Set on a glorious and private 801 sqm corner block, surrounded by nature and next to a reserve, is the captivating 76 Drooka Crescent in Crace.

It’s conveniently located only minutes from the local shopping village, lifestyle amenities and public transport services.

This four-bedroom, two-bathroom home offers a versatile layout with three living spaces plus a home office.

McGrath Canberra real estate agent Sam Taylor says the views at this Crace home are breathtaking.

“You can see the spectacular views going over Mitchell and the Gungaderra Grasslands Nature Reserve from many entertaining spaces, which I think is something that stands out a lot,” Sam says.

“The location and layout of the home are unique. It’s situated in a really tightly held street that’s quite popular too.

“When houses were built in Crace, you had to adhere to a certain number of different materials outside the home, and I think all the materials they’ve chosen are really eye-catching.”

Sam says the split-level Crace home, built in 2014, is broken up into three unique spaces, like “three different wings to the house”.

“As you enter the ground level, you’ve got the garage, laundry, the rumpus room and the study – I’d probably call it the kids’ space.”

“When you reach the middle level, you’ll find the living, kitchen and dining rooms- this is the entertainment space.

“The third level of the home are the living quarters.”

With 270 square metres of living space, the McGrath Canberra agent says the kitchen is “nice and simple”.

“It has a double oven, a 900-millimetre gas cooktop, a walk-in pantry and the 40-millimetre stone benches,” Sam says.

The kitchen also expands to an under-cover outdoor alfresco dining/sitting area.

The living spaces feature double-glazed windows and high ceilings – reaching 2.74 metres – on the ground level.

As you walk upstairs and into the bedrooms, you are greeted with stunning views of Gungahlin from the double-glazed windows.

The four large bedrooms feature built-in robes, with the master suite offering a generous walk-through-robe and ensuite.

“The bedrooms are set up for teenage children, so they’re larger than a standard bedroom,” Sam says.

“They also have plenty of storage and space for desks and cupboards.”

Combining cool white tones and a slick and stylish design, the bathrooms in the home include a bathtub and guest powder room both upstairs and downstairs.

The home also has ducted reverse-cycle heating and cooling installed.

This Crace property stands out with its two large alfresco areas, one out the front and one at the back, and an outdoor gas fireplace.

It also features easy-care designer gardens that bloom in the springtime and veggie patches that are ready to go.

“This property offers not one alfresco area but two,” Sam says.

An oversized garage provides double parking spaces and additional workshop space.

That’s the house – but what makes it a home is the community.

“The owners also said that every day, the neighbours always wave to one another, so there’s a really community feel and you’re surrounded by lovely people. This makes the home even more special.”

The next inspection is on Saturday 9 July, from 11:30 am to 12 pm.
