Thirteen will be an auspicious number for a home buyer when 13 Bainbridge Close, Chisholm, goes to auction on 20 February.

Renovations have transformed this four-bedroom, two-bathroom home into a very sleek and stylish property, from the stone letterbox to the expansive rear deck.

The home might have once been a quaint four-bedroom home typical of the era, but it is now a fully modern lifestyle residence taking advantage of both indoor and outdoor living. An impressive undercover rear deck provides alfresco dining and living space, and the transformed kitchen is both practical and breathtakingly beautiful.

The entrance to the home leads into a short hallway, with one bedroom directly in front, and the formal living room is separated from the hallway by a half-height wall, which enables light to stream through, to the right. Adjacent to the formal living room is the spectacular open plan kitchen/dining/family room, with access and views across the expansive rear deck.

And, what a room … a vast and beautiful space where families will gather, guests will be entertained and parties are practically compulsory. The kitchen includes a complete Bosch appliance package, with a double oven and induction cooking, integrated microwave and dishwasher, and a stunning aqua blue glass splashback, with a picture window over the stone benchtop framing a view of the established gardens.

With room for living and dining, the external deck is accessed by sliding doors from the family room. Overhead fans ensure a cool summer under the cover of the insulated roof, and glass balustrades provide an unobstructed view of the Brindabella Mountains. Heating means this beautiful deck can be used no matter the temperature.

The master bedroom is segregated from the other three bedrooms and is a generously sized, allowing for a sitting area or a reading nook. It has an enormous built-in robe and overhead fan, and a sliding door to access the exterior.

The ensuite is a beautiful spa-like space, with a dividing wall separating the frameless shower, double vanity and toilet.

The three large family bedrooms all have built-in robes, overhead fans and have access to the family bathroom, which is divided into three rooms, one with the vanity, one with the toilet, and one with the shower and full-length bath.

The home is a prime example of how to extend and renovate an average home into a spectacular and desirable family residence. Ray White sales agent Alec Brown said the home has many other advantages, including some clever tech solutions.

“This is a great family home,” said Mr Brown, “particularly with the intelligent use of technology, smart door access at the entry, a security system with camera, mobile access and a hard drive back up, USB ports in all bedrooms, the lounge, kitchen and living area, and data points going back to the main hub in all rooms.

“The home has a great energy rating, with double glazing on all windows, LED lights throughout, Rheem solar hot water with a continuous gas booster, and a northerly orientation to take advantage of the sun in winter.”

The home has been extended and has a double garage, an additional single garage, and a substantial workshop for the mechanically minded. The laundry has external access, and the family will love the walk-in linen cupboard and ample storage options in the home.

There’s ducted reverse-cycle air conditioning, and an irrigated lawn with a water tank feeding into the toilets and laundry.

The established gardens are lush, and provide plenty of room for pets and kids, with beautiful bluestone retaining walls and a firepit below the decking area.

The home will be auctioned on-site at 10:00 am on 20 February.
