If you look closely, to the right side of our lead image, you’ll find a vibrant pink Rhododendron; illustrative of the vintage of the namitjira.home, and the youthful history of our suburbs.
This is what draws us to the established suburbs, character homes soaked in nostalgia with gardens that have grown and flourished through the diverse seasons of our region. Homes that take us back to our childhoods, with summer afternoons biting into juicy red plums plucked fresh from the tree. A simpler time.
The namitjira.home is full of the timeless mid-century features that we can’t help but love like open plan split level living and modernist brass details. While also carefully interwoven with the fundamentals of modern day living with upgrades like solar, ducted heating and cooling and new bedroom carpets.
A timeless design, the segregated master bedroom with walk through robe and en-suite sits atop the floorplan alongside the dining area and kitchen. Large scale glazing soaks the home in natural light as the sun moves throughout the day. The three additional bedrooms and family bathroom continue on the lower floor with the family lounge room spilling out to the back deck featuring views to the Brindabella’s.
Set back off the street, the namitjira.home is surrounded by established gardens which attract native birds and wildlife year round, ripe with delicately scented flowers. Numerous rhododendrons, prolific camellias, and an underplanted story of sweet scented violets, daphne and azaleas greet you on approaching the house. It’s a sweet welcome home.
A gloriously established shady maple, deciduous magnolia, crabapple and cherry tree feature in the dappled front yard, beckoning quiet afternoons in the kitchen handcrafting old school preserves. Peppered with spring flowering bulbs and established species, the outside begs to come in, offering fresh flowers for the house.
Carrying the theme through, the back yard is rich with camellias and old roses, the scent of violets and an ethereal weeping birch. Delicious feijoas, and aromatic established herbs quietly call the cook. A garden like this is one that is earned over time, slowly and surely over the years it has evolved to beautifully surround the home.
This is a home you build a life in; playing together for hours out the back, walking to school or the Chapman shops without ever crossing a main road, pouring a cuppa to sip in the garden, just taking time to relax, and truly settle in.
