This home is waiting for a family to enjoy a generous back garden and the luxury of walking down the road to Parnell Kindergarten and Parnell Primary School. No doubt the first owner, Captain Bell, enjoyed the serenity of this cul de sac, just as much as the current owners have. For the first time in 37 years this 1011m2 property is offered to the market. When the owners bought this home in 1979 they were motivated by being within walking distance of the University where they both worked. It was the time the Oil Crisis and of car-less days so this was important. The native garden will charm green fingered gardeners. The home is filled with nostalgia and the patina and characteristics of long occupation. This home will appeal to people who want to live in a beautiful street within walking distance to La Cigale French Market, Parnell Kindergarten, Parnell Primary School or the CBD. You can also enjoy the privilege of being a minute from Alberon reserve and the connecting parks that can take you all the way to the University. The traditionalist will appreciate the history, the craftsmanship and intelligence that has created this very solid Double Grammar home. Imagine owning a home that has fine building materials in the battened ceilings, wide skirting boards, architraves, scotia, beautiful fireplaces, coloured glass doors and double hung windows. Upstairs are two bedrooms and two living areas. Downstairs are two more bedrooms with doors accessing the outside. Perfect for well-behaved teenagers. Of course this area could be used by guests or by working from home. In fact when the owners bought the house it was in three flats. Opportunities to live in this special little community don't come up very often. So please don't overlook this rare offering. This perfectly fine and gently worn sanctuary now waits for new owners.
