About this property

A modern townhouse with classic Willemsen architectural style.

Sold prior to auction for $700,500.

Tucked away in a hidden & elevated position, this 3 bedroom Willemsen designed townhouse will excite those who love a modern home but don't want to forsake character. The recent renovations have turned a quaint space into a practical, sleek residence whilst retaining the unique qualities that make 2/42 Jinka St a stand out. Raked, Cedar-lined ceilings with exposed beams create open living spaces filled with light all year round.

Through this tri-level home you'll find new paint, floor-to-ceiling windows capturing maximum light & renovated bathrooms on both the upper & lower levels. The fully renovated kitchen comes with all that you'd expect of a new home; stone benchtops, upmarket appliances including an induction cook top & Asko oven. The massive amount of bench space allows for ample meal prep options & an eat-in meals area thanks to the island bench that looks out towards the front courtyard. Gather round mornings, noon & night over coffee, breakfast or drinks in this hub of the home. With in-slab heating underfoot across the lower & central levels, Canberra winters will pass by unnoticed.

The spacious main bedroom flows off the downstairs living area & is separate from the remaining bedrooms positioned upstairs. All bedrooms are fitted with either built-in or walk-in robes & are all north-facing overlooking the grassy, private rear courtyard (Bedroom 2 even has access to a private Juliet-style balcony). There are living spaces on all 3 levels & the top living area could even be converted into a 4th bedroom if required.

Fully enclosed by a brick wall offering privacy & an access gate to the side, the rear courtyard can see children playing gleefully in safety, or Sunday afternoon BBQ's becoming a ritual among friends & family.

Of course you'll need somewhere for all your guests to park when they come over, so you will appreciate the double garage & double spaces in front, plus there are 8 visitors spaces in the complex. The garage has side access to the front courtyard which is picture perfect boasting slate flooring & a new open pergola with a mature ornamental grapevine. Take a stroll through this unique offering, you are bound to fall in love.
