A colonial-style brick house in the tightly-held Canberra suburb of O’Malley is on the market for offers of more than $3 million.
The six-bedroom home at 19 Timbarra Crescent, O’Malley, sits on a sloping 1,907sqm block with views of the thickly forested Red Hill in the distance.
With multiple living and dining rooms, and a fantastic central kitchen, Civium Property Group agent Margaret Reynolds says it’s a perfect home for families who love to entertain.
“It’s sound construction and just a top quality home,” Margaret says. “There’s some really interesting inclusions too, like the massive storage rooms underneath the property.”
A covered porte-cochere protects the front door, where you’ll immediately see a key feature of the residence’s decorating scheme – the colour blue. From feature walls to window trim, benchtops in the kitchen and elegant stone tiling in the bathrooms and walkways, it’s all done in varying shades of blue. It’s a unique way to bring Canberra’s glorious blue skies indoors, and it works perfectly.
Aside from sparkling blue stone waterfall benchtops in the kitchen, the cooking space boasts custom cabinetry, a walk-in pantry and double oven. Thanks to the open-plan design it leads seamlessly over to a joint living and dining area, with bespoke pendant lighting above the dinner table, and easy access to an expansive verandah.
The cosy tiled terrace takes full advantage of breathtaking Canberra views, before leading down to a second al fresco entertaining area. From there head down another flight of stairs for more blue in a pool and tennis court!
The warm hues of the crafted stone terraces contrast beautifully with the brick and the blue eaves of the house, and similar contrasts can be found inside. Italian blue-marbled tiles in the laundry and in each of the four bathrooms continue the theme, from the palest sky blue on the walls to deep, royal blue in the bathroom sinks.
There’s more living space in this residence than just the central, open plan area. French provincial doors lead to a combined study/library space, while a nearby media room has one of the best views on the property thanks to its floor-to-ceiling curved glass feature windows.
With all that it’s no surprise this beautiful brick home, just ten minutes from shops and schools, is attracting attention from all sorts of buyers.
“It’s gotten some fairly good interest,” Margaret explains. “In person and online. We have high expectations.”
Expressions of interest close Thursday, March 4 at 4 pm.
