A spacious, stunning townhouse, in the much sought-after suburb of Turner, offers a rare opportunity to live life with simplicity and elegance.

“From the moment you walk through the large wooden front door you’re impressed and know this property is quality throughout and much more than a standard townhouse,” says Fiona Murray, Client Service Manager, Independent Property Group. “You’re greeted with a floating staircase meticulously created out of solid River Gum and at the top of the staircase is a large window letting in beautiful light. It signals what else is to come.”

Another massive advantage of 2/13 Holder Street, which faces north-east, is the property’s size and shape.

“Many townhouses are rectangle in shape and somewhat narrow, but this one is square and offers 168 square metres of living over two spacious levels,” says Fiona. “And with only four townhouses in the development, it’s truly boutique.”

Living is easy with the open plan, perfect for entertaining. Floating Spotted Gum floorboards feature throughout. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors lead from the living area to a good-sized, tiled courtyard with awnings for shade.

Contemporary in design, this modern property has a light but neutral colour scheme, quality finishes and high-end appliances. Two study nooks, one on the landing at the top of the stairs and one downstairs, are convenient working spaces.

The open-concept kitchen is a cook’s delight and a warm hub for family and friends to gather.

The glass splashback is a statement in and of itself and the Caesarstone island bench has a double sink and room for four bench seats. The kitchen offers loads of storage and a large number of German-made soft close drawers. All Bosch appliances are in excellent condition—the dishwasher has never been used. The kitchen features an extra wide gas oven (600 mm) and a six-element gas cooktop (900mm) with a wok burner. A separate dining area is positioned alongside the island.

The townhouse features four bedrooms with plush carpets and beautiful curtains.

The main bedroom, with large ensuite, is conveniently located on the main floor with double sliding doors opening out to a second private courtyard. The three other bedrooms are also generous in size, with one leading into a large ensuite. All bedrooms feature plush carpeting and beautiful curtains.

The main bathroom and guest powder room are elegantly appointed with large mirrors, crisp white wall tiles and large neutral floor tiles. A separate laundry room offers ultra-convenience.

Lush, mature trees surround this home, supporting its major street appeal. Its location in such a private, boutique development is rare indeed.

The oversized double garage has easy internal access. The home features a large wine cellar, extra storage room and a mud area.

“Turner is a major drawcard for its location,” says Fiona. “This Holder Street home is in the heart of the Inner North, and only 500 metres to the O’Connor Shops and only 600 metres to the Australian National University, yet it’s positioned on a quiet, secluded street. It’s the best of both worlds.”

All bathrooms are elegantly appointed with large mirrors and neutral tiles.

Schools are close by, with Turner Primary only 0.2 kilometres away, Lyneham High 1.6 kilometres and Merici College a kilometre. Everything else is close at hand, including cafes, restaurants and bars in Braddon, the O’Connor Post Office, Canberra Centre and Calvary Private Hospital. The future light rail will allow even easier access to the city when it is completed.

A courtyard off the living room makes for easy entertaining.
