Situated in a central Canberra location in the adored suburb of O’Connor, a grand opportunity presents itself at 155 Wattle Street.

The home has been lovingly curated by the current owners since 1999 and is now ready for a new family to love.

Unspoiled views across Canberra and the luscious gardens that create a world of its own were just some of the main reasons the current owners purchased the property.

Architects Ring and Associates were appointed to design new features and extensions for the home, which were perfected over five years. The extension to the home was designed to create a seamless flow through each spacious area.

LJ Hooker real estate agent Ryan Hedley said the home was something special.

“It’s rare you get a home like this up for offer. It’s a one-of-a-kind,” he said.

“This home has great attention to detail and fantastic personal touches throughout – not to mention the panoramic views of Canberra that would be hard to replicate anywhere else.”

The home makes the most of the sun’s movements celebrating natural light from all aspects and featuring Australian timber throughout.

The home makes use of every space within its vast 392 sqm, featuring multiple living areas for the whole family to enjoy. With four large bedrooms plus a study, there’s ample room for all.

The master suite is large, with a walk-in robe, renovated ensuite and a private balcony. The ensuite features a luxurious spa bath with bi-fold windows immersing you in nature with views right across Canberra from Mt Ainslie down to Woden Valley from the balcony.

The heart of the home is the large kitchen, updated in 2004 with an abundance of storage and space; it’s surrounded by family, dining and living areas and allows easy access for alfresco dining in the courtyard and garden areas.

There are a few hidden secrets throughout the home, including a wine cellar, workshop and refurbished garage that presents as a hobby room.

The garden must be seen to be believed. It’s a perfect balance of nature and entertaining areas with multiple areas to enjoy, including an alfresco dining zone, a paved area with a built-in pizza oven and spectacular views, veggie garden beds and open green spaces.

Lyneham High and Lyneham Primary, Lyneham shops, the University of Canberra, Braddon and Canberra City are all an easy walk or commute.
