There’s something about the iconic Canberra duplex that draws a special kind of love, attention and inspiration, each and every time. Whether it’s the adaptability and easily modernised footprint, the potential for enhancement through clever renovations, or the preserved character charm and original features, one thing’s for certain; the dumaresq.duplex is a perfect vision of inner north living.
A striking red brick front facade, framed by the shady oak trees that line Dumaresq Street, leads to a welcoming front porch and gorgeous original home beyond. The simplicity of the exterior does not deter from the precious yet surprisingly large footprint within. Solid double brick construction, sunny original kitchen, slow combustion fireplace, and three large but cosy bedrooms offer versatile, flexible options for family living.
The functional design delivers efficiency of space; vaulted timber stairwell with sky window, light spilling in from the view looking through front to back, visually connecting you with the natural surrounds and lifestyle of the Inner North.
An extensive level garden provides the perfect setting for an urban oasis on the city’s doorstep. With an emphasis on sustainability, the garden design offers paved alfresco areas to enjoy, productive plantings and veggie boxes, space to compost and enjoy the benefits of kitchen-garden living.
The location is yet another drawcard. A cosmopolitan lifestyle against a suburban backdrop and environment awaits you. Dickson is the epicentre of the inner north, with small residential pockets of established homes, shady tree lined streets, beautiful wetlands, local community and the city.
This is the one to make your first inner north home, or a sound property investment, a home to start you off or see you through; the potential is exciting.
