Pretty on Piper!

Auction Location: On site

If you've been looking for an Ainslie cottage that has heaps of character and charm but is also filled with comfort and modern convenience, then look no further! This 1950's-built home has been insulated and further clad on the exterior to add energy efficiency. Add to this ducted reverse-cycle heating and cooling and you have a home fit for all seasons.

Access to the home is by way of a charming red Canberra brick path. A cute entry hall and a right turn takes you into the spacious lounge with glorious timber sash windows. One of my favourite features is the thoroughly modern kitchen, renovated in 2016 and boasting premium European appliances. This is a great space and is large enough to hold a dining table – perfect for family meals and get togethers. French doors open onto an expansive north-facing sunny hardwood deck which is a magic spot to entertain.

The bathroom has been renovated in timeless black-and-white, and there is a separate toilet for convenience. All 3 bedrooms are a good size, and the home has a lovely feel. Piper Street is a quiet tree-lined street with a real sense of community, and is nestled firmly in the North Ainslie Primary catchment area. Also worth noting is the generous back yard boasting established lemon, lime, cherry, apricot and bay trees, sage, rosemary and an abundant raspberry patch.

Living in Ainslie is an absolute privilege, and this area gives you easy access to the wonderful Mt Ainslie Nature Reserve as well as the lovely Dickson Wetlands and the famous Ainslie shops.
