One of the best things about the nation’s capital is just how surrounded by nature we are. You could be walking the buzzing strips of Lonsdale Street or the Kingston Foreshore one minute, and less than a 10 minute drive away could see you hiking amongst nature or lapping up natural expanses as far as the eye can see. Want to enjoy Canberra’s natural surrounds every day? Here are four homes for sale on Zango right now where a nature reserve, bush walk or ample greenery is right on your doorstep.
Ainslie is already a highly coveted suburb, and Duffy Street, which frames the western border of Mount Ainslie Nature Reserve, is one of the suburb’s most tightly held spots. Perched on the high side of Duffy Street is this three bedroom home, which has been owned by the same family for over 50 years. The lovingly renovated home has light-filled living areas and good-sized bedrooms. You can glimpse the leafy surrounds from most of the rooms and even the kitchen sink, or head out to the private rear garden and entertaining area to really lap it up. And it’s just a short walk to join the track to make your way up Mount Ainslie, to be rewarded with what is arguably the best view of the capital.
