With so many enticing period features, beautifully preserved – timber sash windows, high ceilings, ornate cornices, picture rails, stunning vintage light fittings, timber doors with brass handles – the home has a gentle, inviting presence that calls to the soul. The interior palette – crisp white walls, timber joinery, floating Sydney Blue gum flooring – is the perfect canvas for art, inspirational pieces, mid-century stylings.

Your imagination will leap when you encounter this 1950’s cottage, set on a corner, with a large garden tucked to the side and behind, elevated views across rooftops, established trees. You could capitalise on the 850m2 parcel of prime land, building up, taking in the stunning views, out to Telstra Tower and the Brindabellas, enjoying the coveted position, a stone’s throw from the Braddon precinct, the CBD and a just few steps from Mount Ainslie Reserve. Or delight in this original family home, light filled, value laden with character and warmth, a peaceful refuge with loads of other worldly charm.

Nestled within mature gardens, the home’s sunny yellow façade, with terracotta roof tiles, pop of blue trim and brick detailing, is barely visible from the street. A formal, row of box balls, frame an authentic wrought iron gate, delineating entry to the garden realm. A path entices, through a copse of paperbarks, to front terrace, enclosed by a creeping fig hedge. This is a wonderful nook, bathed in morning light, perfect for morning coffee, brunch, among the trees, watching the birds, taking in the action of the street.

The elegant living room with double, corner window, relishes in sweeping views across rooftops, stunning sunsets. The original fireplace with timber mantle and tiled hearth is a cosy focal point – think, romantic evenings, a shared glass, the flickering fire.

The generous kitchen overlooks the rear garden. Skylights bounce ample light into this engaging, subtle space, resulting in an inviting and enveloping glow. A modern, double oven is set into the original, tiled fireplace with mantle, and mid-century glass and timber panels, delimit entry into an intimate dining room.

Leafy views and classy, modernist cabinetry are the highlights, of the sweet dining area, that connects to rear home office or third bedroom.

Two bedrooms occupy the eastern side of the home (including the double sized master) both with built-in-robes, verdant aspect and convenient adjacency to family bathroom with roomy tub and separate toilet.

The rear garden, enticing and rambling, with rustic fireplace, screened pergola, is privatised by mature hedging and drenched in northern sunshine. Terraced levels take advantage of the rising elevation, creating a variety of spaces to explore – easy lawn, meandering paths, vegetable garden. A carport with side access from Leslie Street, occupies the highest end of the block. Alive with movement and colour, the garden taps into feelings of childhood – easier times, coming together in the sunshine, delighting in the colossal Manchurian pear, its changing displays of autumnal colours.

Ainslie is a sought after, tranquil village, known for its wide leafy streets, heritage homes and central, inner-north locale. The home is a mere stone’s throw from the Braddon and Dickson precincts and the CBD, connecting you to a plethora of unique dining and shopping experiences. Mt Ainslie Reserve is a few steps away and the home is an easy walking distance to the fabulous Ainslie shops, including local favourites – Edgar’s gastropub, Breizh Café, Shop girl Flower girl and Ainslie Cellars. The home is also close to parks, a variety of schools, the ANU, shared bike and walking paths and public transport.
