To perhaps the new or insular-minded Canberran, when confronted with the suburb name ‘Waramanga’ you might hear the response, ‘where is that again?’

Right in the heart of Weston Creek, if you don’t mind.

The petite, quiet suburb contains some high-quality dwellings like this great townhouse on Damala Street that will raise a few eyebrows on how much value is on offer for a good price, in a suburb on the rise.

Situated at the edge of a quiet townhouse block, the home is a remarkable example of a high-quality property for investors or downsizers that don’t want to sacrifice a suburban lifestyle. Kimberly Kelly from McIntyre Property noted it can be hard to find townhouses like this with such excellent seclusion and privacy. “It’s not a usual complex the way it’s set out. It’s a bit more private, with lots of bushes and shrubbery around that really keep the noise to a minimum,” she says.

The townhouse comes with a semi-covered entertaining area – a lovely hideaway for you and your guests.

The house itself is a welcome and refreshing member of the complex with its fresh interior features placing the home well above its neighbours. “It’s got floating timber floors and is freshly painted plus it’s in a very convenient location,” Kimberly says. Features like this, alongside its proximity to schools and shops, make it an ideal option for a potential investor or small family.

The kitchen is freshly painted and has modern appliances.

Often any attempts at parking within a townhouse complex are met with ‘fend for yourself – first in best dressed’ but not here – you’re treated to a dedicated carport with storage, for ultimate convenience. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home also features a secluded and private outdoor entertaining area where you can enjoy the sunshine in your own private hideaway.

A cosy, light and bright living area to relax and unwind.

The home features built-in robes, a ready-to-go Foxtel connection and gate access to Damala Street – so you can exit and take the dog for a quick walk before settling in next to the wall heater to watch the latest Game of Thrones before bed.

These features are what makes the home such an attractive option for a range of potential buyers, according to Kimberly. “This is a great opportunity for first home buyers, downsizers and investors – it’s been an investment property in the past. There’s another similar place in the complex that is not as good that dropped its price to compete with this one, so the value is definitely there,” she says.

The proof is in the pudding too, with several interested parties already answering the call for interest with their feet. “Yes, interest is definitely high. We had 12 groups come through last week, and we’ve even got an initial offer on the table already,” Kimberley says.

Sounds like potential buyers will need to get in quick to snap this one up.
