Set on a large elevated block of 1,188sqm on the high side of Duffy Street, backing Mount Ainslie Reserve and with views of Black Mountain, this could arguably be the best address in Ainslie!

Our very lucky owners have enjoyed living in the beautifully renovated and extended main residence, while receiving rent for the freestanding cottage and studio. This extremely unique configuration is the perfect property for the large family or astute investor.

A very short 5 minute commute home from the city will have you driving up your own private driveway on this battleaxe block and be welcomed home by 36 metres of bush frontage. Walk out the back gate into another world, full of kangaroos, kookaburras, other native birds and endless walking and bike trails. Whisper-quiet yet so close to the city, this property is location at its best.

The main residence, an American Southern-style home, has recently undergone a major renovation and a wide front verandah overlooks a private enclosed garden. A light filled floor plan showcases formal lounge and informal living areas. A stunning galley style kitchen is the heart of this warm and friendly home and showcases caesarstone benchtops, stainless steel appliances and large island bench. Features floating timber look floors in the family room, new designer bathroom and ensuite and reverse cycle air-conditioning

Relax or entertain under a covered patio which overlooks a large backyard to the tranquil views of the reserve.

The second building is a charming garden cottage featuring a kitchen, family room, bedroom and study with the comforts of gas heating and cooling. Surrounded by private gardens, make this an ideal guest or teenagers' retreat or home-business.

This incredible home just keeps on giving with a third building, a large and sundrenched studio with a spacious open plan, sink, storage shelves and bathroom. Large glass doors again capture the bush vista

A short stroll through the park will take you to the Ainslie shops, where you will find a supermarket, medical centre, pharmacy, post office, newsagency, cafes, a pub and playgrounds. The nearby bus stop will take you directly to the Canberra City Centre, ANU and the Dickson Shops, as well numerous schools nearby.

Investors looking for rental return should note, the cottage and gallery alone were leased at $810 (approx) per week in 2018 and now would return approximately $1000 per week. Thinking about retiring and wanting an additional income, live in one and rent the other two. Maybe retire on the coast and rent all three.

Opportunities like this do not come around often. so be sure to put this property at the top of your shopping list.
