About this property

Cute and Cosy Campbell Cottage, Close to all Conveniences

There's a reason Campbell is one of the most sought-after suburbs in Canberra and the home at 84 Blamey Crescent is the perfect demonstration of this. It's nothing short of a storybook cottage, emitting all the charm and character one can only get from a home of its age and in this locale.

Across its three bedrooms and one bathroom, you can feel this home is full of stories which are all safely contained in its full double brick construction - they certainly made homes to last back in the 50's. But you'll be equally as happy to know, it's been updated throughout to meet the most comfortable of modern living standards.

The internal and external of the home has been freshly painted, there are brand-new carpets in the living area and freshly polished pine floorboards throughout the entry, bedrooms, kitchen and dining area. Discover also new blinds plus halogen and LED lighting, so you'll never feel like you're living in the dark ages. Keeping a comfortable temperature is made easy with ducted gas heating vented under floor and ducted evaporative cooling throughout.

Even the kitchen is upgraded with a brand-new oven, cooktop and rangehood. It's a huge tick for the home chef who knows that there's nothing quite like the smell of a Sunday roast permeating through the home (and given the cottage's character, it's particularly atmospheric here). No doubt you'll want to open the picturesque French doors from the dining area and let the smell travel across the suburb. The mature gardens and paved driveway that culminates in a carport complete the picture and make for a quaint and adorable backdrop.

On weekends, take the dog for a walk to one of the numerous surrounding parks, there's a particularly cute meet up of dogs in Hassett Park and playground in front of popular Intra Speciality Coffee. We also recommend dropping into Paranormal Wines to grab a delicious drop or two?

Overall, this home is an accessible entry point into the tightly-held suburb of Campbell. It will be the cheapest free-standing, separate title house available in the last 12 months where prices have exceeded $4,600,000 in the suburb. But rest assured there is opportunity – and space – to continue upgrading until it becomes the home you've always wanted, in the location you no longer simply dream about.
