The legge.home is everything that is quintessentially Inner North. Effortlessly cool, eclectic, filled with personality, and perfect exactly as it is, while ready to grow and adapt if you ever thought it needed to.
The humble facade speaks to its vintage, a simpler time, yet enduring in style. Exactly the character that we love, deep orange bricks, windows that let the sun pour in, layers of paint on the back steps speaking to decades of the well worn path from laundry to hills hoist and backyard fun.
Right now Downer is the place to be, the suburb of choice. It’s edgy and it’s got attitude. The light rail has elevated its position and connectivity to the city, the local shops a vibrant hub generating a new energy and community spirt. The extensive urban renewal in Dickson enhancing a precinct that is already a melting pot of culture and history.
The truly majestic and beautiful Snow Gums that line the street are unique to a suburb that played a significant part for the CSIRO in the ’60s, The suburb home to the site of the Dickson Experiment Station, employing years of significant crop and pasture trials.
A home of shared experiences, the legge.home holds memories that are familiar to us all, especially growing up in the Inner North suburbs of Canberra. The orange tone brick construction, 1960’s character details, the large sunny back yard – similarities of time, differences of landscape, yet experiences that have played a part for all of us growing up.
Walking to school, neighbourhood play at the park and swimming at the Dickson Pool each summer provided a multitude of happy times growing up in Downer.
Community and lifestyle are the fundamental and privileged benefits of living in Downer. The energy is infectious, you feel it when you pop to the local shops, have a coffee at The Gang Gang, or when you join the parade of locals as they walk their dogs or shop at the Farmers Markets.
With a touch of sentimentality, for those of us who find delight in all the character of Canberra homes and the tree lined streets of one of our older suburbs, there is no limit to our affection for the interesting and diverse homes that are part of our rich and youthful story, right here, right now in Downer.
