Designed by architect Peter Byfield and constructed by respected builders Sutton and Horsley Homes, this versatile home could suit either upsizers or downsizers! At the city end of Ainslie, tucked away in an attractive setting, Mount Ainslie is your extended back yard. Three houses are inconspicuously accommodated on one of Ainslie's biggest blocks, offering neighbourly support whilst preserving individual privacy. Your private gate opens directly onto the nature and trails of Mt Ainslie reserve.
Step inside the front door to a generous-sized entry, where the green of the atrium and the warmth of timber floors both welcome and surprise. You're in a single level home, where the first impression of light and space is only reinforced as your exploration continues. The house feels roomier than its comfortable 233m2 (195m2 of living, plus double garage). As it has been built on one of Ainslie's largest blocks, this still allows residence 2 a generous 610sqm of land (approximate).
This is a special property, amply displaying the trademarks of its creators, and with many features rarely seen in the Canberra housing market. In its first year, recognition came in the form of an ACT Region "Best of" building award. With time, the gardens have matured, while the home is still striking. Built around a soothing central atrium, the home is filled with natural light. Both living areas are truly spacious, face north and give onto a relaxing courtyard. Perhaps sipping a coffee with a friend in morning sun, whilst the waterfall wall acts as meeting place and drinking point for native birds, this restful place is your own inner-city sanctum.
All four bedrooms are a good size and have built in storage - the generous main bedroom looks out towards the reserve; the walk-in robe is totally separate from the roomy ensuite, with its spa bath, Tastic and heated towel rail waiting. There is ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling for year-round comfort, and a double lock up garage with automatic doors and internal access for peace of mind. Timber floors evoke a feeling of warmth, complemented by carpet in the main living and bedrooms. Whilst the water feature is the centrepiece of the gardens, there are raised vegetable beds and enough to keep a gardener happy, without tying them down. The location means you are close to everything: 12 minutes' drive to the airport; 12 minutes' walk to Canberra Centre or the buzz of Braddon. You're on the fringe of the city but immersed in nature, which is a perfect way to be! The advanced security system lets you tell the Postie where to park a parcel or see what's happening at home, night or day, from anywhere in the world where your phone has reception.
The current owners are moving North after 16 happy years and are reluctant but willing sellers.
