A home amongst the gardens


home amongst the garden

Nestled among fairy-tale gardens, this home is a picture perfect 1950s cottage that’s bursting with character and charm.

LJ Hooker sales and marketing consultant, Naish Stormon, says the home has been beautifully maintained since it was built in 1957, with upgrades to the kitchen and the bathrooms.


“The gardens are amazing and are the result of 30 years of meticulous and thoughtful work,” he says.

“They feature a paved walk which winds through the gardens and tempts the walker with gazebos and shady nooks to stop and meditate on the superb surrounds.”

Mr Stormon says 87 Schlich Street would be the perfect new home for a number of different buyers, including families, couples and downsizers.


“A small family; downsizers who are looking for a superb location and quality of life to enjoy in retirement; a professional couple looking for a safe, serene, spiritually uplifting home to rest in and let the stresses of the day melt away; or someone looking to knock it down and build their dream home in a wonderful location.”

The home boasts 130sqm of living space, with a separate 52sqm studio with hardwood flooring. Features of this unique home include a spa bath, induction cooker and dishwasher, as well as character-filled living spaces.

“It is Yarralumla!” says Mr Stormon of the home’s prestigious location, “the area abounds in nature walks.

“At the end of the street is a beautiful park with views across the lake to Black Mountain and the tower.”
