15 Houghton Place, Spence

A RARE GEM PERFECT FOR GARDEN LOVERS SOLD AT AUCTION - $775,000

Set on an expansive parcel of land this wonderful 4-bedroom family home backing onto a nature reserve is just a short stroll from the popular Spence shops while offering the serenity of Australian country living. Built in 1975, the original homestead has been extensively renovated over the years.

As you enter the home you are greeted by an open plan kitchen and dining area. The custom-built kitchen features Tasmanian Blackwood benchtops, quality stainless steel appliances and gas cooking. This opens onto a large outdoor entertaining alfresco with views of the spectacular gardens.

Accommodation is 4 sizable bedrooms with built-in robes to two bedrooms. The master bedroom features a large walk in robe and ensuite

The large living room includes an open fireplace for cosy fireside evenings during those chilly Canberra winters.

But it is the garden that is the jewel of this property. Garden enthusiasts will recognise the trademark design elements of the legendary Edna Walling, in who's memory this garden has been created. Trees of all sizes and colours, from towering gums to gorgeous flowering crab-apples and Japanese maples, were strategically planted many years ago to provide shade in summer and sunlight in winter. Flowering trees and shrubs are underplanted with bulbs and perennials so that there is a constantly changing vista from both indoor and outdoor living areas.

A picturesque wooden bridge separates the main garden from the service area, containing the clothesline, garden shed and a spacious chicken run.

Within close proximity to arterial roads, local schools and shops this wonderful property provides an incredible lifestyle opportunity for you and your family.
