A stone's throw from the bustling Belconnen Town Centre, minutes from the Canberra City and just moments from Belconnen Markets, Bunnings and Jamison Plaza, is one of Canberra's best kept secrets. Tucked away in a sleepy cul de sac overlooking nothing but green space, 29 Goulburn place is an all-star property in a blue chip suburb. Its central location, with Macquarie Primary School through the back gate, is a key feature. Radford College, Canberra High School, Calvary Hospital, University of Canberra, CIT and AIS are all within minutes away. Set upon an enormous quarter-acre block, this property is sure to surprise.

They say first impressions last a lifetime but 29 Goulburn Place is the exception to the rule, revealing itself to be a truly special home extended twice in its near 50 year history. Manicured gardens lead to the East-facing terrace, sun-filled kitchen and family room. Reconfigured into a modern and functional space, the heart of the original home is now prime for cooking and entertaining.

Kitchen features include:

  • Gas cook tops
  • Bosch dishwasher
  • Rinnai instant gas hot water
  • Tinted North-facing windows
  • Reverse cycle air conditioning
  • Updated layout
  • East-facing terrace with sheltered outlook

29 Goulburn Place has been perfectly oriented to maximise warmth in Winter, with all living areas and the master bedroom immersed in Northern sun. The home is kept cool in the warmer months with minimal exposure to the harsh heat from the West and comfortable year round with a combination of heating/cooling options including reverse cycle air conditioning in the kitchen/family room, ducted gas heating, ducted evaporative cooling and under-floor heating in the ensuite and main bathroom. A feature electric fireplace in the living room provides ambience.

Practicality is key at 29 Goulburn Place, with copious storage throughout. The colossal laundry features built-in laundry chute and linen press linked directly to the main bathroom, integrated European-style laundry, extra fridge space and more cupboards than you could ever dream of. The updated main bathroom features a heated towel rail, under-floor heating and its very own hot water unit, separate from the other bathroom.

The bedroom configuration will suit both kids, older family members and guests alike, with three of the five bedrooms segregated to a separate wing of the home. Formerly two separate rooms, bedroom number two has been opened up to a gargantuan size, providing flexible options including a substantial home office.

Despite its age, no expense has been spared in keeping the original home up-to-date, with brand new electrics fitted with new switchboard and circuit breakers, in addition to back-to-base alarm system throughout.

The extended living areas offer plenty of versatility, with ample space for formal dining and family areas. Guests will feel right at home with the separate powder room - ideal for entertaining and easily accessed from outside. From the formal living you're lead through to the most recent of the extensions, with the spacious master suite and 5th bedroom above and double garage below. Featuring its very own private balcony overlooking the neighborhood playing field, the view from the master bedroom will be a tough one to leave each morning. The walk-through robe leads on to the spacious ensuite, with modern design and a built-in mirror with added storage.

The downstairs double garage has extra length, ideal for a home workshop or some added storage. The electric roller door and interior access guarantee a smooth welcome home.

Outdoors at 29 Goulburn Place is guaranteed to delight, with a perfect balance of manicured garden, lawn and phenomenal outdoor entertaining. A fully bespoke multi-level deck leading directly from the main living areas of the home will easily accommodate the very biggest of gatherings and with its very own fire-place, it's perfect for winter entertaining.

Rain water tanks and Colourbond fences make garden maintenance a breeze, with direct trailer access to the backyard and separate back gate providing direct access to Macquarie Primary School and public path to Belconnen markets and town centre beyond.
