    Amongst the gum trees...yet so close to the City! A home with mountain views, light and space, with a home office.

    This impressive, well designed five bedroom three bathroom home is situated in a peaceful, central location near Mount Ainslie. A masterful extension of the original, privately built, red Canberra brick house has created a contemporary, large and inviting family home, with high-end finishes, while preserving the character of the period. The steeply pitched Colorbond roof adds to the exceptional street appeal, complemented by a graceful eucalypt amidst native gardens. The northerly aspect allows winter sunlight to flood living, front bedrooms and outdoor areas.

    Step into the entry and experience the ambience of earlier times, in the double brick construction, high ceilings and original interior doors, carefully restored. One of these opens to reveal the massive open plan, living area extension! Here, large windows frame the outlook over native gardens and all windows are furnished with honeycomb blinds. A cosy, gas log fireplace is a focal point, while the warmth of underfloor heating and stunning large floor tiles, can be enjoyed right through living areas. On the other side of the fireplace is a roomy study area. Flowing on, the generous dining space allows for many guests and features an elegant pendant light, this leads on to the generous informal living area which seems to have magnetic appeal for the family and includes a long breakfast bar to one side and stylish wall mounted cabinetry with a glass display unit opposite. These benchtops are finished in eye catching white stone, inlaid with Venetian glass. Sunlight pours into the fabulous, large, MMM Interiors-designed kitchen where the refreshing colour schemes continue, from the vibrant Italian marble splashbacks, to the stone benchtops and cupboard doors. Appliances include a Miele stainless steel oven, a gas cooktop and dishwasher with a large walk in pantry and a wine fridge. From informal living, double glass doors open onto an elevated timber deck, basking in sunlight, with a private view over the screened native gardens. This area also has access to a third stylish bathroom, incorporating the laundry, with identical finishes to the main bathroom.

    Bedrooms are sensationally large, with three situated off the entry, these retain old world character and feature many sash windows, but offer the modern comfort of wall heaters and large built-in robes. Leadlight glass adorns the door of the adjacent, modern bathroom which offers a bath and stone benchtops inlaid with Venetian glass. On the upper level, a sunny living area, and parents retreat offers a study nook, opens to two light filled, oversized bedrooms with huge walk in robe, the luxurious bathroom that services this level is equipped with dual vanities, a rain shower, heated towel rail and underfloor heating. The sitting area and bedrooms all have glass doors opening onto an elevated deck that offers treetop views from every window with Mount Ainslie appearing as your back drop from one side and views through to Mount Majura from the other, you will be amazed. Bedrooms and sitting area are equipped with stainless steel ceiling fans, slimline energy efficient wall heaters and honeycomb blinds.

    The main living room opens onto a fantastic, split-level rear deck, sheltered by a eucalypt and native gardens, perfect for relaxed entertaining, paving leads to a large, light and airy home office with high raked ceilings and a bright, separate studio. Both are clad in Colorbond with insulation while the office features cedar window frames, built-in shelving, desks, three-phase power, internet connection and a Panasonic dual mode air conditioner. There is also the possibility of installing plumbing if the need arises. Behind the office and studio are three raised veggie beds, a garden shed and there is a 4,000 litre water tank.
