People say the hardest thing to find in a home is the right ambience, the feeling that intoxicates us as we enter, which speaks to us on a level far beyond a predetermined criteria list. The coranderrk.home has a presence, an authenticity only found in things to be undisputedly original and genuine.
With warmth, historical significance and enduring character, the coranderrk.home envelopes you in its ubiquity. A number of defined intimate living spaces, allow you to make space to slow down, immerse yourself in a book, start the big personal project you have waited for, fire-gaze, sit, or simply be.
Tactile and rich in materials, the organic interplay of the sublime neutral interiors speak to the subtle variations of timber detailing and heritage detailing. Crisp contrasts are captured, and garden views are framed by the timber sash windows, French doors to alfresco decking and front terrace connecting the whimsical gardens with the home.
Situated on an enormous block and hidden from the world around it, within the coranderrk.home it’s easy to feel as if you are in a small country town, while actually being in the heart of Canberra’s city. It’s fortunate, privileged position in our bush capital connects the home directly with adjoining ovals, bush reserves, and our national cultural institutions.
For nearly a century, Canberrans have gravitated to the tree lined streets and heritage homes of Reid. The shared mutual experiences of the locals have woven the fabric of the community history. This is the epicentre of where our Canberra community flourished and put down foundations.
Raw, natural, intoxicating.
