Go glamping every night with this yurt in Curtin

Designed by award-winning local architect Nino Bellantonio to capture the best of its sunny northerly aspect, this beautifully-presented, extended and modernised home is a gorgeous offering in Canberra's south.

Located on an expansive 882sqm block adjacent to a reserve, 9 Allan Place, Curtin, offers space and stunning scenery, and is a short trip from Canberra’s CBD.

Built in 1964, the home has since been reconfigured to better take advantage of its position and surroundings.

With fencing lining the block and large windows throughout the home, a sense of space and privacy encompasses this four-bedroom, two-bathroom home.

Luton Properties real estate agent Kate Yates describes the home as "quirky and different".


"It’s got expansive windows that extend to the roofline in some cases, but it’s also got this lovely warm feeling about it,” Kate says.

Evidence of its quirkiness lies in the backyard: that’s where you’ll find the yurt.

The yurt is a small circular room detached from the house that can be used in endless ways: from storage to a lounge room or even a bedroom.

“The yurt was built in the 1990s, and it adds value and functionality to the home," Kate says.

"It can easily be used as a fourth bedroom like it is now, another living space or even a teen’s retreat."


As you make your way into the home, you pass through a fully fenced entranceway, complete with an abundance of greenery.

The home features two spacious and separate light-filled living areas, each of which is architecturally distinct. You’ll also find a study area, two private courtyards, an outside sunroom with an integrated deck, and a landscaped garden.

The open-plan lounge and dining area includes a fireplace, raked ceilings and skylights. It flows naturally to the private and lush front courtyard on one side, and the north-facing entertainer’s deck with pergola on the other.


The north-facing family room features a wood-burning stove, stunning curved walls, and windows that create a generous sense of warmth, space and cascading light.

The kitchen overlooks the backyard and the deck has been updated with new stainless-steel appliances, a breakfast bar, new bench tops and a stylish tiled backsplash.

The master suite includes built-in wardrobes and French doors that open to a private deck and courtyard. Bedrooms two and three are a mirror image and also come with built-in wardrobes.


Moving outside, you’ll find a large and well-maintained backyard alongside a shed.

Extra storage is provided with a handy loft, accessed by cleverly-positioned pull-down stairs. The loft room has approved plans by architect Nino Bellantonio for conversion into an upstairs bedroom or oversized study complete with an orb roof.

Number 9 Allan Place, Curtin, will be auctioned at 11am on Saturday 3 September.
