Few opportunities arise to acquire a timelessly beautiful Canberra red brick with an impressive front facade and high-pitched terracotta roof. This classic Ainslie gem is positioned on a magnificent garden allotment in the highly sought-after city end of Ainslie at 51 Foveaux Street. The house has been intuitively crafted to blend the original, classically elegant heritage features and materials of early Canberra, with a vibrant contemporary update.

Fall in love with the character, the charm of yesteryear, the spectacular position and of course the original Rayburn wood fuel stove.

Because the house is quintessentially old Canberra, it provides an Ainslie lifestyle and a home with the character and texture of the original 1940's brick cottage. The original style has been enhanced and sympathetically extended to provide comfortable modern living.

This much-loved and impeccably maintained property showcases exquisite character details and modern finishes in generously proportioned spaces. The beautiful original facade and front porch lead to a wide entrance hall which adjoins the front lounge room and dining room. The generous floor plan of three large bedrooms, flexible fourth bedroom/study, separate front lounge and dining room, and modern kitchen provide functional spaces for easy living.

This home exudes a feeling of warmth and liveability. The interiors are charming and the gardens a delight. This is the chance to embrace the privilege of acquiring a truly special house.
