Secluded 1920's Oakley & Parkes Residence

Positioned privately behind secure gates and hedging within one of Canberra's most exclusive Forrest enclaves is this simply beautiful, character filled Oakley and Parkes residence. Sitting gracefully within expansive lush grounds, established trees and picturesque gardens, the home is built on a 1400sqm parcel and showcases all the special features that the Oakley and Parkes design is known for.

The expanse of the property overall is exceptional, with well-proportioned rooms throughout the interiors, exuding gracious charm and character every step of the way. Premium selections and quality materials have been used throughout with meticulous attention to detail.

The residence centres around family and coziness. The formal dining area consists of high ceilings, and wood fireplace complimented by wooden joinery. The kitchen was renovated in a way where it seamlessly flows with the design of the home whilst overlooking the informal dining area with a flourishing background. The living room is adorned with a wood fireplace and sizeable French sash windows, drawing sun, and garden outlooks from every angle.

Bedroom accommodation is generous with four sizeable bedrooms, all of which enjoying the delightful garden aspects. The main bedroom is large and inclusive of an ensuite.

Arguably one of the best, most central blue-chip locations in Canberra, a remarkably private home within close proximity to the Parliamentary Triangle, top-tier blue ribbon schools, charming boutique shopping, and exceptional restaurants and cafes.

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.
