As we approach the end of the year – a year full of surprises – we just need something with beauty, with elegance, and with the promise of effortless living. We need to reconnect with our homes, our sanctuaries, as well as our local community and those close to us. This spectacular family residence is simply begging for celebrations, family get-togethers, and long lunches with friends. You could say we’ve left the best for last.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a favourite living space: from the versatile, oversized living and dining areas, to the expansive outdoors with its immaculate gardens, shaded seating areas and children’s playland.
All this in one of Ainslie’s premium addresses, overlooking the tranquil park of the Cox Street enclave and moments from the prized suburb’s shopping hub.
The home’s flexibility and connected flow are its strengths. Its four generous bedrooms, two with study areas, allow space to accommodate a growing family, and its intuitive floorplan maximises space and light, and encourages seamless all-year indoor and outdoor living. Best of all, it requires absolutely nothing except to be moved straight into and enjoyed.
Did we mention natural sunlight fills the house abundantly and the set-back position ensures peace and privacy? Take a deep breath, we all deserve it.
Now, we can move onto the other desirable features. The residence blends modern updates with meticulously maintained period features. The sheer size of the block and home is a rare find, and the proximity to Braddon, CBD, Mount Ainslie, War Memorial and Canberra’s best attractions can’t be bettered.
