Executive City Retreat

Set on an expansive 1538sqm parcel and positioned in the highly sought-after Vasey Crescent, this home backs Mount Pleasant Nature Reserve. Even though the property is five minutes from Civic Centre, you will think you're in the countryside as the only sounds you will hear when sitting on the large back deck are birds singing and water fountains. 35 years since this home was last on the market, the grounds feature mature landscaping and lovely mosaics, including a magnificent, shady day lounge that will come with the property. The stunning and unique garden has featured in magazines and on Better Homes and Gardens. For those who want a sustainable and eco-friendly environment, an enclosed, organic vegetable garden caters for year-round sustenance, a fox-proof chicken coop provides you with eggs and a compost system helps keep it all alive. All garden areas are automatically drip irrigated from a very large underground rainwater tank. 32 solar panels, double glazed windows to most of the south facing windows, heavily insulated and the due north facing aspect ensures very low energy bills and year-round comfort. Inside, you'll find multiple living areas. The sizeable master suite holds access to a private light filled deck and includes a built-in robe. The second bedroom is generous in size, holds a study nook and a built-in robe. Two other bedrooms offer built in robes. A separate guest bedroom is tucked away from the main house with its own half bathroom and built in robes. With a terrific leafy outlook from every window in the home, you'll never be short of a good view. The very large floor heated area presently a home office holds potential to be a bedroom or living room or whatever your heart desires. The spectacular bay shaped dining room with underfloor electric heating connects with the garden and the reserve as a backdrop. The kitchen is inclusive of steel appliances, sleek benchtops, a walk-in pantry and plenty of storage. The recently replaced front deck extends the length of the home on the north side, providing sunny seating/dining places. Just moments away from the lake, and the precincts of Campbell - home to cafes, wine bars, restaurants, medical facilities, bus stops and supermarket; and within close proximity to blue ribbon schooling and the centre of town - convenience is at your doorstep. Close to workplaces, Parliament house, universities and only 3 minutes from the airport for those who are frequent travellers for work, business or leisure. * 1538sqm block, so large and so private that you will never hear or see the lovely neighbours unless you make an arrangement to do so * Highly sought-after and tightly held Vasey Crescent * Backing onto the bush and bird habitats of the lower slopes Mount Pleasant Nature Reserve and to walking and biking trails that extend to Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura reserves and beyond, * Creative landscaping and stunning gardens featured in Better Homes and Gardens television show and magazine, including unique and colourful sail protected mosaic day lounge * Automatic drip irrigation to all garden areas pumped from a 70,000-litre concrete water tank under the floor of the garage * Plenty of space for a pool and or a tennis court.
