A Canberra home described as a “prized jewel” has hit the market with a unique selling point: it has its own microclimate.

The architecturally designed property at 42 Couvreur Street, Garran, ACT features five bedrooms, three bathrooms and soaring ceilings.

And while timber features are seen throughout the home, listing agents Nicky Symon and Emily Tindal from RayWhite say the real star of the home is its surroundings.

“It has been cleverly designed to enjoy a spectacular garden setting from every room. The complete sense of privacy and serenity afforded by these stunning woodland gardens is unbeatable,” the listing reads.

“Over 40 years the current owners have lovingly cultivated a picturesque garden oasis with so much to discover through winding paths, terraces, and a small lawn. Not only are you provided with maximum privacy, and direct access to Red Hill Nature Reserve, the gardens create their own microclimate that results in natural cooling of the house in summer.”

The gardens have been selected for showing during Canberra’s 2019 Open Gardens scheme, with the house looking out onto a waterfall and pond feature, along with the gardens and mountain views.

Inside, the home has a formal dining room and a home chef’s “Dream” kitchen featuring Miele appliances.

The Canberra home also features a standalone granny flat with private entry.

The home will head to auction on Saturday 24 October, with inspections open at 9:30am.
