The Canberra suburb of Nicholls is well known for its grand family homes, and 12 Minter Place is no different. Set on a 1,087sqm block in Harcourt Hill, this home offers buyers a uniquely elegant family home, directly opposite the nature reserve and with sweeping views of Canberra.

“Architectural influences and dramatic focal points grace every corner of this substantial five-bedroom home,” says Peter Blackshaw Gungahlin principal, Michael Braddon. “This home truly offers astute buyers something very special.

“From sprawling entertaining spaces and multiple balconies that showcase stunning views, to a voluminous grand foyer and luxurious master suite hidden away behind French doors with two built-in robes and spa, this 552sqm residence is a haven that has been built to exacting standards.”


Braddon says the home has over 296sqm to offer, perfect for “entertainers or those with a large family”, who will also love the “outstanding pool room located on the lower level of the home, complete with its own spacious living area, large bar, kitchenette, hot tub, sauna, bathroom, large bedroom/multi-purpose room and access to the lush backyard”.

The home’s unique design can be appreciated from both inside and out, with architectural influences visible throughout. The grand entranceway, complete with soaring ceilings, stunning skylights and a water feature, set the tone for the grand elegance of the home.

The upper level plays host to the master suite, three bedrooms, the kitchen, lounge and meals area as well as separate dining and lounge spaces and a wraparound balcony. The lower level features the garage, fifth bedroom/study, the inclusion-packed rumpus and plenty of storage space.

Outside, the gardens have been landscaped, and there’s a built-in barbecue area for dining under the stars.

“Complementing this elegant home are all of the extras you would expect from a property of this calibre, including triple garage (one side tandem) with internal access, in-slab heating, ducted vacuum, security alarm system, stunning landscaping and a quality crafted water feature in the grand foyer,” Braddon says.

“Opposite nature reserve, but with city views and positioned at the end of a cul-de-sac in blue-ribbon Nicholls – there’s nothing quite like this beautiful blend.

“To top it off, Gold Creek Country Club, local shops and schools are all within walking distance.”
