An Exquisite home of Neo Classical Architectural Style
This exceptional home is a show stopper, sure to impress and has been featured in Home Beautiful and Australian Open Garden scheme! Beyond the electric gate is a very beautiful, classic but modernist-influenced home set amongst formal, lush gardens. A touch of Tuscany is evident at the first glance, seamlessly combined with a sophisticated style and balanced with a sense of tranquillity and sanctuary within its private grounds.
Designed by Modo Designs, the residence has been crafted to the highest quality to create a timeless appeal. Innovative thought has gone in to every aspect and detail throughout the home. Timber floors, shutters, soothing colours and textures create atmosphere and a sunny northerly orientation optimises light and space, and is highlighted by garden views from every room.
The first pleasant surprise is the intricately designed landscaping, a masterly balance of carefully selected trees and plants. These are contrasted with sand stone paver steps that lead to the entry of the home. A central courtyard is positioned around three sides of the home, carefully considered to ensure the home has privacy, sunlight and a stunning aspect from every angle. Laid with sand stone pavers, amongst ivy covered feature walls, a stunning pool with swim jets as well as a plumbed-in gas BBQ provides the most welcoming outdoor setting to unwind and relax or entertain family and friends.
The open plan kitchen and living area is clearly the heart of the home and designed to be comfortable, and a home which is lived in and used every day, with no wasted space. Generously proportioned and emphasised with coffered ceilings, the living area enjoys its own sense of space, a open gas fireplace, and a picturesque outlook onto a terrace overlooking the front garden and leafy aspect to Red Hill. An impressive, well-equipped kitchen features high-end Miele appliances, marble bench tops and ample storage.
The master bedroom suite provides a lovely view into the courtyard, with a walk-in robe and two-way ensuite, shared with the second bedroom. An additional third bedroom has its own private ensuite with access to the front terrace - perfect for guests.
The low-maintenance yet formal garden is private and beautifully established. Concrete stairs lead downstairs to the laundry, powder room, oversized double garage and a spectacular wine cellar built to store 1800 bottles - ideal for the wine connoisseur.
Deakin is highly sought-after, conveniently located with just walking distance from the Deakin shops and cafs. It's also within proximity to Kingston and Manuka Precincts, Lake Burley Griffin and the City. It is also very close to various highly regarded schools.
Perfectly suited for those seeking a luxurious, and more relaxed lifestyle.
