In which region of Canberra is a house going to cost you around $1.2m? If you said the inner south, well played.

But what if you have a good chunk of cash to spend and don’t want to become part of the Red Hill, Manuka or Griffith elite? (Kingston Foreshore is a different story, obvs).

Here are your $1.6m (or slightly less) options across the capital:

1. This eight-bedroom house, almost on top of Gungahlin Town Centre.

Ready to move straight into if you have a Kardashian-sized family, or you could get super savvy and break this Anthony Rolfe Avenue property down into three separate ways to make money. The three-storey building encompasses a five-bedroom home, a commercial premises on the ground floor and a separate fully-furnished, one-bedroom executive apartment.

That’s a place to run a business, live with the family, and have an older relative self-contained in their own apartment. Winning.

2. This luxurious four-bedroom home in The Valley (Molonglo that is).

The front retainer wall is made from blue stone from Wee Jasper. The towel racks are filled with oil that heats your bath sheets. Brands like DeLonghi, Villeroy & Boch, Miele, Caeserstone and Verosol feature in every room. And then there’s the lighting above the bath [insert love heart emoji eyes]. 

Beyond the luxurious detail, what your money truly buys you in the valley is a huge block – 870sqm to be exact – so if you want an ‘exhale’ home, spend your money in Molonglo.

3. This brand new townhouse in the very inner north. With four bedrooms, no less.

Convinced your big cheque wouldn’t buy you much in the inner north? Wrong. You know, just a brand new townhouse with FOUR BEDROOMS on the doorstep of Teddy Picker’s, Lantern Rooms, Pedlar’s and Knead. Where do we sign?
