For an air of luxe country living on the doorstep of suburbia, this expansive Hall street estate is the perfect proposition.
Set back from the street on a 2027sqm block with 337sqm of living space, the award-winning property at 21 Hall St is an architectural delight with cathedral ceilings and exposed beams, a clever, flexible floorplan and overtly private outlook.
Selling agent Andrew Potts, from independent Property Group — Gungahlin, says the residential oasis will go to auction next month, with similar smaller homes in the suburb selling previously for around $1.5 million.
“There are a couple of things that stand out about this property, one being the privacy. You’re opposite a reserve so the home, even from the street has complete privacy, as well as really nicely established gardens,” Potts says.
“It’s only within 20 minutes of the Canberra CBD. It’s literally just up the road from suburbia, but it feels like an hour away. It really does feel like a country area, but it’s on the outskirts of the suburbs.
“The expansive nature of the estate with the tennis court, the pool, mature gardens and vegetable patch — you’ve got a lot of segregation and different living spaces. It’s very versatile.”
With five bedrooms, separate living zones and a multipurpose studio under the home with its own entry, Potts says the property is ideal for multi-generational families or those with older children requiring their own space.
The master bedroom has a luxury ensuite, generous wardrobe space and an exclusive shoe cupboard that would make even a Kardashian envious.
Those seeking a spot of recreation at home will revel in the solar-heated swimming pool, which comes complete with a robotic cleaner, and the tennis court with solar lighting.
There is also a chicken run, established fruit trees and a raised vegetable patch, as well as a fishpond, several water tanks and automatic irrigation.
There home itself has ducted gas heating, airconditioning, a wood-burning fireplace in the front lounge, a ducted vacuum system and underneath the house is a room that can be used for storage.
The property, which won 1997 Housing Industry Association and 1999 Master Builders’ Association awards for the best renovation and extension projects, will go to auction on November 2 at 11am.
