a heavy heart

Not surprisingly, there is a reluctance to part with an early Canberra home in Corroboree Park. The heavy heart stems from knowing and feeling part of the land, the heritage and the history. Also, the lifestyle is not one easily replaced or replicated anywhere else in Canberra.

The front facade of 10 Toms Crescent is charming and the small alterations made over time have been carefully calculated to retain the character of the home whilst modernising the accommodation and living areas. Positioned among an avenue of hundred-year-old pencil pines, the house is part of a unique, iconic Canberra vista in a working-class suburb that has always celebrated gardens, community and their emerging city.

Corroboree Park is a protected haven in the city, a garden precinct with an enviable lifestyle. With the close proximity to Braddon and Ainslie Schools, this community comes alive with people passing by and children playing in the park.

The word "opportunity" is used rather flippantly in the real estate world to stimulate interest in a home that is for sale. In this case, the honest truth is that 10 Toms Crescent presents a wonderful opportunity: you have a very rare chance to purchase a highly desirable home in an historic and delightful location.
