There’s no accidentally driving past this house in Red Hill. Curated for superior comfort and effortless entertaining, this two-level home of impressive proportions and exquisite finishes radiates luxury from the street.

Technically a duplex property, the ‘A’ half of 222 La Perouse Street in Red Hill is fresh to the market, boasting two storeys, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and all trimmed to perfection.

Ray White Canberra real estate agent Cameron Whitnall says the first thing that stood out the moment he opened the door was the “sheer sense of space”.

“The brief was plenty of natural light, and the architect and builder have both worked together to achieve that.”

The home was deliberately set in a north-to-west orientation to make the most of natural light. Low-maintenance gardens provide the perfect backdrop, complementing the modern, block-based design and design thread of timber that runs all the way through, from the garage door to the floorboards.

Cameron says the first inspection is scheduled for Saturday, 5 March, but it’s already attracting plenty of interest.

“The original builder is the current owner, and the home has been really well looked after.”

The floorplan boasts expansive open-plan living and dining spaces, a lavish kitchen with gas appliances and an island bench, a palatial master suite with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite, all overlooking a private terrace.

Two timber decks jut out from the living area, providing plenty of overflow room for entertaining larger crowds.

Upstairs, you’ll find two of the bedrooms (each with built-in wardrobes), a bathroom and two cosy retreat areas. A covered balcony provides an elevated outlook over the street.

There is plenty of allowance made throughout the home for storage, with a laundry and workshop space. Year-round comfort is assured via reverse-cycle air-conditioning in the living area and three of the bedrooms, while double-glazed windows are used throughout.

Red Hill enjoys enviable proximity to the Manuka shops and Woden town centre. Red Hill Primary, Canberra Grammar and Narrabundah College aren’t far away.

The spectacular designer home will be auctioned on-site on Saturday, 26 March, at 4 pm.
