Enjoy an upmarket lifestyle and slice of Canberra's history
Step into this quintessential red brick Canberra duplex and you'll instantly discover why it's a style of home that is much coveted and seldom remains long on the market. The home's simple and honest design and double-brick craftsmanship stems from its 1950s roots and lends itself well to architectural adaptation. Some of that work has already been done, with refinished timber floors, an updated bathroom, kitchen and laundry and downlights throughout. On the ground floor, an indoor atrium separates the kitchen from the huge family room where double French doors open the rear of the house to the north-facing paved outdoor entertaining area. A sitting room at the front of the home has its own set of French doors leading to a patio privately tucked away behind a pittosterum hedge. A gas pot belly stove adjacent to the dining room on the ground floor keeps everything cosy while reverse-cycle air conditioning units maintain a comfortable temperate in each of the three upstairs bedrooms. Set within Yarralumla's embassy enclave, and steps away from a private reserve, quality schools, walking trails to Lake Burley Griffin and the Deakin shops, this home also has easy commuter access to the Parliamentary triangle, Canberra CBD and Woden Town Centre.
