Originally constructed in 1942, this dignified residence was exactingly extended & renovated during the mid-1980s. It has been meticulously maintained by the same owners ever since. Situated in a wide, oak-lined street, opposite the Turner Parkland precinct, its proximity to ANU, Canberra City & the trendy O'Connor shops ensure it will have many admirers.

A magnificent, aged oak graces the generous nature strip, whilst an equally impressive, deciduous pin oak borders the fastidiously paved driveway. The sunny front garden is screened by mature, evergreen viburnum hedging & is characterised by stunning garden artistry, raised lavender-filled garden beds & blue-flowering agapanthus lining the path to the entrance. A beautiful Chinese elm & a bevy of youthful crepe myrtles complete the foreground picture.

The attractive façade tells its own story. Canberra red-brick references its history, as does the high-pitched, terracotta-tiled roof & double-hung windows. A bay window extension, forming part of the formal living area, takes advantage of the riveting outlook.

Inside, a welcoming formal entry complements the original, opaque-glass front door. To its left, the dramatically spacious lounge room is a gleaming, aesthetic delight. The slow combustion heater with mantlepiece adds to the ambience. Substantial polished bamboo flooring, rendered, white double-brick walls & high ceilings feature throughout the home. Window treatments in the majority are Luxaflex duo blinds, providing excellent insulation & allowing ample natural light.

The Tasmanian ash timber kitchen has undergone regular revamping since its initial creation. It offers extensive rolled-edge, stone-look benchtops, ample cupboard space, a display cabinet, a rangehood, a Miele dishwasher & an electric cooktop with a wall oven. Entertaining should be a breeze with a kitchen such as this. This space seamlessly adjoins an enormous, solar-oriented family room, the lustre of its timber floors enhanced by the sunlight streaming in. Discreetly positioned spaces such as the large double-sink laundry, powder & storage rooms are handy. It overlooks a sheltered, brick-paved alfresco courtyard & superbly landscaped rear grounds.

The bedroom & bathroom wing continues the warming, atmospheric theme with a centred skylight which welcomes heaps of natural light into the wide hallways. All 4 bedrooms are character-filled & spacious, with the main being a veritable suite in itself. This admirably luminous, peaceful room offers calming outlooks, a generous walk-in robe & chandelier, with a decadently large ensuite. The original, re-enamelled, cast iron bathtub with a tiled surround addition is the perfect place for indulging in a glass of wine, a bowl of grapes or your current novel. Adding to the aura, it overlooks an exceptionally private, ivy & wisteria-covered, brick-walled courtyard. 2 of the bedrooms feature their original ornate cornices & panelled plasterboard ceilings. The 3rd offers built-in robes & shelving. The main bathroom, handy to the secondary bedrooms, is in excellent, serviceable condition.

The spectacular rear grounds possibly have a stronger organic base than the average plot, with the soil being enriched annually by home-grown compost these last 35 years. No wonder the vegetable garden provides such great bounty! A botanical wonderland, the trio of mature cherry trees, perfumed roses, star jasmine, well-grown camellias, rhododendrons, azaleas & wisteria combine to provide a riot of colour & screening growth. A dignified walnut tree performs the role of main centrepiece. The fortunate new future owners will enjoy a level of privacy in the garden which is exceptionally rare in any city these days. The double-brick, free-standing, double-car garage with remote door, in the same style as the house, features a fine, insulated home office behind it. And there's storage galore!

Turner should require no introduction. One of Canberra's older suburbs, it has inherited the best of Australia's garden city spatial planning, with homes on large lots, generous building setbacks, wide, tree-lined streets, a high proportion of public parks & proximity to a network of urban amenities such as the City & ANU.
