"Blue Dome is a Canberra Icon"
It is only once in a blue moon that a Canberra icon like this comes on the market. Perfectly positioned across the road from leafy Telopea Park and just moments away from Lake Burley Griffin, Parliament House, the National Gallery, the Kingston Foreshore, Manuka and Kingston Shops, this spacious townhouse is as rare as hens' teeth.
Designed by the highly regarded Bryan Dowling, the 'Blue Dome' is renowned for their solid construction, unique blue skylights, an abundance of living areas and soaring ceilings. Stepping inside you will be taken aback by the natural light which floods each room, the greenery that is captured through floor to ceiling windows facing towards Gosse Street and the serenity that comes with having your own separately titled townhouse with only one common wall.
An expanse of parquetry floors covers the carefully laid out floorplan on the lower level which is highlighted by a spacious living area with direct access onto the northerly facing courtyard, separate formal dining area and a kitchen that has a lovely view of the rear courtyard.
In the middle of the property the large 'Blue Dome' skylight captures all day sun above the feature staircase which takes you to the second level. Here you will find a segregated master suite with walk in wardrobe, ensuite and balcony which provides both privacy and views across towards Lake Burley Griffin. The two rear bedrooms are both generously sized and both have built-in wardrobes. There is also a study area which is looks down through the void into the living area.
A garden home, which features not just one but two generously sized courtyards. One which makes for a fantastic area to entertain friends whilst enjoying the afternoon sun and is tucked away at the rear of the property. Having two courtyards sets a grand entry but also provides a sense of space and the ability to have beautiful cross ventilation in the summer.
Due to its garden feel but lack of continual maintenance and its Kingston locale it would be great for downsizers or a professional couple looking for a lock up and leave lifestyle.
