Unique inside and out

Like a remembered love affair, this enigmatic home is as groovy as it is full of character. Located in the foothills of Mount Taylor, this mid century, modernist home features an immensely flexible floorplan with five bedrooms, three bathrooms and ample living space with plenty of room for an extended family.

The unique and well thought out design sees this double brick home feature a clever U shaped, sun orientated floorplan to capitalise on the natural elements. Bamboo floors, exposed rafters and gas fireplace builds character while the large picture windows create a light filled home. Exposed brick walls have been created from old rescued Canberra bricks adding to the story of the house and incorporating local history.

A large Scandinavian inspired living area curves around the garden, bringing the outdoors in and creates a warm and sunny environment. The spacious Danish kitchen hugs the dining area and is undoubtedly the heart of the home. Imagine having ample space to entertain guests or supervise homework while you are cooking dinner and sharing the events of your day with friends and family. This area has some added magic with stained glass windows and a design that you just won’t find anywhere else.

Thinking outside the box, the floor plan is suited to having a separate granny flat for extra income or multigenerational family living, a home office or even a beanbag retreat. The beauty of this home is that it will adjust to your needs whatever they might be. For your convenience, the home currently features two separate bathrooms and an ensuite all renovated in 2011. As well as the gas fireplace, you will find a reverse cycle unit located in the master for year round climate control.

Outdoors, there is an established garden which is both private and sunny with views of Mount Taylor. A path leads around to the double garage which would make a good workshop. There is access from the backyard to the pathway leading to Mount Taylor Nature Reserve only a 5 minute walk way. In the other direction, it is only a short 5 minute walk to Montessori, Sunshine Supermarket and Biginelli Cafe.

Set in a beautiful green neighbourhood, with only one traffic light and a 15 minute drive of spectacular scenery to get to the city, this location is the perfect place to reinvent and discover your groove. Flexible and unusual with quality and character don’t let this beauty get away.
