A Fine Example of Australian Modernism.

Nestled on a sought after hillside position in the leafy suburb of Evatt, this architecturally designed 1979 modernist home is sited on a 1,154 sq m corner block.

The home combines a wonderful mix of architectural elements; soulful spaces; indoor outdoor connections; lots of space and volume, and enjoys a wet lands setting at the base of the cul-de-sac in which it is located.

Open, and flooded with light, this home is a Modernist sanctuary just 10 minutes from the heart of Belconnen town centre.

Surrounded by established gardens, the in-ground pool and outside covered entertaining terrace gives this family home scale and soul.

Situated at the front of an elevated corner block, the U-shaped plan includes four bedrooms, study, four bathrooms, a separate lounge room, an open-plan kitchen, dining and living room, and the latter with large scale sliding glass doors opening onto a covered entertainment area and swimming pool.

Sympathetically updated, all of the homes windows and doors have been upgraded to double glazed to allow the next owners all the benefits of Canberra's varied seasons.

The ground level of this home features the capacity to house 5 vehicles + workshop, as well as a separate rumpus with sauna. This space could be easily utilised as a home office with easy access to the front of the property as well as internal access via an internal staircase.

The property also has a further 3 vehicle - caravan - trailer parking capacity on the southern side of the property.

Bespoke interior timber joinery and detailing contribute warmth and character to a home that is both of its era and timeless.

Pre-Auction considerations and private inspections are welcome.
