Opening in both directions, from east to west, onto tranquil outdoor spaces, the henty.home elevates with its airy, sense of spaciousness and easy indoor/outdoor connection. The home has a lovely simplicity and uncomplicated, curated sense of peace – wide plank timber style flooring, earthy terracotta tiling, soft sage colored walls – with multiple arenas, welcoming both connection and repose.
This immaculate, one bedroom apartment, is set back from the street, sequestered by generous courtyards and facing greenspace. With incredible privacy, wonderful light and pleasing interplay of flowing spaces, the henty.home extends a serene, neutral palette and simple nordic style. Centrally located, just minutes from the eateries and entertainment options of the Braddon precinct and the CBD, the home easily, serves up both inner calm and exciting, modern, urban lifestyle.
The Davenport is a low-rise, boutique development, with only two levels. The building’s facade is characterised by a charming combo of materials – raw brick, black iron balustrades and a sweet, pop of sky blue. Enjoying the convenience of direct street access, this ground floor apartment has an attractive entrance pathway, softened by overflowing, greenery.
The open plan living, dining, kitchen, has plenty of breathing space, is perfect for laid-back living and offers instant repose from the rushing activity of city life. The kitchen is bright white, with warm timber accents, glass splash back, Smeg appliances, stone bench tops, generous island bench and opens to western facing, front courtyard, privately enclosed by climbing vines. There is lots of room here – long weekend lunches in the sun, or evening dinner parties with family and friends as the sun sets.
The master bedroom with ensuite, walkthrough robe, separate toilet and laundry, is a gorgeous, private haven, opening fully to generous, east facing garden. This peaceful sanctuary, with its consistent harmonious palette and simple, natural vibe, welcomes, invites the outdoors in. Imagine waking – the sounds of bird life, dappled morning light, enjoying coffee in bed or outside, beneath the established trees.
The home is just a few steps from Haig Park and an easy walk to Lonsdale Street, famous for its eclectic range of restaurants, cafes, unique boutiques, fantastic coffee, and thriving bars. This dynamic central locale also places you within walking distance to the CBD, ANU, Melbourne Centre, New Acton precinct and O’Connor shops. This whole inner-north area is synonymous for an amazing array of eating, drinking, relaxing, pampering, exercising and entertaining experiences. Throw in, ample green spaces, walking and biking trails, established trees and gardens, and you have an enviable city/village mix. The home is also close to transport including the light rail and metro city station, connecting you to the whole of Canberra.
