Located close to the Turner/O'Connor border, this architecturally designed, circa 2003 Better Building Services home has been created with entertainment & enjoyment of living in mind. Nestled on a generous ¼ acre plot of land, the mature Viburnum hedge hugging the boundary allows residents & their guests to savour this sanctuary in privacy.
The glamorous, open-plan living areas are characterised by soaring 3.5-metre-high ceilings, both are large & flexible enough to allow banquet dining if the occasion demanded it. A slow combustion open firebox provides a finishing atmospheric touch. A covered courtyard protected from the elements divides the formal living space from the solar oriented family room & meals area. The western red cedar window frames & double glazing throughout accentuates the quality of this offering.
The artful kitchen provides an island bar with stone benchtop, perfect to either briefly rest a glass of Moet or provide the sturdy base for trays of hors d'oeuvres when entertaining. Quality cabinetry & 1.5-year-old Smeg appliances including a 1½ oven, 2 draw dishwasher, 4 burner gas cooktop & built-in microwave are as you would expect in such an abode. Close by is a wine storage room that houses 990 bottles with ease; adjacent is a beautiful Tasmanian blackwood display cabinet that stays with the home – as do the Vintec wine fridges.
A few steps up from the formal entry is the 5th bedroom, home office or even rumpus as it adjoins the segregated, sumptuous main bedroom suite. The main bedroom has ample room for a King-size bed with side tables, & the built-in media unit is a nice touch. The huge, naturally-lit, walk-in dressing room will excite & the luxurious ensuite with both shower & spa bath tops it off.
The secondary bedroom wing contains 3 very roomy bedrooms all with built-ins. A stylishly large main bathroom also serves this part of the home. Not far away is the laundry with provincial-style sink & internal access from the larger-than-average (44.5m2) double garage.
An intercom-controlled front security gate, remote-controlled driveway gate & internal sensor security system allows peace of mind. Superbly landscaped, Asian-influenced grounds will be a haven especially with its eclectic mix of small trees, shrubs & flowering plants. Alfresco dining should be the norm with all the balmy evenings ahead, you are sure to get good use of the protected outdoor kitchen & heated courtyard space. Guests will be spoiled for choice contemplating the best order to sample either the solar heated, self-cleaning pool, 4-person spa, or Finnish elm sauna.
Proximity to the local O'Connor shops, Civic, the ANU, Black Mountain nature reserve & a host of other amenities ensures a unique home such as this will always be in demand.
