111 Shackleton Circuit,
An easy-care and versatile family home in a private woodland gardenLocated in a dress circle location and boasting a large easy-care block of over 1950 square metres this much-loved family home is reluctantly being sold providing the new owners with the opportunity of moving in as is or to make their own changes to suit their lifestyle. The current owners have spared no expense over the years to create a comfortable home with a beautiful garden vista from every window and the opportunity to have a second income.
The versatile floorplan is split over two levels and it includes spacious living areas upstairs and a rumpus room downstairs. The bedrooms and the main living areas are on the street level without the need for any steps. These separate living areas are all spacious and light-filled and they flow seamlessly to the large covered balcony which stretches out into the treetops and is a perfect spot for entertaining and large family gatherings. The well-appointed kitchen is ideally placed to connect with the family room via a large servery bar and also to have direct access to the dining room.
Three generous bedrooms are positioned across the front of the home and they all include built in robes. The master bedroom also has an award-winning ensuite (1998) which includes a separate spa bath and in-slab heating. The main bathroom and adjoining powder room have recently been renovated and are disability-friendly. The bathroom includes floor to ceiling tiles and connections and space for an upstairs laundry if required.
There is internal access to the rumpus room with adjoining kitchenette/laundry ensuring full enjoyment of the park-like back garden without the need to go upstairs. An added bonus is a large open-plan kitchen and living area, a fourth bedroom, and a combined bathroom and laundry downstairs that would be perfect as a self, contained flat, a teenager's retreat or for those wanting to work from home.
Quality fixtures and fittings have been used throughout including stone bench-tops, cedar paneling and tiled floors. Other features include gas heating, in-floor heating, a split-system air-conditioner, a gas fireplace, back to grid solar panels, a large double carport, a workshop, a garden potting room and an abundance of storage.
Shackleton Circuit is renowned for the generously-sized blocks, and the current owners have used this quality to its best advantage. As well as paved areas, the backyard features multiple spaces for enjoyment and is an ideal environment for adults looking to relax or entertain and also for children to explore or throw a ball. Nestled into a mature woodland garden with abundant birdlife this property is perfect for those wanting versatile indoor and outdoor space and easy-care living in a peaceful location within close proximity to the popular Southlands shopping centre, excellent schools, transport and only a short drive to the Canberra Hospital and the Woden Town Centre.
