Everything Old is New Again!

Come and discover the enduring charm of Tocumwal cottages in Canberra's Inner North – a treasure trove of character and charisma. Boasting an array of enchanting features, including high battened ceilings, picture rails and timber windows, the popularity for these treasured pieces of history has never waned, and 12 Officer Crescent is no exception. Embodying the perfect blend of historic elegance and modern comfort, it stands as a shining example of what's possible.

The owners enlisted the renowned local architect, Gina Carmody, to craft a design that would capture the essence of this historic gem. The results are nothing short of magical. Situated on a generous 982sqm block, this residence has been thoughtfully expanded, nearly doubling its size to a spacious 241sqm, plus a double garage.

The updated floor plan now boasts a generous family room, separate lounge room with open fireplace, separate dining room and four bedrooms. One of the absolute standouts is the main suite, a spacious haven boasting a parent's retreat, walk-in-robe and luxurious ensuite.

The extension seamlessly marries the old with the new and connects the indoors to the outdoors through a series of timber French doors. Step out from the dining room onto a covered deck, perfect for hosting gatherings of all sizes. For larger events, a second entertaining deck and paved courtyard provide ample space for your guests to enjoy. The low-maintenance gravel area offers a tranquil setting for relaxation around a firepit, making it an ideal spot for unwinding after a long day.

Ainslie is a vibrant and highly desirable suburb, boasting a diverse array of homes, from historic treasures to brand-new residences. Surrounded by picturesque parks and with easy access to Mt Ainslie Nature Reserve, it's a paradise for families. You'll find the best local shops in Canberra, top-notch schools, and even the trendy Braddon district within close proximity. Add to that the allure of Mt Majura and the tranquillity of the Dickson wetlands, and you have the perfect setting for your family's future.
