Scandinavian brothers build stylish hilltop home
Three Finnish brothers built this stunning home on a Canberra hilltop — and, well, it’s all about the finishes.
Owned by one of the brothers and his wife, an interior designer, the four-bedroom home at 24 Numiari Street, Bonner was designed, constructed and presented under the supervision of impeccable eyes — and it shows.

Award-winning architect Jefferson Godfrey designed the home to have a flexible floor plan that maximises natural light and the site’s views over the Gungahlin district and the distant mountains.
An authentically Scandinavian style is evident from the elevation, which offers striking street appeal with its split levels and contemporary outline.
On entry, a light-filled, double-height hallway is warm and welcoming, featuring beautiful stacked stone and recycled timber fittings. The adjacent lounge is a charming, understated space with a fireplace-style mantelpiece and plush decor.
Downstairs, the spacious open-plan living area is an exercise in craftsmanship and taste; particularly the kitchen, finished with 40mm stone bench tops, subway-tile splashbacks, Blackbutt fittings, a Bosch oven and high-quality cabinetry.
This large zone opens to an alfresco area, which has a built-in barbecue and sink, and a lawn area and deck to enjoy those elevated views.
The master suite was naturally designed to a high standard for convenience and comfort. It features a walk-in robe, large ensuite bathroom and direct access to a study nook.
Other features include a butler’s pantry/laundry off the kitchen, a double garage with built-in storage, a rainwater tank, a rumpus room and a 42sqm sub-floor area with light and power.
This home is currently for sale by negotiation with Jonathan Irwin and Greg Amos from Irwin Property.
