Located in a Dress Circle position in southwestern Canberra, a Pearce house and studio with northerly aspect and valley views has been sold for $1.34 million.

It was sold on July 25 by Andrew Paton from EthicsRealEstate.com.au.

Located at 3 Anstey St, it was formerly inhabited by two of Canberra's most famous cultural identities: internationally acclaimed contemporary artist Rosalie Gascoigne, and her equally esteemed husband, astronomer Ben Gascoigne.

Designed by local Canberra Architect Theo Bischoff, it was designed to be solar passive, light filled and spacious, all on one level and features high ceilings, walls of glass, and warm natural finishes of brick and timber throughout.

The house comes with three bedrooms, north facing living areas, private walled courtyard, and updated kitchen with stainless steel benches.

Separate from the main house, the large studio is suitable for adaptation to a work from home office, gym, teenage retreat or additional accommodation purposes. 

The outdoor living options include a north facing covered patio and the private internal courtyard.

It is close to good schools, shopping and dining experiences, and set in the foothills of Mount Taylor Nature Reserve.

The house previously sold in 2010 for $935,000.

The suburb's median house price sits at $835,000, according to CoreLogic.
