Canberra properties are selling like hotcakes and we folk at Allhomes just can’t seem to keep up.
In a rising market, where buyer demand is relentless, what we’re seeing is high competition in a pool of limited stock and dwindling days on market. Properties are selling prior to auction, some even before they hit the market.
If you’re a buyer competing in the crowd for your next dream home, we’ve done the hard yards for you to present some of the best new listings for sale – but no doubt they won’t be on the market for long!
This exceptional Peter Byfield-designed residence backing on to East Jerrabomberra Nature Reserve is nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac on a large block of about 1100 square metres.
The residence sits proudly among beautifully cared-for gardens and is exceptionally well presented with luxury appointments throughout.
There’s extensive use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows to take full advantage of the green vistas – sure to be a drawcard for buyers.
On the ground level, there are spacious lounge and dining rooms, a designer kitchen, four bedrooms, a huge master suite, laundry and alfresco area.
Upstairs there is a guest bedroom with second en suite and a large rumpus room with a games nook, which leads to a standing-height attic spanning the entire garage space.

As much as we adore a white picket fence here at Allhomes, modern marvels like this one put grandeur on display in a way that’s too hard to ignore.
Clean lines, crisp white interiors, and architecturally designed to boot. What more could you ask for? No.4 Fuller Street wows with the simplicity and sophistication we’ve come to love and expect from Deakin properties.
Spotted-gum hardwood timber flooring nicely offsets the minimalist colour palette and allows room for the direct northern sunlight to dapple and dance across the multiple living spaces.
But where this home’s true contemporary comfort shines is the master suite, complete with a walk-through robe that’s big enough to be a separate room.
When you throw in manicured gardens that look like they’ve been lifted from the pages of a high-end glossy magazine, and a covered pergola that’s fitted with an automatic rain-sensor shutting system, all of a sudden quaint cottages lose all their appeal.
Price guide: $2.165 million
