A piece of history

front of home

A true rare find, 3 Hart Street in O’Connor is one of Canberra’s unique Tocumwal cottages.

LJ Hooker Dickson franchise owner Stephen Bunday says there are fewer than 200 of the cottages that have become something of a Canberra icon since they were relocated from Tocumwal NSW to the ACT in the 1940s.

“The Tocumwals, or ‘tokes’ as they are affectionately known, were brought up from the Air Force base after World War II and have been lovingly adored by Canberrans ever since,” Bunday says.

“This home will appeal to anyone who likes the character and charm of older homes and has been searching for a Canberra Tocumwal.

“The close proximity to schools and playground and the quiet neighbourhood make this a great home for a young family.”

Set on 780sqm in a heritage listed precinct, the home oozes character and charm, with a large front verandah, picture rails, timber windows and an open fireplace.

There’s also high ceilings, polished Cypress timber floors and a professional landscaped rear yard with entertaining deck.

Just minutes from the O’Connor Shops and the CBD, Bunday says the location of this character-filled home is hard to beat.

“It’s a fabulous location, in a stunning, leafy cul-de-sac street surrounded by playgrounds and parklands.”
