Privacy, security, space and breath-taking views – this stately home in one of Canberra’s most desirable gated communities offers an exquisite lifestyle opportunity.

The luxury four-bedroom villa in the exclusive ‘Kingsgate’ community offers more than 420 square metres of living space and sits on a massive 1160 square metre parcel of land.

Sales agent Theo Koutsikamanis from Bastion Property Group says 5/15 Dalman Crescent O’Malley is perfect for a family, with loads of room for guests and extended family members.

“This home is huge and all of the living areas are oversized, including a fantastic separate area downstairs that would be ideal for elderly parents, a teenage retreat or to set up a gym or home office,” he said.

Stepping into the grand entry foyer packs a punch, with super high square-set ceilings welcoming you to a sophisticated living space that continues out onto a massive entertaining deck.

“The home has been designed to take in the magnificent views of the mountains and out to Red Hill, and the floor-to-ceiling windows flood the rooms with natural light,” Theo said.

“The inside living areas and alfresco decks have amazing views – yet the property is very private.”

The main living areas and bedrooms are upstairs, while the downstairs living space, complete with wet room, bedroom and ensuite, also has two private decks plus separate access.

“It’s great to have a completely segregated area for elderly parents or guests,” Theo said.

“At 107 square metres, this second living space is half the size of a regular house!”

He says the sophisticated, award-winning design was way ahead of its time.

“The home is 10 years old, but the well thought-out design and open floor plan is very modern – it’s impressive.”

Showcasing stunning views and surrounded by mature native trees, it is sited on the north-easterly slopes of Mt Mugga Mugga, capturing stunning views over the Woden Valley, with Black Mountain, Red Hill, the Brindabellas and National Arboretum.

The free-standing home is one of 10 in the gated complex originally designed by Stewart Architecture and built by Creative Building Services to accommodate Canberra’s visiting diplomats.

‘Kingsgate’ took out the Multiple Housing Award in the ACT Architecture awards in 2011.

The residence is overflowing with luxury finishes, from the solid timber flooring and custom joinery throughout, to blockout blinds that offer complete privacy.

The gourmet kitchen features walk-in pantry, and stainless steel Bosch appliances.

Although it’s a large home, the ducted air-con keeps the home comfortable all year ’round, while the gas fireplace and undertile heating keep the home warm in winter.

Theo says the hero of the home is the massive sundeck, with room for outdoor lounges, dining table and perfect for private dinner parties and summer soirees.

“The only value to be added is to put in a sunken pool and that would be the icing on the cake,” he said.

The property is close to some of Canberra’s most desirable schooling and just a short drive from the boutique shopping and dining precincts of Kingston, Manuka and Woden.

Theo says, with COVID-19 lockdowns, he is offering online virtual inspections.
