Soak in style at this Wright wonder

Lap up the enticing views across the Molonglo reserve from the prime vantage point of the soaker tub in the main bathroom of this two-storey executive home and enjoy a transporting escape.

It is one of several vantage points to take in unobstructed and private views over the Molonglo River to Canberra city's iconic landmarks and major events, including the Balloon Spectacular and Skyfire. Another is the guest bedroom; an airy and spacious room with its own walk-in wardrobe.

This home has also benefitted from a meticulous upgrade by its master-tradesman owner to incorporate high-end finishes and amenities. Among them is an extended low-maintenance deck equipped with gorgeous foot-level feature lighting, and bench seating.

When combined with the existing stackable servery windows from the kitchen to the covered deck, it's an appealing al fresco space that takes full advantage of the north-facing rear yard and picturesque seasonal gardens.

The versatile ground-floor layout offers a chain of living spaces that rolls out from the front door all the way to the rear entertainment space. A formal lounge off the entry could easily be repurposed as a media room or teen retreat. A separate dining room is the prime spot for special occasions, while the casual living and dining spaces are open, generous and bright.

Upstairs, the palatial master has a family-sized ensuite that boasts an enormous double walk-in shower.

Mountain bike enthusiasts and hikers will love this home's proximity to Mt Stromlo trails while commuters will enjoy the amazing central location that puts them in easy reach of Belconnen, the city, Woden and Tuggeranong.
