If you can picture yourself nestled away in your own private paradise with access to all the good stuff, this four-bedroom home in the Fadden Hills deserves your attention.

Just listed, 21 Sparkes Close lasted only eight days on the market when it was last up for grabs in 2021, so procrastination is best avoided here!

Selling agent Dan Cooper from Ray White Real Estate Canberra said the home will appeal to a range of buyers but would be ideal for growing or extended families due to its versatile floor plan and flexible living spaces.

“This is a home you could move straight into and enjoy as it is, or add your own touches in the future if you feel the need to.

“It provides enough living space for flexible living in terms of larger families, those with older or younger kids or extended families as it’s a good-sized home with 288 sqm of living space.

“There’s really nice segregation in terms of Mum and Dad upstairs in a nice, large master bedroom and the kids downstairs with their own good-size rumpus room, three bedrooms and a study – it’s very nicely laid out.

“It will provide a growing family plenty of space to be together or apart if needed.”

Situated on a 1213 square metre block, the house is nestled in the Fadden Hills towards the end of a cul-de-sac and up a battle-axe driveway, meaning absolute privacy.

“It backs straight out onto Wanniassa Reserve. It has a beautiful and extremely private outlook, which is rare for a large home like this. It’s quiet but it’s also close to everywhere.”

You can stroll around the ridge or head up to Trig Station where you’ll be rewarded with fine views over Canberra. Alternatively, you can put on activewear and trek or cycle around the Isaac and Farrer trails.

Dan said this area of Fadden had plenty of community appeal, and he expected the property’s key values of location and seclusion to be a drawcard.

“Fadden Hills is kind of like a little gated community. You drive in, and there’s the beautiful duck pond on the right and the Fadden Hills tennis courts on the left. It’s a nice, quiet location.

“You are surrounded by large, quality homes in this area, and while they come up occasionally, this one, with its layout and access to walks and trails, is a standout.

“It’s not the only one of its type on the market, but its rarity is that it backs onto the reserve, which is quite a nice thing.”

Set over two levels, the house has internal access via the oversized triple garage. There’s ducted gas heating, a feature stone fireplace and evaporative cooling. The laundry and powder room have been recently refurbished.

Outside, there’s a private entertaining area and lush lawn space that Dan cites as similar to a croquet pitch.

He said the kitchen felt like it would be the social hub of the house.

“It has a really nice kitchen with a large stone breakfast bar benchtop and quality finishes.

“It’s a great setting because you’ve got a huge kitchen, and when you stand there, you can’t see any other homes. It’s so private that you could be anywhere.

“To me, it feels like a really social part of the house – the hub or the nucleus.

“I can imagine the family or guests gathering around in it – it’s a great space as the casual meals/family area then opens out to the outdoor area through the bi-folding doors.”

Fadden is regarded as a sought-after neighbourhood renowned for its prestige, convenience and tranquillity. Located five minutes from Erindale, Woden and Tuggeranong, you will enjoy proximity to top-rated schools, shopping precincts, parks and recreational facilities.

21 Sparkes Close at Fadden will be auctioned onsite at 10 am on 27 April. The home is open for inspection on Saturday, 6 April, at 11 am and 2 pm. For more information or to arrange an inspection, contact Dan Cooper on 0412 773 938 and be sure to check out all the latest listings on Zango.
