Every once in a while, a property hits the market that is a true masterpiece. 24 Numiari Street, Bonner, is such a property.
It’s not just this near-new home itself that’s so compelling, it’s the location, with picturesque views over rolling hills and the Gungahlin district and the stunning sunsets.
Multiple award-winning architect, Jefferson Godfrey, designed this home, opting for a flexible design, and Scandinavian influences, and celebrating natural light and easy living for a large or growing family.
“This custom-designed and custom-built house is located adjacent a hilltop reserve on a quiet loop street,” says Jonathan Irwin, of Irwin Property. “It was carefully positioned on the site to take full advantage of the location and has been built to the highest standards with excellent craftmanship.”
“The entry into the home is breathtaking with a large feature wall created with a stacked stone effect which gives a rustic feel offsetting the other modern elements,” says Jonathan.
Three separate and spacious living areas (218.9sqm total internal living), plus study nook, accommodate every need. The sunken lounge area is ideal for snuggling up with the kids, the rumpus/retreat area ideal for a parents-only zone or work space and the family room/meals area, connected to the kitchen, forms the heart of the home.
The open-concept kitchen flows seamlessly into the family room/meals area, which in turns leads to a covered alfresco entertaining area.
“This house has been designed to be bright, beautiful and functional and the kitchen is no exception,” says Jonathan. “It includes 40 mm stone bench tops and white subway tile splashbacks. Strategically placed Blackbutt timber shelving is another inspirational design feature.”
The top-quality Bosch appliances include a 900mm freestanding gas oven, a dishwasher and large range hood. Two large corner windows at bench height seamlessly link the space with the alfresco area. The kitchen offers ample storage space, with soft closing cabinetry.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a large butler’s pantry and laundry, also with stone benches and plenty of storage.
The private and spacious master suite features a large walk-in robe plus a large, contemporary ensuite with twin vanity, frameless shower, waterfall showerhead and convenient laundry chute. The other four bedrooms are a good size, and all enjoy large windows.
The main bathroom features a large vanity, a freestanding bath, a frameless shower and large frosted window. A third toilet is on the main floor.
This home is an entertainer’s delight with the covered alfresco entertaining area (27.1 sqm) featuring a large tri-fold door to family room and built-in barbecue and sink. Behind this area is a 25sqm wooden deck, also with fabulous views.
“This unique house must be seen,” says Jonathan. “It has so much to offer than what appears at first glance. One of the more rare features is the 42m2 sub-floor area with light and power. It’s the size of a studio apartment and lends itself to so many uses. To have that amount of internal storage is not only handy, it’s highly unusual for the area.”
Other features of this highly liveable home include a Hills Home Hub, video intercom, USB/data ports and LED lighting. Warmtech programmable under-tile heating are installed in several areas including the kitchen, meals area, main bathroom and ensuite.
24 Numiari Street has double glazed windows throughout and a Daikin reverse cycle split system air conditioning. Energy efficiency (EER 5) is supported with insulation to internal and external walls. The home has a 4,000-litre water tank with rain tank and pump.
The large double garage has additional built-in storage.
Location is everything with this property. The local shops are within easy walking distance, as is a sports field and Bonner Primary School. The adjacent Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve is the ideal spot to go bushwalking and wildlife spotting.
The Gungahlin CBD is only 4.3 kilometres away, providing full shopping amenities, as well as medical facilities and access to the light rail station. The CBD is alive with restaurants and cafes.
Other educational facilities within easy reach are the Burgmann Anglican School, Gungahlin High School and Gungahlin College.
