8 Carrington St, Deakin: 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 674 square metres, Price: By negotiation
There is something special about the tree-lined streets of Canberra's inner south. One only needs to take a drive beneath the stunning canopies which envelop the streets to see this.
In recent years, many of these streets have been transformed, from being lined by modest three-bedroom houses to deluxe new builds. Perhaps more than most, the Chinese-elm lined Carrington Street has felt this transformation.
Built over 2017 and 2018 by Independent Constructions and designed by architect Alex D'Ambrosio, this awe-inspiring residence is sure to leave you stunned with its chic industrial-inspired style that exudes the best in contemporary design.
The home has been cleverly designed and showcases various materials, with Master Builders ACT awarding it the 2019 award for best use of materials for a residential build. It spans over 375 square metres with open plan living areas, four-metre ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows.
When you walk in you are met by what is, no doubt, a standout design feature of the home - a black, steel staircase. Your eyes then travel to the high windows which provide an outlook to a private courtyard and pool.
Warehouse-inspired features include exposed steel beams, exposed ductwork and polished concrete floors - which were highlighted in the Master Builders ACT win.
"The exquisite polished concrete floor finish in this Deakin home was achieved by methodically polishing it several times prior to the final step; an off-white cement and 'Cowra Quartz' stone completed the unique appearance," a winner's statement reads.
With concrete floors comes a fear of cold feet, but there is no need to worry about that as there is zoned in-slab heating throughout. The home also features two gas fireplaces.
The home is fitted out with quality brand-name appliances such as Miele, Sub Zero, Wolf and Qasair.
Looking at the finer details there are high-end finishes including a Calacatta Gold stone bench top, imported Italian marble floors, a blue cobblestone driveway and Tallowwood decking.
It has a range of high-tech features such as a home automation system, solar roof panels and an intercom system with a colour camera at the front door.
The master suite is a dream, featuring its own private courtyard, a massive walk-in wardrobe and luxe ensuite with a below-ground bath.
While the master suite is spectacular, the other bedrooms are also spacious and each features an ensuite. The outside entertaining area is where the home truly shines, with an alfresco area that is perfect for those who love entertaining.
The centrepiece of the yard is a swimming pool, complemented by lavish imported Turkish marble exterior pavers. It's a great place to spend the summer months, or a balmy winter day - as the pool is heated. What's even more impressive is that ducted heating and air-conditioning also extends out to the alfresco area.
And when you're not frolicking in the pool you enjoy a book in the cabana and a craft beer from the outdoor bar fridge.
The house is currently for sale by negotiation and inspections can be made via appointment.
