Not my style at ALL. Too blank and unwelcoming. Some of the landscaping is nice but overdone.

Nms. I like old houses with charm. It's a bit sterile.

Oh, I'd take it in a heartbeat..look at all the storage, and more than one bathroom between the 4 of us...sheer luxury.

Not sure about the current fascination with building sans eaves either. I thought it was only if you ran out of a) money or b) space on your block, and this house really doesn't have to deal with either of these issues.

It is a little safe looking for me too.  But it's not really a family home, is it?  

It is very much in the diplomat style you see in Yarralumla.  Like this one I was having a sticky beak at the other day: http://www.allhomes.com.au/ah/act/sale-res...a/1316859189011

I like it. I think it's really liveable in terms of space, storage and layout. Did I mention storage.

It looks too clean. DS wouldn't be happy in a sterile house. Though he would have fun chalking on the clean creme tiles outside, drawing with texta all over the sterile white kitchen cupboards and pouring his red cordial all over the beige carpets.
But once he's done with that, it would be too boring for him me thinks. I dont think a pool could win him over either. Besides, like PP said, why on earth would I want to live in the ACT?
Maybe if this mansion was located in NSW, I might think about it. Anyone else finding the land size in-cre-di-ble tiny? How on earth can they fit a pool with that????

Not tiny, it's 900 something sq mtrs, that's decent.

I don't mind Canberra, the house nms. I really don't like the position on the bathroom, no windows.

Ummm 936 m² (approx) I don't think is that tiny. Most suburban blocks in my city are around 400m² to 600m² in size and a massive percentage have pools. Granted its not massive either for a luxury house but I doubt Thérèse Rein or Kevin Rudd had much time to spend enjoying the gardens.

Actually thinking about it considering the family's wealth of $200m+ the house seems kinda understated and small but I guess it is only one of their residences....  tongue.gif  (oh to have the dilemma of which house to live in) but I'd take it any day - just would have to get rid of the wallpaper in the dinning room. The bathroom storage almost brings me to tears.....

As an aside I wonder if the house has been 'dressed' for sale as the Rudd's apparently moved out 18 months ago so presumably all their belongs went with them which is why it would look bland and sterile. Photos, artworks, the ugly crochet blanket from Grandma etc all gone. It may also be rented at the moment.

Our block is 680, has a similar sized house but on one level and a pool.  Small yard though.

900 is big, especially with a double storey house.

I like the interior, exterior is NMS but ok.

Since when is 936m2 small block. It is pretty much the classic 1/4 acre block, and given many suburban blocks are not as big as 1/4 acre, I am not sure why it is thought of as small.

Am I missing something, why isn't it a family home?

I like the front lounge room, the wallpaper on the dining room wall would make me ill though.

the big sideboard in the family room/kitchen looks kind of out of place
