Windows are the jewels in the crown for this perfectly placed Ngunnawal home

Windows are the jewels in the crown for this perfectly placed Ngunnawal home

The first thing you’ll notice about this magnificent family home in Ngunnawal is the pair of quarter-circle windows looking out over the driveway.

Award-winning architect Tony Trobe of TT Architecture designed 112 Jabanungga Avenue in the early 1990s, strategically placing the home on the block to take the greatest advantage of the northern aspect. Then it was about maximising its energy efficiency and surrounding it with a lush garden.

McGrath Canberra real estate agent Sam Taylor says the four-bedroom property is fresh to the market, but has already received “heaps of enquiries”.

“It’s an entry-level four-bedroom place and it’s a bit quirky, but people love the uniqueness of it,” he says.

The living areas all face north. There is also a separate formal lounge room and rumpus room. while large sliding doors offer direct access from the dining area to the covered alfresco and outdoor bench seating.

The white kitchen with its black, stone-look Laminex benchtop includes ample storage, a dishwasher and a gas cooktop.

The ground floor includes three bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes, and a bathroom with a shower, spa bath and separate toilet.


A top-floor master retreat is complete with an ensuite, walk-in-robe and rumpus room, all with those stunning views over the rolling hills.

Sam says it might have been built in 1995, but the home hasn’t lost any of its energy efficiency over the years. It still recorded a 5.5-star rating, thanks to a clever combination of north-facing placement, ceiling design and skylights.

Two split-system air-conditioners and gas heating ensure comfort all year round.

Outside, there’s a low-maintenance and very private backyard with mature hedges, plantings and a large grassed area. The double lock-up garage has interior access, ample storage and electric roller doors.

And to top it all off, there are a host of conveniences nearby that make it perfect for families,including parks, playgrounds, a variety of schools, Casey Market Town, and it’s a short drive to the Gungahlin Marketplace.


The home will be auctioned on-site at 10:30 am on Sunday, 10 April.
