A touch of Tuscany


front of home

This Tuscan-style home in Giralang has been owned by the same family since the 1970s, and McGrath North Canberra sales agent Sam McGregor says it’s “as unique as they come”.

“This home is suited to any family that wants space, privacy and room to grow,” he says.

“This is a forever home that no family could ever grow out of – the backyard is perfect for young children; the downstairs space is perfect for Grandma, or those same young children when they grow into teenagers.”

Set on a “huge” block, high on “the street to live on in Giralang”, 42 Baracchi Crescent enjoys views across North Canberra to the Brindabellas.

“The house itself sits on the rear of a battle-axe block – which for this property, is a major benefit,” McGregor says.


“It sits above most of, it not all of the street, backs well-kept parkland and reserves, and is both amazingly private and easily accessible.”

The home boasts five bedrooms, myriad living spaces both upstairs and down, and a back garden filled with lawns, fruit trees and flowers.  

“Photos do not do this home justice – it presents as it did the day it was built,” says McGregor. “Lovingly preserved, this is a turnkey ready to be lived in as is or updated at its new owner’s leisure. Nothing needs to be done – but everything can be.”

He notes the increasing popularity of Giralang; “on the cusp of a boom because of its proximity to the City centre”.

“Its neighbouring suburb Kaleen has a seen a dramatic upswing in price in the last 12 months, and buyers are looking toward Giralang because of the comparative value it presents.”
