Step inside this beautifully kept contemporary home in Wright.

Set on a 647 sqm block, 14 Phillip Hodgins Street is a family haven that offers ample space for everyone with entertaining in mind.

It offers 275 sqm of carefree internal living space, as well as a combination of indoor/outdoor living with natural flows throughout.

Ray White Canberra real estate agent Alec Brown said the double-storey, five-bedroom, three-bathroom home is beautifully positioned.

“This home on Phillip Hodgins Street showcases a lovely outlook of Canberra and really does fit in handsomely with the rest of the street that’s filled with high-end modern homes,” he said.

“As you enter the home, you’ll notice its soaring ceilings and clerestory windows, which are a key feature, ensuring natural light easily cascades into the home.

“It’s also in its original form from 2014, and its quality remains high.

“It comes across as a thoughtfully designed property, as opposed to just being a basic stock home plan.”

Alec said the two-storey home in Wright has floor-to-ceiling windows and doors and a huge amount of living space which captures a northerly outlook.

“What’s quite impressive is that you get these extraordinary views to Parliament House, Mount Ainslie and beyond.

“Ultimately, it’s the type of family home that is going to be future-proof, so you’ll never need to upsize again as you can have your primary school-aged children there and see them all the way through high school beyond by having that segregation of living.

“It’s going to cater towards larger families who need a little separation and different areas to entertain from.”

As you come across the dining quarters of the home, Alec said you’ll be approached with a contemporary kitchen with a design and colour scheme that has longevity in mind.

“It’s nothing too outlandish with its décor and palette, but it remains an impressive hub to the home,” he said.

“There is also a copious amount of storage there as well as an induction cooktop, a dishwasher, breakfast island and massive walk-in butler’s pantry.

“Joining the kitchen, there is also that large family room and open area which spills out to the outdoor area which combines the indoor/outdoor living quarters.”

The Wright home has four great-proportioned bedrooms with built-in robes and an additional study.

“The master has a huge walk-through robe and quite a large, dedicated spa ensuite which is tucked towards the back of the property just to retain that idea of having space and privacy from the rest of the family,” he said.

“In addition, the study area downstairs is also very versatile and can be converted to a fifth bedroom if required.

“They also each have ample storage, as well as double-glazed windows and ducted gas heating and cooling available.”

The Ray White real estate agent said the spacious home features a main bathroom, ensuite and guest powder room.

“The bathrooms are each designed with nice neutral tones and high-quality fixtures and fittings,” Alec said.

“They are designed for practicality and simplicity, but also to look quite good with a functional layout.

“There’s lots of space and it’s done to a degree of precision which indicates that the idea of a renovation is way off into the future.”

There’s also a huge laundry and laundry chute.

Alec said the alfresco area was a highlight of the home.

“The landscaping is also very simple and easy care. The alfresco area also has quite a lot of yard space for kids and offers that privacy, which is a drawcard for buyers.

“I think what’s really nice about it is an under-roofline area. It’s not just your average pergola space. It has nice, high-set ceilings, there is a barbecue area, it is very large, and again, it enjoys that northerly orientation- so it is suitable for the winter sun, in particular.

“It’s also great for entertaining as it’s got the glass sliding doors that connect the internal living spaces to the external living spaces.”

Additional property features include a triple garage, an underground water tank, a solar hot water system and a fully fenced backyard.

“This home has been well received from the market so far,” Alec said.

“People are telling us that it is a really well thought-out and well-designed property which has such a spectacular outlook that only a handful of properties have in Wright.

“It is also centrally located and close to all the amenities of the city and Woden.”

14 Phillip Hodgins Street will be auctioned on Friday, 3 February, at 5:30 pm.
