Spectacular Elevated Home with Flair, and Views

Luxuriate in the high-end choices that this distinctive, elevated home constructed by award winning Better Building Services provides for work, rest and entertaining. Choose to host family and friends on the substantial front covered terrace and they will be wowed by the sunset views across to the Brindabellas as the burgeoning lights of the Woden Valley begin to punctuate the dusk.

Choose to entertain on the covered rear terrace and guests will enjoy the mellow poolside ambience where a year-round sunny aspect cultivates feel-good vibes.

There's also the option of indoor entertaining with a 10-seat open dining area artfully placed alongside a feature gas fireplace and assuring of warming winter conversations. Or go all out and use the picturesque, private front gardens for larger celebrations, such as a wedding.

The versatile floorplan and beautiful surrounds cater for it all. Downstairs, a truly enormous room with five windows onto the glorious gardens, a kitchenette and full bathroom has massive potential as an extra suite or home business.

Upstairs, a segregated bedroom wing includes a well-appointed sophisticated luxe family bathroom with massive two-person soaker tub and a second family room that leads to the rear terrace. The master bedroom, toward the front, has stunning views, a stylish dual-vanity ensuite and two walk-in wardrobes.
Set on a corner block a brief stroll from well-regarded schools, the Deakin medical precinct and with Federal Golf Course and Woden Town Centre nearby, the good life is calling at this spectacular home.
