The five-bedroom two-bathroom home at 29 De Lissa Street in Evatt is built in the bright Hamptons style and has a panoramic view of Lake Ginninderra and the Brindabella Mountains beyond.

The paved driveway of the home leads to the white barn doors of the double garage, the first hint that the home is something quite special. A gabled roof gives the home a unique character and a very attractive street presentation. An established front garden with contrasting foliage leads to the entrance and is a prelude to the grace of the home’s interior.

The entrance hall has spotted gum hardwood flooring and hosts a traditional wooden staircase to the second floor. The clean white cornices of the high ceilings emphasise the spaciousness, simplicity and elegance within the home. White painted panels on the walls accentuate the Hamptons style, while a feature light makes an elegant statement and sets the tone for the interior.

The entrance

The entrance to the home hosts the traditional wooden staircase and flows through to the living areas and kitchen.

The formal living room is beautifully appointed, continuing the clean, white crispness of the entrance hall, with light streaming in from French doors onto the rear deck and manicured gardens. A fireplace with a white mantelpiece reinforces the elegance of this room, with feature tiles on the hearth creating a subtle colour palette of blue and ochre.

The fireplace

The fireplace is a beautiful feature in the formal living room.

The kitchen is an entertainer’s delight, with pops of colour in the overhead lights and the blue doors to the entrance hall. Full-length bay windows look out onto the formal front garden, and the granite waterfall benchtop complements the spotted gum hardwood floors, and the stainless steel gas cooktop and oven.

The kitchen

The heart of the home, the kitchen, is both beautiful and practical.

The ground floor of the home also houses two of the five bedrooms, which follow the elegant style of the formal living room and entrance hall. The staircase leads up to a family room and three bedrooms, a family zone with a family bathroom. A magnificent balcony with panoramic views is accessible through sliding doors from the family room, and an external staircase leads to a covered porch and alfresco dining, ideal for entertaining in the evenings.

The master bedroom downstairs is a quiet, calm retreat, with an ensuite that has delightful coloured feature tiles in the frameless shower, and a glass wall looking out onto a courtyard garden.

Home.byHolly sales agent Cris O’Brien says the home is unique and beautiful, in a leafy quiet street with an elevated position. It will go to auction on 5 November.

“This family home is something special,” said Ms O’Brien.

“It’s beautifully renovated throughout, while maintaining the original Hamptons aesthetic, offering a blend of elegant and sophisticated design with a coastal warmth feel ideal for relaxed, laid-back living.”

“The home speaks of nostalgia and tradition, and of family and heritage,” she said.

The home has ducted gas heating and evaporative cooling on the upper level, with an additional split system in the lounge room. The back yard has been landscaped, and has raised vegetable garden beds, paved paths, a solar-powered water feature, inbuilt concrete and mosaic seating, and a mini orchard of lemon, lime and mandarin trees.
