Located in one of South Canberra’s most highly prized, blue-ribbon streets, this five-bedroom, two-bathroom family home at 13 Sheehan Street in Pearce is ready for your family to live, work and play in a serene, spacious environment.

Backing on to Mount Taylor Reserve, Sheehan Street offers direct access to the pathways of the reserve, which Soley Properties principal agent Andrew Thorpe says “is a big tick in the right box.”

The home is set on a massive 1279 sqm block, similar to many others in this street, and is filled with large established trees.

The property has come on to the market for the first time in 27 years as the current owners are downsizing empty nesters, so now it is time for a new family to make memories in this lovely home.

Built in 1968 and built to last, Andrew says the home would suit a range of buyers.

“You can move straight in, do some minor renovations or extensions or rebuild. With an impressive sales record, it would be hard to overcapitalise on this street,” he said.

Manicured, fragrant gardens will greet you as you step inside the home via the sweeping front verandah and entry foyer with beautiful parquetry floors, double-sash windows, and pelmet top curtains in the formal lounge.

The spaciousness continues into the dining room for celebratory dinners with family and friends. Spanning out from here, French doors take you out to a large glass sunroom for a taste of the outdoors in winter rain or summer sunshine with unobstructed floor-to-ceiling views of the backyard.

The enormous kitchen is the established heart of this home. Its streamlined design features quality stainless steel Bosch appliances, a wealth of cupboards and drawers, a corner pantry, a breakfast bar and two windows where you can take in the views of the backyard.

All five generously sized bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, while the master bedroom also has an ensuite.

On ground level there’s a separate retreat and the option of a fifth bedroom or study, providing another dimension of living space.

Ducted gas heating will keep you cosy and warm in winter while ducted evaporative cooling maintains the comfort level in the warmer months.

There is plenty of storage, including under the house, an oversized garage with workshop bench space, a carport and generous off-street parking.

“The garden is another stand out feature of this home. As it is an older garden, the plantings are well established, including well-manicured hedges. There is also a separate vegetable garden and orchard area with a garden shed and two water tanks at the back of the property,” Andrew says.

The large grassed area surrounded by meandering decomposed granite paths, and a paved entertaining area, means there is plenty of space for kids or dogs to play.

Just five minutes to Woden, the home is near quality public and private schools, and is only a short trip to the city.
