Thoughtful renovations and attention to detail, have resulted in a robust and luxurious modern family home, full of joy and beauty. The 1920’s form, red brick, hipped roof, front porch, is quintessential Canberra, integral to the famous Walter Burley and Marion Mahoney Griffin original dream of ordered rows of workers cottages, a democratic city, connected to and reflecting the natural bush landscape. Part of the Braddon Garden City heritage precinct, Doonkuna Street, with central reserve and use of slender loop road further privatising the rows of cottages, is significant for being the only area truly aligned with the Griffin design.

Privately positioned behind reserve and fenced by double rows of hedging, Doonkuna.home, feels concealed and connected, both open to street and landscape, whisper close to city life yet inwardly serene. Flowing interior spaces open to garden and the past and present magically coalesce.
