    City Location, heritage charm!

    Privately positioned on an expansive 1498m2 block, on a pretty tree lined street and conveniently located on edge of the City Centre, you’ll be immediately enchanted by the eclectic mix of heritage-style and modern amenity offered in this extended and renovated four-bedroom, two-bathroom family home with carport and double garage. Featuring a northerly aspect to the front, the dappled light throughout the day provides a true sense of home.

    Original 1930’s charm, including double brick, formal rooms, sash windows, decorative ceilings, timber flooring and picture rails are evident throughout the original part of the home, whilst the architecturally designed extension caters for modern life with high ceilings, sky lights, open-plan living with a slow combustion stove, modern appliances and a breakfast bar in the kitchen along with beautiful French doors leading out to the paved alfresco entertaining area.

    The large, flat back yard is perfect for the kids and/or pets and holds potential for the ACT Government’s new Territory Plan allowing for formal subdivision. This tightly held street is close to amenities including The Canberra Centre, the Light Rail, The Australian National University, local sought after schools and the thriving Braddon precinct with cafés, bars and restaurants so you can leave your car at home and walk or cycle to your favourite destination!
