Striking solar-passive executive family home with views

Crafted to impeccable standards with dedicated attention to bold design and solar-passive principles, this TT Architecture (Tony Trobe)-designed home offers the ultimate in contemporary family living in a coveted, elevated location backing a reserve.

Distinctive curved exterior features signal that you've arrived somewhere special, and those feelings are cemented when you step inside the home's impressive front door and Jarrah staircase to the main living areas.

Here you'll find a formal living and dining room with custom cabinetry, and an oversized family and meals space where a feature wall with a granite slab inset retains the sun's warmth and a high curved ceiling adds a wow factor.

Outdoor entertaining spaces on three sides include a balcony off the living room that provides expansive views towards the Woden Town Centre and Brindabella Range.

There's also a covered deck to one side of the room, and a north-facing patio looking over extensive landscaped gardens to the other. Premium double-glazed sliding doors provide seamless indoor-outdoor functionality while letting in plenty of winter sunshine.

The large master bedroom also benefits from access to the patio, providing great opportunities to start the day with a morning workout, yoga or a quiet tea or coffee. Two generous additional bedrooms are on this floor, plus there's a self-contained downstairs flat with its own bedroom, walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and services ready to go for a kitchenette.

One of the appealing features of this home is being within walking distance of Hughes and Curtin shops, Red Hill Nature Reserve, Hughes Primary School, Alfred Deakin High School and Canberra College. Another is that it takes just five minutes to drive to any one of three hospitals, Woden Town Centre, embassies and Parliament House.
