He wasn't quite born in this house but John has called this quaint heritage cottage home since 1947 and now its finally time for him to move on. Built in 1927, the home has all of the character that you would expect in a dwelling of this era. Timber sash windows and the most charming of facades recall a bygone era and it is these things, along with the location - in Ainslie's tightly held Corroboree Park Heritage Precinct that John will miss the most.

Nestled on a beautiful block of 980m�, with an aspect and depth which allows enormous scope for further extension, the home is literally two houses away from the wonderful park itself. For those new to Canberra, or the area, this beautiful park forms part of the heart & soul of the Ainslie community. With tennis and basketball courts, free BBQ's, table tennis tables, swings & climbing equipment, you can picnic with your family amongst the ancient Eucalyptus in a tranquil setting so very close to Braddon and the CBD. If you've never lived at the city end of Ainslie then you're in for a treat - walk into Braddon and don't even worry about parking or having that extra glass of wine, go bush walking on Mt Ainslie and just enjoy the best local shops in Canberra.

The home itself has been extended once and was renovated in the early 80's but it is ready for another update. The high ceilings and terracotta roof tiles are evidence of it's 1920's construction and the hardwood rear deck and Canberra Red brick paved driveway add further charm. There is ducted gas heating, a security system and an approved games room to the rear of the garage but it is the location and potential which will be the real draw cards here. The block is too big for John and he has made a definite decision to sell so bring your cheque book to the auction.
