Exquisite Modernist Residence

One of Canberra's finest modernist houses designed in 1960 by leading Canberra architect Bob Warren and superbly restored and renovated in 2005 by Architecture Association gold medallist, Enrico Taglietti. A spacious & light filled family home with superb Northerly views across to Black Mountain. Great living spaces, with separate upstairs and downstairs zones allowing different members of the family to pursue different interests. Three spacious bedrooms that are a joy to wake up in & study, with outlook into the trees, each bedroom with access to their own bathroom. A kitchen that is a delight to cook in with desirable Rossiere-Paul Bocuse double stove with hotplate, stainless steel benches and some Taglietti touches with a hand crafted blackwood bench and Mondrian-styled kitchen cupboards. Fine Attention to detail, from the lightwell over the staircase to the splendor of the main blue bathroom, and the finest letterbox in Canberra. The downstairs living room opens out onto back courtyard & garden for wonderful entertaining. Large sunny low maintenance garden designed by DSB architects to complement the modernist design. A Rare Offering.


Fabulous mid 20th century house designed by local architect Bob Warren and built in 1960

Completely gutted and rebuilt in 2005/06 by RAIA gold medal winning architect Enrico Taglietti (including new roof, all new wiring, plumbing etc)

The house measures a very large 245 square metres

Garden designed by DSB Landscape Architects and completed in 2007. It features Hydrocell underground irrigation, a system designed to ensure the garden thrives even during the most severe conditions

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (the main bathroom has double sinks, an enormous shower room and a large spa bath, all mosaic tiled to the ceiling)

4th bedroom/study/playroom

Large dining/living upstairs, rumpus room and laundry downstairs

Large main bedroom opens onto a decked area

Massive wall of northfacing glass provides incredible light and a huge window seat overlooks the back garden. There are two internal skylights, one that penetrates through the house's two levels

Kitchen has stainless steel benchtops and mirror splashback. There is a superb recycled blackwood kitchen table and Mondrian style storage cupboards, all de-signed by Taglietti

Hardwood Tasmanian ash floors upstairs, Italian porcelain tiles downstairs

Superb quality fittings throughout: frameless showerscreens, Green's tapwares, Caroma ceramic toilets, Antonio Citterio designed sinks, Rosiere Paul Bocuse dou-ble oven and gas cooktop, Miele dishwasher

Brivis ducted gas heating throughout the upper level and in-slab heating through-out the lower level. The northfacing aspect, however, means that the house stays cool in summer and maximises winter sun

Back to base remote controlled security system, colour video intercom system

Quality Luxaflex Duette blinds throughout the entire house (superb insulating quality)

5 television points, 3 internet connection locations, house cabled for Trans-act/Foxtel

Bus to Manuka/Parliamentary Circle/City 50 metre walk, 200 m walk to St Bedes Primary, 600 m to Red Hill Primary and shops or 600m to Canberra Grammar School
