A stylish duplex designed and renovated for modern living

This stylish home was once a part of the Australian National University development that was built to house the academic staff in the 1960's. Built around a common green the development was cleverly designed to encourage a tight-knit community which still continues today.
The current owner has spared no expense in renovating the two-storey duplex. It is nestled into well-established gardens opening onto parkland. This outdoor idyll provides a screen to the outside world, creating a tranquil and private home. Centrally located amongst the leafy streets of Hughes, this sophisticated terrace home presents a great opportunity for a relaxed lifestyle.
Architect designed changes have cleverly transformed this home into a stylish and modern terrace home rarely found in Canberra. It offers light-filled and north-facing living areas including a well-appointed open-plan kitchen, dining area and an inviting living room that opens seamlessly through timber doors onto the spacious deck and vine covered pergola making it perfect for entertaining. Also on the ground level is a cleverly concealed laundry and a powder room. Upstairs is the master bedroom with study nook, a second double bedroom and a third bedroom that has had a wall removed to create a second north-facing living area. These rooms are all serviced by the family bathroom.
Tilt and turn double glazed windows on the upper level and new insulation to the roof space and the wall cavities ensure power bills will be kept to a minimum. Heating and cooling is provided by a split system upstairs and a slow combustion fire and gas wall heater downstairs. An added bonus is the under-floor heating to the laundry and powder room.
Located only moments from transport, local shops, excellent schools and opening onto parkland this property would be perfect for those looking for sophistication, character and energy efficiency in a convenient location.
Don't miss this opportunity to just move in and enjoy this fabulous separate title home which is an easy walk to Woden, the hospital precinct and only a short drive to the Parliamentary triangle and the CBD.
