This one-of-a-kind four-bedroom family home at 9 Bert Groves Street in Bonner is full of unique touches and custom details lovingly crafted by the Canberra builder/designer/owner.

Designed and built by and for the family behind Canberra’s Link Constructions, the more-than-18-month design process left no corner of the home short of love or attention.

“Every piece of joinery in the home … is custom-made by local Canberra businesses,” the owner says.

“We used our years of experience building and designing homes to create a unique and special forever home.”

Pool and house

The private resort-style outdoor entertaining area features a solar-heated magnesium mineral pool, porch, sheltered cabana and a courtyard with a fire pit.

Stone Real Estate sales agent Kris Hellier says this attention to detail is immediately apparent to real estate agents and buyers alike.

“A lot of the buyers that walk through comment on the quality, and everyone agrees it is a 10 out of 10 inclusion home,” he says.

“From when you walk through the front door, there’s not a thing that you can buy off the shelf. The whole home is one of one.”

Mr Hellier says the grand entrance to the home is a feature in and of itself, featuring large windows to capture sunrises and sunsets.

A designer staircase with cantilevered polished concrete treads is sure to catch your guest’s eye as soon as they walk through the door.

This staircase leads to the upper level of the home, from which there is a 180-degree panoramic view stretching all the way from Gungahlin town centre to Parliament House and Telstra Tower.

It’s no coincidence this is where the majority of living takes place, with an alfresco space to soak up the stunning views, complete with full-length outdoor blinds, fans, ceiling heaters and gas hob.

Also upstairs and all with uniquely expansive outdoor views are the family and dining space, formal lounge, home office wired for up to three separate computers, powder room and kitchen.

The kitchen sports a custom cantilever epoxy timber top island bench, butler’s pantry, designer pendant, stainless steel bench tops and a complete set of fully-integrated kitchen appliances, including a Liebherr fridge and freezer plumbed for use as an ice maker, Smeg induction cooktop, double pyrolytic ovens, steam oven, microwave and two dishwashers.

Mr Hellier says the “ridiculously” long list of features continues downstairs, with the outdoor private resort-style facilities making up a considerable part of that list.

At the heart of the ground level is an almost 50 square metre private courtyard with a central firepit, directly adjacent to a rumpus room with a dedicated bar.

Walk through the rumpus and you’ll find a solar-heated magnesium mineral pool alongside a porch and sheltered cabana with ceiling fans.

Also downstairs are three bedrooms, all with custom wardrobes, and a master suite with walk-in robe, ensuite and Cemintel concrete feature panels.

The two downstairs bathrooms have double showers and bathtubs and a separate laundry with lots of extra storage space.

Other sweeteners include a 2.5 car garage complete with a mud room and large workbench, data and TV points to every room, a seven-camera CCTV alarm system and a heating and cooling system to keep the worst of Winter or Summer at bay, including reverse-cycle air conditioning, gas fireplace, dual hot water system, zoned hydronic in-slab heating to the lower floor and hydronic radiator.

If you can bring yourself to leave the home, you’ll find yourself on the doorstep of the leafy Bilin Bilin Street Playground, with Oak Hill Nature Reserve and Bonner Urban Park also nearby.

“We have poured our hearts and souls into this home and hope the new owners enjoy it as much as we have,” the owner says.
