6 Wickham Crescent in Old Red Hill is one of the most significant residential property offerings of the year. It sits within arguably Canberra's most sought-after residential precinct and boasts a land parcel exceeding 8000m2.
An elegant residence sited within its own park-like grounds, on one of Canberra's largest blocks of residential land, has a sweeping semi-circular drive, large lawn areas, delightful mature plantings and woodlands.
The location is ultra-quiet with gentle elevation and glorious district and distant views. The spacious full brick home provides separate living and dining rooms plus a large family room area and a rumpus/games room suitable for a home theatre. There are 4 bedrooms all with built in robes and a study/possible 5th bedroom. The bright and functional kitchen enjoys an intimate courtyard outlook.
A relaxing spa room is a feature. There is an inground 13 metre solar heated salt water pool, surrounded by manicured hedges and a rose garden. A freestanding sun-drenched studio overlooks the pool and gardens.
Outstanding potential exists for further improvement/development with over 950m2 of permitted gross floor area and possible front setback of 20 metres (current dwelling setback about 52 metres) - subject to planning approval.
6 Wickham Crescent is within walking distance of Red Hill Reserve, the two Canberra Grammar Schools and the Manuka shopping precinct. The Parliamentary Triangle is nearby, and Canberra International Airport is an easy 15 minutes' drive.
