Luxury Contemporary Living in Yarralumla
This magnificent as-new contemporary style home in Yarralumla is designed by Architect Paul Tilse, and offers a refined and balanced approach to optimising light and space. Innovative architecture combined with quality landscaping provides an exceptional home suited to people of all ages and demographics.
Special attention to detail and luxurious finishes cater for warmth and comfort throughout every season. Its design - inside and out - is meticulous, inspired and provides contemporary living at its very best. An interior designer's influence is evident through sophisticated selections including softening timber finishes and landscape planting choices. This professional touch has created a home with character, and a tranquil garden setting with symmetry.
At the front of the home a substantial timber door impacts and uniforms beautifully with continuous European Oak timber flooring in all main living areas. Northerly orientation and floor to ceiling glass captures sun and light, and also reveals glimpses of garden greenery from different aspects of the home. The formal lounge room incorporates custom shelving, and provides a place of peace to relax overlooking a private front courtyard. An unexpected treat is a discrete study nook adjoining the lounge area, and combines a workspace with the benefit of natural light.
Central to the home, and integral in connecting the outdoors is a charming open plan living arrangement with a kitchen, dining and family area, particularly spacious and sun-drenched from the rear. The use of concealed timber sliding doors in the open plan living space achieves privacy and cosiness, as well as sustainable warmth in the winter months. A stunning designer kitchen is emphasised with timber feature panelling, stone kitchen bench and breakfast bar, Matte Black tapware and premium quality Miele appliances, including an integrated fridge.
An outdoor covered alfresco space with built-in bbq and stone bench top flows effortlessly from the living room's impressive glass sliding doors, providing a superb weather-protected entertaining area all year round.
The generously sized master suite has a walk-in robe fitted with high quality joinery, attached to a striking luxe ensuite with twin concrete vanity basins, timber highlights, and a walk-in shower and free-standing bathtub. Two large bedrooms follow with custom built-ins, sharing a main bathroom with floor-to-ceiling porcelain tiles and built in bath. The fourth bedroom also with its own bathroom, is positioned at the front of the home and is perfectly placed for guests or possibly a home office.
This property will appeal to all families, professional couples and downsizers who want to live centrally. Yarralumla is arguably one of the most desirable locations in Canberra, close to Lake Burley Griffin, the Royal Canberra Course, and Government House. It is also within close proximity to various schools, the Parliamentary Triangle, Yarralumla and Deakin shops.
