Situated in the serene suburbs of Melba, this sanctuary tells a tale of the love and growth of a family. Purchased in December 2007, this home was beyond just a structure of bricks and beams but a canvas where a family’s life unfolded in vibrant strokes.

Originally built in 1975, this split-level three-bedroom house became a haven for the homeowners, who sought a balance between work and family life. Their quest for a home close to their workplaces, renowned schools and nearby shopping centres led them to this charming dwelling, only a stone’s throw from Belconnen, offering a quiet yet connected suburb that was perfect for raising their family.

The home experienced extensive renovations between 2012 to 2014, transforming it into an ideal abode that echoed the family’s personality and style. At the heart of the home, they knocked down walls to create an open-plan concept, seamlessly blending the lounge and kitchen, with sliding door access to a spacious sunlit courtyard. Here, countless moments were shared, from daily family interactions to grand celebrations with loved ones.

The revamped kitchen boasts a large island breakfast bar, topped with stunning redgum hardwood – a well-loved space for homemade meal preparation, complimented by the backdrop of family tales. Off the kitchen, an integrated, built-in study nook witnessed many afternoons of homework and creative projects.

Each of the three bedrooms, adorned with new plush carpet and built-in wardrobes, provided a cozy retreat for every family member. In particular, the sizeable, segregated master bedroom, with its generous walk-in wardrobe and private ensuite, was a luxurious escape from the household’s bustling energy.

Outside, the courtyard, the homeowners’ pride, was meticulously renovated to create an oasis of comfort. Sydney Sandstone-rendered walls, re-paved flooring, a built-in BBQ and water feature, and the addition of a large fireplace seating area, transformed it into an enchanting outdoor living space, enjoyed by the whole family year-round.

The memories embedded into every wall fill this home with a unique charm. It was here that the homeowners watched their children evolve from infants to tweens, each room bearing witness to milestones and laughter. Birthdays, Christmases, and everyday moments were all celebrated with gusto, leaving an indelible mark on this home’s character.

As the homeowners embark on their next chapter, to be closer to the coast and their extended family, they leave behind a legacy of love in a space that has nurtured their family for over a decade. 6 Henslowe Place is not just a house, it’s a treasure trove of memories and a promising start for another family’s story – a home that is ready to welcome its next chapter.
