Yarralumla Island of Tranquility and Delight

Visually spectacular and a delight to the senses, this unique and remarkable property has come to the market and presents a wonderful opportunity to buy an iconic home in an exceptional Inner South location. Expansive nearby parkland offers an amazing outlook over Lake Burley Griffin to Black Mountain Tower and walking and cycling paths abound. It is just a 5-minute stroll to a lakeside beach! Schlich Street, Yarralumla epitomises what 'The Bush Capital' promises.  

The romantic, fairy-tale gardens in which the residence nestles are the results of the current owners' meticulous and considered work over 30 years and are a credit to them. They have been professionally described as one of the best examples of a cottage garden in the ACT and are now relatively low-maintenance. The gardens are home to an abundance of tree plant varieties – some of which are rare - as well as multiple bird species and some friendly lizards.

The comfortable and appealing 1957 residence comprises 3 bedrooms and a delightful sunroom which could be a fourth bedroom. There is a large studio and multiple outdoor entertaining areas. The kitchen and the bathrooms have been updated over time and the home has been beautifully maintained throughout its interesting life. The kitchen boasts a recently installed induction cooktop and a relatively new dishwasher. The family bathroom features a spa bath. Floor coverings are slate tiles in the kitchen, high quality deep pile carpet laid on thick underlay in the bedrooms and living areas, ceramic tiles in the wet areas and polished hardwood in the studio. Hot water is via a gas continuous flow service.
The internal climate is controlled by ducted gas heating, effective insulation, ceiling fans and the significant benefit of the surrounding gardens.
