30 Blaxland Crescent, GRIFFITH ACT 2603 AUS


Classic Oliphant with a modern twist


The original circa 1947 Ken Oliphant designed red brick cottage has had a sympathetic architect designed extension (1996 Chapman Homes) with a contemporary twist, to become a wonderful light and airy family home with a flexible floorplan. The original part of the home retains all of its original character features including full brick construction, high ceilings with ornate cornice, terracotta roof tiles, sash windows and solid timber door frames and architraves.

The well-equipped Caesar Stone kitchen forms the central hub between the formal sitting and dining rooms at the front of home and is perched above the expansive informal sitting room at the rear, that opens to the sun soaked outdoor entertaining area which enjoys wonderful dappled sunlight through the leafy canopy of the mature parklike gardens. In addition, there is a meals area off the kitchen which opens to an elevated entertaining terrace.

The accommodation consists of four bedrooms and a study. The segregated master suite is generously proportioned and enjoys a walk in robe and a spacious ensuite bathroom. Other features include ducted gas heating in the original portion of the home, in slab heating through the extension, architectural features including vaulted ceilings and frameless corner windows, two original fireplaces, a double lock up garage with internal access. There is also an additional free standing garage.

Ideally located a short stroll to Canberra’s top schools, Manuka Village, the Kingston and Griffith shopping precincts, recreational grounds and the Parliamentary Triangle, it is ideally located for a wonderful inner south lifestyle.
