6 Tennyson Crescent Forrest ACT 2603
ABELIA - Impressive Family Offering6 Tennyson Crescent, Forrest
"Abelia", which is situated on a magnificent 3,361sqm parcel of land, was built in 2000 by one of Canberra's old school builders with a quality that is rarely replicated today. This impressive home enjoys formal and informal living areas enhanced by an abundance of light. With the enchanting design of the surrounding gardens, which have been open for charity on several occasions, "Abelia" would provide a private world of enjoyment for any family wanting a forever home.
The free flowing interiors of this residence make it ideal for effortless indoor and outdoor entertaining. There are three bedrooms upstairs each with a walk-in robe. This second level, which includes a bathroom and a sunny sitting room, would suit a growing family as it provides a separate space for a younger generation to enjoy. On the ground floor there is a master bedroom with ensuite and a walk-in robe. A generously sized study with ample space for a home office is adjacent to the entry. On the ground floor there is also a fifth bedroom, next to the main bathroom, which could alternatively serve as a second study. Network cable connects the second floor bedrooms with the fifth bedroom and the study.
The kitchen includes a walk-in pantry, generous cupboard space, modern appliances and superb Stone Italiana bench tops which are embedded with lapis lazuli and other semiprecious stones. Adjacent to the kitchen is the laundry with an external door and plenty of cupboard space. The wine room with racking for 400 bottles is next to the kitchen. From the kitchen there is direct access to the very large four car garage and alcove work area.
Other features include hydronic wall heaters throughout the ground floor and the second storey has reverse cycle ducted air-conditioning. The original swimming pool (12m x 6m) has been converted into a 90,000 litre reservoir filled by runoff from the gutters and replenished from the licensed bore. This original pool has been incorporated into the lower terrace and its hidden presence is a delightful surprise when explained to visitors. The second 12metre swimming pool is nestled in the garden and has solar and gas heating, a sheer descent water feature and an electrically operated cover. As well as the four car garage there is a separate building which provides additional parking for two cars together with a workshop. This building could be set up as a gym or play room or could be used for storage.
