Set in a prime location on a 699 square metre block in the heart of the Woden Valley, this luxury home at 3 Parker Street in Curtin – with more than a touch of cosiness – has everything you could want and more.

LJ Hooker Woden real estate agent Jane Macken said the home was built with multi-generational living in mind.

“On the outside, it’s got a cottage look, but the minute you step inside you’ll see it’s a large home that’s immaculately presented,” Jane said.

“Once the doors are open, there’s a beautiful open-plan living area, double timber doors that lead to the front deck and modern tones throughout, which make it feel very welcoming.

“It’s also fully renovated, extremely modern, and has a segregated second living space which makes it perfect for families who need that extra bit of room.”

Jane explains that the home’s expansive entertaining, dining and living zone takes centre stage.

“There’s also double-glazed windows, freshly painted walls, new skirting boards and architraves, timber flooring and carpet.

“The second living area/family room sits atop a split level too, which offers additional separation where you can see your children play while cooking in the kitchen or sitting outside.”

The home also features a new ducted split system for heating and cooling.

As you come across the kitchen, you’ll see the custom cabinetry, stone benchtops and tiling.

Jane said the open-plan kitchen is well equipped with a butler’s pantry with lots of storage space and a 900 mm induction cooktop.

“It has a beautiful stone island benchtop in the centre that’s very sleek,” the agent said.

“This space also anchors all the living and entertaining areas, so you can see to the living area, you can see to the segregated living up the stairs, and you can also see out to the rear patio and combined cooking and entertaining at the same time.”

The real estate agent said this home ticked boxes with multi-generational living, with its unique floorplan that offers four bedrooms, two master bedrooms and two-generously sized rooms that are perfect for kids, teens and adults.

“It’s one of those multi-generational homes that’s laid out to cater to younger families, but also to those that might have visitors or elderly family members and want to have additional room.”

“There’s a master suite downstairs, which would be perfect for guests, and you have the other master suite upstairs. Both have walk-in robes,” Jane said.

“The other two bedrooms are a great size and have built-in robes.”

Jane said the two bathrooms have also been renovated.

“The main bathroom has a separate toilet and conceals the laundry as well, so it makes the space very functional,” she said.

“The ensuite is new, has its own shower, toilet and vanity, and was only built about three months ago.”

There is also a new powder room with an additional walk-in robe and the bathrooms have been recently updated with high-quality fittings and finishes.

Jane said the alfresco was also a stand-out for buyers as it’s perfect for entertaining.

Some of its key features include beautifully landscaped and easy-care gardens, an outdoor heated spa pool, a newly paved outdoor balcony and an oversized double garage.

“The location is amazing – it only takes minutes to get anywhere,” she said.

“It’s about a two-minute walk to the local shops and there are two primary schools nearby.

“What appeals most about it is its aspect of multi-generational living and space for visitors. Since it’s open plan, it’s ready to move into, and there’s no need to spend money on a renovation as it’s ready to go.”

3 Parker Street will go to auction on Thursday, 16 February, at 6 pm.
