    Spacious, inviting home with character in prime location, a short walk to ANU and the City centre!

    In a superb, peaceful location, only steps to the ANU, City centre and overlooking parkland, this spacious 1940’s solid brick home is full of historic character, and is well presented and comfortable. Seamless extension in the 1960’s added a front sitting room, dining area, and the light and airy master bedroom. The home is well sited on a generous level block of approximately 936 m2.

    The covered front terrace has a restful outlook, and the front door opens to a sitting room with solid Jarrah timber flooring a highlight. Interiors have been refreshed in neutral white.

    From the sitting room stacker doors open to the generous, formal lounge/dining, kept cosy by a gas heater installed in the brick fireplace. Picture rails add to the ambience of the era. High ceilings and original internal doors, with a frosted glass panel, feature throughout the home.

    Tranquil views over parkland are framed by a wall of timber framed, sash and picture windows.

    The bright, spacious kitchen features the warmth of cork flooring. An electric stove is installed in the original fireplace recess, and there is an authentic hatch for the milk and bread deliveries of bygone decades. A Bosch stainless steel dishwasher and large pantry are welcome additions.

    Spacious and full of light, the master bedroom is a standout and captures the private outlook from the front of the home, and offers a built-in robe. Three other bedrooms also feature sash windows, the second is fitted with a reverse cycle air conditioner and fourth with a built-in robe.

    Presented in good condition, the bathroom offers a shower and bath, and a separate w/c.

    The separate laundry leads into the large, level rear garden, which is beautifully landscaped and private. Mature Japanese maples, port wine magnolia, crepe myrtle and lemon trees, as well as roses, masses of spring bulbs and hellebores border areas of manicured lawn.

    There is a double garage and Colorbond fencing.

    The prime location is simply unbeatable, only metres to the ANU and short walk into the City centre!

    Owned by the one family over many decades, this character filled home is ready for the next chapter, and presents a rare opportunity to enjoy some of Canberra’s early history in an outstanding City location.
