Don’t forget about the classic, Aussie family home.

That’s the message real estate agents are reminding potential buyers amidst the flurry of apartment purchases in Canberra.

With a home like this in Holt, you can definitely understand why they spruik this message, too.

Andrew Lonsdale from Ray White Canberra says the home is a true testament of the benefits and convenience of suburban living.

“For me suburb-wise, Holt is one of those more affordable and family-friendly suburbs. When you consider the size of the block the home is situated on, there is lots of opportunity to extend and grow out the back.

“The affordability of the size of the blocks compared to new developments in Gininderry is really attractive. It’s a classic Aussie home with a big backyard, so the possibilities are endless” he says.

39 Cavill Close, Holt is a four-bedroom one-bathroom home, also capable of storing four cars under both a carport and a generous-sized wired garage.

The large backyard is also flat, making it ideal for pets and children to frolic without hindrance. Inside, the rooms are warmed by polished, hardwood timber floors and ducted gas heating – ideal for this time of year.

Andrew says it is equally appealing in the summer months just around the corner.

“The kitchen looking to the backyard is really lovely. I can picture family barbies out the back, kids running around in summer, maybe an inflatable pool. It’s really a beautiful backyard and great for entertaining. Great to renovate or extend as well, if buyers were inclined,” he says.

The home is conveniently located away from major traffic, and close to schools and shops. Holt, like many other suburbs in Canberra, is experiencing the direct benefits of growth, which makes this place an even more appealing prospect for young families who are on the market.

Kippax is going to go through a big upgrade which is great. The home also benefits from easy access to Belconnen Magpies golf and footy clubs. Belconnen Town Centre is also close-by. The home is perfect for a young family to grow and maybe extend their home, settle here for years to come,” he says.

Warm and modern living areas.

The home features three water tanks, and the wired garage makes it an ideal spot for a workshop. The kitchen is deliberately north-facing to take advantage of sunlight all day.

These kinds of useful features are expected to make the upcoming auction a popular one with potential buyers, according to Andrew.

Belconnen has sold a huge amount of properties recently and we have seen there’s a great market share. It’s not uncommon to expect 25-30 people coming to look on the first weekend.

“The home is in terrific condition and owner-occupied. It’s set up as an adaptable home as well, with ramps set up for accessibility. For families, this home is really the Great Australian Dream.”

39 Cavill Close, Holt will be auctioned on 17 August 2019 through Ray White Canberra. To arrange an inspection, call Andrew Lonsdale (0428 486 692) or Nathan Wood (0432 228 630) or click here.
