A brand-new home on a hill with a beautiful park nearby will make one family very happy if they discover this gem.

Sales agent Shaun Iqbal from Impact Properties says the lifestyle home at 7 Pownall Street in Franklin is ideal for anyone who loves to entertain.

“This is a very rare find. A brand-new home in an established neighbourhood,” he said.

“The builder and the architect have designed and built the perfect lifestyle home. Inspections so far have shown that the family area and the way it connects to the outdoors are an instant attraction!”

With four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and parking for four cars, this property also offers a low maintenance and landscaped garden and privacy and space for growing children.

For the tech-savvy, smart features are integrated and can be controlled by a single tablet/smartphone application.

“Whether you are upstairs, downstairs, on the lounge, outside in the garden, or not even at home, you can dim the lights, adjust the heating or cooling, and answer the door via the camera-enabled intercom doorbell,” said Shaun.

“Upstairs, you have three bedrooms with a study area, a rumpus room, and a beautiful big bathroom.

“In fact, we’ve had some trouble drawing the teenagers who have been inspecting the home with their parents back downstairs so they could leave!”

This home comes with a modern kitchen with countless wow factors. Think quality tiles, mirrored splashbacks, strip lighting under the cupboards and pendant feature lighting over the extra-long kitchen island and breakfast bar.

Shaun said the kitchen is definitely the heart of this home – and every convenience has been considered.

“It has two ovens and a five-burner cooktop. Have a look at the space! When you are cooking a meal for the family and everybody is around it, you’ll be creating some priceless everlasting memories here.”

The extra wow factor comes in the form of a hidden butler’s pantry, and if you like to keep the size of your wine stash on the down low, you’ll appreciate the secret space for your hallowed collection.

“The kitchen and the hidden pantry have proved a real stand-out in the inspections so far.

“The black wall looks like just that, a black wall. But the last panel you can open in and out, both ways, and it accesses the pantry. It’s a brilliant design.

“The dining space is also big enough for a 12-seater table and chairs.”

All the bedrooms are perfectly proportioned, nicely carpeted and enjoy plenty of natural light. One of the upstairs bedrooms would make a sensational guest room as it has its own private balcony with uninterrupted views of Black Mountain in the mid-distance and Mt Majura in the foreground.

“It’s a massive build at 313 square metres. With the Canberra climate, people often look for a bigger structure because you can’t do much outdoors for several months of the year, so it’s good to have a bigger space to enjoy and do your activities inside.”

Outside, you have access via a double gate to an area that could be used as a wash bay or parking for your boat, caravan or extra vehicles.

The picture is complete with high fences, a synthetic lawn, meaning no mowing, and a lovely firepit space for family gatherings.

“The neighbourhood is full of families and has lots of larger homes; it’s a very family-orientated area.

“There is a park only 50 metres away, and it has a sitting area on top of a hill and amazing views of Parliament House, the city and Mt Ainslie. This area is a hilltop so there are wonderful aspects to enjoy.”

The Gubur Dhaura park features local Aboriginal artworks on site. It is a site of Aboriginal cultural significance and is exempt from suburban development. It has been made into a beautiful community park with artful interpretation to reveal the layers of history.

The site covers about six hectares and gives a scenic vista that allows a visual panorama of all major mountains and mountain ranges in the Gungahlin basin. The site also forms an integral part of the cultural significance to the Ngunnawal people.

This incredible residence comes with a price guide of $1.6 to $1.7 million.
