A Reid Treasure!
Privately nestled behind the front hedge, and positioned in a peaceful, wide and tree lined street, number 33 offers a timeless design which incorporates many special period features.
Built in circa 1928, the well-presented heritage home sits comfortably to the front of the substantial block of approximately 1289 m2 of much sought after Reid land. The sheer size, allowing scope for enhancements, only limited by your vision and imagination.
With a welcoming front façade and portico, the home is of double brick construction, with terracotta roof tiles.
Upon entry, the warmth of richly polished solid timber floors set the scene. The beautiful formal lounge room features a slow combustion fire-place with original mantle, while timber sash windows, bakerlite switches, high battened ceilings, a decorative ceiling rose and picture rails all add style and ambience.
Flowing on, there is a delightful sun room which offers flexibility of family uses, the attractive kitchen with practical walk in pantry, a rear enclosed vestibule, plus a large and separate laundry.
Both of the two main bedrooms are generous in size, while the third has previously been utilised as the dining room, and displays an optional link to the kitchen, with a former servery window.
The bathroom has enjoyed a tasteful and thoughtful renovation, which proudly features tiles in keeping with the era when this elegant home was built.
There is a single lock up garage, and plenty of room for additional off street car parking.
The property offers great potential for renovations and extensions. The block is flat and largely tree-less, so if extended, the home may be able to capture the northern aspect along the side boundary. All adjustments would need to be undertaken along the suburban guidelines, with appropriate government approvals.
A pleasant stroll takes you directly into the Central Business District, with its café’s, restaurants and shops, while the Australian War Memorial, iconic Anzac Parade, Lake Burley Griffin and Mt Ainslie are nearby. In area for a selection of excellent schools.
