Three minutes’ drive from the Prime Minister’s Canberra residence is this high-end home, architecturally designed and built with long-term family living in mind.
Selling agent Mario Sanfrancesco from Blackshaw in Manuka described 6 Hopetoun Circuit in the sought-after suburb of Deakin as “captivating”.
The four-bedroom, two-bathroom split-level home has been finished to a high level and that quality is generating plenty of buyer buzz, Mr Sanfrancesco said.
“You can tell the owners built it to live in themselves. It’s as good as anything I’ve seen in high-end homes,” he said.
Some of those designer finishes include magnificent hardwood flooring, artisanal bathroom tiles with heated floors, raked ceilings, and full-height windows.
The dark cabinetry of the show-stopping kitchen is contrasted by a Caesarstone rugged concrete waterfall island bench.
The sun-drenched sitting room with cathedral ceiling and picture window leads to one of two sunny courtyards.
The outdoor kitchen captures light and warmth with strategic skylights and travertine pavers. It overlooks a low-maintenance, landscaped garden of Japanese maples, with automated irrigation.
The main bedroom ensuite dazzles, with exposed beams, a soaking tub, and an enormous shower.
“The home is a coveted townhouse alternative for a family wanting extra space without extra work,” Mr Sanfrancesco said.
The property’s position, just metres from the thriving heart of Deakin, is also proving highly desirable, he added.
“Cafes, boutiques, a supermarket, doctors, lawyers, a gym, and a pool … everything you need is right there, across the road.”
