There are so many aspects to a home when we are considering liveability. Lifestyle, functionality, location, the story, the future it holds for us and what we can imagine for our life in the one place.
If you have travelled, you may be like me, finding yourself falling in love with the places you visit and imagining what it would be like to live there. You notice yourself perusing the local real estate, flicking through the magazines, dreaming of the what if I lived here home.
coranderrk.house inspires the same what if this was my home dreaminess. When you visit the city, the cultural events of our capital, surrounds of the lake, or the emerging precincts around Canberra, if you are like me you envy the homes that reside in the leafy pockets shouldering the city.
With great respect for the heritage architecture, together Roslyn and Tony have modernised the interiors, although heritage characteristics remain. For them it has been a story of love, important to retain the Art Deco heritage whilst harmoniously integrating contemporary functionality. A thoughtful refurbishment has created a family home.
This is a home that inspires connection, with only two families in residence since it was built in the early 1930s. Their re-invention and re-design of the kitchen, bathrooms and family areas have captured a sense of light and flow and softened the interiors with warm hues. The Sydney Blue Gum timber floors and a muted palette of natural stone and organic textures fuse the classic and the contemporary.
coranderrk.house is a welcoming home which conveys youthful and contemporary living. The liveability is layered and offers versatile living spaces with multiple rooms to meet the diversity of family needs.
Sheltered from the street by lush foliage, boasting secret nooks and mature trees, the gardens and expanse of lawns create spaces for childhood play, quiet retreat and alfresco entertaining.
If it was me, I would choose Reid every time. Coming home after the holiday adventures of January, the location and lifestyle are to be found nowhere else in Canberra.
