Hamptons-inspired, this sophisticated and elegant residence is a true standout in Evatt.
With its stunning gable roofline, weatherboard panelling and barn carriage garage doors, 29 De Lissa Street has long attracted attention from locals.
“There’s nothing else like it,” said selling agent Cris O’Brien, from Home By Holly.
“It’s one of those homes that’s quite iconic in Belconnen. People know it so I’ve had quite a few people call me saying they have been watching this home for years, hoping it would come on the market so they can actually have a look at what it’s like inside.
“The house has evolved since the owners bought it. It has that real Hamptons-style look about it, but the other thing that’s so special about it is the fantastic, magical view of Belconnen and the Brindabellas.”
First built in the 1980s, the five-bedroom home has undergone a significant interior transformation since then.
The renovation included the removal of several internal walls to create a better flowing floorplan, spotted gum hardwood floors, heritage-inspired mouldings and cornices, and a clean neutral palette.
There are generous, open-plan living areas, while the grand formal living and dining room includes an open fireplace, heritage-style windows and access to the lower balcony.
Outside, the backyard includes a weeping cherry tree, raised vegetable beds, a solar-powered water feature, in-built concrete seating and fruit trees, including lemon, lime and mandarin varieties.
Ms O’Brien said hundreds of people had attended the first open for inspection.
“It was insane,” she said.
“There are not many homes like this in Canberra, let alone Belconnen. You’re more likely to find a home like this in the inner-south rather than the Belconnen region, which is why it has attracted so much interest.”
The property is scheduled to go to auction on 5 November at 6.30pm, if not sold prior.
