I love ‘old’ Kingston! The interesting mix of architecture, the heritage homes tucked in between the medium density, the light that filters through the spectacular tree-lined streets and the beauty of the distinctive buildings on Green Square Kingston.
Renewed interest in mid-century design has inspired older style apartments to be sought after for their generous functional floor plan, efficient use of space and their light-filled interiors.
For lovers of this design and life in an early Canberra precinct, the howitt.home is one to experience. This wonderful two bedroom second floor apartment delivers open plan living spaces and exceptional solar access with north facing orientation.
A neutral palette relying on rich natural tones and scandi aesthic creates unity whilst the painted white walls, ensure the house is bright and airy. Curved brickwork and floor to ceiling linen curtains. Tree-top views from north facing windows draw nature inside the home.
Thoughtful and clever renovations have enhanced the efficiency of the footprint with double glazing and quality window coverings. Integrated joinery and Murphy Bed provides ample storage and flexible accommodation options.
There’s a lot to love about living here in old Kingston – taking a short stroll to the Green Square for your morning coffee, walking through historic Telopea Park and lake, catching up with friends after work at one of the many local restaurants and indulging in some boutique shopping on a lazy weekend. The vibrancy of the Kingston Precinct comes to life with the new Supabarn and Eyre Street Market.
