83 Dunstan Street (also pictured above)
Price guide: $2.3 million +
5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 4 car spaces
A brand-new build in an established suburb is somewhat like an eclipse – it only comes around every so often, but when it does you can’t help but stop and admire its beauty.
The home at 83 Dunstan Street is certainly worth stopping for. Built to impeccably high standards, this house is not only full of quality finishes, but seemingly endless amounts of space, and dedicated rooms for almost every activity you can think of.
Starting at the home’s entrance room, the sheer size is impressive. Currently, it’s displayed as an art gallery and contains high arched ceilings, timber floors as well as offering privacy from the street front.
Inside the open-plan kitchen and living area will have you dreaming up ways to use the immense space. The suspended fireplace, large bench space and butler’s pantry will make entertaining family and friends a pleasure – as will the wine cellar.
There’s even a playroom upstairs, as well as both a games and media room downstairs.
A second entertaining space can be found outside, featuring a built-in gas barbecue. There’s also a heated pool and spa.

This home radiates timeless country charm thanks to its manicured formal-style gardens. It’s located on a level block and offers plenty of privacy for a young or growing family.
Meander along the stone pathway, enjoy the wisteria draped over the porch entrance and then enter to find warmth and comfort.
Inside, the property is light-filled and features expansive bay windows, parquetry and polished timber floorboards and a generous sunroom. The large lounge room features in-built cabinetry and a wood heater, perfect for lazing those cooler days away in peace and quiet.
During the warmer months, catch the breeze with a cool drink from the balcony on the upper level, while overlooking the gardens.
The home is also just moments from local shops, parkland and some of Canberra’s best schools.
