Peerless family living awaits within this stunning luxury home perched atop one of Canberra's highest elevated residential land parcels. Capturing magnificent panoramic views from across the Brindabella Ranges to Telstra Tower, this beautiful expansive 405m2 residence has been expertly designed by Peter Byfield.

Upon arriving at No 21, you are instantly greeted by the warming bright sunlit ambiance of the home. The owner of this property has gone to great lengths to ensure that the principles of feng shui played an important role in the design of the residence, resulting in a magnificent home full of special features.

Sculpted expertly into the rising slopes of the 1439m2 block, this spectacular north-facing home and its lush, beautifully, and lovingly manicured tiered gardens, backing Amber Ridge reserve, have been merged into a perfect union of indoors and out, with the substantial deck acting as the conduit for the seamless transition.

A timber bridge, with splashes of colourful flowers and greenery lay on either side with calming water under artfully connects the driveway to the front door.

Upon entry, you will find a massive 70m2 rumpus room/bedroom with an ensuite and a separate access, or, alternatively, this apartment-size room could be used as a teenager's retreat, extended family or to rent out for an additional income.

Upstairs, enjoy oversized open plan living under high ceilings, with the impressive granite kitchen and walk-in pantry at the heart of the home and living areas, providing ample space for guests, children and teenagers alike. Both the family and living areas open out to a huge deck with outstanding views. Here you have the opportunity of entertaining indoors or outdoors as both feature the same spectacular vistas.

Three of the bedrooms, including the large master bedroom featuring ensuite and walk-in robe, are located at the left wing as is the main bathroom. From the living room, a set of steps provide access to the split-level accommodation to bedrooms four and five/games room, the latter of which showcases a kitchenette. Both rooms share a bathroom at this level. Again, this wing offers many different usage options including, a home office, guest accommodation, teenagers' retreat, etc.

An abundance of natural light radiates throughout the residence through the multiple glass windows and doors, and each room offers an inspiring view, including all five bedrooms.

Relax throughout the year with a multitude of outdoor areas, from the spacious deck to the amazing tiered gardens offering paved and decked spaces for entertaining, each with views across Canberra and within private manicured gardens.

Exceptional proportions are showcased by quality finishes creating an ambience that is contemporary, refined, and luxurious.

This exquisite, quality-built, one-of-a-kind home requires nothing but enjoyment of its many wonders and is the perfect haven for a growing family, the entertainer or someone who enjoys lifestyle living.
