Magnificent Residence with a Self-Contained Flat in a Blue-Chip Location

Backing parkland and positioned in a blue-chip location on a large parcel of land of 1023m2, this distinctive 6-bedroom residence has had stylish upgrades and extensions for versatile family living and entertaining whilst retaining its classic features.  
Defined by its flexible floorplan and its bright north-easterly aspect to living areas, this gorgeous home of exceptional proportions, streaming with natural light, is further enhanced by the ambience created through the mature and private gardens.
The main entry opens to reveal a large living room with beautiful parquet flooring with glass doors opening out to the covered entertaining deck overlooking the substantial garden.
Steps to the left of the main entry lead up to a new, open-plan kitchen overlooking the family and dining area. Two bedrooms, including the alternate master bedroom with a parents' retreat/study, new two-way bathroom, and a walk-in linen cupboard are also located at this level.
Located on Level 2 (rear) is a huge fourth bedroom with an adjacent new bathroom while on Level 2 (front) is the second master bedroom with a study/parents retreat and a walk-in-robe. This bedroom has been previously used and wired as a media room. Bedrooms five and six are at the rear of the home and form part of the separate flat, with its own kitchen, living and dining room, large bathroom, and private access. The flat opens out to the beautiful outdoor entertaining area and spacious garden. The home has been recently painted and features a blend of natural timbers including parquetry flooring as well as a myriad of traditional touches, lending an enchanting old-world charm. Set in iconic Griffith, just a short walk across parkland to Canberra Grammar School, and the boutique precincts of Manuka and Kingston, this Inner South treasure is ideal for a large or extended family, including elderly parents who can have a two-fold benefit by living with their family but still enjoying their own privacy and independence. A gem not to be missed.
