Can I afford this property?

Refined and inviting home in exceptional location

Set back from the street and framed by an enchanting garden of lush exotic plantings, the elevated front entry of this elegant home affords lovely views of the Brindabellas. A series of discreet renovations has lent it contemporary appeal while glimpses of vintage features, including picture rails in some rooms, offer a satisfying spark of character. Off the formal entry, French doors open to an airy formal lounge and dining room where an extended wall of north-facing windows is punctuated by a cosy fireplace. The kitchen has generous storage and preparation space with stone benchtops. Quality appliances include a five-burner gas cooktop, double-drawer dishwasher and double oven.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a casual meals space plus a large built-in bench opposite a library wall that would be the ideal place for children to do their homework, or offer a change of workspace from the dedicated study at the front of the home. Two patios bookend the enticing sunken garden room that doubles as a family or sitting room. They not only allow you to follow the sun throughout the day but provide an attractive entrée to the rear garden which is a long private space zoned with productive garden beds and additional seating nooks. The roomy master bedroom has an extensive built-in full-width wardrobe, a built-in dresser and a luxury ensuite with shower, bathtub and underfloor heating.

Located in Yarralumla's embassy belt, this prime location puts you within walking distance of the Deakin shops, Yarralumla Primary School, Canberra Girls Grammar's junior campus and Parliament House. There are lovely lakeside walking trails nearby and easy transport access to the city, Woden and other well regarded schools.
