Don’t let the simple brick façade fool you. This huge home has undergone a complete transformation inside and, located in the heart of Kaleen, it’s a cracking buy for a large family.

With five bedrooms, two open-plan living areas plus a rumpus room and a big level backyard, 17 Tyrrell Circuit in Kaleen is ideal for a big, busy family or to accommodate the extended family.

LJ Hooker Kaleen sales agent Tim Russell says the home doesn’t look large from the street, but the front door opens to reveal a light-filled sprawling home with loads of space for everyone to enjoy.

“Everything about this home is generous,” he said.

“The bedrooms are a great size, all with built-in robes, and the master ensuite is bigger than some family bathrooms.”

The large family that called this property home has made the most of the segregated living spaces.

“The teenagers can get together in the rumpus room while the adults relax in the open-plan living area,” Mr Russell said.

“There’s plenty of break-out spaces and room for very large family gatherings or soirees.”

Over the past few years, the owners have renovated every inch of the home, so there’s nothing left to do but move in and make the most of this beautiful property.

The country-style galley kitchen is stunning with a tonne of storage space, dual oven and stone benchtops.

“When you’re standing in the kitchen, it’s so light and bright with big windows looking straight into the backyard,” Mr Russell said.

“It’s the perfect spot for the family to socialise or to sit and enjoy a quiet morning coffee taking in the great outlook.”

The fully fenced level backyard currently accommodates a ninja gym (not included in sale), plus a trampoline and is ideal for kids and pets, with loads of scope to add your own lifestyle touches.

“There’s room for a swimming pool or to build a great outdoor entertaining area with a firepit,” Mr Russell said.

“The block is 776 square metres, but the way the house is positioned provides a great outdoor space.”

Because it has been home to a large family, the house features loads of storage space everywhere, for all the kids sporting goods and toys, plus there’s an extra space of the kitchen that is currently used as a mudroom, but could be converted into a study nook.

A double garage plus carport provides additional space for all the push bikes and three vehicles.

Located in a quiet loop street and looking out across the open playing fields, the home exudes a relaxing and calm vibe.

This is a versatile and practical home in one of Canberra’s best locations, with some of Kaleen’s best schools right on your doorstep, including St Michael’s Primary School in the same street, and surrounded by bike paths, walking trails and playing fields.

The home is in immaculate condition with low maintenance, easy-care gardens, and a Daikin ducted reverse-cycle heating and cooling system that ensures it remains comfortable all year round.

The property will go to auction on Wednesday, 22 December at 6 pm.
