Tranquil rural surroundings and mountain views from an elevated pocket of Conder are drawing families and older couples to a double-storey brick home to be auctioned at the end of November.
Bay windows bring superb vistas of the surrounding bushland at 38 Eaglemont Retreat, which will go under the hammer on-site on Saturday, 30 November at 10:00 am.
Listed with McIntyre Property, selling agent Kellie Chalker-Hall says the expansive family home has endearing features on every level, with a bush reserve flanking the rear and side of the property.
“In just about every room in the house, there are views to the ranges, the reserve, walking trails, a creek. It’s all beautiful,” she says.
“Young families often represent most buyers in the Tuggeranong area, but in this instance, more interest is coming from older couples. Prospective buyers include people re-locating into Canberra from farmlands in NSW, accustomed to ample room. It is a good-sized home and feels like you have plenty of space, and are not on top of each neighbour,” Kellie says.
From the entrance, lobby stairs climb to four bedrooms, each with an eagle’s perspective of the surrounding landscape which includes the beautiful Lanyon Valley and Rob Roy Range.
The spacious master bedroom has three windows which capture panoramic views of the Brindabella Mountain range and far-away horizon. Peaceful due to its size, the master bedroom also has a walk-in robe and an en suite.
Each of the remaining three bedrooms have built-in robes and close access to a large main bathroom, which has a bath and shower recess. A separate toilet conveniently adjoins the bathroom. There is a fifth bedroom or a study downstairs, and a powder room.
The home’s owners raised their family in this lovely residence, which has segregated living areas.
“The main reason they purchased the home was the location,” Kellie says. “When they purchased it, it was very Federation style; they have done quite a lot of work to it. They have re-painted and put in new carpet and a new kitchen. The only original features are the bathrooms. They are functional as well as original,” Kellie says. “It is the kind of home you really need to come into to see; it is so much grander once you arrive.”
A sumptuous entertainer’s kitchen offers quality appliances, built-in dishwasher, microwave oven, stone benchtops and a deep, double ceramic sink. Thoughtfully designed storage options sit beneath and above the benchtop area while feature tiling and pendant lighting add to the inviting, functional space. A dining room sits on one side of the kitchen, a meals area on the other, which opens to the large family room.
As well as the large formal lounge room, there is a generous rumpus room, which would be ideal for a home office, while period-style features including decorative cornices, ceiling roses and picture rails adorn many of the rooms.
Ducted gas heating, evaporative cooling and ceiling fans enhance the home’s liveability throughout the year.
On a 1275 square metre block the established, low-maintenance garden has stone stairs, natural rockeries, native and exotic shrubs, paved pathways, easy access to a double garage and a garden gazebo. The garden has direct access to Conder Ridge. A rear fenced area provides security for young children and pets.
Kellie says homes along one side of quiet and peaceful Eaglemont Retreat back on to the reserve, and numbers 38 and 40 share a driveway near the top of the hill in a private area.
Charles Conder Primary School, St Clare of Assisi Primary School and Lanyon High School are nearby. St Mary Mackillop College, Covenant College and Trinity Christian School are the private high schools for this area.
New restaurants in South Point, Tuggeranong, offer tasty, diverse dining options less than 10 minutes away.
