Nestled among lush manicured gardens lies a distinctive and completely renovated 360 sqm home that showcases visually captivating interiors sure to please anyone who inspects it.
Conveniently located in Campbell, 10 Cobby Street is an elevated home set on 2300 sqm high above Canberra’s panoramic spread and offers spectacular views of the Brindabellas while surrounded by luscious green, well-kept European-style gardens.
Ray White real estate agent Peter Walker said this property was best described as a “distinctive home designed with a classic and elegant mood in mind”.
“This home is completely renovated and dates back to 1969,” he said.
“The design is based on an award-winning American house plan that involves cyclone proof construction and is very sturdily built. It’s very robust.
“Its leafy mature gardens are both lush and picturesque. It’s hard to focus on the house from the street once you spot the sweeping driveway.”
The minute you approach the circular pebble stone driveway, you are greeted by the breathtaking gardens that steal the show.
Mr Walker said the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home was one of Campbell’s most luxurious properties ever offered for sale.
“I think a family is certainly the target audience for this property due to its substantial accommodation, enormous block, quiet location and proximity to the city, airport and adjacent bushland,” he said.
“It boasts double-glazed windows and plenty of versatile, fluid living spaces. A commitment to maximising its sense of space and light throughout the home was paramount to any modifications planned for the home.”
Mr Walker said this property was unique as it depicts a modern design that reflects class and elegance, featuring a formal living room with a fireplace, a dining area, a sitting room and a separate media room.
“The kitchen was designed by a three-star Michelin chef with a series of high-end quality electrical appliances, gas hot plates and an exhaust fan that comes out from the bench.
“You’ve also got the marble benchtops which are a real focal point for gatherings, especially when entertaining as the kitchen overlooks the backyard, including a secure pool area and championship tennis court.”
Mr Walker said this home had been almost completely renovated over the past 10 years.
“It has three bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs, which are generously sized and well-proportioned,” he said.
“With the bathroom upstairs, the owners decided to preserve the Tiffany coloured tiles and went all around Australia to make sure they had enough material to redo it.
“The current ensuite, which now has a shower, was also once a bedroom. The owners converted another bedroom to a very lavish and opulent walk-in wardrobe upstairs, with a backdrop of the city.
Underfloor heating is also featured in all bathrooms, with ducted gas heating and zoned ducted air conditioning throughout the home to ensure year-round comfort.
Mr Walker said this home was perfect for entertaining, with its sizeable open living spaces and large backyard.
“It also offers a large solar heated swimming pool, and when you walk outside, you aren’t immediately confronted by it, so I think people like the fact that it’s tucked away,” he said.
“There’s also a championship-size clay tennis court which has hosted a number of tournaments in the past.”
The exterior of the home features travertine paving around the pool, 40-year-old box hedges, a large stone wall that backs onto the reserves, and a timber pergola made from the timbers salvaged from the old Tharwa bridge when it was lost to the 2003 bushfires.
Mr Walker said 10 Cobby Street was one of the finest properties offered for sale on the northside of Canberra.
“I’ve had a lot of people come through offering very favourable feedback regarding the home, its location and its surprisingly elevated position overlooking our city and surrounds,” he said.
The on-site auction will be held Thursday, 9 June at 5:00 pm.
