This stylish three bedroom home was once a part of the Australian National University development that was built to house the academic staff. Built in 1964 this area of Carroll street was developed following the "Radburn" pattern first created in New Jersey, USA. The central feature of this type of development is that all houses face into parkland and pathways taking you to the local shops and community facilities. A clever design to encourage a tight-knit community which still continues today.
Nestled into a well established cottage garden and fronting the Carroll Street Common is a charming terrace home rarely found in Canberra. Centrally located amongst the leafy streets of Hughes this welcoming terrace home presents a great opportunity for a relaxed lifestyle.
The private courtyard welcomes you from the street into the home with room for a fire pit and access to the carport. The weathered brick path winds its way to the covered and semi-enclosed front porch. As well as providing a covered entrance to the front door, this outdoor space can be used as an outdoor dining or a separate living area.
Upon entering the home you will be impressed by the old world charm and overall feel of the home. The separate formal living and dining areas offer a north facing aspect bathing the hardwood floors in natural sunlight. The recently installed French doors open onto the north facing private deck, seamlessly integrating the entertaining spaces.
The kitchen is largely original and features a dishwasher and a stainless steel Smeg stove with electric oven and gas cooktop. It overlooks the private courtyard and leads into the cleverly designed laundry which has its own access to a powder room.
Upstairs the three bedrooms all have built-in robes and are light-filled and feature garden views. Two of the three bedrooms are double in size and all bedrooms are serviced by the updated bathroom plus a study nook on the landing.
Don't miss this opportunity to purchase in popular Hughes and be a part of Canberra's history. Just move in and enjoy this separate title home which is only moments from transport, local shops, excellent schools and is an easy walk to Woden, the hospital precinct and only a short drive to the Parliamentary Triangle and the CBD.
