    Finally, the perfect location! An inviting & comfortable home, with a great northern aspect to the rear.

    Situated in a peaceful street lined with Claret Ash, this Canberra red brick cottage has a sunny north aspect to the rear. Set amidst established gardens, on a level block of 694 m2, the 1960 cottage surely has the “cute” factor! Featuring fresh white décor and polished flooring throughout, it offers a welcoming, comfortable environment which can be enjoyed as it is, but also allows wonderful potential for extensions.

    The roomy entry opens into a bright eat-in kitchen which has windows on two sides and overlooks a garden visited by the abundant birdlife, including rosellas and king parrots. The kitchen has plenty of cupboards, an upright electric stove and dishwasher.

    Basking in winter sunlight, the north facing lounge is warmed by a gas heater, built into the original brick fireplace and there is a reverse cycle air conditioner. A pelmet is fitted above double glass doors, which open onto a fantastic deck, overlooking the private rear garden.

    Bedrooms are very spacious and the master is equipped with a wall of built-in robes. Both are fitted with pelmets and modern blinds. The neat bathroom offers a bath and an updated pedestal basin. Rinnai instantaneous hot water is installed.

    In the rear garden, the original garage has been converted to a hobby room, featuring glass doors, full insulation and modern blinds.

    The large, safely enclosed rear garden is a tranquil space with lots of birdlife and features mature apricot and apple trees. There are three garden sheds, and car accommodation is provided in the front garden under a modern shade sail.
    This friendly neighbourhood is the perfect inner north location.

    It is just a stroll to the Gang Gang café at the local Downer shops, and there are two parks with playground equipment nearby. Just an easy walk to the thriving Dickson hub or Watson shops. Walk to Majura Primary and a choice of high schools and colleges, as well as Dickson swimming pool. Sports grounds are situated close by at Southwell Park, with netball and Hockey, as well as the Next Gen gym and enjoy golf or bowls at the nearby Yowani Golf Club. There is a great network of bike paths to the City and the future light rail stop will be located within easy proximity, so another huge drawcard!
