Modern Deakin house a surefire auction hit

The ACT’s auction market will see some lively action at the end of the month with the auction of a stately, 938sqm residence on the books.

The four-bedroom house is expected to reach more than $2.5 million, and Blackshaw agent Mario Sanfrancesco says there’s been plenty of interest locally and interstate.

1 Macartney Crescent, Deakin’s modern exterior is beautifully framed by established gardens and mature trees. On the inside, a grand entrance takes you into a spacious open foyer, where a bespoke blackbutt staircase is surrounded by six-metre-high windows.

“The owners lived here for many years before they rebuilt the place,” Mario says.

“As soon as you walk in it has a great feeling, it presents a wonderful lifestyle. There’s lots of natural light and a wonderful feeling of space.”

Designed by an award-winning Canberra design agency, the soaring height of the ceilings and double-glazed bifold doors sand windows capture warmth and light, while underfloor heating and cooling keep you comfortable no matter the weather.

Cooks will love the gourmet kitchen and its long island counters, plus the butler’s pantry and flexibility of induction and gas cooking alongside built-in pyrolytic and separate steam ovens.

On the left of the estate is a comfortable living room with a cosy wood fireplace. This homey charm is beautifully contrasted by stone floors and modernist wall lighting, while bifold doors open up to allow seamless access to the outside.

The master bedroom is found on the first floor, and hosts a designer walk-in robe and a lavish ensuite – complete with a freestanding bathtub! The rest of the bedrooms can be found on the second floor. Ascending that beautiful blackbutt staircase leads to three additional bedroom options, two bathrooms, and a living room with its own balcony. 

The central location has made this prestigious property extremely attractive – it’s minutes from public transport, Canberra’s top schools, the Deakin and Manuka shops and the Parliamentary triangle.

This two storey beauty will go to auction on Saturday, February 27 at 2 pm.
