Approached by a lane lined with majestic oak trees, in a whisper quiet location and within a heritage listed precinct, it may seem hard to believe you’re literally moments from the heart of our vibrant modern city, enjoying life in this renovated and extended three bedroom plus study, 1924 Canberra cottage.
Located in Canberra’s first garden precinct, giving life to Walter Burley Griffin’s garden city vision, here is a piece of Canberra’s history that offers an ultra-convenient lifestyle, in a street that has changed little over the past 90 years.
Designed to provide a warm and comfortable living environment, the home balances the character of yesteryear with the comfort of modern day innovation.
Instantly impressive interiors showcase high ceilings, Tasmanian oak flooring and sash windows, combining to invoke a sense of timeless charm.
A kitchen/family room extension is embraced by the morning sun, while offering a leafy outlook to its secluded rear yard.Interacting enticingly with outdoors, this is the hub of the home for day to day living and the ideal setting for enjoying sleepy Sundays in slippers and sunshine.
A well planned garden of meandering pathways is planted with roses, camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, a majestic loquat tree and features raised vegetable beds, a timber shed, greenhouse and what is possibly Canberra’s prettiest cubby house.
Why not consider that where time has previously been spent in traffic congestion and searching for parking spaces, you can now invest this time enjoying casual strolls along tree lined streets, through nearby parks and being where you want to be?
A tightly held precinct where homes aren’t bought and sold – they’re bought and kept.
