Where the old meets the new


front of property

This cottage in the exclusive Inner South suburb of Griffith perfectly brings together the old and the new, melding the charm of old Canberra with a sleek, modern extension and interior.

LJ Hooker Canberra City sales manager and auctioneer Kaylene King says the home has an architecturally designed extension by Environmental Building Solutions, which evokes a “such a beautiful sense of two very different styles brought together in a stunning way”.

“One of my favourite things is driving down the tree-lined street and feeling that sense of a long-established suburb filled with homes of character.”

The four-bedroom home exudes luxury throughout, from the character-filled façade and features like the fireplace, to the grand, modern extension. The gourmet kitchen is the heart of the home, with Ceasarstone benchtops, timber accents and soaring, vaulted ceilings.

Three of the four bedrooms include walk-in robes and the main bedroom suite also includes a luxurious ensuite.

Through glass bi-fold doors, the open-plan living flows through to the private deck area with spa and electric awning, while the level block boasts lush, low-maintenance gardens.


“This is a home for a busy executive couple, who want quality and style but not the drag of a big garden,” says King.

“The other possibility is for a more mature couple who don’t want to compromise on living space and quality but need single level and easy-care gardens.

“Walk easily to Griffith shops, bike ride to Manuka, Kingston or the Foreshore. The area offers well-established school options.”
