This is a home with a lifetime of stories. A story of a journey to a new country, a love lost and reunited, a Polish family searching for a new beginnings, a daughter who left her homeland to care for a father and a life lived in Ainslie.
Located at the top of Tyson Street close to the Duffy Street junction, the location and block surpasses the humility of the home. The front facade with the decorative metal railing and porch captures the imagination whilst framed by the deep ‘Canberra’ red bricks and terracotta tiles. The simplicity of the front facade does not deter from the precious original features that are within; double brick construction, timber detailing, terracotta roof tiles and divine functional wood fuel stove.
An Ainslie home with a lifetime of stories, built by Peter Paszniewska in 1954 who resided here and was joined by his wife 21 years later. On her passing their daughter Genowefa, a Polish nun, came to Ainslie to care for her father.
Just like the journey from Poland offered a new life with new opportunity, Tyson Street for 65 years has celebrated the love of old country and new – time for a new beginning.
