Convenience, comfort and space!

The combined textures of painted brick, panelling and warm timbers soothe and please as you view this home. The spatial array elegantly sprawled across two-levels with multiple light filled social spaces, including a deeply peaceful front living area, with epic cedar windows that welcome nature within.

This gorgeous, extended three-bedroom duplex home occupies a wonderful position across from Hackett shops, surrounded by parks and green spaces and just moments from the city. The home is hidden behind a cluster of mature trees that shelter and shade an there is ample off-street parking, as a private driveway ushers to a gated carport and beyond to a garage.

Entrance is via a high walled courtyard, partly sheltered by a pergola, and home to flowering hanging pots, bright cordylines and succulents. The elevated front terrace is tiled in earthy mosaic tiles and the front door a satisfying rich vintage timber, complete with brass knocker.

Hard wearing floors gleam underfoot and there is an immediate vibe - part white-washed effortless grace and part art-filled, relaxed mid-century pad. And oh, so cool…think, gorgeous modernist pieces looking very much at home and the perfect combo of old meets new. We love the intricate details, from the coat rack perfectly placed to the right of the entrance door, to the delicate industrial wall light that softly illuminates the front living room.

There is so much to love about the duplex homes of this era, so integral to the Canberra landscape. Now an important part of our architectural history, their familiar floorplans and vintage charms are a welcome delight. This home exemplifies the rewards that come from restoring these beauties – the kitchen updated and opened out to foster open dialogue with the living and dining space, all informed by outdoor spill to decking and glorious light.

A long peninsula providing a spot to gather, as butcher's block worktops meet subway tiled splashbacks and a deep porcelain sink set beneath the large window. Crisp white cabinetry is matched with curved stainless-steel handles, in-keeping with the history of the home. Quality appliances including and induction cooktop and Bosch dishwasher usher in a sleek modern utility.

The dining table is a vision beneath the floor to ceiling windows that overlook the front courtyard. This long, elegant space merging to landscape, gifting the perfect alfresco lifestyle. There is also a separate library nook or playroom, graced by light via a wall of casement windows.

The second floor is the exclusive domain of three peaceful bedrooms and an all-white family bathroom with bathtub. The master bedroom has a wall of built-in-robes and large windows that frame Mount Majura. The second bedroom also takes in the grand form of the mountain and has excellent built-in-storage. The third has a lovely, airy privacy, as large picture windows frame tree-top views.

Canberra reds pave meandering paths as an orchard of fruiting trees, raised vegetable beds and swell of natives, gift a tranquil garden scene. Wattle trees dance in the breeze, as soft lawns give way to a firepit area and an outdoor bathtub that invites on its bed of white pebbles.

The home is handy to the dynamic precincts of Dickson, Braddon and amenable to the charming inner-north centres of Ainslie, O'Connor and Lyneham, extending a vibrant mix of independent cafés and shops. Hackett shops are just across the road with a mix of relaxed eateries and essentials. It is an easy stroll to the walking and riding trails of Mount Majura and very handy to transport and a variety of schools and colleges including Blue Gum school and the local pre-school.
