This home is all heart. There’s no need for pro and con lists, second guessing or reservations, you will be swept away in the emotion and love from the first glance.
This is Ainslie personified.
The heritage weatherboard cottage, is pretty as a picture, the front porch welcomes you framed by low line gardens with the view to the Corroboree Park Precinct and open spaces unobstructed. A view of the city is captured between the historic pencil pines and eucalyptus.
The crepe myrtles run the length of the driveway, hydrangeas along the side of the house, and a sunny level garden with Mount Ainslie as the backdrop. This is a home where life stays the same as it has for the century before it; kids playing on the lawn, crops growing to help build the salad at dinner, happy chooks gobbling up scraps and rewarding you with fresh happy eggs for your Sunday morning breakfast.
The interiors will leave you speechless. Heritage character is nurtured throughout the home, with original doors, picture ledges, timber flooring, sash windows and high ceilings. It’s a home that could stay exactly as it is for the decades to come, and it would continue to serve as a beautiful and endearing home in the heart of Ainslie.
All heart, I’m all in Ainslie!
