To say Canberra’s real estate industry has been a roller-coaster ride these past few days doesn’t seem to do justice to the tumultuous pace of our rapidly changing market and how we’re hanging on tight.
We know one thing for sure, that the calibre of homes on the market is still high and recent robust clearance rates indicate that there are buyers searching and willing. We hope that if you are in the financial and emotional position to buy or sell, that you’ll continue on that path.
This weekend, we shine a light on Canberra’s most beautiful properties for sale. Boot up the Allhomes app and browse through these new homes on the market, some of which you can virtually inspect via agents offering Facetime tours or book into a private appointment.
Number 4 Maiden Street can best be described as part-boutique European hotel and part-contemporary home. It has a certain class and character that make it timeless, luxurious and a pure joy to be in.

In particular, the floor-to-ceiling curved window near the kitchen – which looks out to the fishpond – will draw you to the space, no matter how reluctant you might be about cooking.
Upstairs, the fourth bedroom acts as a multipurpose room. Full-length glass doors open to a spacious Juliet-style balcony with an outlook to beautiful parkland that adjoins Lake Burley Griffin.
Outside, the entertainment area set under a canopy of wisteria will give you the perfect space for hosting family and friends (just as soon as we’re allowed to do so again).
