20 Packer Street,
A CLASS ABOVE THE RESTPositioned in one of Weetangera's prestigious streets and set back on an impressive 1,803m2 block with an elegant semi-circular driveway is 20 Packer Street, a well constructed and charming American Colonial style residence ready to impress the most discerning of families.
This impeccably presented and spacious 355m2 home welcomes you with its grand double door entrance, marble flooring and soaring ceilings which flow through to a sophisticated living room and separate dining room. The versatile and clever floor plan segregates the multiple living areas from the bedroom quarters, ideally suited to both formal entertaining and day to day requirements of relaxed family living. All bedrooms are generous in size with built in robes, the master bedroom with his and her walk-through robes, ensuite with spa bath.
The renovated French provincial kitchen is the central hub of the home and is well equipped for the chef of the family with Corian benchtops, quality stainless steel Miele appliances, including a concealed dishwasher and combined gas and electric cooktop with a wok burner. Adjoining the kitchen is the north facing spacious family room and meals area which leads to an impressive English Amdega conservatory offering copious amounts of light and space with a leafy outlook over the rear garden. Enjoy delightful views with twinkling lights over Belconnen during the evenings.
Perfect during the summer months is the delightful in-ground swimming pool and expansive private courtyard (including a built-in mains gas barbecue) which provides the ultimate space to host pool parties or to entertain with family and friends. A beautiful wide rear verandah ensures year round relaxing and entertaining. The lower level of the terraced garden is a haven for the garden enthusiast whilst still providing plenty of room for pets and children to play.
The orientation of the home offers a high energy rating of 5.0 in addition to the added floor and ceiling insulation and external window shutters can be opened or closed dependent on the season. Other stand out features include solar panels, hydronic under-floor heating and two generous sized storage rooms and a workshop underneath the home. Car accommodation is also extremely generous with its double garage and ample off street parking at the rear.
If location, lifestyle and privacy are high on your priority list, this delightful home is worthy of your inspection this weekend.
