Large architecturally designed home in the "bush" capital of Australia - Canberra. Our home has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; two sitting areas, one formal and another large more informal sitting area with a dining area off the large kitchen.

This large room has great views across the city and bushland. It has a lovely fireplace and large north facing windows to let in the sun in the winter but evaporative cooling and double glazing to manage the temperature in summer. Modern leather lounge furniture and a 6 seater dining table.

It opens onto a large deck with magic views over bushland; it is a great place to enjoy a wine in the evening and watch the sunset; it has a bar b que and large outdoor table and chairs; lovely to sit out here and have dinner and look at the view.

The kitchen is modern with all appliances and an espresso machine has pride of place. It opens onto the informal family room and dinning area so you are always part of the family.

Our back gate opens onto natural parkland and every day we walk in the park and see wallabies, kangaroos, kookaburras, bower birds and other native animals and birds. Kangaroos are known to feast on our neighbours lawn.

Canberra as the nations capital has amazing museums, galleries, and parliament house. In September/October each year it has the Floriade, the largest flower festival in the southern hemisphere. We are very close to the col climate wine region, great restaurants and 2 hours from the snow fields and the beaches.

We will be happy to exchange cars.

As we have grandchildren staying often we have toys, books, cots, highchairs, children's car seats we are happy to provide access to.
