77 Sturt Avenue,
Art DecoFancy some genuine inter-war Art Deco inspired architecture, and a renovation project? If so, 77 Sturt Avenue is the most dynamic, vision inspiring option available in the Inner South marketplace in many years. Authentic, unblemished and awaiting a creative mind to restore its magnificent original features with a sympathetic modernisation. Built in full brick and reflecting the P&O style of the Art Deco period this three bedroom home, located in Canberra's Inner South, presents a visually interesting and structurally striking facade while steering away from the common geometric forms and traditional lines that are so frequently seen today. A front porch opens into a generous foyer, towering ceilings and period light fittings immediately impress, as does a curved internal wall, sweeping from the three bedrooms around to a modest but well proportioned bathroom. Well zoned, the huge eat in kitchen opens to a lovely cosy lounge/ dining and onto an elevated rear deck. Not fussy, yet with vibe, there are gems to restore at every glance, from the hardwood flooring to ornate cornices. Ideally positioned on a corner block, set back from the street by a hedge of flowering shrubs and a meandering lawn, the school access from this location is unbeatable, with Narrabundah College, St Edmund's, St Clare's and St Benedict's Primary Schools all within a few minutes’ walk from the property. Also, incredibly handy access to the Airport, Manuka and Kingston shopping precincts, and the Fyshwick markets.
