With the colour and life of Spring around us, the connection we feel to our gardens is front of mind and close to heart. Where our homes are our cherished spaces of comfort and tranquillity, our gardens are the art that adorns them.
Like the relationship between art and architecture, two disciplines intertwined through design, purpose and beauty, the connection between a home and garden is an emotive one. One which can transform a space not only aesthetically, but in its essence and the way in which it makes us feel. Our gardens remind us to appreciate the little things, a flower under the windowsill or a perfect ray of afternoon sunshine, and of the joy that can be found through nature and its cultivation. The home is the canvas on which we create our lives, and the garden is the art that inspires us to love it.
A classic red brick home, tucked away behind a secret garden of lush trees and flowering established plantings, 5 Ebden Street is a sanctuary. The integration of home and garden has been carefully nurtured over 73 years to create a peaceful family residence, a dream of suburban living on a large garden allotment. The garden has been lovingly created and features an extraordinary collection of azaleas, camellias, hellebores, irises, daffodils, tulips, and aquilegias. The large weeping cherry out the front is spectacular in bloom and other trees include maples both large and small, crab-apples and dogwoods and numerous groundcovers keep the weeds at bay. Every room within the character home affords a garden aspect viewed through sliding windows, against the timeless backdrop of Mount Ainslie. A tranquil and restorative home, inside and out, the original footprint extended over its lifespan to offer four bedrooms, generous family areas, sunroom and decking.
Brilliantly positioned for a vibrant, community-oriented lifestyle, Ainslie is a coveted suburb, and an easy place to live. The serene bushwalking tracks of Mount Ainslie, the Ainslie Primary School, and the Inner North go-to Ainslie Shops and the buzzing Braddon precinct are just a short stroll away. An easy bike ride or public transport trip will take you to Civic, the Dickson Pool, and an excellent array of local schools. With such a convenient location comes a lifestyle that prioritises the most precious gift of all – time. Time to spend with loved ones, in the garden sanctuary, on the foothills of Mount Ainslie, or from the comforts of home.
