This contemporary and commanding executive residence sits proudly on a large, elevated block in the heart of Aranda’s eucalypt-lined streets. From the sweeping horizontal planes and cantilevers greeting you on arrival to the seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces, every detail of this stunning home showcases its clean and considered design, the craftsmanship and high quality of materials.
The project brief was to provide a high-end contemporary Australian vernacular home. The moment you step inside, the spacious 515m2 Bindaga residence will take your breath away, with its double-height entry void and architectural solid timber and glass spiral staircase.
As you move through this exquisite family home, Bindaga’s elegant and timeless design will continue to command your attention. Ascending from the grandeur of the entry hall to the first-floor living spaces, the stone benchtops and natural timbers used in the joinery and flooring create a warm and inviting atmosphere for family mealtimes and recreation.
Integrated with the clean and elegant indoor living areas is an outdoor space blending polished-stone tiling with beautifully detailed solid timber posts and a rugged stone wall that conjures up the granite boulders of Canberra’s surrounding geology.
Bindaga includes a generous theatre room with a dark palette, designed to suit the desired mood of the space. Fitted out with the latest technology and amenities, it is a well-executed experience.
Incorporating high-level environmental principles, the external cladding sits well within the context of the street. High-grade, double-glazed large windows open up the building for excellent crossflow ventilation and take advantage of the views and surrounds. Performance insulation throughout guarantees a quality outcome in terms of acoustics and thermal properties.
Imagine the best that Canberra’s Inner North offers, wrap that in mature eucalypt forests and nestle it at the foot of a mountain…and call it Aranda. Named after the Arrernte people of central Australia, Aranda is 10 minutes from both the City and Westfield Belconnen, close to universities and moments away from myriad recreational escapes.
Aranda boasts two schools, a preschool, two churches and a vibrant local retail offering which includes a café, bar, artisanal homewares shop and yoga studio.
