A five-bedroom Art Deco-inspired home built in 1937 is on the market on Canberra’s ‘golden mile’ and comes with a full-sized tennis court, a formal circular driveway, and manicured gardens featuring grand 80-year-old trees.

The stylish property at 9 Mugga Way, Forrest, sits on a 2,327-square metre block which is entered through motorised gates which lead to a U-shaped home with the gardens and outdoor entertainment areas in the middle.

With a price guide of around $5 million, the property is located in one of Canberra’s most sought-after streets and is close to the Parliamentary Triangle, Canberra Girls Grammar School, and the popular Manuka, Kingston and Deakin precincts.

Listing agent Tony Trpeski of Peter Blackshaw City & Inner North said the home has been lovingly restored in keeping with its origins by the current owners and that the Art Deco inspiration can be seen in its flat roof, curves and U-shape.

“The home feels so warm because the owners have renovated it in keeping with its original style,” said Mr Trpeski.

“While there are always super-contemporary homes coming onto the market, it’s getting hard to find anything like this.

“The gardens are sensational. There’s 80-year-old trees in the backyard in beautiful condition that provide a canopy for the entertaining areas.”

Mr Trpeski said there is a view from every room in the house with other special features including a wine cellar, an opulent kitchen, two bathrooms, a spacious master suite, a home office, Sydney Blue Gum timber flooring, and a formal dining room featuring Bohemian crystal chandelier from Prague.

For more information or to arrange an inspection contact Mr Trpeski on 0413 168 733 or click here.

The property at 9 Mugga Way will be open for inspection today (Saturday, March 2) from 3 pm to 4 pm and on Wednesday (March 6) from 6 pm to 7 pm.
