Modern magnificence


Set in Canberra’s blue-ribbon suburb of Yarralumla, this chic and contemporary home is just one of 33 in the suburb with direct frontage to Lake Burley Griffin, enjoying views across the reserve to the shore.

Independent Gungahlin senior sales agent Michael Wang says this home won the HIA ‘custom house of the year’ award in 1993 and has been recently updated with myriad modern design features and luxury inclusions. 

“It had a full renovation 18 months ago, with an extension,” he says.

Designed for entertainers, the meals and family space can accommodate 20 people, with the adjoining balcony perfect for warmer nights. The sleek and stylish kitchen will make preparation a breeze: it boasts a 900mm induction cooktop, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher, stone waterfall benchtops and an enviable butler’s pantry with copious amounts of storage, a sink, oven and the second cooktop. The large island bench is the perfect place for your morning coffee or drinks with friends – don’t forget about the under-house wine cellar.

With multiple living areas both inside and out, Wang says this home is ideal for those with a “busy lifestyle or multi-generational living”. The master suite includes a walk-in robe and ensuite, while the remaining four bedrooms, three on the lower level, include robes and are serviced by the stunning main bathroom.

Wang says the home, which includes family, living and rumpus rooms, as well as a formal dining room, “is fitted with every inclusion imaginable”, including American oak herringbone floors, 6.2m-high ceilings, electric fireplace, and an auto-irrigation system. Take in the breathtaking suburb and lake views from the balconies and expansive, architectural windows.
