Located in the heart of Canberra on a street lined by luscious trees and only minutes away from excellent shopping centres, eateries, universities and the CBD, you’ll find this luxury, light-filled home in O’Connor, providing everything you could want and more.

With 262 sqm of generous internal living space, this modern sanctuary provides privacy and lifestyle with convenient access to everything the inner city has to offer.

The 2021 home, found at 106 Scrivener Street in O’Connor, was crafted by Tomi Milin Architects and showcases a flawless interplay of indoor and outdoor spaces – perfect for everyday living and entertaining guests.

“This beautiful home combines elegant and luxury finishes with a seamless layout perfectly blending indoor and outdoor living,” says Ray White Canberra real estate agent Maree Van Arkel.

Entering the home via a private entry courtyard, you arrive in a formal sunken lounge, with a view through to the centre courtyard anchoring every room.

The formal lounge area of the home features three-metre-high ceilings overlooking the covered vergola entry with beautiful, light-fitting sheer curtains.

Travelling further into the home’s light-filled spaces, you will find a stunning open kitchen, dining and living area surrounded by floor-to-ceiling double-glazed windows overlooking a private outdoor oasis.

Maree says the chic kitchen grabs everyone’s attention with its marble stone benchtops and striking cabinetry.

“The kitchen also features a spacious butlers pantry, a 900 mm induction cooktop and an additional Bosch oven,” she says.

“The kitchen also oversees the beautiful pool and outdoor living spaces.”

This like-new home features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and multiple sitting and lounging areas, including a segregated children’s retreat.

Maree says the master and two of the bedrooms have walk-in robes, and the fourth bedroom has a large built-in cupboard.

All bedrooms have new plantation shutters and ceiling fans.

“The house is fitted with modern, contemporary bathrooms. The large ensuite has double shower heads and the main bathroom has a large bath plus a powder room,” Maree says.

The home has electric window furnishings, engineered oak flooring and under-tile heating in wet areas throughout the house.


The inground solar hydro-heated pool is unforgettable.

Maree says this O’Connor home won’t fail to impress with its amazing covered alfresco area, an electric Vergola to provide shade or light according to the season, and an inground solar hydro-heated pool.

“It’s great for any entertainer, as its outdoor features and landscaping are so eye-catching and beautifully presented,” she says.

“It’s also got a built-in BBQ with a hot water sink.

“The home is also perfect for holding events and having guests over as it has separate living areas, making it ideal for families.”

The outdoor area has professionally landscaped designer gardens, new marble paving in the entrance and rear courtyard areas, and a new electric retractable awning at the rear.

In addition to its breath-taking looks, the home has CCTV security and alarm, a new dual Sonos integrated systems, a large powder room and separate laundry with rear access and ample custom joinery. Three separate ducted climate control systems will ensure year-round comfort, a double garage with remote and internal access, and side trailer or caravan parking.

This spectacular home will be auctioned on Saturday, 9 July at 1 pm.
