Home full of light and character, offering space and superb entertaining in historic lakeside suburb!
In a peaceful street, set amidst native gardens, this charming, light filled home awaits your discovery. Architect designed extensions have sensitively developed this weatherboard treasure dating from the 1950's into a spacious home with spectacular features, offering modern comfort and finishes, separate living areas, four bedrooms and a study.
From a sheltered front porch, the original glass front door opens to a wide entry. This offers a striking perspective of the layout and generous dimensions of the home, bathed in light, enhanced by fresh white decor. To the left, through an original glass panelled door is a dedicated study / home office, with extensive bookshelves, a fast NBN FTTC connection and two external phone lines.
Stunning Sydney Blue Gum flooring is showcased on this level, illuminated by LED downlighting. The contemporary kitchen offers a garden window, extensive stone bench tops, a gas cooktop and stainless steel oven, dishwasher and pantry. Renovated with identical, quality finishes, the adjacent laundry is fitted out with stone benchtops and generous storage. A gas wall furnace and ducted evaporative cooling promote comfort.
Three timber steps fan out to living space on the lower level, where the inspiration of the architect is displayed in the tall, north facing wall of cedar windows, glass doors and Canberra red bricks in an energy efficient design, featuring reverse brick veneer and trombe walls, one of the distinctive elements of the home! The slate flooring, integral to the passive solar design, connects seamlessly with the entertaining area. A cosy, Eureka slow combustion wood heater ensures solid winter warmth, while honeycomb blinds provide insulation throughout.
The separate formal lounge, situated in the original core of the home, retains the ambience of times gone by in the wall of lovely sash windows, which frame a restful outlook over the front garden. A sense of time is particularly present in two of the downstairs bedrooms, with picture rails and original sash windows. Quality wool carpet is laid through the formal lounge, all bedrooms and the study. Presented in excellent condition, the main bathroom includes a bath, while a third spacious bedroom is equipped with an ensuite bathroom.
The uppermost level of the home holds another striking discovery! A curved corrugated ceiling, studded with LED downlighting, arches over the luxuriously proportioned master bedroom, which offers modern walk-in storage, a Juliette balcony, ensuite and study nook. Glass and cedar windows frame elevated views north to Black Mountain tower and over the garden, which has at its centre a tall, slender eucalypt.
The outlook over the bushland garden is a highlight of the informal living, which flows onto the outdoor entertaining area, where Canberra red bricks are arranged in an eye-catching semi-circular pattern. A weatherboard garage with auto door, a quaint original garden shed, secure parking for a trailer or caravan, a 4,000 litre water tank and raised veggie beds complete this delightful home.
From this premium location, it is a short stroll along leafy streets to cafes, restaurants, IGA supermarket and professional suites in Yarralumla or Deakin, Yarralumla Primary and Girls Grammar. Parliament House and the City are just a short cycle or drive. Many scenic swimming, picnic spots and paths along the shoreline of the Lake Burley Griffin make this historic suburb one of Canberra's most beautiful, and this unique home offers you a special place in it.
