At the end of the year, when you thought it was all over, a Christmas miracle appears.
Any unusual and happy event that takes place during December is the Christmas miracle – just when you thought all the properties had come to an end for the year the most beautiful red brick cottage appears.
Why do we save the best to last? Why do fireworks put the big burst at the end, or place the Christmas star on top of the tree as the final piece? why do we eat dessert last?
The phenomenon in psychology is called the peak-end bias – happiness is all about the ending.
What is there not to make you happy about this charming red brick duplex? The warm and intimate light filled spaces connect with the private leafy established gardens and offer the perfect home full of character, meticulously preserved and modernised, to enjoy the Ainslie lifestyle.
If the peak end rule applies to Ainslie, and the experience is all about the ending, then 2017 will be defined by the happiness you will feel when you experience the delight of 13 Lalor Street Ainslie – and the old school door bell works! bliss!
