Sophisticated mid-century modernist home

This rare distinctive mid-century modernist designed home is in a prime position and bordering the Embassy Belt in sought-after Yarralumla. Set back on an elevated 2310m2 parcel of land the property is surrounded by beautiful established private gardens. The unique exclusive architect-designed residence is a sanctuary of its own and is a home designed for sophisticated entertaining within a secluded setting.

This impeccably maintained property has been built to a very high standard with many of the original elements intact. The design remains timeless and functional with a level of conservation rarely found.

A grand front foyer, generous formal living and dining areas are highlighted with continuous flowing parquetry flooring. A fireplace with intricate stonework, elegant high ceilings and expansive glass provide a feeling of warmth and light by northerly sunshine and outlook to lush manicured gardens. Generous formal entertaining spaces are created by the configuration of various rooms, which lead out to a large terrace and outdoor fireplace. A functional kitchen with adjacent servery provides for distinctive and discrete entertaining for numerous guests.

Originally designed and built for senior European diplomats, this extraordinary offering of 6 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms would suit discerning residents who regularly entertain for a large number of occupants and guests. The external fireplace is yet another feature established to suit the diplomatic world of entertainment.

A separate wing of the home downstairs could easily accommodate guests or be a teenager's dream quarters.

This home is unique and those who appreciate mid-century history will admire its qualities.
Yarralumla is arguably one of the most desirable locations in Canberra, close to Lake Burley Griffin, the Royal Canberra Golf Course, and Government House. It is also within close proximity to various well-regarded schools, the Parliamentary Triangle, Yarralumla and Deakin shops.
