Tocumwal Heaven!

Auction Location: On Site

Nestled at the terminus of a tranquil cul-de-sac and siding onto parkland, this character home seamlessly blends historical charm with modern elegance. Architecturally extended and thoughtfully renovated, 12 Way Street exudes timeless allure.

Boasting a delightful façade, discreetly shielded by a high, private hedge, the heritage listing in O'Connor's esteemed 'Tocumwal Precinct' ensures an enduring streetscape. Behind the hedge, you will follow a meandering path of Canberra red bricks to uncover an inviting front verandah, reminiscent of a bygone era.

Inside, the original part of the home exudes character with high ceilings, picture rails, timber windows, an open fireplace, and polished Ash floors. The extension integrates utility, amenity, energy efficiency, and comfort and offers an open plan design. The charming family room opens onto a hardwood rear deck through French doors, seamlessly blending the indoor and outdoor spaces.

There are four spacious bedrooms, including a large main with walk-in-robe and ensuite. Upstairs you will be delighted to discover a separate living space with picturesque views to Mt Ainslie. The main bathroom is an absolute standout with a luxurious bath overlooking the tranquil backyard through French doors.

An added attraction is a self-contained studio, perfect for use as a retreat or home office. The enchanting back garden, reflective of O'Connor's essence, showcases mature trees, a thriving vegetable garden, and a delightful chook yard, complemented by a pizza oven, garden shed and dry storage.

Situated just a brief stroll from the vibrant O'Connor shops and within proximity to ANU, CSIRO, the O'Connor ridge, bushland, and beloved parkland, 12 Way Street epitomizes the quintessential O'Connor lifestyle.

Having cherished the home and its location, the sellers, now residing outside Canberra, reluctantly offer this gem to the market. A rare opportunity awaits for discerning buyers to embrace the rich heritage and contemporary comforts of this exceptional residence.
