The cunningham.home is an unexpected surprise, combining modern amenity and contemporary living with Canberran architectural history.
Now sitting proudly at the front of the esteemed “Broadway” complex, the cunningham.home is one of two townhouses designed by Australian Government architect Cuthbert Whitley in the late 1930s. Whitley’s designs were among the first government-designed and built functionalist style houses in Australia and are listed on the ACT Chapter of the Royal Australian Institute of Architects Register of Significant Twentieth Century Architecture. The Whitley houses are defined by their single-level, flat-roof design, asymmetrical cubic shapes, and clean lines emphasizing horizontality and function.
Beautifully preserved, the historical dwelling has been thoughtfully updated throughout to retain its original character and craftsmanship while enhancing its liveability with modern comforts. Behind the simplistic white facade, the cunningham.home provides a harmonious single-level floor plan with luxurious formal and informal spaces.
The generous entry foyer opens into a formal lounge room with gas fireplace and bespoke joinery. The dining room and casual sitting room or meals area adjoins a beautiful modern kitchen, well-planned and fully equipped with quality Smeg appliances. Three generous bedrooms with plantation shutters and built-in robes provide comfortable spaces to relax and retreat, while the lovely green outlook from every window will calm the senses. Beautifully maintained gardens surround the home, with Pencil Pines and English Box Hedges framing a picture-perfect front lawn.
The home is ideally located, in a premium position on the corner of Canberra Avenue and Cunningham Street. A short walk from the Griffith, Manuka and Kingston Shops, Lake Burley Griffin, the Parliamentary Triangle, and a highly regarded selection of local schools, your every lifestyle need is met here.
