62 Limestone Avenue, nestled in the foothills of Mt Ainslie, was built using natural materials in 1940 when Canberra was little more than a country town. The architect was Kenneth Oliphant, recognised locally as an important figure in the development of private residential architecture in Canberra. The house celebrates the rich history of these early builds and honours all that is essential for creating a warm and welcoming family home with a blend of European and cottage styles.
Enjoying the convenience and charm of inner city living with the luxury and elegance found in this distinguished historic precinct of Ainslie, the original cottage has been stylishly renovated and extended, celebrating the original charm and carefully interweaving sustainable practices into the build.
As you enter the home you will be impressed by the wonderful balance of formal and informal living areas. With polished hardwood floors connecting throughout these zones, each room in the home has a unique quality. An ornate ceiling, picture rails and large fireplace in the formal lounge room through to the beautiful stained glass windows and claw bath in the bathroom, the home is full of prized gems.
With back-to-grid solar panels, hydronic heating throughout the house, water tanks and retrofitted double glazing to the front sash windows and north facing windows the home has been sensitively extended to optimise the broad northerly aspect. The kitchen, master bedroom and study are all soaked in sunshine and complemented by a protected sunroom accessed through French doors from the dining room and the kitchen.
The garden has mature established trees and garden beds with Canberra red brick pavers and flat grass areas, setting the scene for a perfectly placed backyard family celebration or a relaxed evening BBQ with friends. There is good off street parking at the front of the home and plenty of external storage.
Set on a large flat block the home, available for the first time in over 60 years, is sure to appeal to families looking to enjoy all the delights of inner north living. Be sure to check out this rare find on Limestone.
