Amaroo house has style and space in spades

Space is increasingly becoming a rare commodity in Canberra’s property market – but not in this case. Number 25 Benaroon Circuit offers an executive residence, with a striking modern-classic facade, with rooms offering plenty of natural light.

The entry way naturally channels guests towards the formal living and dining rooms, as well as the more casual meals and family areas which flow in a circular fashion around the open plan kitchen. This clever design allows residents and their visitors to easily mingle and mix throughout this high-end home, or split into groups and partake in different activities or conversations.

Outside a covered entertaining area also offers use throughout Canberra’s four seasons, while a lovely lawn also beckons garden parties, kids activities and some time out with pets.

The three bedrooms on the lower-level are located away from the social areas, providing a sound buffer for young children or those wanting some timeout from entertaining. 

While one bedroom could easily serve as a rumpus room or kids’ lounge, another offers an ensuite and walk-in-robe making it an ideal master bedroom on the ground floor, guest bedroom or space for an older child.

Upstairs another bedroom can be found, next to the master suite. The main bedroom of the home offers a private balcony, generous walk in robe and ensuite with spa bath and separate toilet.

Having the option of a bedroom next to the master suite is great for parents with a new baby or a young child that wants to be close by, but out of the bedroom itself.

“I love the classic lines paired with the contemporary flare and neutral colours of this home,” selling agent Mario Sanfrancesco, of Peter Blackshaw Manuka, says.

The earthy colour palate throughout the home makes it easy to furnish and update with changing styles. High-end finishes include under-floor heating and European appliances.

“The fabulous location of this home across from parkland, along with the generous living space, outdoor alfresco, and guest bedroom with ensuite really make this a standout home in my eyes,” Sanfrancesco says. “The popularity of this suburb is only on the rise as well with more families and residents being driven to the area with the creation of new local infrastructure”.

This is a wonderful family property, with excellent lifestyle options and benefits that are sure to see residents call number 25 home for years to come.

We love: The location of this property, positioned opposite beautiful parkland, cycling and walking trails, and a short stroll to Yerrabai Pond.

Need to know: Highest recorded sale in the past 12 months: $1.4 million for 76 Diamond Street, in May. Recent sales: $1.07 million for 28 Bizant Street, in February; $840,000 for 38 Barrington Crescent, in February, and $740,000 for 24 Mission Street, in March.

Surrounding area: Amaroo has been named after an Indigenous word for “beautiful place”, and with green spaces throughout this established Gungahlin suburb you can understand why.  Its south-eastern side faces Yerrabi Pond, with schools and sporting associations to the area’s northern tip. Amaroo was established in the 1990s and streets have been named after Australian rivers and lakes. It is now home to a local shopping district, primary school and just 1.5 kilometres to the Marketplace Gungahlin, the district’s main shopping hub.
