The wattle.home is an old soul with character and endearing features. The extra height of the ceilings creates a sense of space, whilst terracotta roof tiles, deep orange textured bricks and original large windows speak to its vintage, a 1960’s beauty.
Strong bones and robust in its construction, the home gives an impressive first impression with compelling street appeal. The garden wraps around and envelopes the home, a verdant sanctuary of beautiful established plantings. Directly adjacent to the O’Connor Ridge Reserve, the position is nothing less than enthralling, making you feel as if you have no neighbours at all.
Fully renovated, with modern amenity, four large bedrooms with bathroom and en suite, the home fulfils the fundamentals we all seek; flowing living areas to give a sense of space yet the ability to designate areas for purpose. Warm timber flooring and ducted heating keep the home comfortable and warm during Canberra’s cooler months.
A large family meals area creates a connected space to the kitchen and outdoors. The light shifts and changes as the north east aspect captures morning to afternoon sunlight, a lovely space for the day to day activities. Sliding glass doors open to a wonderful wrap around decking, connecting level lawn and paved terrace with meandering garden from front to back.
The windows could be considered the hero of the home with expansive solar access captured in every room. The interchangeable view across the elevated inner north position offers a spectacular vista for all seasons. The play on colour inside and out is enhanced as the sun crosses the sky. The patchwork of organic tones are uplifting and revitalising,
The wattle.home finds itself right amongst it. Canberra has grown and matured as a city, whilst vibrant precincts have evolved the established home and garden allotment has remained, shouldering the community focused local centres, the city and beyond. A short walk to parks, Lyneham schools and of course what will become your local, the Tilley’s Devine Cafe Gallery.
