“Mollison” An Iconic Character Residence

Auction Location: On site.   

Combining position, elegance and rare historic significance, this majestic home is one of Canberra's landmark properties and offers a haven of generous size, refined character and utmost privacy. It is an exceptional family residence and creates a lasting impression with its elegant proportions, restored traditional features and sophisticated modern additions. This 1,353sqm landholding features expansive level grounds, established secluded gardens with rolling hedge.

The unique Federation facade is a beautiful introduction to the home, and once inside you will see sensitively modernised interiors retaining original features such as the restored decorative ceilings and polished timber floors. The flowing layout includes traditional formal lounge and dining rooms combined with a bright contemporary living space, with gourmet kitchen and Carrara marble benchtops.

'Mollison' is named after Dr. J.A. Mollison one of Canberra's first medical practitioners, who built the property to service the local area then known as Blandfordia. With a separate entrance for its home office wing, this fine home enjoys a prestige Manuka address that is in easy walking distance to shops, boutiques and restaurants and within close proximity to some of Canberra's finest schools, parklands, and the CBD.

At the rear, the residence offers a versatile studio space, plus a beautiful garden with two paved entertainment patios overlooking private established gardens and level lawn, as well as a sparkling in ground swimming pool.

A spacious upper-level offers generous accommodation with large bedrooms including a main with walk-in robe and adjoining library.
