Every so often, an exceptional home comes along that recalibrates our understanding of what constitutes a grand design.
This superb Deakin residence manages to combine architectural and building excellence with an unrivalled location that enjoys a dress circle view of Parliament House.
A modernist- influence guided this Terry Ring design that was recognised with home of the year awards from the MBA and HIA. It comprises 834 square metres of living on a 1711-square-metre block.

The number “four” has a strong relationship with this residence: it pertains to its street number, and its levels, bedrooms and bathrooms. It also has an eight-car basement with multiple storage areas and a rooftop terrace to enjoy those amazing views.
In between, the magic continues. The ground level includes the formal living and dining areas along with the chef’s kitchen and access to the entertaining terrace and the in-ground, solar-heated pool and spa.
The main suite is on level one and – needless to say – it takes luxury to a new level with a dressing room, huge en suite and gym. This level also holds a sitting area, rumpus room and two of the bedrooms.
This is just one of the four bathrooms in the residence. Photo: Luton
