Charming Forrest family home
Perfectly positioned on a quiet leafy street in one of Canberra's most desirable locations in Forrest is this charming solid brick four-bedroom family home exuding character and a stately presence.
This home is unmistakeably a Canberra home from a magical era with a modern twist. Classic sash timber windows, French doors and character styling all tasteful features from yester year evident throughout, with timber floors, high ceilings, moulded architraves and wide skirtings. The use of bold colours and the remodelling of both bathrooms and bi-fold doors in the family room refreshes and still sympathises with the period of the home.
A functional floor plan provides an entry that leads into a formal elegant lounge with open fireplace; perfect for winter warmth. A spacious dining room adjoins providing for many entertaining dinners.

Off the kitchen meals area is a bright and light family room which opens up with bi-fold doors and overlooks a sunny entertaining deck and private rear garden. The highly private gardens are beautifully protected by lavish green hedging on three sides, providing well for discrete outdoor entertaining.
