A distinctive and very stylish north-facing family residence with numerous stunning features also provides an outstanding location with expansive views overlooking the treed landscape of the Royal Canberra Golf Course and Westbourne Woods. Approaching the residence, you are welcomed via a magnificent ivy-covered entry porch to the sand-stone corners of the home and a roman patterned drive way, as if entering a private courtyard of a European country home with many hectares of beautiful open space.
The home looks over picturesque gardens with all year-round colour, which have been designed carefully to create a magnificent private sanctuary. Various classical and modern sculptures, a fishpond and terracotta pots have been discretely incorporated in and amongst lush garden greenery. An internal courtyard comes complete with a fernery.

Exquisite ornate solid Jarrah timber finishes include large architraves and skirtings, solid timber doors, built-in furniture and kitchen/family room floors. Extra high ceilings include a feature glass ceiling in the living area. The home is filled with opulent character and natural light is achieved through extra high windows.

The contemporary but elegant style kitchen offers Gaggenau and AEG quality appliances, stone bench tops and generous storage space. Plantation shutters are installed in kitchen, family, main bedroom and all bathrooms.
