Classic Oakley and Parkes Residence in Forrest

A fabulous opportunity exists for those wanting to enter premium inner south territory and wish to make their mark on a stylish home in Forrest to keep within the family for generations to come. The present owners currently hold approved plans by one of Canberra's leading architects for a significant extension and renovation, which marries the best of new and old.  

Superb positioning within one of Canberra's most desirable Heritage enclaves this charming 1920's Oakley and Parkes residence sits behind gates in a beautiful tree-line street, surrounded by established gardens and mature trees.

Classic sash windows, and character features are evidenced throughout with high ceilings, wide skirtings, picture rails, and hardwood timber floors. Well-proportioned living areas include a formal lounge, and dining room each with an original wood fireplace. Adjacent to the dining is a sunroom orientated perfectly to enjoy a verdant outlook and take full advantage of the delightful Northerly aspect and the expansive grounds. This versatile room would work equally well as a home office or for a range of different purposes.

The kitchen and bathrooms have been refreshed from their original state with the kitchen freshly painted and equipped with Miele appliances. The family/meals area has full length glass and observes a delightful leafy garden setting and outlook to a paved courtyard. Ample storage is also provided throughout, and car accommodation offers a single lock up garage and carport.

Prime central positioning means a genuine short walking distance to the Manuka Shopping Precinct as well as numerous well regarded schools including Canberra Girls Grammar, Canberra Grammar School, Forrest Primary and Telopea Park School.
