While this Googong home is perfect for a large or extended family, it’s also ideally set up for a professional couple wanting to work from home in style.

With six bedrooms, three bathrooms, three living areas and loads of off-street parking, 25 Percival Road at Googong has space for everyone in the family to spread their wings, especially those working remotely.

Above the oversized garage is a huge living space with two bedrooms, a bathroom and a rumpus room complete with a kitchenette and storage cupboard. The zone has a separate entry, creating a private retreat for extended family, guests or professionals.

Sales agent Lou Baldan from Blackshaw Queanbeyan and Jerrabomberra says the segregated space would be perfect for a couple working from home.

“You could have two offices upstairs and your own little cafe space with kitchenette, or even a home gym where you could take a break from the desk,” he said.

“It’s a completely separate space so you could go to work in the ‘office’, then return ‘home’ to the main part of the house at the end of the day.”

Of course, the layout of the home would also accommodate guests, give older teenagers their own space, or provide adult children with somewhere to live and save money while they save for their own home.

“We all know rentals are thin on the ground at the moment, and house prices are through the roof, so this home offers a private space where adult children or relatives can live while they study or work. It would give them a chance to get on their feet before they go out into the big, wide world,” Lou said.

Outside, there’s ample room for those extra cars, a boat or a caravan to park on the property, including a double garage, hardstand and a gravel parking area with side access to the backyard.

Blackshaw co-agent James Davis says the home, set on a fully-fenced, 775 square metre corner block, is a serene place to unwind and experience magnificent sunsets in the heart of Googong.

“This property is perfectly positioned on a spacious block, with ample space to relax and take in the stunning views without feeling crowded by neighbours,” he said.

“You can enjoy the sunset and watch the changing colours of the sky from your own oasis and be amazed by the views of the Tinderry Range from the master bedroom and deck.”

As soon as you walk in, the split-level home opens up in front of your eyes with open-plan living areas, super high ceilings and glass doors opening onto the timber deck.

“The kitchen overlooks the meals and living area, so you can cook and chat to the kids or guests at the same time,” he said.

“The back deck is a fabulous place to host family and friends. It’s a real entertainer’s home.”

A standout feature, he says, is the induction cooktop and 900 mm oven in the kitchen, perfect for preparing delicious meals, whether you’re an experienced chef or just starting out.

A media room offers seclusion and a peaceful place to read a book or watch a movie away from the main living area.

The master retreat features stunning views and an impressive walk-in robe. The ensuite is a touch of luxe with a double vanity and separate toilet. The three remaining well-proportioned bedrooms in the main part of the home are light-filled and share a good-sized modern bathroom with a shower and bathtub.

Coming into winter, Lou says the heating system is incredible, with reverse-cycle heating and cooling ensuring the home is comfortable all year round.

Designed with a busy family in mind, the home features a ducted vacuum for easy and convenient cleaning. It has vast amounts of storage, including additional robes in the hallway, laundry, garage storage room and space in the WIP ceiling.

Lou says the thriving Googong community is an exceptional place to raise a family, with schools, shops and parkland all within easy walking distance.

“You’ll quickly feel at home and make lifelong friends in this welcoming neighbourhood,” he added.

“Anyone looking for a stylish family home, with heaps of indoor and outdoor space and a flexible floor plan, should come and take a look.”
