We have been honoured to have the Grand-daughter of the original 1926 owners visit and can now confirm more details of the home when you visit.
Constructed in 1926 for the electrical engineer engaged on the construction of the Australian War Memorial, the design was based on a local, gentrified Forrest residence. Behind the front door you will find a quiet, private and leafy suburban oasis. This exceptionally well-designed and solidly built 3 bedroom, two bathroom character home could be precisely what you are looking for, with multiple living areas! The home retains many original features and elements of its history, while renovations ensure it offers a distinctive residence, situated within a magical, cedar-lined street with wide nature strips and opposite Reid Oval.
Space, style and light-filled design combine easily here, boasting a beautifully balanced combination of radiant indoor and outdoor spaces. Every element needed for absolute family comfort and convenience is assured by this solid, quality home. The landscape designed outdoor rooms and gardens within the privacy of the surrounding hedge allows you to meander through pathways finding a different location each day for quiet contemplation. The amazing leafy address is near to the walking, running or biking tracks of Mt Ainslie.
The bright open layout features spacious living and dining areas bathing the home in light and providing a great integration with the outdoors. Alfresco living at the rear of the home provides an excellent space to relax or entertain, with the meditative sounds of the fish pond and local birdlife.
The kitchen has been well maintained with updates throughout, all whilst preserving its timeless charm. The 1200mm Falcon freestanding cooktop with double ovens is located in the original 1920s kitchen hob. There is ample cupboard space and servery, perfect for the growing family and entertainers. Complemented by the connecting open living and dining areas, it is ideal for everyday use as well as formal entertaining.
There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and sunroom plus the most sought-after option of a large studio, which was previously the 1920s/1930s double garage. This spacious studio, brimming with potential, has one wall of windows ensuring all-year round light, and it has been confirmed by Philip Leeson (ACT Government Heritage Advisory Service) that a bathroom could be built in this studio (subject to ACTPLA approval). Perfect as a home business option, a mum-cave, a rumpus room, sleep-out room for teenagers or a hobby/craft room. The original 1926 single garage is an additional bonus, especially taking into consideration the generous storeroom at the rear, offering superb wine storage potential. Storage is never an issue, and off-street car parking is available for up to three cars.
This easy maintenance home offers the ideal haven in a sought-after Inner North location that is close to schools, shops and bus transport with the heart of the CBD just 3 minutes away. Ideal for families or an executive couple wanting lots of space, the utmost privacy and a great layout for entertaining, this is a home with true ‘wow’ factor, and potential for making your own mark.
Reid is tightly held with few properties changing hands in this highly sought-after historic precinct. It has inherited the best of Australia’s garden city spatial planning – homes on large lots, generous building setbacks, wide tree-lined streets, a high proportion of public parks and proximity to a network of urban amenities. Only a short stroll to the city centre, Lonsdale Street, cinemas and a variety of cafes and restaurants. Its nearness to Mt Ainslie and the Australian War Memorial, the popular Ainslie Shops, Lake Burley Griffin, ANU and other educational institutions ensures this will always be an extremely desirable location.
