When a home has been owned by the one family for over 50 years, it holds something special that can't easily be quantified in a features list. It's something that is felt and experienced, the emotional response you have when you enter through the front door. When I first walked through 78 Duffy Street, I couldn't help but be enveloped in calm and happiness, a truly heart-warming energy fills this home.

Perched on the high side of Duffy street, anchored to its foundations with stone plinths and double brick construction, this home proudly looks out over Ainslie's redbrick charm, past the city, to Black Mountain. Sunlight stretches in through the living area and bedrooms, soaking the home in warmth during cool winter months, while the deciduous trees out front shelter the home from the summer sun.

Timber joinery flank the kitchen with ceiling high display cabinets, while the kitchen sink overlooks the private rear garden and entertaining area. A second living area then entices you into the backyard, or through to the three generous bedrooms.

This is a family home that has played host to four children growing up, and bringing their babies home, grandchildren who are now adults too. 78 Duffy street is where heart can be found. It speaks of Christmas' spent around the family dining table, the home animated by generations of laughter and memories, evenings cosied up with loved ones, even day to day life enriched by living somewhere truly special.
