4 Barron Street Deakin, ACT 2600


Prime residential block with executive potential

Surrounded by multi-million-dollar homes, this rare brick veneer cottage with some original features promises a sweet future for an astute buyer.
Set on a 654m2 block, the cottage offers a myriad of opportunities. Keep and refresh it, rent it out, or let your imagination run riot and create a trophy home on this tree-lined street that is minutes away from elite schools, the Deakin shops, Parliamentary Triangle and the Canberra CBD.
With a history dating back to the early 1950s, the home charts the progression of this desirable inner south location from a time when its flat and north-facing backyard was a drawcard for neighbourhood kids who flocked to play backyard cricket on the grassed expanse, or to swing on the clothesline.
The original Hills Hoist is still there, as are small remnants of what was likely a then-highly fashionable paving patio. It is since been replaced by a pergola-covered terrace that runs half the width of the home.
Inside, sash windows are additional reminders of the home's pedigree. The original fireplace to the lounge has had a more recent update and the chimney breast in the kitchen has made way for a contemporary gas cooktop and electric oven.
Other modern upgrades include a refreshed bathroom, downlights throughout and ducted heating.
A detached garage boasts period barn doors. It also houses the laundry annexe and a separate toilet.
