A picture-perfect facade.

A huge garage.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom dream home has sleek modern lines, refined fittings and fixtures as well as all the technology you’d expect from a home of this calibre.

As well as a hi-tech photocatalytic coating that self-cleans the exterior concrete of the tri-level home of surface dirt and grime (it sounds almost too good to be true!), there is a resort-style swimming pool and spa, cabana and outdoor kitchen; and wine cellar.

“It’s like a six-star resort,” says selling agent Stephen Thompson, from LJ Hooker Manuka.

“Overall, the best feature is the quality. It was built by the owner’s father and it’s been put together to a really high standard.

Large living.

Views of the pool.

“It’s got a high-end kitchen with a butler’s pantry which is probably bigger than most kitchens.”

Constructed three years ago, the contemporary home offers 389sqm of living space and sophisticated security, including six surveillance cameras, an alarm system, two-way intercom and an armoured stone clad front door.

There is a smart home system with zoned remote controls, a wall mounted touch screen and a smart device Control4 application, in addition to underfloor heating, motorised blinds and reverse cycle airconditioning.

Entertain in style.

Bedroom bliss.

The automatic irrigation system is plumbed to a 20,000 litre underground water tank.

“The garage is exceptional. They’ve dug down under so it has the basement parking, which is massive and they’ve even put in this glass feature so from the basement you can look through and see inside the swimming pool,” Thompson says.

The home has won building awards, including the Master Builders Association Custom Built Home in the ACT and Region in 2018 and the Housing Industry Association Outdoor Project of the Year in the ACT the same year.
