty of green parks and ovals, including the Arawang netball courts.”

It is also situated within a five-minute drive of several primary schools, and Stromlo High School is a 20-minute walk.

The home will be sold by digital auction on Wednesday, 2 December at 6:00 pm.
