Home, garden, and lifestyle in unison in a home involves the harmonious functioning of all parts together.

The donaldson.home feels authentically home. Your first impressions will be the visually satisfying balance between the organic textured interiors, free-flowing established gardens and the character of the heritage facade. Each perfectly compliments the other.

Homely heartfelt elements, honest materials and rustic organic style resonates and speaks to the sincerity of this lovingly maintained home.

The layers of its life are revealed as you walk through, it's easy to appreciate the story of the donaldson.home as the central living rooms reveal and connect with the more recent renovations. A striking hearth fireplace with heavy timber mantle anchors the heart of the home, with a mature weeping elm focal to the established gardens in the idyllic inner-city location.

Generous accommodation provides for three designated bedrooms in the accommodation wing offering en suite and a new modern bathroom, whilst multiple living and family rooms connect seamlessly with the rear gardens. The family kitchen is framed by large windows, affording a gorgeous outlook to the gardens in the room where so much time is spent. Large front windows enjoy the winter sun and provide a delightful view to the street and green spaces beyond.

While parts of Braddon have become a skyline of towering cranes, inner-city apartments, and reinvented precincts, this home is nestled in Braddon's heritage neighourhood of old-world charm. Looking out across an oval and trees which are protected from developers, the streetscape means you can sit on your front porch and feel connected, or stroll the tree-lined streets to the cafes, shops, and restaurants of the city.

As the city continues its exciting growth, the beauty and enduring character of the home's environs are assured: heritage protection means this part of Braddon will continue to be a garden neighbourhood, a reminder of the original garden city vision for Canberra.
