Iconic design in Red Hill


Nestled on a leafy street in one of Canberra’s most desirable suburbs, this unique property was once home to the iconic Beaver Galleries.

Blackshaw Manuka sales agent Christine Bassingthwaighte says this family home is the perfect place for “renovators, someone to build their dream home or get started in the Inner South”.

She says the blue-ribbon location is central to premium schools and close to all the amenities one could desire.

“[Red Hill is] a locale offering a choice of schools, public transport, local shopping centre and is situated within walking distance to popular cafes/restaurants in Manuka.”

Packed with unique design features, 9 Investigator Street boasts a number of distinctive inclusions, such as the open sandstone fireplace, solid Victorian ash timber flooring, timber feature ceilings made from Canadian Oregon timber and a sunroom with access to the garden. The home contains a mix of formal and informal living, and the fifth bedroom/study is separate with its own fireplace.

Further features include air conditioning, alarm system and separate laundry area, with an abundance of space for a range of requirements.

Outside, the established garden has four separate lawn areas, mature trees and a sandstone feature wall, as well as space for four cars in the double carport and double garage.

“Situated on a 1,042sqm north facing block, this iconic family home is offering an abundance of potential, either to occupy as-is or primed for renovations or to build your dream home,” Bassingthwaighte says. “Anything is possible in this home.”
