Timeless French style with Canberra red-brick character

There's more than a touch of French Provincial style in this single-level family home opposite a reserve, yet there are elements exclusive to Canberra here too.

From its reclaimed Canberra red-brick fa├žade to its balanced proportions, this incredibly inviting home showcases a distinctive aesthetic finessed with a modern twist.

Warm, timeless interiors continue the French theme with timber trims playing against the elegant cream and white palette and exposed brickwork.

The architecturally designed u-shaped floorplan surrounds an immaculately landscaped private courtyard that provides the perfect setting for outdoor living.

The bedroom wing comprises three generous bedrooms, all with an outlook to the north-facing secure side garden. The lavish master suite is also in this wing, with access to the private side garden, plus views through to the central courtyard.

But it's the home's living areas that are the standout. A spacious formal lounge features a Sandstock-brick fireplace with sandstone mantlepiece and lintel, and granite hearth.

The generous meals and family room seamlessly connects with the outdoors, with floor to ceiling windows, raked ceiling with skylights, and doors that open out to the courtyard garden and alfresco dining space. Natural stone floors and a feature wall of old-Canberra red bricks add to the sense of comfortable tranquillity.

A spacious rumpus or studio room in the southern wing of the home has an attached stylish ensuite bathroom. This north-facing room could be re-purposed as a second master suite.

The chic galley-style kitchen has recently been renovated with inclusions such as stone benchtops, Perrin & Row tapware, travertine floors, Miele appliances, glass display cabinets and a picture window looking out to the courtyard garden.

Living here you'll be one block away from the Yarralumla Primary School, walking distance to Yarralumla and Deakin shops, and minutes away from the Canberra city and private schools. Buy this highly desirable home and bring a touch of European panache into your life.
