A home in the gardens

Perched high on the street in lusted-after Garran, this Willemsen-designed home is bursting with architectural brilliance and modern charm. 

Ray White Canberra licensed agent, Nicky Symon, says the house is perfect for “families who are wanting an architect-designed home in a quiet and elevated location”.

Designed in 1977, the home boasts numerous outdoor courtyards and lush views of its natural surroundings. Symon says there are views of the Brindabellas or the surrounding gardens from every window.

“This is a beautifully-maintained home with self-contained flat, nestled in a magnificent garden oasis that was selected to be a part of the Canberra 2019 Open Gardens scheme,” she says.

Inside, the split-level floorplan includes five bedrooms – four on the first floor and one in the self-contained flat adjoining the garage. The first floor also boasts a rumpus room, main bathroom and the master suite with walk-in robe and ensuite.

Downstairs is for living, with space for both everyday family life and entertaining. You will find a living room with magnificent fireplace as well as a separate library, dining and family rooms. The modern kitchen boasts a walk-in pantry and looks out to the immaculate gardens and the alfresco entertaining space.

The lush gardens come equipped with an automatic irrigation system and afford maximum privacy for the home as well as its own microclimate. The block takes advantage of all this location has to offer with direct access to the reserve behind.

“This is an elevated location backing onto Red Hill Nature Reserve with excellent proximity to some of Canberra’s best schools,” Symon says.
