RARE OPPORTUNITY IN THE MOST SOUGHT SUBURB!
House Sold - Hughes ACT
** PLEASE NOTE: A CONTRACT WILL NOT BE ISSUED PRIOR TO YOU SPEAKING TO THE SELLING AGENT **
A rare opportunity exists to purchase a piece of Canberra’s history. The property on offer was built in 1964 and was one of twelve houses commissioned by the NCDC and designed by John Taylor of Leith and Bartlett for senior defense personnel and senior public servants. These homes are a wonderful example of the Melbourne regional style and are known for their strong horizontal lines. They were far superior to the usual government homes on offer and were part of the development which was known as ‘Woden Special Housing 1’. Recognized as being significant to Australia’s architectural history this development was featured in the recent ABC documentary ‘Streets of Your Town’ http://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/streets-of-your-town/ and in ‘100 Canberra Houses a Century of Capital Architecture’ by Tim Reeves and Alan Roberts.
