30 Mugga Way Red Hill
Mugga Way enjoys a reputation as "The Golden Mile" and it's not hard to see why with some of Canberra's most stately homes taking prime position. Street numbers almost seem inappropriate with many of these grand residences effectively occupying estate-sized blocks of land. Number 30, strongly influenced as it is by English Manor design and a signature series of impressive dormer windows.
This impressive residence sits on some 5110 square metres of rare earth, surrounded by landscaped gardens. A gated, dual access driveway welcomes visitors to a suitably grand entrance and into a home that embraces a visitor with a warm sense of history. Wonderfully aged timbers and panelling are a consistent motif throughout the home: Cedar windows, doors, high ceilings, bay windows and in one bedroom, a love seat. And, of course, other character features abound including high ceilings, French doors and more. As you enter the spacious foyer, to the left is a baronial-sized dining room that comfortably seats 22, including a small original open fireplace with light streaming through both Bay and colonial windows. On the other side of the hall is the formal lounge with open fire and stained-glass feature windows, big enough for a small cocktail party. Adjacent is a family room distinguished by a cedar ceiling with room for a reception.
The solid timber kitchen has a large granite bench top, stainless steel appliances and a walk-in pantry. This level also includes a timber panelled bathroom with a glorious marble benchtop, a study and a laundry. A timber staircase leads upstairs and into a comfortable sitting area. There are five bedrooms, two with updated stylish ensuites and a main bathroom, all with quality features. The guest room with one of those ensuites is generous enough to hold two king-sized beds and has a large BIR. Bedroom 2 could take a queen while its neighbours are generally king-sized with one highlighted by the love seat. The master bedroom has plenty of room and features a walk-in robe, a remodelled ensuite overlooking Red Hill with spa bath, timber shutters, marble vanity top, and a heated towel rail.
Guests staying for a weekend will enjoy outdoor pursuits including a full-sized, artificial grassed tennis court and a 16 x 7m tiled sparkling swimming pool with spa. Terraced established gardens surround the property which has private access to the adjoining Red Hill Nature Reserve. Other features include a built-in barbecue area, a conservatory style pool room with access to a wine cellar. This features timber floorboards with a large antique formal dining table. Incredibly, the wine storage system has number labelling for up to 460 bottles of wine.
The features don't end there with a separate apartment that offers a bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette. And, of course, there's plenty of vehicle space with a three-car garage that has an upstairs room for a game of pool, though snooker would be more at home in this English country manor.
