Sophisticated Yarralumla living opposite parkland

Premium high-end interiors are the highlight of this elegant and stylish two-storey residence in a convenient pocket of Yarralumla opposite popular leafy parkland.

The spectacular living room is inviting and acts as the central hub of the home boasting a cosy fireplace, David-Trubridge-designed pendant light, and double-height ceilings punctuated by a mezzanine level where frameless glass balustrades reveal impressive built-in library shelving.

The mezzanine floor also offers an elongated study space with room for three workstations and leads to an upstairs master retreat where double doors open to a private balcony overlooking immaculately hedged formal gardens.

Downstairs a custom chef's kitchen accesses both a casual meals area and a covered alfresco dining space. The adjacent private living room provides a family entertainment opportunity leading out to a second alfresco area.

A stylish dining room at the front of the home offers views of the manicured courtyard and sparkling inground heated pool. The fourth private room on this level has internal and external access and an ensuite. This room offers fabulous versatility and can easily be used as a private fifth bedroom, a games room, or home office.

Two more of the home's five generous bedrooms are also on this level and are serviced well by a quality family bathroom.

The beauty of this ideal location is its proximity to uninterrupted walks along paths leading to Lake Burley Griffin, the vibe of Yarralumla shops, or a short stroll to playgrounds, sports courts, and Weston Park. Living here you'll also be a just a few minutes' drive to the city centre, and some of Canberra's top icons and reputable schools.
