A Red Hill property described as having a timeless elegance is expected to fetch more than $4 million.
The home at 4 Charlotte Street was master crafted by the owner-builder as the family’s long term home but a recent business decision led to the listing of the home on the market.
It was designed by award-winning Oztal Architects and interiors were completed by Sydney-based interior designer Danny Glavan.
The five-bedroom home, which sits on a 1682 square metre block, features a purpose-built home movie theatre with an overhead projector and eight reclining theatre chairs, and a dance studio with a Harlequin tarquette sprung dance floor. There is also a 600-bottle wine cellar, a 35-litre water storage tank, and a heated in-ground pool.
Sales agent for the property Albert Stavaruk from Peter Blackshaw Manuka said Charlotte Street and the surrounding area held a number of magnificent homes but this one was truly something special.
“It really is a sensational home to be in, the pictures don’t really do it justice,” he said.
Number 4 Charlotte Street, Red Hill is available for offers over $3,950,000 through Peter Blackshaw Manuka agents Albert Stavaruk and Ryan Stavaruk.
Home to reel in a new family
A contemporary-style four-bedroom home with sweeping views will go under the hammer as a Weston Creek couple downsizes.
Michael and Brenda Kidd bought the home about a decade ago after walking through it at the first open inspection.
Mr Kidd said they just fell in love with it on first glance.
“I think it was on the market for about a day or so,” he said. “It’s the style of the house that you either like or you don’t.”
He said the home had been constructed by a Finnish builder and had a European feel to it with flat lines and timber detailing.
The corner-block home on Eleanora Street in Fisher has spacious open-plan living, a new gourmet kitchen, polished Australian hardwood floors, a spa in the backyard and well-established gardens.
After living in Weston Creek for close to two decades the couple decided to move just around the corner from their home in Fisher.
The couple hopes to have more time for travelling and gardening in their new scaled down home.
Number 31 Eleanora Street, Fisher will be auctioned on Saturday, September 7 at 12 noon through Luton Properties Weston Creek agents Christopher Chilvers and Duncan Macdonald.
A new country beckons
A move overseas to the sunny shores of Thailand has led to a decision to list a stunning designer home in Forde on the market.
The architecturally-designed four bedroom home features open living areas, a gourmet kitchen and a covered alfresco dining area – with a mounted television – that overlooks an in-ground saltwater pool with a waterfall and landscaped gardens.
Owners Erik and Tamara purchased the four-bedroom property in Cleggett Street about three years ago.
The owners had planned to stay in their “forever home” but had recently decided to leave Australia. “We will miss the ease of living in such a high spec, gorgeous home,” they said.
The home at 15 Cleggett Street in Forde is available for offers over $775,000 through Southern Property Canberra agent Adrian Southern.
New price for Waramanga
A new record price was set for a home in Waramanga last weekend during a tightly contested auction.
The home at 21 Damala Street attracted a large crowd interested in seeing what the completely transformed four-bedroom home would sell for.
The Weston Creek home, which was on a 900 square metre block, sold under the hammer for $810,000.
Luton Properties Weston Creek sales agent Duncan Macdonald said there had been 13 registered bidders for the property, which sold in excess of the reserve.
According to Australian Property Monitors data the previous record for the suburb was the private treaty sale of 14 Badimara Street, which sold for $750,000 in July last year.
