If you’re a hopeless romantic, or romanticise about living in a beautiful heritage style home, the angas.home will stir romantic notions with it’s meandering paths and hidden pockets, romantic archways and charming character details.
Nestled within a secret garden behind an established, private facade is an early Canberra Tocumwal cottage which has been both carefully and faithfully preserved for nearly 70 years. Crafted with a warm, charming aesthetic and modernised to meet the needs of contemporary living, this beautiful home offers a serene and tranquil haven on the fringe of the city.
You can’t help but to be charmed by the Tocumwal home, beautifully preserved with seamless and sympathetic changes made over time. An abundance of natural light works to create a warm and inviting atmosphere while still retaining an air of understated elegance. The front facade with decorative red brick pillars, enclosed verandah and French doors invites you in. Retaining the original timber detailing with fireplace and hearth, high battened ceilings and precious timber floors, the original cottage has been extended to accommodate four bedrooms, two bathrooms, family kitchen, and front lounge room.
There is so much love for the connected living spaces which spill onto the alfresco decking through French doors. The enticement of the romantic gardens is compelling, as they conjure a sense of timelessness and weathered beauty. A sun drenched terrace, paved in redbrick and stone worn by years of daily use, is interwoven with garden blooms scented by wafts of lavender and roses, dappled by the shade of deciduous mature trees. The huge plot is scattered with shady established trees, lawn, vegetable garden, garden sheds and all the key elements that make up an ‘essential Ainslie’ property.
From the bird’s eye view the location is revealed, at this vantage point it’s possible to see the city, and Canberra beyond. You can walk or ride your bike everywhere, indulge yourself in Braddon’s thriving cafe, bar and restaurant culture, stroll to the parks and reserves close by, pop into Civic to shop, enjoy the city’s cultural and community events and walk your children to nearby schools.
