Throughout the interior there is the continuous thread of simplicity and character details - fresh white tones, timber framed windows, warm floorboards, glass panelled doors, high ceilings - creating a modern space with a soft, open-hearted, vintage charm. The balanced floor-plan divides the house into entertaining and sleeping zones, the easy flow, contributing to the paired-back interiors, the airy, spacious feel.

Resting on a quiet, tree-lined street, in the coveted suburb of Watson, famous for its fast evolving, urban growth, inner-north locale, quiet streets and community vibes, this three-bedroom family home, opens to rear terrace, gentle lawns. Large windows welcome the outside in, and a lovely simplicity of design and palette extends serenity, promoting easy, considered living.

With its combo of light and dark grey, picture windows, clean low, roof line, the façade, extends an under-stated yet assured architectural presence. Centrally positioned, enclosed within mature and expansive grounds, molesworth.home is wonderfully private. A welcoming and spacious entry porch completes the entry sequence, ushering, inviting, into open, light filled, living, dining, kitchen.

The living, dining, kitchen is a lovely family arena - double windows frame landscape, welcoming a continuity of northern light.

The bright, white kitchen has been modernised with stainless steel appliances and striking black counter tops, while still retaining the charm of the original curved cabinetry.

Three bedrooms, all with built-in-robes, centre around a family bathroom, separate toilet and internal laundry. The crisp white bathroom, simply updated, retains the wonderful strawberry blush of the original bathtub and mosaic floors.

The back yard, flanked by free-standing garage and shed/studio, both with low roof lines, continuous with the home - brim with potential for conversion to studio/apartment spaces. Flat easy-lawns allow for imaginative landscaping projects or just for letting the kids play - think spontaneous games of cricket, soccer, trampoline, cubby house. There is enough room here for gathering with the whole family, friends, dining alfresco beneath the trees, watching the day fade.

Watson is a vibrant, inner-north suburb with great community vibes, fabulous local shops, plenty of playgrounds and parks and surrounded by natural reserves. The home is close to Exhibition Park, The Farmer's Market, Majura Nature Reserve, Dickson precinct, and just a stone's throw from Braddon and the CBD and ANU. It is also close to transport and a mix of public and private schools.
