Feast your eyes on this one-of-a-kind property with superior finishes and a unique design that provides breathtaking views from the central location of Garran.
Recently restored, 10 Bonwick Place is a six-bedroom, four-bathroom home on a 1088 sqm land parcel on an elevated and picturesque block.
With 325 sqm of floor space, high ceilings and a design that exemplifies luxury living, LJ Hooker real estate agent Jane says the views from the superbly finished home are unbeatable.
“This home is an architectural icon,” Jane says.
“Its location is everything. Backing Red Hill nature reserve and unbelievable 360-degree views over Woden to the Brindabellas only adds to the beauty and appeal of the home.”
As you enter the home, Jane says the first thing you’ll notice is the striking hardwood flooring that adds warmth.
“The home has an extensive and beautiful layout,” she says.
“The floor-to-ceiling glass doors and large balcony highlight the magnificent views from the property.
“The amazing sunken living area is only three steps down from the main level and is one of the four living areas.”
When you step away from the formal dining area, you are greeted with yet another spacious living and entertaining area where natural light bounces from the high-set ceilings.
This space includes a floating gas fireplace with a timber feature wall that overlooks the inground pool and landscaped resort-style garden.
Jane says the designer kitchen offers neutral tones with rose gold coloured fixtures.
“It features a sleek island stone benchtops and matching splash backs, a five burner gas cooktop, a dual fuel oven, Schweigen rangehood, copper sink, Vintec wine fridge and Miele dishwasher,” she says.
“There are also high-end fixtures, including refined custom cabinetry, a butler’s pantry and an integrated laundry.
“The extensive views out to the Brindabellas and surrounds of the Red Hill Nature Reserve are seen from every angle of the kitchen.”
The residence features four bathrooms.
“There’s one master bathroom in the hallway which is beautifully renovated, there’s a modern bathroom in the downstairs studio, and then there’s a powder room which services the pool,” Jane says.
The separate studio has its own entrance, bedroom, ensuite and kitchen, making it ideal for a teenager’s retreat, au pair’s residence or home-based business.
The grounds of the home are equally impressive and well thought out.
“It has a pool, a firepit and surrounding built-in seating. It’s definitely a home for entertaining and having guests or extended family over,” she says.
“The in-ground swimming pool evokes resort-style relaxation. Beside the pool lies the fire pit – perfect for those winter nights.”
There’s also the aforementioned studio room, providing the perfect location for a gym or home business with separate side access.
Other features of the home include steel and double concrete block construction, car accommodation for five vehicles, ducted gas heating, air conditioning and a Bosch alarm system.
There’s also LED lighting, double-glazed windows, twin roller blinds, sliding stacker doors, remote blinds in the lounge, Colourbond fencing, stone retaining walls, an irrigation system, lawn sprinklers and a storage room.
Being walking distance to Canberra Hospital and mere minutes to Parliament House, this property has the best of both worlds – amazing presentation and a convenient central location.
The property will be auctioned on Saturday 6 August at 1 pm.
