Located in the Wakefield Gardens Precinct close to the Ainslie shops, the location and block surpasses the humility of the home. The front facade with timber sash windows captures the imagination whilst the texture of the Stucco and prominent red brick chimney are charming heritage details. The simplicity of the front facade does not deter from the precious yet surprisingly large footprint and original features that are within; double brick construction, timber detailing, large bedrooms with 11ft ceilings and original functional wood fuel stove.

Adelaide has lived here for 71 years, first moving in May 1948, her Ainslie home holds a lifetime of stories. An early resident of the Wakefield Gardens, her twice extended duplex and level north facing kitchen gardens speak to a time when community ties and self sufficiency was part of the early Canberra garden plan. Although the landscape has changed dramatically since then, the community spirit hasn’t. Back to bare bones and ready for the next chapter, the wakefield.home is a special opportunity to start your own Ainslie story.
