Remarkable river valley views, resplendent mod cons

No other Canberra home enjoys the direct and unfettered northerly views up the Molonglo River than this luxe family residence showcases from its private corner block.
What is more astounding is that the murmuring waters are readily visible and alluringly audible across the front of the home's expansive single-level layout thanks to its elevation and prime position above the river bend just across the street.
It is a location that allows you to watch the sun rise and set from mountains in the east to those in the west and it is hard to believe you are less than 15 minutes from Canberra's CBD.
Inside, a wide entrance and hallway gives way to the formal lounge. Frameless and cantilevered corner windows offer an easterly view along the river to Molonglo Nature Reserve and beyond that, Black Mountain, giving you a plum spot to admire fireworks displays.
Brought to life through the vision and guidance of owner/builders who were seeking a custom sanctuary for them and their many extended family members and friends, this is clearly a home where entertaining is a natural part of everyday life.
A generous open-plan hub with raked ceiling incorporates a family and dining zone where full-height windows capture the best of the river valley views.
The space also takes in the chef's kitchen with a huge underlit island and oversized appliances that include a 900mm dishwasher drawer. An adjacent butler's pantry accommodates wine storage.
Italian wood-effect porcelain floor tiles seamlessly run through the living areas and out to the covered terrace where a catering-sized size outdoor kitchen overlooks the solar-heated swimming pool.
Off the family room is a custom home office with beautiful dual aspect over the front garden while the four bedrooms are privately cushioned away from the street. This includes the stylish master with its bespoke walk-through wardrobe, ensuite and private deck.
Also noteworthy is the walk-in linen cupboard off the hallway to the bedrooms where clever shelving makes it easy to store luggage, bedding and other bulky items.
This address is now truly the centre of Canberra, being equidistant from the Woden, Tuggeranong and Belconnen town centres as well as the Canberra Business District. The benefits of the Molonglo Valley lifestyle also include easy access to world-class recreation facilities like Stromlo Leisure Centre, Evelyn Scott and Charles Weston schools, Stromlo Forrest parks, trails, and retail centres.
