Be Blown Away by This Enchanting Home!
Upon first glance, 18 Jackie Howe already gives you the image of the perfect, one-of-a-kind double storey family home which includes all the luxuries. With its stunning interiors, spacious rooms, beautiful backyard and warm welcoming feel, it’s no wonder this property is the favourite.
Coming down the driveway towards the entrance, you are already greeted by gardens which are immaculate in their presentation. The bright greens contrast nicely against the wooden deck and exterior of the house. Arriving at the front door, the beautiful stained-glass windows are the perfect touch to complement the exposed brick and pine flooring which is found through the entry, into the family room and kitchen.
To the right of the entrance, you will find the open plan dining and formal lounge area where exposed wooden beamed ceilings, new carpets, freshly painted walls and an elegant fireplace make this space incredibly special to enjoy the quiet moments with family and friends. There are three French doors which open out to the front deck and to the right lead downstairs to the back of the property.
As you go up the stairs from the dining area you enter the kitchen and smaller family area. The kitchen is spacious, has a gorgeous granite benchtop all the way around and features a newly installed Westinghouse four gas burner cook top, oven and range hood and a Westinghouse dishwasher. The family area is still a perfect space to wind down in and has enough room to fit a TV unit or it could be turned into a smaller dining room. There is also an air-conditioning unit on the wall between the two spaces.
This property doesn’t fall short of entertaining areas. Exiting out through the sliding glass doors from the family area, you walk onto the covered back deck which exits downstairs to the backyard and spa area and has shutter blinds for added sun protection. The spectacular views off the deck allow you to see all the way across the horizon and the way you can arrange the space to be whatever you desire is what really makes it an important aspect of this home.
Heading inside from the back deck, you will find the first bedroom to the right which is the master. It is perfectly secluded from the other bedrooms, having its own walk-in wardrobe with plenty of room to add in other shelving units or nightstands, a ceiling fan and its own ensuite. Sliding doors in the master bedroom also lead to the back deck. Back downstairs, you will find the rumpus room to the left which shows off more of the exposed brick that can be found at the entrance. A bar has been built in the corner which blends into the room nicely, with a dark wooden countertop and adequate space for bar stool seating. The other side of the rumpus room could easily fit in a lounge or other aesthetic features to match the vibe of the bar such as a pool table. There is a second fireplace located in the corner for those cooler nights.
The three other bedrooms are all incredibly generous and can be located in the downstairs area as well. Bedrooms three and four have their own built-in wardrobes and bedroom two features plenty of add on storage space and a double door which leads out to its own courtyard area. The main bathroom downstairs has a bathtub, large shower and vanity space with cupboards underneath the sink and the laundry room is located next door and exits out to the backyard. There is also an underground storage room located next to bedroom four. The backyard of this property is probably the most divine part, with the immaculate gardens continuing around from the front, which are low maintenance, there is a perfect lawn with surrounding shrubs that circle around another deck which holds a large outdoor swim spa that has glass entry gates for safety and room for outdoor lounge chairs or other seating arrangements.
This amazing property is located in a sought-after area of Macarthur and is about five minutes from Chisholm and Gowrie shops, seven minutes to Erindale Shopping Centre and ten minutes to Southpoint Tuggeranong. It is nearby public outdoor locations such as Fadden Pines Recreational Area and the Wanniassa Hills Nature Reserve and it is conveniently close to surrounding schools, bus stops and the Canberra Hospital as well.
Looking at this home, it comes with all the perks, practicality, good looks and comfort you could ever want for your next family home which is why it is not going to last long on the market, the time is now to take a leap of faith and call it your own!
