CLASSIC DOUBLE BRICK HOME WITH CHARM, CHARACTER AND RZ2 ZONING
Lovingly held in the same family for 71 years, #64 Stuart Street is a step back in time, for all of the right reasons.
A solid classic Canberra home, built to last with double brick walls, lovely timeless timber sash windows and a sense of proportion with towering ceilings and a simple effective floorplan.
Inside and out, it is authentic and well kept. Situated on the high side of the street, looking out through the oak trees to the North East, the land holding is a dream. Some 1031m2, in the RZ2 zone, less than 100m to the boutique Griffith shops, with quality educational institutions including St Edmunds, St Clares and Narrabundah College in walking distance, and a gentle flat stroll into the thriving café scene of Manuka.
The main home comprises of a generous front lounge with matchstick brick original fireplace, formal dining, large family kitchen and adjoining meals area, three large bedrooms and a fresh family bathroom.
Significantly extended in the early 1970's, the original three bedroom residence, offers a separate studio to the rear. Easily integrated to the main home, this space offers an additional living space, bedroom and ensuite bathroom. With the closure of one door however the space could serve as a completely self-contained zone.
The home features charming Art Deco vibes throughout, with the original frosted glass pendant light fittings, Bakelite switches and mottled glass hardwood front door. In time the home is ripe for renovation, or consider the value of the RZ2 zoning and look towards a dual occupancy development as many of the neighbouring properties have previously.
This is an opportunity to purchase a piece of Canberra's history in a prized locale, whilst enjoying the convenience of a short stroll to Manuka Village, Kingston and Griffith.
