You can walk to the local shops, school, adventure playground and the Point Hut Pond park and picnic area from this lovely home at 8 McCarten Place in Gordon.

But with stunning views from your front door to the Brindabellas and a very comfortable four-bedroom, two-bathroom home with a great backyard, you may never want to leave the house.

Colin McIntyre from McIntyre Property said the McCarten Place home is also in a great location.

“It’s in a beautiful part of the town, and it’s in a great neighbourhood with good neighbours,” said the agent, who noted he also happened to live in the area

“This house is at the end of a cul-de-sac so it has one home beside it and another behind it, and on the other side is a greenbelt.”

“There’s nice undulation in most areas of Gordon, so you get mountain views from most of the homes.”

The property features an 18-panel solar system and a range of climate control options, including ducted gas heating, evaporative cooling and ceiling fans.

The bedrooms are generous, with the main bedroom thoughtfully segregated at the front of the home.

“The house has been well maintained and it will be a great second home for somebody or someone looking to retire to single-level living without giving up the luxuries of a nice home,” said Colin.

The home is pet-friendly and has high fences for privacy. The garden is low care with a chook pen in place and a raised space ready for filling with flowers and plants of your choice.

“The undercover area is well-shaded and is framed by wisteria. It sits on the eastern side of the house so it is great for entertaining on an afternoon in summer out of the western sun.”

Special touches include a pyrolytic self-cleaning wall oven, new hybrid flooring, and a recently installed 100 per cent wool carpet.

“With the kitchen located in the heart of the home, you will be able to watch the children playing in the great-sized family room.”

Colin said Gordon was a great place to raise a family.

“It’s a family-friendly area and it has evolved over the years. It used to be ‘nappy valley’, but that was 25 years ago, and now all of those kids have grown up and moved away, and we are starting to see them move back with their own families.

“Now it’s their kids who will grow up in the area and probably get involved with the same sporting clubs and go to the same schools.”

He said the area in Gordon was one of the original suburbs in the Lanyon Valley to be developed.

“It had some good covenants in place when it was being built in regards to each dwelling required to have a tile roof and a brick garage – there were no tin or metal garages allowed. This has all created a high standard of consistent living throughout the suburb.”

This property has a double garage, providing internal access to the home and additional off-street parking for your convenience. Public transport is just a stone’s throw away.
