suburban life in the city

Ainslie is well known for many things. The thriving local shopping centre with Edgar's pub, beautiful restaurants, and family-owned supermarket. The community ties are strong with two primary schools and local football club, and the environment is influenced by the 'garden city movement' with parks and gardens integrated into the suburb's plan. Yet, one of the most unique features of the suburb is its position from city to bush.

Understandably, many view the suburb as a coveted place to be. Not only does it have large, established suburban blocks, tree-lined streets and garden city ideals, it is positioned - actually nestled - at the base of Mt Ainslie with a reserve and bush as its backdrop. 

The position offers a lifestyle like no other. An active lifestyle and connectedness to nature, with the benefits of the vibrant, cosmopolitan city within minutes.

270 Duffy Street Ainslie is a home to take full advantage of suburban life in the city. A privately built family home for over 50 years, double brick in construction with tiled roof and delightful picturesque façade. Two generous living areas are complemented by three comfortable bedrooms, with a new bathroom and modern kitchen. Gorgeous large windows invite light filled living spaces, whilst the renovations and extensions in the '70s have accommodated family life with modern convenience.

The spectacular 1136 m2 suburban allotment, backing Mt Ainslie reserve, offers space and room to grow.

From the bird's eye view, the block is revealed, the huge plot scattered with shady established trees, lawn, cottage gardens and direct access to the reserve. The block size is premium, as is the close proximity to the city and bush surrounds.
