Built on a corner block, 18 Kettle Street in Gungahlin is a stand out for all the right reasons. Architecturally designed, north-facing, solar-powered with beautiful views of Yerrabi Pond and parkland, less than 5 minutes’ drive to Gungahlin Market Place and a short drive to Horse Park Drive, the four-bedroom two-bathroom home is a great option for families who are looking for the ideal upsizing solution.

This visually engaging home has great kerb appeal, and plenty of room for external on-street guest parking, in addition to a double garage with automatic doors and internal access straight into the kitchen/living zone.

The deck is perfect for entertaining

Clever design makes the outdoors another room to entertain and enjoy.

The interior of the home has been cleverly extended to the exterior, with external walls painted in feature colours, and covered with shade sail giving an extra 55 square metres of entertaining space all-year-round.

It also presents a beautiful vista with views of Yerrabi Pond.

The kitchen extends to a meals area downstairs and connects to the living/dining room. Separated from the rest of the ground floor are the supremely peaceful master suite, and on the opposite side of the home, the formal living room.


The newly extended kitchen with granite benchtops and plenty of storage space.

The kitchen has been extended and has granite benchtops and an industrial quality oven, and high skylights making a bright and beautiful space in which to enjoy the company of friends and family around the large island bench. A generous family living room with a gas log fire will keep the whole family warm and entertained in winter while a separate retreat upstairs ensures separate living zones for teens and parents.

The master bedroom has walk-in robes and a beautifully appointed ensuite, with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors providing a seamless indoor-outdoor transition.

Upstairs, three bedrooms cluster around the family bathroom and a separate teenage retreat/lounge, which has a balcony overlooking the Yerrabi Pond. The rooms are light and spacious, with reverse-cycle air conditioning and a separate study nook.

This home has solar panels, and a rainwater tank, and underfloor heating in the kitchen and dining zone. Ideal for families, the home will attract those wanting not just more space, according to Luton Sales Agent Alysia Walsh, but separate zoned space.

“This home cleverly provides for families with differing age ranges. While mum and dad are entertaining downstairs in the deck or formal living and dining areas, teenagers and kids are happy in their own lounge space upstairs, with their own rooms and bathroom,” she said.

“This home has been so cleverly designed to make the most of its north aspect, with the high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass, and skylights throughout, capturing plenty of natural light.

“The heart of the home is the kitchen, though,” said Ms Walsh, “and this one is light, and bright and so well equipped for everything it will make cooking easy, and entertaining easier.”
