Executive Residence

Understated elegance is a virtue associated with many properties in sought-after Forrest, but Number 11 Melbourne Avenue has rarified that quality to create a residence with timeless appeal.

This modernist-influenced home, with its flexible living spaces, enjoys the privacy of greenery, mature hedging and electronic gates that enhance a feeling of sanctuary within its sculpted grounds, dominated by a magnificent spreading Chinese elm tree.

In fact light is welcomed into this home at every opportunity and nowhere is this more evident than in the generously proportioned living area that enjoys floor to ceiling glass along its northern face with multiple sliding doors leading onto an expansive sandstone terrace.

The kitchen nestles behind a feature rendered part wall but retains its connection to the living area through a breakfast bar topped by marble. Natural light is in abundance from a cleverly designed horizontal glass splash back that illuminates a stainless-steel countertop.

Two generous guest bedrooms with built-ins run off a skylight-lit passageway past a spacious laundry and striking main bathroom with a deep bath, walk-in shower and floor-to-ceiling tiles.

A warmly decorated second living area used for relaxation is enhanced further by full length window doors that lead onto the front garden and a luxe ensuite/powder room dressed in marble, double vanity, mosaic tiling, storage and skylight providing an option for simple conversion for single level living.

Upstairs is an expansive master bedroom with ensuite and a series of built-in robes, full length windows and doors opening onto a long Juliet balcony, welcoming in prevailing breezes.

The outdoor terrace and garden are characterised by meticulous planning, artistic inspiration and disciplined maintenance. Highlights include a sparkling rectangular koi pond and a mirror feature flanked by tulip trees creating a magnifying trompe l'oeil effect. A marvelous set of French iron gates provide entry to the third garage that might also offer an option as a home office.

Number 11 Melbourne Avenue enjoys a privileged address in the diplomatic belt with the Swiss Embassy just two doors away. It will have a strong appeal to diplomats, professionals, downsizers and to families who are looking for a classic residence that's close to everything. That includes easy access to parliament house, a choice of schools in close proximity and the Manuka and Kingston shops only minutes away.

- Four bedrooms

- Double glazing on western face
- Walnut-toned parquetry flooring
- Security system
