Single level living in tranquil tree-lined street - Guide price from $1,050,000
As the saying goes, they don’t make them like they used to, and this cosy home at 33 Lewin Street is the perfect demonstration. A solid double brick duplex house that has certainly stood the test of time, set in a location that has only improved over the years.
The picturesque street lined with stunning deciduous trees characterises Canberra’s Inner North. Coming home is always enlivening, but it’s especially exciting in the autumn months when the trees put on the most beautiful display of colour, and again in the spring when you’re enveloped in a sea of green.
The home itself stands at the ready for a contemporary update, should you wish. It’s a canvas from which to paint your lifestyle, however, it’s perfectly liveable if you’d rather embrace its original charm and move in immediately. The full internal repaint just adds to the freshness of this lovely home.
The floorplan is sensible and features three bedrooms with two separate living areas, it also enjoys the benefits of ducted gas heating and is encased with secure Crim-safe mesh screens on the doors and windows for peace of mind.
The backyard provides a quaint setting for the most charming of entertaining areas. There’s plenty of space for an outdoor barbeque and dining setting, and perhaps even a firepit for the long gatherings at home with friends. The home would also lend itself to an extension into this ample rear yard space.
Venturing out is just as enticing when Braddon and the City are a mere tram ride away – easily accessible via a short stroll to Northbourne Avenue. Head a little further over the road and you’ll hit Dickson’s popular food precinct and Canberra’s unofficial Chinatown. Benefit from regular and very accessible bus services that provide easy access to the ANU, City, Hospital and Belconnen Mall. But closer to home, just a three-minute walk away, you’ll find the local Lyneham shops and preschool, infants, primary and high school as well as Brindabella College. Everything is at your doorstep.
