Iconic Pettit + Sevitt Family Home
Celebrating Modernist principles and the design delights of a calmer era, this four bedroom plus study home showcases the warm timber tones, exposed beams and architectural details that celebrate a Pettit + Sevitt residence. Nestled into its beautiful leafy block, the home radiates a comforting sense of ease and welcome from the moment you step inside.
Offering a rare opportunity to secure a highly sought-after icon of Australia’s pioneering architects of the 1960’s and 1970’s, 25 Spalding Street showcases the Pettit & Sevitt philosophy of building simple, functional, modern houses that conform to the lay of the land. Clever zoning of living areas, natural light and minimal corridors maximise the use of the internal space and create a wonderful sense of flow throughout all areas of the tri-level home.
Walking into the home past the large private front courtyard garden, alive with colourful flowers and serene greenery, into the light-filled entry is a feast for the senses. Opening to a sun-filled dining room on one side, and a spacious updated kitchen and meals area on the other, both rooms enjoy morning light and an outlook over a private courtyard garden and the antics of the visiting birds. A welcoming space, the updated stylish kitchen has the charm of a cottage kitchen with all of today’s benefits including abundant bench and storage space, quality appliances, a new oven, and easy outdoor access for the adjacent laundry.
The characteristic design of the home draws you downstairs to a second living level that spreads out across the width of the house. Living zones are suggested here with a library/reading area tucked away next to the stairs, and the sitting room soaking up the views that come pouring in from the expansive deck and back garden. The study, large enough to be used as a fifth bedroom or playroom, can be separated by closing the door when working.
Upstairs, the bedrooms, updated main bathroom and ensuite are all awash with light. The outlook from the upper level, over the leafy delights of the stunning back garden, towards the hills is delightful. All the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and are generously sized, with raked ceilings adding to the sense of space and light. The master bedroom comes complete with an ensuite.
Outside, the large timber deck is an expansive platform, surrounded by the flowing beauty of the natural bush-style garden that meanders down the block. A relaxing shady haven in the summer and perfect year-round outdoor entertainment area, the deck extends down to the trails dotted around the garden.
A bush-style haven, the established garden is an easy-care work of art, lovingly created over the years by the current owner. Children will love exploring and running around playing games there while younger children have plenty of flat space in the secure front courtyard to ride their tricycles and play outside, all while being supervised from the kitchen.
With the walking trails of the Mount Rogers Reserve just a stroll away, and easy access to Kingsford Smith Drive, local shops Belconnen Town Centre and public transport, all ages and stages of schooling options are close by.
An appealing and spacious family home and an architectural icon whose design benefits have stood the test of time – don’t miss it.
