the forever home

#soldbyholly $2,270,000

The story of a forever home: juxtapose simple forms with ornate detailing, a blend of the nostalgic with the new. Leaving a lasting impression, this precious heritage home, surrounded by the original residences of the first garden precinct in Canberra, now finds its place in a rejuvenated and redeveloped enclave of the city.

Built at a time when Canberra’s population was still shy of 6000, the home has stood with beautiful simplicity for over 90 years. A timeless design with undiminishing pleasure, the home wistfully draws you in and inspires with thoughtful modern improvements and additions

The Braddon Housing Precinct 1921 –1927 has always been perfectly located. Doonkuna Street was fortunate to have a central garden, playground and tennis court, gorgeous brick cottages shaded by established plane trees, fulfilling Griffin’s 1916 vision for a ‘Garden City’.

Now it is surrounded by choice, close to everything that is central to our city – boutique local shopping centres, the Braddon Precinct, C5, New Acton, Founder’s Lane and the City, with all the energy of cosmopolitan living.

There may not be a more perfect position that one could look for in the Inner North. Not only a character home full of captivating charm, the heritage overlay ensures the neighbourhood stays exactly as it is.

A forever home outlasts fashions and fads. The home’s lovely layers of life and living, with warm textured interiors and a timeless aesthetic, mingled with new finds, sophisticated updates and whimsical gardens full of blooming roses, stately pencil pine and privacy hedge.

As Braddon continues its exciting growth, this precinct’s beauty and enduring character are assured: heritage protection means this will continue to be a garden neighbourhood, a reminder of the original garden city vision for Canberra.
