Can I afford this property?


A much loved extended cottage. This is truly a gem on 907m2. Set in a wonderfully quiet, tree lined street, with Lake Burley Griffin at one end and the Deakin and Yarralumla shops mere moments away, the base of Red Hill Reserve and its myriad nature walks and a selection of premium schools all within walking distance, it is hardly surprising that this brilliant piece of real estate has been held so tightly for over six decades.

Around the front path flowering camelia, and up to an elevated front porch, the sense of privacy is afforded thanks to established trees and flowering shrubs. Inside, the traditional floorplan is highlighted with original features, timber sash windows, picture rails and fireplace with render and tiles. The warm cottage feel continues throughout, three bedrooms and cedar lined bathroom to the front, traditional 'L' shaped lounge and dining room, kitchen and open family room that opens onto a sunny northern deck, and the extended master bedroom with neat en-suite. Every room enjoys a private garden view.

A sun trap, the back captures incredible Northern light as the long boundary is open and clear. Perfectly placed, a wrap around deck coming off the family room and kitchen integrates into the garden. Richly planted, there are meandering flower beds with early spring bulbs starting to appear, roses, thriving pear tree, liquidambers, and a single garage with rear workshop/ bike storage room.

A brilliant parcel of land, some 907m2, with near perfect northern side orientation. Your options are vast. The opportunity is now.

* Close proximity to Royal Canberra Golf Course, the Red Hill Reserve land, kids parks and bike tracks, moments to your morning coffee and vanilla slice at Café D'Lish, Deakin Shops and Canberra Girls Grammar, Yarralumla Primary
* Ducted gas heating, RC air conditioning, multiple ceiling fans, instant hot water system
* Four lovely roomy bedrooms, two bathrooms, excellent master segregation to the rear of the property
* Good storage throughout, linen cupboards, great robes to two bedrooms
* Very well maintained kitchen, excellent natural light, skylight, plenty of storage, open to the family room
* Main bathroom, shower over bath, Australian Myrtle clad walls, heated towel rail, raked ceilings with skylight
