C5 is coming of age, a vibrant connected precinct that shoulders the beautiful established suburb of Campbell.
The creswell.home finds itself right amongst it. Canberra has grown and matured as a city, vibrant precincts have evolved and suburban areas are enhanced by connection to these. The established home and garden allotment of 12 Creswell Street has the best of both worlds; with leafy garden surrounds directly connected to the energetic cosmopolitan C5.
I remember when the precinct was just an open space, a paddock between the suburb streets of Campbell and the lake. Living in Campbell at the time, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the development, the influx of apartments into the suburban landscape.
It’s hard to believe in a short 5 years the precinct is close to completion. The gardens are on their way to being established, the park is green and full of life, and what was once a concept for a high density development that long standing residents were watching evolve before them, has proven itself to be of substantial value to Canberrans.
The valued open space that locals felt so protective of has been sensitively and carefully curated to become what is now the most beautiful expanse of parkland. It has successfully achieved connectivity to the established suburb streets and the precinct, so much so that it has become a meeting place for all.
The creswell.home is now placed in the most premium position of all. Directly across from Hassett Park, right in the heart of all the action and lifestyle of cosmopolitan living, is privately screened by established gardens and a majestic snow gum. Renovation or reinvention, the home awaits its coming of age into the decades to come.
