WHEN OLD MEETS NEW
The owners brief to their architect in 2011 was simple; more space and privacy for a growing family while retaining the existing feel of the architecturally designed Oliphant 1960's home.
Fast forward to 2018 and what buyers see now is a beautifully presented family home, set back from the street in one of Canberra's most sought after suburbs.
With high ceilings and timber floors throughout the entry level, the rooms are spacious and light filled. The open plan lounge and dining room features a charming fireplace and flows into the kitchen and open plan family and meals area.
The kitchen servery allows you to interact with your guests as you prepare dinner while still providing privacy in the kitchen.
The WOW feature of the home is the open plan living areas with high ceilings, large double glazed windows with automatic blind controls, ceiling fans and access to the generously sized deck which has recently been re-surfaced. The deck makes a feature of the spreading elm tree and is the perfect spot for outdoor entertaining and overlooks the large backyard complete with a cubby house for the kids. The backyard is a blank canvas for the new owners, with plenty of room for a pool or other landscaping options.
Back inside there are four spacious bedrooms, all with built in robes and one with built in bookshelf. The refurbished bathroom features a stunning Balinese ceremonial doorway, floor to ceiling tiles, heated towel rails and underfloor heating.
Downstairs you'll find the spacious and private master bedroom with a walk-in robe and bathroom also featuring floor to ceiling tiles and underfloor heating. Alternatively it could serve as a teenagers retreat, guest bedroom or a rumpus room for the kids. Flexible living for the family.
As the downstairs bedroom is partially below ground level it enjoys good thermal insulation and is comfortable in all seasons, although there is underfloor heating to keep it cosy in winter.
There's car parking space at the front of the home for your guests and an extended single garage with internal access.
Conveniently located in the catchment of premium schools both private and public including Narrabundah College, Canberra and Girls Grammar and Telopea Park and proximity to Woden, the City and the vibrant centres of Manuka and the Kingston Foreshore means you have all the amenities you need for you and your family at your doorstep.
39 Dalrymple Street is a character filled home with flexible living for the family and in a desirable location. Make this home a must see on Saturday at 10am.
