It's OK, we don't mind if you are picky when it comes to choosing your new home. You can want it all. And we can help. If you don't want to compromise on quality, but you also crave a deep grounding within nature, and enjoy an authentic, Inner North Canberra experience, then here's the residence you've been looking for. A heritage house in a sought-after precinct? This is the ultimate temptation.

From the outside, this 1926 home displays all the hallmarks of a heritage-listed residence. But step inside through the custom-commissioned black timber doors with iron detailing, and it's a spectacular vista of architectural detailing and modern, executive living. The property has been redesigned by award-winning architect Adam Hobill with the vision to preserve the original detailing while breathing new life into the walls for generations to come. The calibre of renovation is simply remarkable.

Set back from the street, within oversized garden grounds, the home is located within the highly sought-after Corroboree Park Heritage Precinct: Canberra's truly exceptional example of the original Garden City plan with a central park, tennis courts and community hall.

This stately family residence has an innate, deep connection with nature. Imagine being surrounded by fragrant flower trees, owner-nurtured azaleas and camellias, verdant veggie gardens, working beehives, worm farms, abundant birdlife with rosellas and cockatoos, neighbours with chickens – it's self-sustainability at its inner North best.

And yet – just look at the location. Walking distance to Canberra's CBD. Close to schools, shops, community hubs, parks, the Braddon precinct. An entertainer's delight, with expansive al fresco living areas, custom-made pizza oven, and that magnificent 1175sqm block of established gardens.

The impressive list of features is completed with 4 bedrooms and study, perfect for a growing family, and a fully self-contained studio with kitchen, bathroom and living areas.
