This gorgeous ground floor apartment is situated within the coveted suburb of Lyneham, on a classic street, lined with 100 year old oaks that form a shady canopy in summer. Sun-drenched and airy, with a joyous vintage vibe, the home is both peaceful haven and enviable inner-city pad.
Wonderfully positioned, backing parkland and an easy stroll to O'Connor Ridge Reserve, this one bedroom apartment is fabulously easy-care, and steeped in a garden quietude. The home is within easy reach of the excellent shops, restaurants and bars of the quaint village centres of Lyneham, O'Connor and Ainslie and a stone's throw from all the delights of Dickson, Braddon and the CBD.
The building is all classic modernist 60s brick, with elegant wrought iron balconies and crisp white casement windows. Stunning new landscaping edges the frontage, with wide granite pathways, large sandstone seating blocks and array of pretty natives. We love the choice of eucalyptus cinerea and the way the geometric mid-century front doors have been painted a silvery green to match.
Housed within the second building, no.15 is further privatised from the street and overlooks a green courtyard. Vintage climbing roses crowd the veranda railings and mature shady plum trees dot the grassed common area. We love the concrete porticos that shelter the entryway and the simple white wall sconces.
Within large windows welcome natural light and frame leafy greenery at every turn. High ceilings contribute to a feeling of spaciousness as living flows to a combined kitchen and meals. The kitchen is all colour and happiness, with a distinct 60s flair. Timber floors are literally painted with sunlight and beautifully preserved original cabinetry shines in classic white. Worktops have been updated and are set against a new tiled splashback with pops of perfectly curated green and mustard.
A wide bank of windows castes natural light across the bedroom and captures the colours of the plum trees. There is a mirrored robe for seamless storage and an adjoining bathroom, finished in crisp white tiling with notes of electric blue. A covered carpark is included and there is a convenient communal laundry.
The central locale of this beautiful inner north suburb connects you to the independent eateries and bars of O'Connor shops, and the Braddon and Dickson precincts. The home is also just few steps from Lyneham shops and the iconic Tilley's for long brunches and the occasional live Jazz on Saturday evenings and The Front for great coffee. The Diamond Way Buddhist centre is also close to hand, as is the primary and high school. Ample green spaces, shared bike and walking paths, wetlands, and beautiful street trees create a tranquil village experience, just a stone's throw from the CBD and ANU.
