Lightness, transparency and harmony abound within this stunning architectural original, sited on the iconic Duffy Street. Signature pendants and up-lights, softly enhance textural walls, rich timber flooring, elevating mood and life. Generous, airy spaces unfold across two levels, as solar passive design creates a temperate cocoon all year round.

Rick Butt loves to entice the landscape within, perfectly orientating homes to capture sunlight and aspect. Built with the Canberra climate in mind, this gorgeous home maximises thermal efficiency, comfortable energy efficient living. The interior planning is thoughtful, with family flexibility in mind, as grand gallery like spaces give way to more intimate nooks, providing a choice of stages for both communion and repose.

The aesthetic balance of this five-bedroom family home is signalled from the get-go, as bespoke timber doors from Thor's Hammer, sit symmetrically within a surrounding of glass. The beautifully designed curved rooflines float above, the home rising from leafy array of mature plantings, blue stone garden wall. A driveway on the left ushers to a triple car garage, complete with through access to the back garden, workshop, storage room combined cellar and convenient internal access.

The unique roofline is just as beautiful within, as intriguing volumes and shapes capture your eye. The home managing to be both airy and cosy, as lofty voids coalesce with the soothing paired back interior, the organic curved walls.

Glass sliders frame a weeping apricot tree, and expansive white walls are the perfect canvas for chosen artwork - the formal living room an elegant place for the grown-ups to sojourn. While to the north the main family hub relaxes into the garden as multiple banks of glass sliders spill to wrap-around outdoor stages, each arena capitalising on seasonal light and shade. The galley style kitchen perfectly placed for easy entertaining, simply finished in crisp white, with banks of storage, anchored by earthy stone worktops.

Two bedrooms sit central and connect to a private parlour room and separate guest bathroom, both wet rooms finished with signature palette of whites, warm neutrals, pearlescent kit-kat tiling and timber laminate vanities. Designed with flexibility in mind, this array of additional rooms performs like an in-house apartment, ideal for guests, older parents, or teen retreat.

The staircase seems to float within the void as stainless wire balustrades further the dynamism of the cathedral like space. Upstairs a duo of large kid's bedrooms captures tree-top views, both with built/in-robes and both adjacent to a family bathroom. A sun-lit second living area or library separates the master bedroom, creating a lovely privacy. Herman Miller twin pendants frame the bed and there is a large walk-in-robe providing seamless storage. The ensuite is all opulence, with double shower and deep relaxing spa bath, set beneath the window.

Green walls privatise and enclose as a combo of decking and paving circumnavigate the home, creating summer and winter enclaves. Vegetables thrive in the raised pod as swells of strappy grasses, green hedging meet slivers of soft green lawn. The sunken fire-pit arena the place to be on cooler Canberra nights, enjoying the warming flames, and a blessing of company beneath the stars.
