Immerse yourself in this one-of-a-kind, eye-catching, palace-style property in one of Canberra’s most desirable suburbs – Denman Prospect.

From the minute you approach the 480 square metre architectural masterpiece at 27 Kondelea Way, you will be lost for words.

Verv Property real estate agent Jason Roses said the double-storey property features some of the world’s finest inclusions and designer finishes from around the world.

“The rare materials the owners have used, you just wouldn’t see in your normal, newly built home. The owners have gone above and beyond and paid lots of attention to detail,” Jason said.

“It’s really quite inspiring and captivating as the current owners have spent thousands of hours putting together this spectacular home.

“For me, the standout feature is the master ensuite that’s been designed entirely out of Versace. It’s something that I’ve never seen in my 15-year career. The owner said the gold leaf she’s used to paint the Versace faces was imported from France, the same gold leaf that’s been used in palaces in France. It’s just so unique.”

The designer-inspired home also features German-made double-glazed windows, luxury vinyl herringbone flooring with golden borders throughout, Italian tiles in all the bathrooms and Basswood timber shutters and remote-controlled double roller blinds.

Jason said the home features 289 square metres of living space.

“As soon as you walk in the home, you will appreciate the gorgeous, antique, Persian-inspired handcrafted doors,” Jason said.

“The minute buyers see that they understand this home is going to be a little bit different.

“You can see the owner has a love for beautiful, dark, high-quality timbers, especially when you come across the staircase. The railing itself incorporates a custom, wrought-iron design.”

The Verv Property real estate agent said the heart of the home was the kitchen.

“It’s a French provincial-inspired kitchen with handcrafted woodwork,” Jason said.

“The kitchen bench is granite with a leathered finish.

“It’s so rare and so unique; even the light fittings in the kitchen have been sourced from antique dealers in Sydney. There’s definitely been a lot of thought put into it.”

The kitchen also features a walk-in pantry, custom joinery and cabinetry and a splashback imported from Italy.

Jason said that while so many unforgettable small touches contribute to the style of the functional living spaces, the home has been designed to entertain on a larger scale.

“It’s got a lovely, big, spacious open-plan meals and dining area,” he said.

“Another highlight is that it connects seamlessly from indoor living to the outdoor entertaining space. As soon as you open those beautiful doors, there’s a space that can comfortably entertain up to 100 family and friends.”

The Denman Prospect home features four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

“The home has been designed for family living with multiple entertaining spaces which offer optimal flexibility,” Jason said.

“If you’ve got a party or a gathering, there are multiple living options and spaces, and most bedrooms are upstairs. Downstairs there is an additional guest room with its own ensuite.

“The bedrooms are generous and comfortable. Everything in this home is in good proportion. Lots of time and effort went into the design.”

Jason said every bathroom in the home has a unique design to give it its own personality.

“The two main bathrooms have been designed with floor-to-ceiling tiles and custom timber vanity units,” he said.

“The powder room features a 200-year-old reclaimed timber bench held up by chains, and the sink is made of petrified timber.

“The master ensuite is inspired by the owners’ love of Versace – everything is hand painted with touches of gold leaf, which makes it quite special.”

The Verv Property real estate agent said the alfresco is one of the most impressive aspects of the home.

“Designed for entertaining on a grand scale, it has a huge covered, 46 square metre outdoor entertaining area with outdoor heaters and an outdoor kitchen,” Jason said.

The outdoor area also features a handcrafted Spanish water feature.

This home is conveniently located near local schools and the Denman Prospect shops, within walking distance of schools, such as Evelyn Scott School, so it’s just the perfect suburb for families.

27 Kondelea Way will be open for inspection on Wednesday, 16 November, from 5 pm to 5:30 pm.

It will be on auction on Saturday, 19 November, at 12 pm.
