Canberra’s iconic boundary hedges offer its fortunate homeowners unrivalled privacy, and nowhere is this better than in the leafy Griffith sanctuary of No.2 Hayes Crescent.

Nestled behind lush foliage and the security of electronic gates is this wonderfully extended and renovated character home.

The original cottage was built in 1927, but since 1999 its owners have embarked on a quest to faithfully remodel it to the highest levels of contemporary living.

Designed by Peter Byfield, the home has not only delivered a warm and inviting family retreat, but it also has been recognised with a wealth of industry awards.

This entertainer’s house focuses on effortless indoor/outdoor connection and features an eight-metre heated in-ground pool and a whimsical gazebo retreat.
