With a touch of sentimentality, for those of us who find delight in all the character of Canberra homes and the tree-lined streets of one of our older suburbs, there is no limit to our affection for the interesting and diverse homes that are part of our rich and youthful story.

Peacefully situated within the quiet, residential enclave of Dickson, you can imagine yourself living here at the bates.home.

Driving home to Bates Street, where established trees meet in the middle and create a canopy of summer shade and dappled sunshine. The front facade invites you in with a nod to the home's 1950s roots, with character charm and curated gardens which have grown and settled into the suburban streetscape over time. The position is ideal, with the tranquil Dickson wetlands nearby, and an easy walk away from everything you need.

Thoughtfully updated for modern family living, the scandi-inspired interiors at the bates.home are a wonderful surprise. A beautiful blend of organic, honey-coloured timber textures and natural white creates a refreshing space to feel at ease.

The open-plan layout embraces functionality and flexibility, catering to the contemporary suburban dweller. Fully renovated and impeccably presented, modern kitchen and bathrooms feature generous integrated joinery. Perhaps the most significant update is the addition of full length, double glazed windows, allowing gorgeous natural light to fill and lift the home.

Cleverly integrated with the outdoor spaces, the protected sunroom, shady established trees focal to the garden, chooks and veggie patches inspire a wholistic lifestyle. The connectedness and energy of the community here is infectious - you feel it when you pop out for a walk around the wetlands, enjoy a coffee over at Highroad, or spend Saturday morning at the Dickson Oval watching the local soccer game. Enjoy the connection to the community, the proximity to nature and easy access to the city centre.
