Situated in wide, tree lined Melbourne Avenue, close to Parliament House, an elegant heritage listed Forrest home has been listed for sale.

It has been sympathetically extended by architect Paul Bradley while retaining its rich historic character.

Designed by the Melbourne architectural firm Oakley and Parkes, it was constructed in 1927.

The original part of the home at 25 Melbourne Avenue has been thoughtfully maintained with an added architect designed extension.

It has a total floor area of 340 square metres.

Brickwork of the extension blends seamlessly with the original Canberra red brick and terracotta roof tiles provide uniform coverage.

Tasmanian Oak flooring extends throughout the original home. From the entry, double, glass panel doors open into the spacious living room, high, batten ceilings, picture rails and the slow combustion fireplace add to the ambience of this tranquil room.

Cedar sash windows are furnished with Roman blinds and frame the outlook over the front garden. 

It is for sale at $2.95 million through Luton Properties Dickson.
