This tantalising home in Yarralumla's embassy pocket – is not only part of Canberra's design pedigree but enchants those who currently live there. Revered and increasingly rare, this is a residential example of architect extraordinaire Enrico Taglietti's European-influenced modernist works and sits on a massive 1688m2 block just minutes from Lake Burley Griffin.

Much loved for its low-slung geometric lines, park-like private front garden and incredible north-facing blue-sky views to the rear, this home designed in the late 50's is understated from the street but has a deceptively large floorplan. More recent extensions have introduced a rumpus or mammoth fifth bedroom with separate entrance, dual aspect, its own wet room and kitchenette. The extensions also include a sunken parents' retreat replete with private dressing/sitting room, custom wardrobe with shoe and handbag storage, and huge ensuite featuring Roman-bath-style archways.

The stunning main living room is all - Taglietti. With raked ceilings and an orientation that frames the northerly vistas and captures the best of the sun, it uses glass to artistic effect: a slimline window frames sculptural outdoor plantings while an original 2.9m sliding glass door opens to an alluring rear terrace space that benefits from a timber-lined ceiling, echoing the home's signature broad eaves.

The incredibly bright and sunny kitchen has had more contemporary updates to incorporate custom storage, granite benchtops and modern appliances. There's adjacent dining space for a ten-seat table while French doors from the kitchen to the new Merbau deck outside offers great amenity for entertaining and access to the firepit.

This home's superb location places it within Yarralumla's prestigious embassy precinct, close to shores of Yarralumla Bay, a short drive to the National Triangle, Canberra's CBD and a range of top schools.
