Held by one family for generations, officer.home is flawlessly attended and has a rare enduring quality and consummate presentation. With gorgeous features - plantation shutters, timber-sash and muntin windows, luxe new carpet, earthy tiles, and generous use of Canberra 'reds' throughout the landscaping - the home feels tenderly gestured and beautifully realised. In the front corner of the garden, a sculpture - nest with three eggs - a tribute to the three daughters, born into this loving forever family home.

The exquisite and thoughtfully conceived garden, with its cohesion of colour, texture, shapes is a symphony of order and symmetry. Inside a casual family life thrives. with two generous living areas, balanced perfectly on either side of the central kitchen, both open to separate and unique outdoor rooms. Throw in a stunning garden studio and you have a meticulous family home, complete for work, rest and play.

The entrance and open living dining faces north-east, welcoming daylight and opening to a charming front courtyard. This intimate outdoor room, protected by walls and shaded by trees, is a sequestered nook, ideal for morning coffee, reading, discussing the day ahead.

Stepping through to the kitchen, the second living opens via a panorama of warm, timber, muntin windows and doors, onto deck and garden. With ample storage, including step-in pantry, generous island bench and Bosch appliances, the kitchen is the heart of the home; a warm gathering space.

Four handsome bedrooms all equipped with built-in-robes, grace the southern side of the house and connect to the family bathroom. A second bathroom and laundry sits to one side of the kitchen.

The impressive rear deck with custom barbecue cabinetry, including built in fridge, creates a fantastic outdoor dining and entertaining room. Think; family and friends enjoying the afternoon light, celebrating, spilling over onto gentle lawn, and fire-pit area with custom bench seating.

Sheltered behind camellia hedge and screened on both sides by sweet olives, the home is softly held, embraced, by the Boston ivy draped over the double garage. Further screened by verdant garden - Japanese maple, acer platanoide, magnolia, espaliered star jasmine - and privatized by courtyard walls, the officer.home has a delightful balance of formal lines and curated garden rooms.

There is a particularly special atmosphere inside the garden studio - so still and quiet - with gorgeous polished concrete floors, ample bespoke cabinetry, timber doors and windows onto greenery. It is a stylish enclave where ideas can evolve, as the garden impacts on your creativity. Generous enough for connection, brainstorming, it is the perfect home office or company headquarters - travel to work from home by walking into your own back yard.

Ainslie is a sought-after village, known for its quiet tree-lined streets, unchanged cottages, green spaces and relaxed community vibe. Close to the Dickson precinct, Dickson wetlands and Mt Ainslie reserve, this central locale, connects you to a lively mix of independent cafes, restaurants and shops, green spaces, walking and biking trails. Close to public and private schools, transport, and the famous Ainslie shops, the officer.home is also just a stone's throw from the dynamic Braddon Precinct, the CBD, and the ANU.
