A pristine heated saltwater pool. An eight-person spa. Sky-high three-metre ceilings. Generously-sized bedrooms and large, open-plan living spaces. Walking distance to some of the region’s best restaurants, cafes and bars.

While you’d expect an exotic retreat in a far-flung location to list similar features, you don’t need to travel thousands of kilometres to experience this kind of luxury. For the right buyer, resort-style living is available right here in Canberra, 365 days a year.

The property’s large windows and north-easterly aspect make for a bright and well-lit home.

Billed as “a private, ultimate luxurious lifestyle retreat within a premium location,” 47 Barrallier Street in Griffith is far from your average four-bedroom home. Built in 2015, the two-storey house reflects a commitment to style and quality – along with many custom-made inclusions.

Peter Blackshaw Real Estate Manuka’s Mario Sanfrancesco says that above all, the property stands out for its size, quality and attention to detail.

“What makes this property unique is that it is very generous in space. There is just under 500 square metres of living area. It has space for the largest of families or even extended families, and would be ideal for someone who wants to work from home.

“In addition, it has an amazing resort feel, and is just minutes away from Manuka, Kingston shops and Griffith shops,” he says.

With a spacious covered alfresco area overlooking the pool, 47 Barrallier Street is an entertainer’s dream.

“My favourite thing about the home is the view from the living area overlooking the outdoor alfresco area and pool. It’s quite remarkable, especially in Canberra. It’s the sort of thing you would expect to see in a five-star resort in another country.

“Of course, the quality of the overall finishings and construction is another highlight.”

The spacious master bedroom is private and inviting.

Given its size, it should be no surprise that this home offers something to please everyone.

The master bedroom, for example, is segregated from the main living areas and has everything a work-weary adult needs to unwind, including a free-standing bathtub in the ensuite and a cosy fireplace overlooking the pool and garden.

If a soak in the tub isn’t relaxing enough, a drink from the living room bar might do the trick.

The rumpus room is a perfect teenager’s retreat.

Meanwhile, teenagers and older children can spread out and enjoy time away from mum and dad in the sizeable rumpus and theatre rooms on the first floor.

Dinner parties, birthday parties or relaxed summer BBQs – it’s all possible at 47 Barrallier Street.

Those who love cooking and entertaining don’t miss out either. The designer kitchen, featuring high-end appliances and Caesar stone bench tops, connects to a butler’s pantry. The living and dining areas are large enough to cater to gatherings of almost any size, while the outdoor alfresco area won’t let a bit of inclement weather get in the way of a good party.

Mario says that the property has attracted plenty of interest, but there’s still time to arrange an inspection ahead of the auction on Saturday 10 November 2018.

“Interest in this property has been really strong. Buyers inspecting the property have commented favourably, there have been a good number of inspections and hopefully we will find a new family to enjoy living here,” he says.
