The home feels gently forested, soothed and caressed by the wisdom of old growth gardens. There is a vibe…a gentle easy grace, a tranquil leafy enclosure that belies the buzzing creativity of the central inner-north locale. Within evocative rooms with textural walls in chalky white and soaring ceilings, usher in a deep sense of calm. Utterly charming French doors provide a visual bridge between inside and out, splashing sunlight across the floors.
This beautiful three-bedroom family home has been constructed with an attention to material and quality. Home to Keith and Jude for over fifty years; the home has stood the test of time. Lovingly cared for and brimming with story, this old world charmer has all the character you would expect from a 60s original, combined with the coveted modern amenity of excellent spatial arrangement and multiple connection to outdoors.
Ideally placed within the sought-after eastern side of Campbell, the home is a few steps from Mt Ainslie Reserve and the War Memorial. A long driveway rises a slight incline, travelling beneath the wistful canopy of greenery to single garage. A welcoming front terrace set with coach light, wrought iron balustrade and blue slate, sets the tone and opens to wide foyer. There is lots of room to hang coats and bags, depositing devices and closing the door on the outside world after the long day.
The open living, dining spans the full width of the house with French doors that can be flung open to both front terrace and sunny deck, privatised by teeming cottage gardens, wall of Japanese maples. It is not hard to imagine summer evenings, drinks on the terrace, the long garden views as the sun fades. Elegant dinners, plates passed from kitchen to dining table via the servery window. And of course, coffee on the eastern deck, watching the first light fall through the tree branches.
A buttercup yellow kitchen with neat rows of cupboards, clever small appliance nook/coffee station and gleaming striped timber countertops opens to a small side terrace, twined in purple flowering wisteria. And there is the neat alignment of two sunny north facing bedrooms, both with floor to ceiling built-in-robes. Classic 60s square tiles cast a chartreuse colour across the walls and tub recess, within the adjacent genteel family bathroom.
Corner windows capture elevated views across treetops, glimpses of distant mountains…the master nicely removed at the front of the home and set up for maximum relaxation. A wall of cabinetry takes care of storage as ensuite bathroom delights in baby pink, aligning with the cherry tree that blossoms outside the window.
Crazy paving runs along the edge of the lawn, cutting a direct path to the light filled garden studio. Signature French doors can be left open to the garden as you work and create… a tranquil space sometimes enjoyed as a guest bedroom or claimed as a teen retreat.
