Your own private oasis in the inner north!

Surrounded by outstanding natural beauty and overlooking parkland, this expressive four-bedroom ensuite home is arrayed across two levels, with the serene master suite sequestered on the top floor. Beautifully curated interior courtyards blur the boundaries between outside-and-in, and there is a decided East Asian design flair that welcomes balance and harmony.

Privacy and seclusion abound despite the home's fabulous locale, moments from the much-loved Watson shops and the dynamic Dickson and Braddon precincts. This wonderful enclave places you a few steps from Mary Kitson Playground, moments from Watson Woodlands and the walking trails of Mount Majura, creating a country village feel despite the easy proximity to the CBD.

A beautifully planted verge sets the scene, the home rising from lush gardens, heavy with sea daisies, bottle brush, banksia, shady Japanese maples. There is a private driveway ushering to double garage with internal access. A path entices past the leafy green array, gifting a private and lush entry sequence. A slate tiled column marks the entry portico as welcoming front door with sidelights opens onto a foyer, with cut-outs gifting peek-a-boo sightlines into the living arena.

Bespoke glazing's dot the walls, welcoming light and framing nature at every turn, with glass sliders opening onto a balance of tranquil courtyard spaces. The ground floor housing two living areas and a dining room, all encircling a contemporary kitchen and spilling to a sheltered deck, sunny garden nooks. Trickling water features, fishpond, bespoke timber seating and walls of green, create dreamlands of peace and calm to retreat and gather.

Finished in soft oatmeal tones with terrazzo worktops and glass splashback, the kitchen has a generous provision of space for cooking and brims with quality appliances including a Fisher & Paykel 90 cm pyrolytic oven and Bosch dishwasher. There is a tonne of storage including a clever under-stair walk-in-pantry/storage area.

We love the jewel tones of the mandarin feature wall behind the wood fireplace which brings a glowing warmth to the house in the colder months. And the seclusion of the two bedrooms housed on the eastern side, each with built-in-robes for seamless storage and painterly botanical views. A beautiful family bathroom with spa bath, separate powder room and internal laundry complete the ground floor.

Lofty voids, clerestory windows and the embrace of surrounding mountain ranges immerses the upstairs wing within a natural majesty. The enormous master suite flowing to an elevated balcony, with panoramic views across parkland and out to the Brindabellas. The whole room washed with stunning pink and orange hues come sunset, and always a harmony of ever-changing light and splendour. The walk-thru-robe is cleverly tucked behind a bed-head wall, and flows effortlessly to a secret ensuite bathroom, finished in soothing whites. An additional bedroom sits adjacent - a versatile space, perfect as both home office or soothing nursery.

Surrounded by playgrounds and parks and close to reserve, the home is also handy to the popular Watson shops, with local favs including - great coffee, fabulous pizza at The Knox, and the Filipino eatery, Lola and Lola. It is an easy walk to Exhibition Park, host to the famous Farmer's Market and the home and a short drive from the Dickson and Braddon precincts, ANU and the CBD. A brand new, inclusive play space and recreational park is forthcoming, and the home is also convenient to a mix of private and public schools, close to transport, including the light rail, linking you to the metro city station and the whole of Canberra.
