5 houses with interior design elements you simply have to see

From a mid-century dream in Aranda to a fairytale castle in Bungendore, here are five homes with design features we're loving.

101 Spring Hill Road, East Jindabyne


Sustainability and design are fused in this beautiful home that's completely off the grid. Set high on its block, the views of Lake Jindabyne and the surrounding hills are spectacular. Design elements of note include wooden trusses, vaulted ceilings and reclaimed timber to give the home an earthy masculine aesthetic.


Matte black window frames, ceiling fans and fittings in the bathroom are complemented by plush carpets. Further stunning design features include barn doors, floor-to-ceiling windows and a large deck to immerse yourself in those incredible views. It's the perfect holiday lake house with skiing, waterskiing, fishing and boating all at your doorstep.

52 Bindaga Street, Aranda


Home to the same family for more 50 years, this property is a rare piece of Canberra's mid-century architectural history, having been extended by notable architect Roger Pegrum. The house has striking traits of Pegrum's designs including living areas built around the rear courtyard and a long glass panelled walkway that blurs the lines of indoors and out.


Exposed red brick feature walls, red cedar windows and sliding doors are highlights of the original home, while the multi-level extension gave the home five big bedrooms and a study. The long clean lines and large full height timber framed windows - to let in the Canberra sunshine and views - are among the classic mid-century features of the home.

250 Sandhills Road, Mount Fairy


Your Disney adventure awaits at this magical house in the 100-acre woods! Hallstat House is nestled at Mount Fairy, just 15 minutes East of Bungendore. Light, open spaces, high cathedral ceilings and wood details make this home at one with its natural surroundings.


The unique design features are highlighted by magnificent lighting and offset by the pitched ceilings and large windows in every room. The parquetry floors, spiral staircase and indoor pool add decadent flair.

69 Collett Street, Queanbeyan


Built in 1865, Hibernia Lodge claims to be Queanbeyan's first ever home. Boasting original timber flooring, french doors, ornate lighting and fireplaces in the living room and three of the bedrooms, this purchase is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.


The layout of the home allows for seamless entertaining with kitchen and meals rooms on both levels of the dwelling. On the ground floor, the segregated living plan with servery and powder room speaks to the parties the homestead would have hosted in the late 1800s.

18 Sorrell Close, Bungendore


Set in Bungendore’s prestigious Buckingham Estate, this is more than a home - it's a castle. The stunning design features are endless and include vaulted ceilings, exposed brick, polished wooden floors and even a secret loft.


In the summer, enjoy the outdoors by the pool, spa or under the covered alfresco area - or indulge in the amazing sauna all year round. Bonus: the home has space for stabling large animals like alpacas and horses.
