A home of shared experiences. 125 Madigan Street holds memories that are familiar to us all, especially growing up in the Inner North suburbs of Canberra. The brick veneer construction, 1960’s character details, the sprawling back yard – similarities of time, differences of culture, yet experiences that have played a part for all of us growing up.
As so often is the case, Dan’s family migrated to Australia during the 1950s eventually finding their place in Canberra, Hackett became home and Dan’s grandparents house was focal to the family experience.
Just as Dan grew up spending a multitude of happy times in Hackett, I’m sure many of us can remember visits to our grandparents home, sent outside to play, riding bikes from front to back on strips of concrete, back yard cricket across the green lawn and family gatherings held in the front loungeroom.
When the opportunity arose, it wasn’t hard for Dan and Angelique to move into Madigan Street and create their own family memories. Dan’s happy times growing up became part of his own children’s experience – a safe neighbourhood, a sense of community living close by to the shops and schools, and a connection to bush with many adventures in the bush reserve.
Special to the home is the enduring beauty of the timber floors. The strong connection between generations is inlaid. Dan’s grandfather, a Hungarian master craftsman, individually crafted the beautiful parquetry floors found in the living rooms.
The craftsmanship is evident in the detailing, with feature mantle and exquisite parquetry floors, ornate tiled wet areas and bespoke interior design features.
This twice extended spacious home is in the heart of Canberra’s inner north. Robust in its construction, it is a house built to last. Large living rooms, flexible accommodation with two separate bathrooms and outdoor covered alfresco offering multiple living and lifestyle options.
Hackett is a suburb with 1960’s vintage, privately built homes ideally located. This is a place you want to live. Whether searching for a quiet sleepy street or looking to pick up the pace, a home positioned on the doorstep of the Mt Majura Reserve and within reach of Canberra’s vibrant city offers much potential for families.
