The front facade tells the story immediately. It is the home that catches your eye as you drive by, a classic beauty. Campbell is a suburb with 1960’s vintage, privately built homes, blue chip real estate. I love the impressive facade, the front terrace which runs the length of the home framed by the stone plinth and decorative metal railing. Yet, the character is not only found in the classic architecture of the home, but also in the tree lined street scape with large established blocks.
This is a place you want to live.Whether searching for a quiet sleepy street or looking to pick up the pace, a home positioned on the doorstep of the Mt Ainslie Reserve and within reach of Canberra’s vibrant city offers much potential for families.
This twice extended spacious home is in the heart of Canberra’s inner north. Robust in its construction, it is a house built to last. Large living rooms, two accommodation wings with two separate bathrooms, outdoor alfresco decking and light filled sun room offering multiple living and lifestyle options. Work from home, entertain in summer and winter, soak up the north sun in the sun room, enjoy an open fire and have space to live.
