Circa 1927

An extremely rare offering in the heart of Old Canberra, this house was last on the market in 1992. Just moments from both Telopea Park School and a short stroll to the best dining the Inner South has on offer, this spacious and thoughtfully extended two storey home is loaded with charm and character. Introduced by a formal entrance, the home's internal layout is visually pleasing with its solid wood floors and functional living spaces. Downstairs offers an inviting formal loungeroom with original fireplace and picture rails, making it the perfect parent's retreat. The sun-drenched open plan kitchen and family room with a lovely garden outlook, make an ideal retreat for kids. Three double sized bedrooms with main bathroom and powder room are complemented by a study or fifth bedroom. Hidden under the study is a cellar that will protect an extensive wine collection and provide extensive storage. The striking handmade Jarrah staircase leads upstairs to the master bedroom, ensuite and walk-in robe. The large laundry provides internal access to the tandem garage. The block at 1,075m2, is one of the largest in Barton, is extensively landscaped and has as its crowning jewel, one of the oldest, most beautiful Oak trees in Canberra.
