Retro revival in Cook




Travel back in time with this iconic family residence in the North Canberra suburb of Cook. Blackshaw Belconnen principal Matt Sebbens says “the classics never die”, and predicts many a prospective buyer will “fall in love with this ‘70s masterpiece”.

Situated in the heart of the Cook, Sebbens says this home is an “expansive and truly unforgettable residence sprawling across 330sqm of living and set on a large, private 920sqm block”.

“This is a rare opportunity to secure a property of this calibre after almost 50 years with the original owners – a local family that have poured endless creativity and painstaking attention to detail into the home’s design and high quality finishes,” he says.

With five bedrooms, multiple living areas and huge garage, Sebbens says this home is ideal for the “decisive purchasers”, whether they be large or growing families, or those with an appreciation for the home’s iconic style.

“Surrounded by quality schools, [the home is] minutes to the revitalised Cook Shops and Jamison Centre, and just a short road trip to Belconnen Town Centre or Canberra City,” he says.


“With internal living spread over two levels, segregation and space for each member of the household is a reality.”

“The staggering upper level is an entertaining hub,” says Sebbens, boasting formal and casual spaces, open bar and lounge area, balcony with views to Black Mountain, large separate dining area and fifth bedroom/rumpus or home office. On the lower level are three large bedrooms, bathroom, another living area, cellar and internal access to the garage.

 Beautifully maintained, this home includes no shortage of unique, quirky features that pay homage to its era and the quality of construction – it even has a fireman’s pole!

“Part of the original design and build, it was installed for the kids to take themselves to bed at the end of the day and remains a favourite feature for those who have inspected the property thus far,” says Sebbens.
