Car Spaces:

In the enviable enclave of Narrabundah and on the border of Griffith, this beautifully presented and extended character built home awaits your viewing. Fully renovated throughout with quality modern finishes that leave nothing to do but enjoy the peace and tranquillity, whilst nestled close to Manuka, Griffith and Kingston Fine Dining, Fyshwick Markets and meters away from top schools.

A timeless classic constructed in the mid1940s that epitomises what “true” workmanship was in the Post-War era. Solid double brick finish with high battened ceilings, picture rails, timeless timber sash windows and sealed timber floors throughout, all features of a bygone era.

A private and secure portico entry entices you inside to a light filled hallway and through to a renovated galley style kitchen, offering stainless steel bench tops, glass splashbacks, bordered by stylish Italian imported feature tiles. Next door, the Art Deco living room awaits, boasting high ceilings and an original fireplace in working order. Glimpses in time of a nostalgic era, this modern and tastefully extended family residence perfectly fuses character and style to create a charming home which is bright and airy with clean lines.

The addition of the adjoining architecturally designed light filled family room invites both garden and morning rays into its oversized extremities; a rewarding space for all the family to relax and unwind under its high-pitched roof line and feature windows.

The three spacious bedrooms, the main with ensuite, have custom made floor to ceiling built-in robes providing a multitude of storage options. All bedrooms are light filled and enjoy beautiful leafy green outlooks with private garden views from every vantage point.

Clever integration of the outdoor entertaining areas with stunning alfresco decking and covered pergola interlock this private garden setting and flow seamlessly to a level manicured oasis of freshly laid Canberra climate friendly turf and mature trees.

This well-appointed modern home has been sympathetically and tastefully renovated to a high level, whilst maintaining the charm and character of its surrounds. It’s sure to suit today’s astute purchaser looking for functionality and finish, along with the peace and privacy this large parcel of land offers.

Within walking distance to Narrabundah and Griffith Shops along with Manuka and Kingston precincts and just a stone’s throw to St Edmund’s and St Clare’s College, this location is ideal for city fringe living in one of South Canberra's most sought-after suburbs. Directly amid the renaissance of the Inner South with developments poised for Manuka, Red Hill and Narrabundah, convenience will be the key!
