This home is one of the most visually striking in Yarralumla. Walk in through the custom made three-metre timber front door and you will be blown away by the sheer enormity of the home.
Across two levels there are three-metre-plus high ceilings, four living areas, a huge kitchen with butler’s pantry and four bedrooms, which are about double your average sized bedroom.
Of course, a home of this calibre is full of exceptional features and finishes, like an ash timber staircase with glass railing, tiger’s eye (semi-precious stone) splashbacks and hydronic heating on both levels.
The ground floor features a home office and a study, both of which have their own entry points – making them ideal for those running a business.
Outside things only get better with a gas-heated pool and spa, pool house and a huge, covered entertaining area.
