Nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, and bordering beautiful parkland, this home truly embodies everything that people love about living in the Inner North. Whilst the home absolutely exudes classic, bespoke charm, there are some vital modern additions worth noting:
The 3kW photovoltaic system on the roof (locked in at the old 47c tariff) generates a surplus for the current owner, allowing him to live a life that’s free of electric bills. There is also a separate solar hot water system with an electric booster. The bathrooms and laundry have also been recently renovated, and are looking great.
The updated kitchen certainly leaves room to put your own personal touches to down the line, whilst being very neat and functional so as to not require any work before moving in. The original chimney has also been very cleverly repurposed as the kitchen pantry, which will keep your food naturally cool throughout the year.
The garage is currently the home of “Tallaganda Pottery” a long-standing local business, well-known and loved by Watson residents. As is, this space offers plenty of covered storage for a workshop, and could even be turned into a home office or a flat with covered parking still available at the front. Of course, it would also be quite easy to return this to its original purpose as an enclosed garage should you wish to do so.
Throughout the home and garden, you will see evidence of the artist’s involvement. From the custom made ironbark gate that leads to the private backyard, to the ornate fish ponds found when you reach there; as well as the various creations and sculptures found peppered throughout the property.
The parkland adjacent to the property allows a huge amount of space to spread out and enjoy life, with park benches and even a playground nearby. Of course, this also means that you won’t be built out.
With so many reasons to own 9 Rooth Place, inspections are a must! Come down and fall in love with this unique part of Canberra’s Inner North.
