The Wright finishing touches set modern Molonglo home apart

Modern living at its executive best is on offer in Wright, with a delightful family home full of textural innovation and inviting living areas.

This striking five-bedroom property frames the breathtaking panoramic scenes from Mount Stromlo, over the Molonglo Valley and on to Black Mountain perfectly. The home has been carefully planned to take full advantage of these vistas, using expansive windows with natural light flooding every aspect of the home.

The floor plan aims to offer variety and privacy with six separate communal areas, three inside and three outdoors.

Guests and residents will naturally find themselves congregating around the stylish custom-made kitchen, with wonderful meals created while gazing at Black Mountain Tower and Canberra’s Arboretum. The design includes a built-in microwave and warming oven, so hot food served on cold plates will no longer be a problem.

The formal dining area is another delight, with two alfresco areas welcoming the outside in. The covered patio also features a built-in barbecue, setting the scene for year-round hosting and watching the children play in the low-maintenance backyard thanks to a nifty automatic irrigation system.

The second floor presents a lovely sitting area alongside four bedrooms and a delightful rooftop terrace. This area also features a discrete kitchenette, perfect for a morning coffee in bed or a tea with an evening read. Bathrooms are decorated in a monochrome palette, with slate grey and subway tiling a key feature.

“This home is all about the finer details, such as the woodgrain tiling throughout and 60-millimetre stone bench tops in kitchen. Although the views and location of the house are a standout alone, the finishes throughout the home are what sets it apart from the rest,” says Abbey Ridley, sales associate, Civium Property Group.

“Throughout the construction of this home it was always the builder’s intention to live in the property. You can really feel the high level of finishes and quality in craftsmanship when you walk through,” says Ms Ridley.

We love: The idea of having the upstairs kitchenette for those times when you just need something simple and don’t want to worry about stairs.
