Sleek and stylish, these brand-new, meticulously-designed homes command attention from the outset.
The three residences on the dress circle site at 54 Jacka Crescent in Campbell marry family living with timeless charm in Canberra’s inner north. Two of the three homes remain for sale.
The house at 54a – dubbed ‘The Statesman’ – is set on a 526sqm block with 300sqm of living space, while 54b – ‘The Esquire’ – offers 289sqm of living space on a 392sqm lot.
The first home offers a Hamptons-styled four-bedroom home with multiple living areas across two floors, timber flooring and neutral tones, with both bathrooms fitted with underfloor heating.
Built for downsizers, the second home is a five-bedroom, two-bathroom proposition with the master bedroom and two living areas on the ground floor, enabling the home to be used exclusively on the lower level. The remaining bedrooms are located upstairs.
Selling agent Josh Morrissey, from HIVE Canberra, said the residences had been designed by esteemed Canberra architect, Terry Ring, with foresight and clarity.
“One of the best drawcards would be the play on scale and the use of light. Terry is renowned for playing with scale very, very well and getting the right amount of light into the room,” Mr Morrissey said.
“The functionality of the floorplan is definitely one of the key points. He’s managed to get three homes on the block and they are all 200sqm-plus of living. He’s made them all feel completely separate.”
Mr Ring said his inspiration for the site was to create three distinctly different homes that captured views but retained a sense of privacy.
“With the houses I’m designing, I’m selling houses that are now 20 years old and they still look good. I think that’s the key is to make sure you’re designing something that’s going to look good in the future,” Mr Ring said.
“I think too much [of what] we’re doing is [saying], ‘here’s a building for you, I’ve designed it for you, now live in it’. Architecture is about finding people design form and I think that’s what we’re trying to capture here.”
Both properties have 2500-litre water tanks, security alarm system and ducted, zoned heating and cooling.
Mr Morrissey is taking offers and expects the properties to fetch between $1.9 million and $2.2 million. The rear property at 54c sold for more than $2 million.
