Iconic Duffy Street celebrates the community, history and city on which Ainslie has been built.

It is in the simple things that the most joy is found.

A simple footprint, a home privately built in 1958 by Heinrich Aur, Esq., an Austrian builder. 48 Duffy Street Ainslie is an example of mid-century architecture in Canberra with a fusion of European craftsmanship with art deco detailing.

A home characterised by simple shapes, geometric forms, pops of colour, and clean lines, the mid-century modern style of the home is joyful.

The moody interiors are beautiful in their 'updated originality', preserving their timeless quality condition. The craftsmanship is evident in the detailing, with custom built timber cabinetry throughout and bespoke interior design features.

Modern style and convenience is characterised by simplicity and democratic design. Timber panelling and custom joinery feature in the front lounge with open fireplace and timber mantle. Geometric elements are found in patterned glass tiles and a play on light in the textured glass front door.

Expansive windows afford views to both the city and Mt Ainslie behind, the elevated position and beautiful established gardens provide a sanctuary of privacy.

Visually compelling, a birds eye view of Duffy Street captures the striking position of the city to bush. Backing the reserve, you can not help but be influenced by nature living in one of the most coveted positions in Canberra.
