Every Home has a Story...

Auction Location: On Site.

Every home has a story (particularly in the older suburbs of Canberra) but this one tells a special story of a family growing up in Ainslie. 19 Shortland Crescent was lovingly built and decorated by Mr and Mrs Matthews in 1957 to house their growing family. Mr Matthews, a qualified plumber with an extensive network of mates in the trades, set about building the family home which they would retain until now. Everywhere you look, there are touches of Mr Matthews, and this is a big part of the charm of this home. Full brick construction and terracotta tiles on the roof, the home is larger than most 3 bedroom Ainslie cottages with spacious, character filled rooms. The wide entry hall gives a touch of grandeur and there is a separate lounge, large separate dinning plus a family/meals area. Although the home is mostly original, the kitchen has been renovated and overlooks the backyard. The pink bathroom is as it was 64 years ago but in immaculate condition and the laundry has kept its original charm.

Facing North East, with a generous back yard complete with covered back verandah, an extra covered seating area and a lock up garage, this place offers tons of potential. This home is nestled in a leafy Shortland Crescent, in an excellent location, close to schools, the famous Ainslie shops, the Dickson shops and the light rail.
The Matthew's family have made so many memories here but now it's time for a new family to make theirs...
