Architect designed contemporary family home with views
- 4 Beds

Originally built in 1977 this contemporary two-storey home has undergone many architectural changes and renovations over the years to now offer large open-plan and versatile living spaces while making the most of the hillside position and the panoramic views. Perched on a block of over 1000 square metres the home is surrounded by established easy-care gardens.
For those who love to entertain the home offers many choices both inside and outside. On the entry level the formal lounge room is located at the front of the home. It features a beautiful fireplace and it opens to a private courtyard which is protected by an established white wisteria and mature plantings. The spacious dining room is also at the front of the home and is adjacent to a second sitting room. The dining room has glass on three sides including a stunning picture window. On one side the dining room has access through glass doors to the west facing courtyard and through another set of glass doors has access to the large northern terrace and private garden with a pond and water feature. The second sitting area also opens to the side garden and terrace.
The well-appointed timber kitchen is centrally located to ensure easy access for formal dinner parties, informal family gatherings or alfresco dining. The combined kitchen and family room are located on the northern side of the home and have direct access to a courtyard with built-in barbecue and the back garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is the laundry and a powder room.
Also on the entry level and tucked away at the rear is the private master suite with walk-in robe, ensuite and its own courtyard.
Upstairs is an open plan study and additional living area which opens onto a tiled verandah offering spectacular district and mountain views. Across the back of the home there are three secondary bedrooms, all with built-in robes. These rooms are serviced by the renovated family bathroom.
Vaulted ceilings, timber beams and large picture windows are all features of the home. It has also been freshly painted, the floors have been recently polished and upstairs there is new carpet. Year round comfort is assured with split system air conditioning and electric heating throughout.
An added bonus is the brick double garage with automatic doors. Adjacent to the garage is a large workshop opening onto another courtyard.
Positioned on arguably one of Garran's best streets 64 Brereton Street is only moments to excellent schools, local shops, medical facilities, transport and the nature trails of Red Hill. It is only a short drive to the Woden business precinct and the Parliamentary triangle.
