Tucked away in a quiet, leafy street in Turner is this modern townhouse offering complete privacy spanning over two spacious levels.
There is a stunning floating staircase made of solid river gum wood and encased in a glass wall, this feature sets the tone for what you would expect from the rest of this property.
The living area is 89m2, which leaves plenty of room for entertaining, while large floor-to-ceiling sliding doors let in the sunlight from the courtyard.
With only three other homes in this boutique development, rarely do you see homes of this calibre come on the market in such an unbeatable location.

Designed in 1960 by architect RB Fitzgerald, this home has since been extensively renovated and landscaped into a retro-masterpiece, full of personality.
The restoration is the work of local interior designer Spacecadet, and showcases what can be achieved when love, passion and creativity are put into a home that could have simply been demolished years ago.
Each detail, no matter how big or small, has been thoughtfully considered for functionality and style.
High, flyover-style roofing and enormous windows ensure that no part of the vista is lost when looking out to the lush private gardens.
A bold, patterned tiled splashback in the kitchen provides serious wow-factor when entering the home.

This week we have two picks in Deakin and, as would luck have it, both on the same sought-after street.
Encompassing timeless charm and many endearing original features, this very well-presented, double-brick home has a large kitchen with breakfast bench, a large living and dining area with fireplace and pretty french doors opening into the hedged rear garden.
Friends will feel right at home, with plenty of areas to relax this summer including the wrap around decks and paved barbecue zone.
The front garden is delightful, with rows of established apple trees.

Allhomes top pick just across the border:
6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 car spaces
Built in the 1880s, Strawberry Cottage is situated in the heart of historic Gundaroo Village, with the local school and award-winning restaurants just a short stroll away.
Only a 25-minute commute from Canberra, the property comprises two residences nestled amid gorgeous gardens, complete with an in-ground saltwater swimming pool.
Both cottages ooze period charm with three-metre-high ceilings, hardwood floors, ornate skirtings and slow combustion fireplaces.
On the grounds are also established plantings of fruit trees, berries and currants, which provide a beautiful outlook from the paved area and timber deck.
There’s also architect-designed plans for future renovation and extension with DA approval.
