This three-bedroom, two-bathroom home at 5/42 Dengate Crescent in Moncrieff has well-established, landscaped easy-care gardens, a bright, cheerful interior and great family essential spaces making it a great buy for young families or downsizers.
This home was constructed in 2017 in a neighbourhood with parkland, schools and a local dog-walking park. It’s also in close proximity to the Gungahlin Markets and Casey Marketplace.
The front door of the home sits under a generous portico and opens to the entrance hall. The home has a separate lounge and dining room, with a connected family room off the kitchen. The light and lovely kitchen, with white benches and walls, has a large island ideal for homework conversations or catching up with the day’s events while preparing food.
The dining, kitchen and family rooms have timber floors, and a timber detail on the kitchen cupboards which ties in the interior to the room. Just behind the kitchen is the alfresco dining area with overhead fan for those hot summer days, ideal for family occasions. The kitchen is lit by an overhead skylight, ensuring the space is light and bright and the walk-in pantry off the kitchen is a great storage space for the dry groceries. Behind the pantry, internal access to the double garage makes for convenient grocery unpacking, particularly on one of Canberra’s rainy days.
There are two living areas in this home, ideal for families wanting a separate zone for children, or simply a formal lounge and a casual living area. The formal lounge has soft, plush carpeting and plenty of light and space, with a door accessing a paved outdoor area in the landscaped gardens.
The family room has timber flooring, and built-in storage for all those kids DVDs you’re constantly sorting out, or your electrical equipment. The room has a warm, friendly feel, and will be a cosy gathering place for adults and children alike.
The master bedroom has plush carpets and a beautiful aspect through the picture window onto the gardens, and a walk-in robe with great storage options for accessories and hanging space for clothes. The bathrooms feature up-to-date fixtures and tiles while the family bathroom has a lovely full-length bath for a long soak. Overhead fans in all the bedrooms will ensure there are no hot sleepless nights in summer.
Solar lights have been used in the landscaped gardens, and paths lead from one alfresco area to another, and to the driveway and front of the home. The plantings have been well thought out, with hardy Canberra native plants and bushes which provide a range of different foliages and colours, and the well-mulched garden beds will be easy to care for, creating a garden that will look fantastic all-year round.
This lovely home has ducted heating and cooling, which is becoming an imperative in our ever more extreme climate. It’s located close to the Casey Market Town, and quick access to Horse Park Drive for the morning commute.
McGrath Sales Agent Matt Harmer says the home is a great opportunity for a first-home buyer, and but will also suit downsizers.
“This home has great access to schools, parks and playgrounds,” he said.
“It’s one of the best opportunities on the market for a first-home buyer with a family. It’s a near-new home with an established garden, and ideally laid out for a family with young children.
“It’s very close to all the things a young family might need, and I’m sure there will be interest from people wanting to move to Gungahlin and access all the great community facilities we have,” he said.
