Slice of paradise in the heights of Garran

Set on a quiet cul-de-sac backing Red Hill, this architect designed split-level home is sure to impress. With soaring ceilings, timber features, and picture windows it has been cleverly designed to enjoy a spectacular garden setting from every room. The complete sense of privacy and serenity afforded by these stunning woodland gardens is unbeatable.

Designed in 1977 by architect Willemsen, this home effortlessly combines contemporary features with modern amenities. An entertainer's delight, the 305sqm home benefits from multiple living spaces, both formal and informal. As you enter the home a formal living room with vaulted ceilings and a brick fireplace gives the space a warm and cosy feel. This south-westerly facing room enjoys light filtering in from the wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows with an uninterrupted view of the front terrace and Brindabellas beyond. An adjoining library with built-in-bookshelves is the ideal spot for a study or sitting area.

A separate formal dining room leads you from the living room to the kitchen and family room. The kitchen is a dream for home chefs with built-in Miele stainless steel appliances, conventional and steam ovens, dishwasher, four plate induction cooktop, microwave with grill and plate warming drawer, stone benchtops, and a walk-in butler's pantry. The space feels light and open with the kitchen overlooking the family room, and plenty of room for an informal living and dining space. Picture windows bring the outdoors in, and there is direct access to the paved north-facing outdoor entertaining space, with a pond and waterfall; perfect for alfresco dining or simply enjoying your garden oasis.

Upstairs you will find another living space that truly makes you feel like you're in the treetops, and is ideal for the children to have their own space to relax or play. The four double bedrooms have built-in-robes and views of the Brindabellas or the majestic gardens. The master suite enjoys large windows, placing you right in the middle of the lush and colourful gardens. An ensuite and walk in robe makes this room a dream parents' retreat. The modern main bathroom enjoys mountain views, and a separate laundry includes plenty of storage and access straight to the hills hoist and paved courtyard.

Downstairs you will find a self-contained flat with a private side entry. The flat includes a living room, fully equipped kitchen, a double bedroom with a built-in-robe, and an ensuite. Whether you use this space for multi generational living, a complete guest suite, or simply as a fifth bedroom, you are sure to benefit from the extra space.

If the home at 42 Couvreur Street is a prized jewel, the gardens surrounding the home are the crown. Over 40 years the current owners have lovingly cultivated a picturesque garden oasis with so much to discover through winding paths, terraces, and a small lawn. Not only are you provided with maximum privacy, and direct access to Red Hill Nature Reserve, the gardens create their own microclimate that results in natural cooling of the house in summer. The careful design of the landscaping, including an automatic drip and spray irrigation system, keeps the gardens healthy and happy year round.The gardens were selected for showing during Canberra's 2019 Open Gardens scheme

It is difficult to think of what more you could want in a home. Its unique character, from the woodland gardens to the striking architectural features, is sure to charm all. The feeling of privacy and serenity in this home is unmatched. The location in a tightly held pocket of Garran is ideal; close to local schools, shops, and arterial roads. As the current owners have found, in their 40 years living in this one-of-a-kind home, the next family to call this paradise their own will never want to leave.
