A six-bedroom five-bathroom home for sale in the leafy suburb of Yarralumla has the features of a dream property – including an indoor swimming pool, a tennis court with floodlighting, a home theatre, and a central courtyard with room for 100 guests.

Built over two blocks, the remarkable home at 16 Hill Corner sits on 1,980 square metres of land and offers a private retreat with multiple recreational and entertainment spaces.

The modern-pavilion style home is classically designed and adorned with all the luxury items that could be hoped for.

Listing agent Mario Sanfrancesco of Peter Blackshaw Manuka said that the residence has been designed to ensure privacy for all the family and benefits from a restrained colour palette.

“This is a home that thrives on its apparent simplicity of architecture. However, on its sophisticated and well-planned interior it’s another surprise altogether,” said Mr Sanfrancesco.

Located near a selection of Canberra’s most prestigious schools and the embassy precinct, the property’s price is ‘by negotiation’.

The residence’s statement double front doors open up onto a tiled hallway screened by rich, dark timber walls.

There is a generous living area and a spacious dining area which adjoins a designer kitchen with a large white island bench and breakfast bar, and a comprehensively-equipped butler’s kitchen.

On the ground level, there is a luxury adult retreat in a sizeable wing, with a master ensuite featuring his and hers marble vanities.

Upstairs there is a gym and three more queen-sized bedrooms, one with ensuite and a walk-in robe and the others with generous built-ins.

On the ground floor there is a multi-purpose room with a glass walkway leading to another ample room, currently being used as a Pilates studio.

From here stairs lead down to a fully-equipped home theatre with plush, recline seating for eight.

The spacious central courtyard features an outdoor BBQ area with a bench-top which could act as a generous servery for catered events.

The property also includes a full-sized, synthetic-turfed tennis court with floodlighting and a two-storey pool house with a gas and solar-heated 11.5-metre swimming pool as well as a sitting room, kitchenette and bathroom.

The upper level of the pool house provides a luxury self-contained apartment for a teenager, young adult, or guest.
