For nearly a century, Canberrans have gravitated to the tree lined streets and heritage homes of Reid. The shared mutual experiences of the locals have woven the fabric of the community history. Family picnics in Geerilong Gardens were held for movie nights and to watch the televised changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, with locals hiring fairy floss machines and entertainment for the neighbourhood children. This is the epicentre of where our Canberra community flourished and put down foundations.

The first resident of number 25 Geerilong Gardens was a fixture of the community for 74 years, and held the honour of the oldest living inhabitant in Reid. Eventually number 25 found its way to the current owners, who have lovingly transformed the home into something truly captivating.

Defined by its quintessential curved portico and chimney, 25 Geerilong Gardens entices you over the threshold to a home that is entirely unassuming and unexpected from the outside. The character of the 1927 heritage house is retained and interwoven into the fabric of the new and the old. Meticulously refurbished the home presents with a modern flexible floor plan retaining character details of sash windows, terracotta tiles and high ornate ceilings and cornices.

Extensive renovations throughout provide for a premium contemporary home with generous family accommodation. Every turn you take delivers you more in the way of grandeur, with a minimum of 2.7m high ceilings throughout, skylights flooding natural light into the study and bathrooms, and all the storage you have ever dreamt of. Every room in this home has been carefully considered to optimise not only the original features, but also the practicality of living in a forever family home.

Your curiosity will be entirely satisfied when you venture into the pristine curated gardens designed by landscape architects Harris Hobbs, with impressive outdoor spaces to entertain, relax and retire. Completely secure and private, the garden space allows for you to find sanctuary in the heart of Canberra.
