Blurring the lines between indoors and out


RZ2 development potential!

The designers of this two-storey home were ahead of their time. They approached the design of their garden in the same way as a house, laying out a sequence of secure outdoor rooms' created with hardscaped walls, paving, and discrete openings that take you into adjoining spaces with different themes, seasonal functions and sensory elements.

It's a throwback to the formal Victorian approach to garden design, but with a distinctively low-maintenance Australian edge; it elicits a tranquil, serene atmosphere far removed from urban bustle.

Whether you're entering the property through a door leading into an enormous walled courtyard garden, or accessing your own private, Japanese-themed courtyard through a sliding door in your downstairs master bedroom, the outdoor rooms seamlessly become an inviting extension of the interiors.

The largest of these outdoor rooms is the backyard with a new deck, new paving and fencing, a water feature and dedicated garden seating that's perfect for large gatherings.
It's ideally positioned off the kitchen which allows for easy preparation of food and drinks when entertaining family and friends.

Bamboo flooring in the bright north-facing kitchen and adjoining meals area are a nod to the natural greenery outside while also bringing warm tones to the space.

There's a separate formal dining room and living room on the ground floor, each with garden access, while upstairs the three additional large bedrooms and main bathroom have birds-eye views over the appealing landscape below.

If you crave even more nature, Lake Burley Griffin, Weston Park and the Royal Canberra Golf Club are all in walking distance. But you can also walk just a few minutes to the Yarralumla shops for everything urban life has to offer.
