There was a time when a birds eye view of Bell Street would capture modest homes on large quarter acre blocks, the suburban dream. The cul de sac would be full of children playing from dawn to dusk and you knew everyone that lived in the street. Mrs Savage was at no.7, next door to Mr Kelly's house, the Tanky's, and Mrs Barnett were next to the lane way. On the other side were the Stryznecki's at no. 2, the Zutt's house, the Noakes at no. 6 and Mrs Keogh on the corner. Griffith was brand new, from the elevation of Bell Street you could see the floods at the Causeway and Griffith shops seemed so far away from Manuka!
Today, while the history and character remains, the birds eye view has changed. Contemporary homes with modern refurbishment, beautiful architecturally designed homes and a location that is uniquely placed in an inner suburb of Canberra.
One thing remains the same in Bell Street, the sense of neighbourhood is strong, the quiet street scape invites family and the local lifestyle is abundant with shopping precincts, fresh markets and a multitude of restaurants and cafes.
The home is surrounded by expanses of green corridors, historic tree plantings and an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary architecture. Griffith itself offers an enviable lifestyle, an early suburb influenced by the Garden City Plan in a time when the city was finding its identity.
The premium position at the top of Bell Street offers a fully refurbished and modernised family home, with flowing interiors filled with natural light. North sun streams into the front lounge and the elevation provides views to Black Mountain. Modernised to meet the needs of contemporary living, this home offers a serene and tranquil haven in an inner location. A peaceful sanctuary in a suburb that is now bustling and fast changing.
