    Elegantly renovated residence; an estate in the Inner South

    Arguably Canberra’s and the Inner South’s most charming street and sought-after enclave. Barkly Crescent with its famous canopy of Spanish Oaks boasts an amazing fully renovated residence with garden cottage set in manicured park-like grounds of over 2000m2.

    An enlarged home offering the charm and character of the 1927’s era but all the amenities of a brand-new home. Spacious accommodation includes large separate sitting and dining rooms boasting beautiful engineered timber floors, a master-chef’s kitchen, fully equipped butler’s pantry with separate entrance and family room glassed to invite the northerly light and garden vistas inside.

    The main bedroom suite has an incredible ensuite with private garden courtyard, large separate dressing room with abundant wardrobes. There are three additional bedrooms, one also ensuited, and large office or nursery adjacent to main bedroom.

    Also on this estate is a new studio/cottage with studio/workshop facilities, bathroom and kitchenette style area. A large verandah captures its own private north-facing garden.

    A spectacular covered alfresco barbeque area overlooks the superbly landscaped garden and sparkling in-ground pool.
