Its a small world in Watson. The connections are made by where the children go to school together, sport or the local football club, and most likely crossing paths each Saturday at the farmers markets, walking the dog, popping to the local shops to grab Friday nights takeaway or a famous coffee from The Knox.
Watson is a favourite place right now, not just for long time residents, but for those seeking a suburb with neighbourhood appeal and local spirit. The community networks, neighbourhood school, local shopping centre and ease of access to the city are enviable benefits for the residents.
For Laura and Shaun Watson has been home for over 10 years. They began their love affair with the suburb as renters, and continuing as first home buyers in Dickinson Street, a three bedroom home modernised and enhanced over the years to take full advantage of the spectacular lifestyle position facing the oval. Expansive windows capture leafy green outlooks with an uninterrupted view to the manicured Watson oval – priceless! The open plan living area with clever integration to the gorgeous outdoor spaces, provides a seamless connectedness to covered decking and established gardens. Dickinson St has provided years of family living and entertaining with friends, however now with a growing family, dog, chooks and interstate family, they are leaving their much loved home to continue the Watson love affair a few streets away.
I love that Canberra is still such a small place, that we all seem to know someone who knows someone and it never ceases to amaze me the connectedness of our town.
The Watson locals dont leave. They know it is a good thing and they are staying close to home. It will be easy to slip right into the local life, without a doubt you will know someone who knows someone.
