North facing entertainers delight with historic charm

This piece of Canberra history combines heritage and modern amenities to create an ideal family home and entertainers' delight. In the 1920s & 30s the structure that is now 2 Solander Place was used by students of the Australian Forestry School as a dining hall and kitchen. This history remains in the unique cottage style of the exterior, however inside you'll find a spacious modern home with great separation of space and all of the charm of Canberra history.

At 2 Solander Place you are absolutely spoilt with living space. Upon entry you are greeted with a sun drenched formal lounge room that looks out through timber framed picture windows to the tree lined street. This conveniently placed lounge flows into the two other versatile living spaces that are separated by a split level. With the family room looking over the dining room, or vice versa, you can rearrange this spacious hub of the home in whichever way you would like, and benefit from the strategically placed skylights, gas fireplace, and gorgeous vaulted ceilings.

The renovated kitchen looks out onto the covered back terrace which utilises a Vergola to provide shade in the warmer months. This outdoor entertaining space is very private with high hedges, and blends perfectly with the inside living and dining, making the floorplan an entertainers' dream.

The eastern side of the home offers three secondary bedrooms that all include carpets, built-in-robes and with two of them providing a degree of privacy from the living spaces. These bedrooms are serviced by the large main bathroom renovated in 2016, a separate laundry with external access, and plenty of linen closets for storage. The master suite is located on the western side of the home, enjoying separation of space, a built-in-robe, a renovated ensuite with a double shower, and access to a private shaded courtyard with a spa.

You will delight in all that is to be found in this sprawling outdoor space with multiple versatile areas and features. The central Vergola is perfect for entertaining while the Hills hoist, vegetable garden, and garden shed are hidden in the back of the yard away from guests. An enclosed carport and the private side courtyard with spa are added bonuses as well as the garage that is currently being used as a spacious home studio.

The studio is fully enclosed with it's own hot water system, a split system air conditioning unit, a fully equipped bathroom, and a kitchenette. This space is perfect for a teenage retreat, multi-generational living, music room or home office. The possibilities are endless!

With an ideal location in prestigious Yarralumla just moments from Lake Burley Griffin and the popular local shops, close to the local primary school, and public transport, as well as a short drive from the Woden and City Centres, this home is perfect for families or professional couples. You won't want to miss out on this slice of Canberra history.
